Russian panorama photograph knocked out Stug with crashed stuka Russian press photograph showing soldiers inspecting a knocked out Stug (Sturmgeschütz III) with the wreck of a shot down Stuka dive bomber next to it (I think undercarridge looks like Stuka but someone else may know better - as it may be retractable). The panorama is made from two photos that have been taped together to give the panorama effect showing the aftermath of a battle sometime in the summer of 1944.
German gun crew cleaning 3.7 cm Pak guns - Photograph Set
Set of five photos form the same solider - showing 3.7cm Pak crews washing their guns down in a small coastal fishing town - possibly in Norway but more likely France as the buildings are stone as opposed to wood construction, and the other photos in the set also appear to be France so summer 1940. The other photos show soldiers marching, embarking on a troop train, and a squad resting up in full gear. The final shot graves of fallen comrades.

DECISION BEFORE DAWN 1951 - My Must watch Films
One of the best feature films from the period immediately after the war. DECISION BEFORE DAWN (Ruining Time 119-120 minutes) premiered in the US 1951, directed by Anatole Litvak; staring Oskar Werner & Richard Basehart. It is one of the most authentic looking World War II films produced since the war. Depicting a spy story set against the last days of the war in Europe. Shot on location in 1950 in Germany including: Geiselgasteig, Mannheim, Munich, Nuremberg & Wrzberg. The film takes place against the backdrop of the still bomb damaged city’s of Germany and using: authentic uniforms, equipment & actors who had been on both sides of the conflict. It has a wonderful atmosphere that captures the period & mood of the times which few other films have equalled.

German Field Fortifications and Bunker Construction on the Atlantic Wall
3 original photographs I recently acquired - showing feild work fortifications and the construction of a concrete bunker on the Atlantic Wall. The wooden frame and steel reinforcing rods can be seen prior to pouring the concrete in one image. The photographs appear to be taken in northern France west of the Normandy landing area - the only clue to the area, might be written on one of the ammunition boxes pictured is the word ‘Bandes’; which is an area south of Saint Brieuc, France, also the country side seems consistent with that area of France, however this is just my best guess and may not be correct. The photos themselves were probably taken by members of Organisation Todt tasked with construction of the defences for the Atlantic Wall in northern France.
Panzer IV Ausf. D moves through a village in Russia 1941/42 - Photograph New edition to my photo collection, bought from Germany - looking in more detail, it is either Panzer IV Ausf. D or Ausf. F and I am leaning toward the D as the front gunner/drivers armour plate is stepped and with protected drivers slit block. However one odd thing is the bow machine gun appears to have the rounder surround of the Ausf A
