"Posing as a West German TV production crew, the two East German directors of  
 this film persuaded a former leading German mercenary of the Congo civil war 
 (one of many!) to discuss his activities and heroic achievements in what
 is surely one of the most sensational exposes of its kind. Continually smiling 
 or laughing, this man, a self-acknowledged Nazi, proudly reveals that he went 
 to the Congo to save Western civilization from Bolshevism -- to complete the 
 work of the Nazis. Dressed in his military jungle uniform (with his Second 
 World War decorations) he waxes eloquent about the 'colors' of South Africa, 
 'explains' apartheid, and freely discusses his 'adventures'. Shots of corpses, 
 tortures, and executions of Blacks are intercut. It is not often that one can 
 see and hear a real, 'live' Nazi in action, talking (more or less) freely 
 because he presumed himself to be among friends instead of with two of the 
 most clever political propagandists of our time, working for the other side."
