An Fw 190A-7 of l./JG 11 is refuelled and rearmed at Rotenburg in March 1944. The armorers working below the wing are loading ammunition into the outer MG 151/20E wing-mounted cannon. The aircraft also carries a 300-liter drop tank. The A-? variant packed a far heavier punch than the original Fw 190A-1 and A-2 of 1941-42, thus making it an ideal “bomber killer”.

A German section takes cover in forested terrain, 1941, location unknown. The men carry heavy rucksacks, possibly loaded with equipment. The soldier nearest the camera is wearing mountain boots not normally available to line infantry. His sleeve badge looks very much like the one of 1. Gebirgs Division (1st Mountain) which saw intensive action in southern Russia and the Balkans.
