Police Battalion Operation

A small village in Easter Poland.

A light dusting of snow on the ground.

A police battalion surrounds the village.

They move quickly and quietly.

Until all is ready

German Police Battalion

Anyone in an occupied nation who was willing to serve the Germans, and do anything, may have found their way into a Police Battalion.

Not the same as front line soldiers.

These men enforced German racial laws...

and hunted for guerillas...

and fought against regular enemy troops only when cornered.

Unsavory business.

Polish Winter

Fighting in lines when out with the Napoleonic Wars.

Yet, it's the best way to get firepower on the enemy.

Just now the first line is laying down.

Troops hide behind trees when they can.

A white sheet of plastic, and a few dollar store Christmas trees and it's winter!

Romainian Troops in the Snow

The snow is not too deep.

But if you get wounded and fall into it.

You could freeze.

Or new snow could fall and cover you up.

And you would never get rescued.
