Frozen

Next to the N4 leading to Bastogne and about across the N4 a bit north from Sainlez, a couple of photos were taken of Sherman tanks of the 35th Tank Battalion (4th Armored Division).

Also shown is a Flak gun of (most likely) Fallschirm-Flak-Abteilung 5 of the German 5. Fallschirmjäger Division. Some of the crew had been killed while operating this gun and their bodies remained frozen at their position.

* Flak is an abbreviation for Flug(zeug)abwehrkanone/Fliegerabwehrkanone, and is the German name for Anti-Aircraft Artillery.
