    The Firing Squad

    German commando Gunther Billing in US Army fatigues as US Army MPs tie his hands behind him before facing the firing squad. Billing was one of a group of German commandos who infiltrated US lines during the Battle of the Ardennes (Dec 1944) wearing US Army uniforms. Speaking fluent American English, the commandos proceeded to spread havoc and confusion in the rear. After their capture, most of them faced the firing squad.
