Burnt out German vehicles north of Rome

18 June 1944: A German mechanized column completely destroyed by the ubiquitous Allied fighter-bombers near one of the great northward Consular Ways from Rome during the retreat from the Italian Capital (liberated by the Allies on 4 June 1944) as discovered by the advancing British troops. The completely burned truck in foreground is a former Italian Army vehicle, one of many seized by the German forces on September 1943 after the Armistice of the Italy with the Allies, likely a Fiat 626 truck. In background a French-built Renault AHR truck.
