Port engine prop is not even bent...altough it is feathered as it should be. Terrain looks wey weird and plants suspiciously strange. I am sure a B-24 is a good flier when belly empty and exhausted all fuel, but still...those airmen were some lucky campers. :)
Hmm looking closer, propeller on engine No1 (above right in the picture, Left wing) is in tact, no bend or other sign of collision...
Unless the picture is well tampered, I can only think its a fake... anybody else got any idea??

Gentlemen,

I'll be adding a few photos from Deakin's "Embattled Mountain" but since I just broke charity when it comes to scanning,I would really appreciate your tips- how can I,for example clear this photo of these shady curves?

There is something in common to all of pictures of partisans taken during the Fifth Offensive: expresion of utter exhaustion and uncertainty on their faces. Very powerful photos in my opinion...

Next set of photos comes from "Grosse Geschichte des Dritten Reiches und des Zweiten Weltkrieges". First one is a German notification (can't remember a more suitable word-help me on that one): "100.000 Reichsmark in Gold will be paid to the person who delivers communist leader Tio,dead or alive." Similar notification concerning Draza Mihailovic was issued as well.
