    Just for additional info: The Asian soldier in the second photo is the Korean Yang Kyoungjong, whose WW2 experiences were quite remarkable, having served in the Japanese, Soviet and German armies.

    Thanks HPL, every day's a school day! I'm embarrassed to say this is the first I'd heard of him, but an interesting story nevertheless.

    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. Many of them could not handle the realization.

    The vehicle is a VW Type 128, the prototype/pre-serie of the VW 166 Schwimmwagen. At least one example survives to this day
