A G-41 at the front? Must be important to have a nice fur lined coat and semi-auto rifle :D

American soldiers inspect a knocked out German Marder III, Ausf. H tank destroyer from the 71st Infantry Division "Kleeblatt" in Esperia, Frosinone, Italy, 19 May 1944. I think this was part of a series of color photos published by TIME magazine at some point.

Would love to know what the “13” represents on the American helmets

It definitely looks like one, at least the upper part :X

I wonder what happened to the Marder III. It looks like it got detracked while reversing? The rest of the vehicle looks to be in pristine condition still.

Yea nysä I’d like to know more about what that is :-\ I’m hoping it’s a vent with someone’s fuzzy hat hanging off, but I don’t think so.

I think that marder was hit with arty on the right side (left on the photo) that side of the tank might look worse.

Sorry, no info precise info about the KV. The war is full of freak accidents, perhaps the commander got the hatch? Anyway, the soldiers and the vehicles on the background are German.

About the Marder: "On January 1944, the 71. Inf.Div. had quickly been transferred to the area south of Rome, and beginning in February 1944 it was in action in the Monte Majo mountain area during the battle for Cassino. After suffering severe losses and barely escaping encirclement by Allied troops several times during the 3rd battle for Cassino (German counting) the division was practicaly destroyed until May 20, 1944. Pz.Jg.Abt. 171 had lost almost half of its Marders and assault guns."
