There's Always Good People In Both Sides Of a Conflict

✪ 23 year old German soldier Manfred Pernass, is about to die at the hands of US forces at Henri-Chapelle on 23-12-1944. He, Oberfähnrich  Günther Billing and Gefreiter Wilhelm Schmidt were captured wearing US uniforms for Operation Greif ("Griffin"). They were all executed. Their Waffen-SS commander, Otto Skorzeny, would,  after the war, also be charged but acquitted. Their (non-combat) use of enemy uniforms ended up being considered a legitimate ruse by the tribunal.

Soviet propaganda operatives understandably did everything they could to demonize enemy forces, including elaborate photographic manipulation. The famous image above of what appears to be a brutal, point-blank execution of two women started out as a simple battlefield snapshot of a German soldier and a Russian machine gun.
