Amazing photos, InvisibleChurch. Can’t you just feel the cold?! It just looks bitterly cold.
They are better men than me.
That photo of Adolph looks like der Untergaang.
Nice pix, very interesting. The one of the 15 year old German kid was actually very sad.
I didn’t see John Wayne in any of those photographs. What’s up with that?!?
BTW, were those photos colorized, or where they originally in color?
My husband’s Uncle was there. He told family members that he was never so cold in his life and hoped he would never be cold again.
Better than me too!
Not really. The war was over for him and on much better terms than his counterparts on the Eastern Front faced.
Chances are good he went on to live a long and comfortable life in West Germany.
He might not have known it at the time but he was very fortunate.
Needless to say, he thought highly of George Patton and the Third Army.
Hitler’s looking a little photoshopped there!
for your file.
And I complain about shaving with cold water. One tough dude.
My brother-in-law’s father was in the march to relieve Brigadier General Anthony McAuliffe. The only comment I ever heard about his march was that he ‘didn’t like Patton much.’
Too bad the men who experienced this wouldn’t talk about it much. My own father was a pilot instructor. He got orders to go overseas three times, but they were always rescinded. They were too desperate for instructors.
Thank you so much for this. My late father fought in this battle. I know it’s silly, but when I see pics/films from the BOTB, I always look at the faces to see if one of them might be him.
