Please try a search for James Nachtwey, in the tradition of Robert Capa.

Too many photos, links, and documentaries to mention, sorry...

v60pih,

The photo is well known, and it was called a fake / photomontage already decades ago. (?)
Likewise, this photo was published in some illustrated books about the Second World War.

German Soldier at the Moment of Death, Ukraine 1943 https://worldwar2database.com/gallery/wwii0209

Perhaps, an expert on historical photos here on the forum can shed some light on this (unresolved) issue, that would be desirable.

I was reacting on the question from TS.
