    It was attitudes like these that generally made surrender and captivity far far worse than they should have experienced...they had to find out the hard way that they were no longer the übermensch and Lords of the land that they had been for so long.

    The second photo reflects 17th SS troops after capture having their kit inspected by the Americans.
