German POWs in Berlin - 1945.
So, they could be Hitler's extra resources.

GLANCE TO THE PAST.

Russia. Eastern front.

They are smiling, and expecting to get Moscow.
At the fist year of Barbarosa.

German solders liked to make and store such photos, but when they became to be POWs these photos condemned them to death.

About what is thinking this old solder? He could remember glorious times when great parades took place here.

A tank-driver Gefreiter, exhausted by the panzers' "drive to the sea" through France in May 1940, enjoys a cigarette by his tank. He has not opted to wear his M1935 feldgrau field greatcoat over his M1934 special tank-crew uniform to protect it from the grim of battle. Note the drivers' goggles, civilian shirt and M1936 pullover...

Tunisia, April 1943. Mechanized infantrymen from 15th Panzer Division, probably from the 115th Mechanised Regiment, taken prisoner at the Battle of Gabes Gap. Their expressions at the prospect of captivity vary from relief (third left), through trepidation (right) to dejection (second left)!
