Yes. Indeed. This Nazi/WW2 history-documentary from 1962 certainly had its fair share of good points, as well as its decidedly bad points, too.

Topping the list of its most detrimental deficits of all was having to endure listening to Hollywood, glamour queen, Marlene Dietrich do the voice-over narration.

Delivering her "spiel" in a strictly "phone-in" fashion - Dietrich had a really annoying habit of pronouncing her r's as if they were w's. For example - She pronounced the word "brave" as "bwave", and "great" as "gweat"..... (Get the picture?)

As you can well-imagine - Listening to Dietrich ramble on this way with her extra-thick, German accent quickly began to grate on my nerves like you wouldn't believe.

Had this history-documentary offered the viewer the option for subtitles (which it didn't), then, yes, I could have easily turned a total deaf-ear to that doofus Dietrich (who came across to me sounding like a female Elmer Fudd).

Anyway - On the positive side - This documentary certainly did contain some really excellent, vintage, newsreel footage that made it a worthwhile program to watch, in the long run.
