"Very good CD. The sound is clear and crisp. The selection of marches is excellent. As a whole, I think most of the marches are as good as, if not better, than many Sousa marches. My favorite on the CD is Bayerischer Defiliermarsch and my least favorite is, ironically, Unter Dem Doppeladler. I am a graduate of a military college and have heard and marched to my share of marches and rank many on this CD near the top of my list of favorites."

"I guess after all that horrid Nazi business, it has become majorly politically incorrect to do German military music that sounds like, well, German Military Music - in other words the kind of stuff that would inspire young Rhinelanders to romp & stomp their way to Paris.
Anyway that is the impression I got after listening to this CD. It just lacks the "kick" that I look for in military music (which I mostly listen to kick myself in the butt when I workout)
Instead it sounded to me more like middle aged men playing in an ompa band outside a hoffbraugh.
Nevertheless as ompa music it is well done and if you are looking for that this CD is a good choice. But I rate it a 3 since it is advertised as Military Music.
A better recording, if you can find it, is "Prussia's Glory" - World War 1 era German military music with all the punch."

"This album features quality, professional, precise music from all of the different bands/musicians. (But would you expect anything less from German musicians?) My favorite march of all time is Alte Kameraden (with no apologies to Sousa). The Euphonium countermelody musician rivals that of Simone Mantia.Alot of you will recognize "Einzug der Gladiatoren" ("Enter the Gladiator"), and "Unter Dem Doppeladler" ("Under Double Eagle"), although I disagree with the maestro's use of ritard, fermata, and ralliando, in "Under Double Eagle"."
