Only one of them is German, the one with the soft hat obviously, the other are Italian paratroopers.

Cris ha ragione, e non solo, perchè l'unico settore di fronte in quel periodo in cui paracadutisti tedeschi ed italiani hanno combattuto insieme è ad Anzio. Quindi le tre foto collegate non sono a Cassino
