Wonderful pictures from our very "secretive allies"

The Berlin pictures are amazing

Primitive first aid provision by the western standards of the period. Note also the presence of US lend-lease vehicles, particularly Studebaker 6x6s, without which the Soviet advance units would have relied upon horse-drawn supply trains...as indeed did the Nazis.

Few helmets and lots of head wounds in the photos.

Dogs and horses don't require gasoline-diesel. I would guess the vast majority of Russians and the majority of Germans did not own a car at that
time or knew how to drive one.
