    Saw this one before, but didn't saved it and now I know more information.

    I'll soon update the ones where the Germans help Belgians which they shot first.

    Camera has some damn trouble with taking pictures..

    Anyway,
    As I said helping the enemy.. This could be on any way, that's why I share this photo with you.

    This officer was made POW and coƶperated to show everything on the map. An officer doesn't have to point anything on the map, but he coƶperated so a way of helping.

    This thread reminds me of one of Don Stiver's excellent paintings. Don Stiver's did a painting that showed both German and American Medics helping each other out with wounded from both sides, during; the Battle of the Bulge. Sorry I don't have a link to his painting but, it can be found on his web site and or on David Pentland's website.

    Excellent photos BTW.

    Hi Skipper, which link did you try? The one I go to all the time is: Military Art Prints of David Pentland and once inside, you can do a search for Don Stivors. I can't remember if his BoB painting is still shown on Pentland's site but, I know it was still shown on Stivors site. I can't remember if this is the exact link or not but try: www.donstivors.com Ill try to look around as soon as I have more time and will get you that link ;-))

    A hint on Don Stivors is that he mainly does US Civil War paintings-which are excellent. I like him much better than Don Trioni - though Trioni is an excellent artist as well.

    Hi Skipper, glad you saw it. His artwork is excellent isn't it? ;-)) I want to order a print but don't know when thats going to be feasable. I've been a Stivors fan for about 25 years now.

    Waffen SS Soldat helping the Russian gets my vote as best pic.
    Second is the US Medic whow as too late to save the German soldier, the medic looks physically sick and in despair that he could do nothing..

    Wow, this is a great thread with some amazing photos. It's nice that even in the most inhumane thing such as war, we can see small bits of goodness like this shining through.

    I wonder how many friendships began from countless moments just like these?
