A concentrated portrait ( the futility of war, those that have to ) questions in the image. Excellent Ann, a good day I'm sure. Just a side to your image, the location that is on the sign behind was in Normandy and a famous tank battle took place. Tiger tank v's British armour.

Detailed and captures the atmosphere well, Ann. I nearly went on Thursday but decided I didn't want 2hrs each way on public transport in sweltering heat!! Images like this make me regret that decision a bit.

The picture is so good. Smile
The Germans did use Russian guns, which he is holding.
The English did meet the German tanks, as Ron said, but they had nothing that could penetrate the Germans armour.
They got their butts kicked!! Sad

With his facial expression, this looks so authentic.
You've captured the essence of war an dmaybe the futility.
