This is the complete frame of one of the most famous stills from the German side in World War II. It is one of several taken (along with newsreel film) on December 18, 1944 near Poteau, Belgium during the Battle of the Bulge. The men are smoking captured American cigarettes, and they are part of the 1st SS Panzer Division, Kampfgruppe Hansen. The man on the left is holding an FN High Power pistol, and is draped in a 7.92mm MG42 ammunition belt. He has been wrongly identified as Walter Armbrusch.
