1945--Sergent Clarence Magariea of Carlisle KY, US Infantryman of the 83rd Division holds two captured German SS troopers at bay against a wall in Sart, Belgium. The crossed legs and defiant look of the one on the right and the exposed film thrown down in the snow in front of them make this an interesting picture. Sart was a town where some American army units fell back to after the last great German offensive of the war...In Sart today there is as modest monument to the 82nd Airborne.
Adolf Hitler visits the city of Eshelbronn after an allied bombing raid in 1944. This is a rare image of the Leader reaching out to see with his own eyes the suffering of the German people. As a matter of routine, Hitler did not take to the streets of bombed cities -- not even Berlin's.
