This particular one is Augsburg in 1945 - American troops in the city center. The US black troops at the beginning is interesting. You don't see many in WWII films.
Also interesting...I had no idea lederhosen was worn so commonly in WWII. I lived in Germany for 6 years well after WWII and never really seen them worn.

Brian,

Lederhosen are really a Bavarian thing rather than a German.
