Iconic photo shows Private First Class and Sherman tank driver Julian H. Patrick (born in Magoffin County, Kentucky, on April 29, 1921), member of the 3rd US Armored Div, killed in action inside his tank on March 6, 1945 during the very well-known Tank Duel at the Cathedral of Cologne. He was the youngest of 4 brothers serving in WWII. The three other brothers survived the war. Patrick was first buried in Belgium, his body returned in 1947 to the USA and interred in the family cemetery in Salyersville, Kentucky.
Colorized photo of an American soldier pretends to sleep in Hermann Goering's bed at Veldenstein Castle in Neuhaus, Germany - 1945
Hanging above the bed is "The Rape of the Daughters of Leucippus" (reproduction), a 1618 painting by Peter Paul Rubens and Jan Wildens, now displayed in the Alte Pinakothek in Munich.
Veldenstein Castle is a large medieval fortification situated above the town of Neuhaus an der Pegnitz, Bavaria, Germany.
