* The mid-1970s Creator/DCComics story ''Blitzkrieg'' follows three German soldiers throughout Nazi-occupied Europe. While they're not explicitly shown to be members of the Nazi party, they're not simply the [[MyCountryRightOrWrong "just fighting for my country"]] type either, engaging in various atrocities such as the Malmédy massacre of Allied prisoners of war and the liquidation of the Warsaw Ghetto.

** The episode "[[Recap/TheTwilightZoneS1E10JudgementNight Judgement Night]]" reveals in its twist ending that the protagonist, Karl Lanser, was a German Uboat captain who torpedoed a civilian ship against the advice of his men. As [[IronicHell Hell's]] punishment, Lanser is forced to live through the moment as a amnesiac passenger, and then be killed himself by his own [[IHatePastMe past self]]. Oddly amnesiac Lanser is shown to be hurt by the passenger's deaths, perhaps due to the change in perspective showing them as people rather [[AMillionIsAStatistic then targets]].

He ends up helping a woman escape from them and later kills and [[RedemptionEqualsDeath is killed]] by a bunch of other Nazis, then the main part of the real story begins.
