    When i try to see beyond these pics, i try to imagine how it must have felt to be dressed in rags and armed with whatever guns that were avaliable.

    The Party was responsible for arming Volkssturm-units, not the Wehrmacht...It wasn't unusual for Volkssturm units to disband due to lack of firearms/ammunition...Or they found themselves armed with nothing more than a Panzerfaust...after firing the Panzerfaust they were on their own...The Russians often executed Volkssturm as Partisans or Werwolves, btw...
    cheers, Glenn

    Once you fired your Panzerfaust, you could use the tube as a club

    A question though, is the belt on the volkstrum mannequin an atypical example of what would have been used? From my little experience, it looks like an officers belt.
