GERMAN POWs (67 K)

POWs on the Run

German POWs run down a road as a Sherman "flail" tank advances outside of St. Lo, France, July 1944 (note the chains mounted on the front of the tank that are visible beneath it; these chains were spun at high speed and "flailed" the roadway in order to explode mines) [NLR-PHOCO-65638(207)].
