This is a cool video. How do we know it the guy's from the 14th???? I see alot of carbines. No M-1's in this video.. This goes to show that not everyone had M-1's after the war progressed. It appears that the NCO's were issued Carbines or picked them up where ever they could. I also liked how the guy's with the bazooka cover the rear area of the 75mm. Also there was a guy with a carbine covering the flank. Nice footage.

The video is of a training exercise conducted by a squad of the anit-tank platoon, Company A, 19th Armored Infantry Battalion, 14th Armored Division in February or early March 1945. The location is a small village just south of the Moder River, a few kilometers west of Hagenau, France.

The gun is a 57mm anti-tank gun, not a 75mm.
