Фотографии Роджера Гамильтона ( Rodger Hamilton ) , служившего фотографом в Army Pictorial Service во время Второй Мировой . Здесь - 1944-й , Нормандия , в основном. Подписи к фотографиям отсюда , на английском.
02 German soldier holding small Nazi flag surrendering to three soldiers. Signal Corps logo. This has a staged feel to it; the German soldier is clearly holding the Nazi flag for the camera. Note the gun barrel at the bottom left of the frame. There is some sort of exchange of memorabilia going on, but what the G.I. is searching for is a mystery.
03 Airplanes, paratroopers over England (pre-invasion).
03А Англия. Перед высадкой во Франции. Продолжение 3-й фотографии.

06 German soldiers surrendering to U.S. soldiers.
07 Two soldiers drinking with four citizens in St. Lo; rubble in background. U.S. Army Pictorial Services. The French, who went into their cellars as the German Wehrmacht left, remained there throughout the bombardment and shelling, came out to find the Americans in possession of the town.
08 Soldiers, tank. One Signal Corps soldier is working on pole with dangling wires. ( Тока это не танк , а САУ Прист (105mm Howitzer Motor Carriage M7 , Priest ) , походу...
09 Two soldiers using hand-held radar device ( в комментах ребята пишут , что это сигнальный фонарь , или посадочный огонь . Согласен ) next to trailer and P-38. The device is most likely an air traffic control light. In the background on the right is one of the first airstrips put in operation in France. The black & white stripes are a signal corps marking.
10 Four soldiers taking cover on road next to building. У солдата справа - БАР.
11 Soldiers fording a stream somewhere in France.

27 Battle action on beach.

30 3 flags (U.S., British, and unknown ( какой анноун ? флаг французского сопротивления , с лотарингским крестом , чо ) on pole next to stone wall. Look closer at the flags. These are hand-made, non-official Stars and Strips and a Union Jack. These were probably made by a French or Italian citizen ( ага , итальянцы ) welcoming the liberators.
31 Raising American Flag in French village.
32 During a celebration of the liberation of a French town, a French WWI vet appears with medals and armband that reads’ “Defense” at ceremony next to man in black coat and hat holding flag. The medals look Greek. It’s possible he earned them at the battle of Salonika.
33 Wide view of village, most of it destroyed. Soldiers in foreground.
34 Destroyed tank, with soldier approaching cautiously. ( Опять хрянь. Горит - SdKfz 251 , у зольдатика - М1 Гаранд с grenade launcher M7 , заряжена grenade type M9A1 HEAT ).
