    Nice find. It's time to see some true humanity in the field. I just wish he had a close up so we could read the Lieutenant's tombstone.

      During the Hurtgen Forest fighting the Bn aid station on the Kall trail changed hands so frequently that surgeons and medical personnel from both sides served side by side, treating any and all soldiers. BTW, the aid station dugout still exists today.

      This is one of my favorite war prints:

            The print showed up in one of the many magazines on WWII a couple of years ago, IIRC

              Very inspirational, It reminds of the story of a German U-boat that had just
              sunk a lone merchant ship off of Africa. There was more crewmen then the
              sub could handle so they had them sit on the subs deck and others tied
              life boats to the sub as well. I think they were trying to tow them closer to
              shore, anyway because the sub threat at that time was so bad, the
              commander in charge of US forces didn't care about the surviours and ordered
              the sub attacked.

              US planes did attack the sub, killing mostly their own guys that were on the
              deck. The sub had no choice but to leave them and dive. Sad

                    Wasn't this one of the main reasons why U-boat commanders were ordered not to rescue survivors?

                        Helping injured enemy is 1 thing , but in that video it says a German officer took a bullet for a allied soldier. Thats why .

                          This was the Laconia incident. Here's a link:

                              Yeah that was pretty much the end of helping out the victims of the
                              ship that the u-boat just sunk.
