Battle of Kowel April 1944

Readers may appreciate this short film from "Die Deutsche Wochenshau"

The city of Kowel was encircled by the Red Army in March 1944.  In mid-April a combined Army and Waffen SS counter-attack, led by Oberstleutnant Hoffmann, broke the Soviet perimeter and enabled the garrison to withdraw complete with most of their equipment.

In this newsreel there are lot of interesting vehicle and infantry shots that display well the weathered and worn "look" for which I am aiming.
