Volksturm men armed with panzerfausts in Berlin, March 10, 1945. These older gentlemen faced almost certain death against veteran, professional Red Army soldiers and their powerful arsenal of tanks, planes and artillery. Truly a sad scene. So many lives thrown away while that madman Adolf Hitler sat in his Führerbunker, moving imaginary units around a map. The coward Hitler could not even bring himself to stand up against his nemesis. Instead he took the easy way out while Germany burned around him.
