May 1945, Prague: Retreating SS troops after an agreement with local resistance for safe passage. On May 9, one day after this photo was taken, the Red Army arrived as "liberator." US recon troops already in the suburbs were ordered NOT to help the resistance due to a political agreement with Stalin. Even the good guys make terrible mistakes that cost rivers of innocent blood.
