Germans surrender near Jemappes, Belgium, 9/2/44

Zoom in

  Above are two of the approximately 50 Germans soldiers who ran into a roadblock set up by the 83rd Reconnaissance Bn and operating under Task Force Lovelady between Frameries and Jemappes. This was the day before the Battle of Mons. So completely surprised were Germans that they surrendered without shots being fired.
