Während der Olympischen Sommerspiele 1936 begegnen sich die junge Inge Wagner und der Fliegeroffizier Herbert Koch. Bereits nach wenigen Tagen verlieben sie sich ineinander. Sie schmieden Pläne für eine gemeinsame Zukunft. Doch bevor sie heiraten können, wird Herbert zur Legion Condor nach Spanien abkommandiert. Da die Mission strengster Geheimhaltung unterliegt, was ein Verbot von Briefkontakt in die Heimat einschließt, muss er abreisen, ohne Inge eine Erklärung geben und sich in der Folgezeit melden zu können...

During the 1936 summer olympics in Berlin, the young Inge Wagner meets a Luftwaffe officer, Herbert Koch.  After only a few days in each other's company, they fall hopelessly in love.  However, before they can marry, Herbert is sent off to Spain as part of the Legion Condor to help Franco's side in the Spanish Civil War.  Since the mission is secret, he can't tell anyone, even Inge, about his orders, nor can he make contact with anyone while in Spain.  Finally, after suffering a bad wound in combat, Herbert writes Inge a letter, but this ends up getting lost in the mail.  Not getting an answer back, Herbert becomes disappointed and decides not to write again.  Inge, however, has not forgotten Herbert and is willing to wait for him.

A very entertaining film with good action scenes and lots of interesting music, some of which can be heard on our 6 CD Set:  Entertaining the German Army
