A German Luftwaffe paratrooper commando assault team is shown
with a virtual armoury of weapons, including MP-40 submachine
guns, potato masher grenades, and a very rare shot of the business
end of a German flamethrower (center). The paratroopers are
wearing woodland pattern, mottled camouflage jump tunics. These particular troops faught Italian partisans in the mountains of Italy.
