Fall of Deventer: shots of Canadian infantrymen walking into Deventer, Holland, past smoking ruins. HAS of tanks loaded with men rolling past the camera. Cut to soldier bathing his aching feet in river. Cut to tank being floated across river on raft. Soldiers can be seen marching in single file, Canadian Army vehicles entering town - windmill in the background. German prisoners are herded past the camera by soldiers riding a jeep. Shots of Deventer fire engine fighting a fire. Traitors and their families, arms in the air, are marched past the camera. Shots of prisoners of war marching to the station. Canadian soldiers marching into Deventer in single file. Civilians standing by. Cut to crowd cheering. A Red Cross truck flying the Stars and Stripes and the Union Jack comes speeding by.
