helping emeny,i have a great one!
I don't know if any one has mention this one before yet!
It's in the book called * WWII in Photographs*
Two captured German Paratroopers soldiers are carring an injured British soldier too saftey!
We all have to remember, after all that we are all human
Although this photo was posted above, no detailed information
was provided. I found it two weeks ago at the NARA and
It features Medic James L. Parks of the 133rd
Infantry Regiment carrying a wounded German through the streets of
S. Angelo d'Alife, Italy, on 23 October 1943.
If anyone wants a high-res copy, just let me know.
By the way, the 34th Infantry Division is holding its reunion
next week in Carlisle, PA.
this is a great thread.........it's nice to know that the good in some people will always come out in times of need
Here is another photo I found and scanned at the NARA.
I have found 2 photos:
Looks like Russians and Germans.
German medic giving aid to wounded Russian. Note the knocked out T34 in the background.
This might help
Crewmen from the U-505 getting a shower:
Oberleutnant Lange, wounded, brought aboard the USS Guadalcanal
What might that be on the german soldier's uniform? Looks like a star...
does anyone have that photo of the panzerbeobachtungswagen III ausf H carrying russian prisoners?. i have the photo in a book but my scanner is broken. anyway the tank is carrying russian prisoners to the rear i think, but like most photos you cant really determine whats happening (it could be carrying hiwis to the front) but if the tank is indeed carrying prisoners to the rear it is a very nice gesture to carry them rather than make them march. the photo is taken past 1942 due to dunkelgelb colour so fuel would have been an issue but this tank crew still decided to take on the extra weight.
hahahahaha collector i think that......is a russian in a german uniform with the star representing hes russian. because his original uniform might have been damaged beyond repair. also look at the collar no rank insignia. wow dude if im right then this photo is right out of place.
It looked really weird, because the officers seemed so friendly against him and the didnt have their guns out
Haha, if he is a russian soldier in German uniform, then he'd have some very serious questions to answer from his superiors...
Collector....this photo looks like a friendly interrogation.
Great thread, worthy of a 'sticky'
There were at least a million former Red Army soldiers who fought for the Wehrmacht after they had been captured by the Germans. So this might be a former Red Army soldier being interrogated by his "new" captors trying to convince them he was fighting in the "enemy's" uniform under duress.
I'm pretty sure the Soviets didn't buy the story in the end. There was an interesting section in the book Normandy when an observer from the SU was talking to the American Commander in one area and he asked how many prisoners the Americans were taking.
He was told that many of those captured had no will to fight, possibly because a great number of them were Koreans, Poles and Russians. He was quite upset with the report. Apparently not because of the non-prowess in battle, but because the POWs contained so many former Red Army personnel.
