Panzergrenadiers – Kampfgruppe Hansen – Wacht am Rhein

Panzergrenadiers from Kampfgruppe Hansen (one of the three large kampfgruppe of the Leibstandarte Division) take a cigarette brake. Such a state was the norm during combat operations. This photograph was taken after the action on the Poteau and Recht road, in early hours of 18 December 1944.
