A picture of U.S. troops on Thanksgiving in Europe, 1944, lifted from James Lileks:
Not one of those guys can take their eyes off those birds. Can you blame them? Heh, I wonder if any of them has had a shower since Normandy.
This is poignant picture - these guys still had to face some of the very toughest fighting of the war, in the Battle of the Bulge, Arnhem and crossing the Rhine. I wonder how many of them made it.
