    Thanks Mr_Flibble !

    All the pictures supposedly taken from the film found on a luxembourgish hillside are official Signal Corps photographs and can be found in Andy Rawson's “Images of War - Battle of the Bulge - Rare photographs from wartime archives” on pages 11, 48, 55, 57 and 92!
    The whole article was a fraud written to pull at people's heartstrings.

    It's amazing that the camera and more so the film survived just buried in debris and exposed to the elements for all that time.
    Kudos to the people who found it and took the time and effort to conserve what was there. The images could have so easily been lost for the rest of time.

    where are you quoting from Mr. Flibble ?

    If the story is indeed fraudulent, or at the very least if the photographs are misattributed, it seems a shame to perpetuate it here.

    If it is a fraud, prove it! What are you basing your statement on? What you had for breakfast?

    Ok, folks, please keep it to the photographic issue at hand and take the debate about the war to a WWII forum, of which I am sure there are many.

    All images are definitely from the Signal Corps archives, not from a recently recovered camera, some appeared in print in a book concerning the 80th Infantry Division back in 2008. (see my complete quote).

    Same thing happened with an article by the ARC a few weeks ago. Where they showed a photo of 'ARC ladies jumping off a landing craft in Normandy 1944".....except that it was Southern France in January 1945...

    I also see that the site that the petapixel article linked to has removed the pages about the find (or "find")
