Members of a Luftwaffe field division are following their officer during the German summer offensive on the eastern front in 1942. From early 1942 onward, the German army was strengthened by airforce and naval personnel. The brand new equipment and the ‘innocent’ look of these men indicate they have not taken part in actual fighting yet. No doubt, this would soon change. The MP40 submachine gun is of the second production type. Russia, Spring or Summer 1942.
