Photograph of a enlisted man, rank private
the helmet is a M35, M40 or M42 w/ Eagle decal on left side, and National Tri-color of
Black/White/Red on right side.
Decals were gradually abandoned as the war
progressed, by wars end such insignia had
been eliminated.

The German soldier who fought in WWII, still
continues to fascinate us to this day.
They never let go their discipline they were the most motivated fighting men of the war.
