Our dramatic picture shows the German storm-troopers wreaking havoc and destruction as they swept across Europe at the beginning of the war. Code-named Operation Barbarossa, the military plan was to make swift progress in capturing territory and enemy prisoners. During the first 18 days of the campaign in the East, German forces had covered 400 miles and had taken 150,000 captives.
