Picture on the cover ( and inside) of "Blood & Honor" by Luther 12-SS Hitlerjugend
Gues its a III/26 reg member,full patern 44 ?


The expression on this boy's face tells alot,
I think for his age he have seen a lot af misery, he has been in action,
and is looking in a unsurtain future,
For me this pic stands for the hard fighting in the Caen-sector.

Heres mine

I chose it because of what I think it represents to me

To, the picture shows the reality of war. The soldier is sad, his unit is defeated, his fate is uncertain, and worse, many of his friends with who he spilt blood with, are now dead
