Okay history buffs, here's one for you.
What was an American group called the USFGR doing with the German 7th Panzer Division during Operation Barbarossa? Might they have been merely observers or news people, or perhaps Geneva convention compliance officers? I ask because I stumbled upon a photo album on ebay at WWII Panzer Officer Photo Album which includes the following pictures:
I recognize that the German invasion of Russia commenced six months before Pearl Harbor and that the US and Germany were at peace, but I am taken aback to learn that US personnel of some sort were with German forces. I can find nothing that translates what the acronym USFGR represents.
As the saying goes: "You learn something new everyday".
