German war propaganda

This photo, which looks prepared, is probably made for the German war propaganda. On the foreground a motorcycle with sidecar used by dispatch riders and on the background a Focke Wulf 189 Uhu used for reconnaissance and as light bomber.

American soldiers

A group of American soldiers managing some kind of electronic gear.

Sherman medium tank

Prepared photo of a Sherman medium tank of the US Army with infantry soldiers fighting from the rear of the tank. In real combat, it was very unusual this behaviour. Usually the soldiers would follow the tank using it as a shield. Only the Red Army used often the method of soldiers fighting while mounted on the tanks.
