American troops stand guard behind German soldiers captured near the town of Le Gast during the Normandy invasion

American troops stand guard behind young German Heer (Army) soldiers captured near the town of Le Gast during the Normandy invasion, June 1944. Although the branch color seems to not match up (happened often), it’s a high chance that these guys are from Panzergrenadier-Regiment 156, part of the 116. Panzer Division “Der Windhund”.
