    Agree...The Human side.....they probably just as much hated the war and wished it was over..just by looking at their faces. Thanks for showing this Horst.

    Great video. Most were just normal soldiers doing their job.

    Some very nice shots of the FSJ and HJ in Normandy , the last section is one of the return of POW's from Russia in the 1950's , some very emotional scenes as some had been in captivity for 10 years !!
