1943

Eastern Front – Panzergrenadier counter-attack

Panzer IV  advancing with infantry, southern Russia, December 1943.

Some of them start to jump out of the trenches and run towards their rear without their ries. Two of them are still standing behind a heavy machine gun and firing. Still at full pelt, I empty my magazine at the pair of them and hit them. Then I slip on the ice on the rim of the trench and dive headlong into it.
