Hey gang,

I came across this article whilst enjoying my weekend and I figured it might be something that would be interesting to some of you.

 

Days after Hitler’s suicide a group of American soldiers, French prisoners, and, yes, German soldiers defended an Austrian castle against an SS division—the only time Germans and Allies fought together in World War II.

 

Sounds rather unbelievable right? Well it turns out that it really did happen! Check out the article for more details:
