A larger group is assembled at a small square in front of buildings, guarded by members of the U.S. 222nd Anti-Tank Company of the 42nd Division. The German troop prisoners line up in formation and march, several abreast, along a street, led by a U.S.Army truck pulling a mobile weapon. Several American soldiers accompany the group.
