The Command Post of SS-Panzergrenadier-Regiment 25 (12. SS-Panzer-Division "Hitlerjugend") at the Ardenne Abbey/Normandy, late June 1944. On the left regimental commander SS-Obersturmbannführer Heinz Milius, in the center (with binoculars) Hubert Meyer, the HJ-Division's first staff officer. The soldier behind Meyer is Herbert Reinecker (1914-2007) who became a famous crime writer for TV series in Germany after the war. He never made a secret about his Waffen-SS membership though.
