Example text

44 German soldiers were taught that even 15-20 centimeters (68 inches) of cover might save their lives. This Gebirgsjager wears a virtually empty rucksack on his back. A patrol works its way through a birch forest. Signs of enemy movement were easy to detect in the snow; not just by footprints, but by snow knocked off bushes and low limbs. An alert patrol could detect such disturbances from a distance while one had to be almost on top of footprints before spotting them. The MG34 machine gun has been whitewashed, an unusual practice.

The Wehrmachts Adler (eagle) was not usually sewn to anoraks or other winter camouflage clothing. A knitted white wool cover has been fitted to his field cap. This was designed for the mountain cap (BergmOtze). His hands are protected by waterproof three-finger mittens. Winter 1943/44. This NCO or officer is wearing the two-piece snowsuit (Schneetarnanzug) with the hood over his universal field cap. The cords over his neck are the retaining cord for the mittens and their white covers. Note the friend-or-foe colored identification bands.

Winter 1943/44. 48 A wounded soldier is secured to a small sled on which he will be pulled back to friendly lines for treatment. Being unable to move and so low to the snow he would quickly become extremely cold. It was essential that he be insulated with multiple blankets and straw. In extremely cold weather where circulation in the limbs is reduced, the danger of contracting gangrene was very high. Winter 1943/44. Pioneer troops hack out a hasty antitank ditch as a temporary roadblock during the seemingly endless retreat.
