"The Last Battle" as written by and Paer Sundstroem Joakim Broden....
5th of May, V day is just around the corner
1945 the Fuhrer reign is at its end

Jenny at the gates, as the SS open fire
There's no time to waste, the final battle has begun

After the downfall, a castle besieged
Facing the Nazis awaiting relief
Gangl and Lee and their men set the prisoners free

An it's the end of the line of the final journey
Enemies leaving the past
And it's American troops and the German army
Joining together at last

One last fight, it's the death throes of the 3rd Reich
Justice shall be done, the final battle remains

Ammo is running low, they're depleting their machine guns
Every bullet counts until surrender is announced

After the downfall, a castle relieved
Defeating the Nazis who held them besieged
Gangl and Lee and their men set the prisoners free

An it's the end of the line of the final journey
Enemies leaving the past
And it's American troops and the German army
Joining together at last

From the foot of the alps to the shores of the sea
From the foot of the alps to the shores of the sea
From the home of the brave, from the land of the free
From the foot of the alps to the shores of the sea

An it's the end of the line of the final journey
Enemies leaving the past
And it's American troops and the German army
Joining together at last

An it's the end of the line of the final journey
Enemies leaving the past
And it's American troops and the German army
Joining together at last

    Song MeaningAfter the downfall of the 3rd Reich, on the 5th of May 1945, a strange battle took place in teh Tyrolean Mountains in Itter, Austria. Soldiers of the Wehrmacht and the US army joined forces and fought together against the SS to save the lives of prisoners being held in the castle of Itter. Under the command of American Captain John C. Lee and German Major Josef Gangl the castle was defended by less than 30 German and American soldiers together with the French former prisoners of teh castle. Together, and with a little help from their Sherman Tank "Besotten Jenny", who was placed at the main entrance, they managed to hold the 100-150 mens strong Waffen SS unit at bay until they were relieved by the allies
