Two young German Wehrmacht soldiers surrender to Allied forces along a roadside during the Battle of the Bulge. If you look carefully, the soldier on the right is wearing US gaiters. The battle was Germany’s planned offensive with the primary goal to recapture the important Belgian harbor city of Antwerp from the Allies. The Battle of the Bulge is one of the most important Batlle in the entire World War 2. Photo taken Near Snamont, Liège, Wallonia, Belgium. 1 January 1945.
