Waffen-SS Grenadiers
During a brief lull in the fighting, an unidentified Waffen-SS unit sitting down in weary, battle-tired poses. Left knee raised with his left arm resting on it, makes you wonder what happened next. The Panzergrenadiers of the Waffen-SS bore the weight of the fighting in all divisions often carrying on to complete exhaustion and their faces tell you more about them than any report. Not to mention they were most often executed when falling in Soviet hands mistakenly identified with the branches of the infamous SS-Totenkopfverbände or the Allgemeine-SS.
