War and the Human Body

This horrific image (which, to me, always brings to mind similar images from Gulf War 1 along the Basra Road) is of two incinerated German panzer grenadiers who died when their Panther tank (belonging to the Panzer Lehr Division) was ambushed by American tank destroyers of 899th TD Battalion. This occurred at La Caplainerie near Le Desert, Normandy, on 11th July, 1944.
