Snapshots taken during combat situations are the Holy Grail for WWII photo collectors. In this case, a soldier in the 395th Infantry Regiment of the 99th Division snapped a photo during a firefight with Germans near a dike in Neustadt, Germany. A great action shot! To make this shot even more amazing, I found an original film shot shortly after the same episode in the exact same postion. This time the dike has been fortified with sandbags and pontoon boats. Look for the 0:39 second mark.
