I’ve always been fascinated by the “rest of the story”. The battlefield tales are interesting, but learning how local residents survived or rebuilt after the battle is infinitely more interesting. I came across this footage of Germans surrendering at the end of the war. Fascinating look at how things can turn from brutal to something much different.
There’s also a TON of diorama ideas here!
The moment I posted this link, I went back to the video. It had been playing and I noticed that the FAMO mit Flak vehicle was driving along in the video. Hilarious, considering finding pictures of this low production, end of the war vehicle has been incredible hard. And now here’s a color video! Nice!
