So exhausted were the men of the 6th Parachute Regiment after fighting the Americans in Operation Cobra one unit commander, von der Heydte, brought his Parachute Regiment into a concealed bivouac and there, hidden from Americans and Germans alike, permitted his men to sleep for twenty-four hours before reporting his location to higher headquarters. In one instance 100 German paratroopers walked into a command post of an armored division and surrendered

Hans Speidel was a German general during WW2 & the first German senior NATO commander. He was a nationalist, professional soldier, & agreed with some aspects of Nazi policies,but was appalled by Germany's racial policies. He took part in the plot to kill Hitler in 1944 & barely escaped death at the hands of the Gestapo. After the war, he returned to the army & was appointed C-in-C of Allied ground forces, Central Europe in April 1957, a command he held until retirement in September 1963.

Marie-Claude Vaillant-Couturier (1912-1996) was a member of the resistance until 1942 when she was arrested, and sent first to Birkenau on 24 Jan 1943, then Ravensbruck. Marie-Claude remained at Ravensbruck even after the war, caring for the sick until the last POW left. Her powerful testimony at Nuremberg was devastating to the defence. Afterward, she slowly walked past the Nazis, looked each one in the eye, effectively unnerving them. Most bowed their heads; others, unrepentant, did not.
