    Great action pictures, I love the camo. The Fallschirmjager is a weird picture. It looks like somebody ran up and killed him while he was setting his MG 43 up. There's no empty brass that I can see in the picture to suggest he ever shot it. Maybe a mortar or grenade. Thanks for sharing.

    Thought shall be the harder , heart the keener,
    Courage the greater as our strength faileth.
    Here lies our leader ,in the dust of his greatness.
    Who leaves him now , be damned forever.
    We who are old now shall not leave this Battle,
    But lie at his feet , in the dust with our leader

    i'm pretty sure that the last picture is a modern staged repro as i've seen it on other sites as well, so not original. I'd have similar concerns with the first one.

    Were these from e-bay??
