Upon the arrival of the Nazis at the Republic of Hatay, he was ordered by Vogel to travel on one of the trucks driven by Nazi drivers during the quest of the Temple of the Sun. When the archaeologist Indiana Jones appeared on the scene to rescue his father Henry Walton Jones, Senior and Marcus Brody from Vogel, who had took them as hostages inside his tank, the First German Soldier along with his companions were called by Vogel to help him kill Indiana.
Determined to help, the First German Soldier jumped from the truck and attacked Jones, but this one hit him in the back of the tank, causing his cap to be dragged by the metal treads of the vehicle and flattened on the ground. Two of his teammates jumped out of the truck to help Vogel, lining up behind him, but Indy hit him with his pistol in the face and then shot him in the chest, killing him and his teammates in the process. His body subsquently fell from the tank to the desertic ground.
Behind the scenes Edit
During the early development of the film's original script, written by Jeffrey Boam, the First German Soldier was originally going to not exist in the story. Instead, the only enemies who were going to fight against Indiana Jones were originally Walter Chandler (Walter Donovan in the final film) and the Hatay Tank Driver.
