SS Division "Prinz Eugen" gets a war correspondent platoon. At the Belgrade railway station, members of the 8th Platoon, SS War Correspondent Battalion, celebrate their arrival in the Yugoslav capital with a mug of beer. They were sent to Yugoslavia to attach to the newly-formed SS Division "Prinz Eugen" and report on its upcoming actions. They will use most of their time in the capital to take pictures of Soldiers' Radio Belgrade, the famous radio station that launched the hit song "Lili Marleen".

SS-divizija "Princ Eugen" dobija ratnodopisnički vod. Na železničkoj stanici u Beogradu, pripadnici 8. voda Ratnodopisničkog bataljona SS-a proslavljaju svoj dolazak u jugoslovensku prestonicu uz kriglu piva. U Jugoslaviju su poslati da bi se priključili novoformiranoj SS-diviziji "Princ Eugen" i izveštavali o njenim predstojećim akcijama. Većinu svog vremena u prestonici iskoristiće za fotografisanje Vojničkog radija Beograd, čuvene radio-stanice koja je lansirala hit-pesmu "Lili Marlen".
