    Is that his arm on the floor?

    I don't think it is. To me, it looks it is a right hand and he has his.

    Yeah, this is real action, only 8 photographs weren't damaged in that series of pictures... the rest was accidentally destroyed by an excited photo-lab assistant, who exposed the film to too much heat...

    If memory serves me right. They are two Shermans (Unit escapes me) advancing on Cologne Cathedral and get hit by a Panther. The second picture shows a 'tankie' rolling badly injured off the engine deck.

    German infantry shelter behind a Sdkfz 251 (just out of view on the left) while under small arms fire. One infantryman is clearly wounded and lying in the road and being attend by a comrade. This is a screen shot from Deutshe Wochenschau 1942. I believe this footage was documenting the German approach to Rostov.
