    Hitler crushed entire Europe by September 1941. His troops were rushing toward Moscow seemingly invincible. At this, very moment of the peek of Hitler's power his troops were defeated in rebellious Serbia. Just look what united Serbs could do! This kind of site was impossible to see anywhere else in the world: long column of defeated, captured German Nazi soldiers. The prisoners are escorted through Uzice, central Serbia, by both Partisan and Chetnik troops.
    This photograph is from the same Time-Life book



    Not my commentary.It is from picture caption.

    Will there be a distinction made between those in the act of Surrender and those who have been captured in combat?

    A couple of the Vietnam era shots could quite easily be a routine stop and search with no act of surrender involved.

    Also picture of mass prisoners in rail cars are not an indication of the act of surrender per se, as they possibly were captured in combat.
