Object description

image: a view down a tree lined road in Germany, with a column of defeated and injured German soldiers walking towards the viewer. Some of the men drag wheeled carts of belongings with them and there is an air of dejection about the scene. Two German soldiers rest in the ditch to the right of the road.
