The invasion of Normandy: Wounded German soldiers under the supervision of an American soldier.

These five Nazis were injured and remained without food and water for three days, when they hid in a house in Normandy and waited for the opportunity to surrender to the US Army. Acting in accordance with the information received from the French couple, the American soldiers went into the barn and were attacked by a sniper, who apparently was trying to save his comrades from captivity. After the shootout, the sniper retreated and the wounded Wehrmacht soldiers were captured.
