Eastern Front, 1941: Two German infantry stay close to the ground near a burning house. After the initial 3 weeks of Barbarossa, German troops run into increasingly bitter fighting, something they were unaccustomed of after the easy victories of 1939-40 and the blitz through the Balkans. Another thing also caught their attention: KIA numbers climbed fast as the Russians became desperate and tried to hold their ground.

German panzers are trying to negotiate an obstacle somewhere in the Balkans, 1941. Lots of lumber attempts to replace the collapsed bridge. The absence of paved roads in the Balkans was not as bad as that in Russia but, still, there was no road system that could allow armored forces to move fast.

The liner "Queen Elizabeth" bringing American troops into NY Harbor at the end of WW II, 1945. Queen Elizabeth joined the war effort as a troopship in 1940. Her high speed allowed her to travel without escort as she could outrun U-boats easily. In the five years of troopship service, she carried 750,000 troops and covered half a million miles.

Quick nap for a Waffen SS grenadier in full camouflage kit and carrying the indestructible Zeiss field glasses, standard issue for the German army of the time. Note the truck's headlight cover visible behind the sleeping man.

Army Group South, June 1943: Panzer VI crew cleaning the tank's barrel with a ram rod, while commander glasses the horizon. Note the skirts fixed on the turret and designed to stop anti-tank rounds from reaching the turret wall. Cleaning the barrel is one of the artilleryman's oldest jobs -- the ram rod remains a part of the job even today.
