End of August 1944: after the collapse of the front in France, a German unit is retreating towards Belgium.
Troop movements are a common sight throughout the day, from regular soldiers on foot or on bike

Image

Over trucks and all other sorts of vehicles

Image

Signs of various units try to create a bit of structure in the chaos.

The Allied air supremacy also didnt help to improve the German moral. The once mighty Luftwaffe was nowhere to be seen and enemy fighters were constantly harassing the German troop movements.

Keeping an eye in the sky for enemy planes.

Every quiet moment is used to get some rest.

Troops await new orders on an assembly point. Seems the war isn't over yet.

Another threat were the resistance groups. Once they saw the liberation was imminent, many groups took up arms.

After serving for many years on different fronts, the war of this Grenadier ends in Belgium.

Some didn't had the luck of being taken prisoner.
