Unmitigated praise for the beloved leader in the form of cheerful marching songs?...

hmm.... that has to come out of North Korea or The Third Reich, yes?...

or, maybe: The IBM Corporate Song Book

Panzer: Pzkpfw Tiger, Ausf B "Königstiger"
An American GI pose for a relaxed snapshot in occupied Berlin,  spring 1945.
He could be leaning against the same Tiger II pictured last week. The Soviet's gathered a number of AFV's captured in the Battle of Berlin and put them on display in a local park before the most salvageable vehicles were shipped to Russia for evaluation and research.
Note the Tiger I in the background with the early "dustbin" style cupola, clear evidence that many panzers fighting in Berlin were older vehicles gathered from armour schools and other second-line units.
