Surrendering to a GI with a BAR beats the sh!t out of surrendering to a Soviet with a PPsh41!!
I guess - unless/until he got turned over to the Ivans anyway and starved to death, worked to death, or lost a good decade of his life in one of their labor camps, or starved and suffered from exposure in one of Ike's internment camps.

Cool rifle, though.

Yep , it was well known that if ya had to surrender , surrender to the Yanks. They'd get better than they deserved. They didn't get shot , gassed or burned alive.

3 Germans walked into a BAR (sorry about that!) I've seen this pic before in a book. The G.I. holding the BAR is actually wearing an ammo belt for an M1 . the description said he may have been given the BAR to hold on this guy temporarily or rounding up more prisoners.
