Panzer - Another collection of burned out armour awaiting the scrapheap, this time in the summer of 1945 in Czechoslovakia.
The small European country was flooded with retreating German forces during the last weeks of the war, squeezed in between the Western Allies advancing from the West and the Red Army coming from the East. Fighting desperately to avoid capture by the Russians some German units surrendered as late as May 12'th 1945 (the official surrender was May 8'th in the West and May 9'th in the East).

Babe - Well, we all like to watch a good fight.
