An unexpected defender of Monte Cassino

Post by Steve » 10 Jun 2017 23:01

When looking at photos about Monte Cassino http://www.iwm.org.uk/collections/item/object/205254395 I came across this one labelled body of a German female paratrooper. I have never come across any mention of females serving with the parachute units defending Monte Cassino previously. Can anyone shed any light on female fallschirmjager at Cassino.

I can even make out the body details in this black/white image, Steve. The less I see the caption supported.
