Ok, well known fact: The US Rations were awful.

Lesser known fact: The German Rations were much better. Much better.


Bill Mauldin wrote in his book Up Front (1945):

     "When our planes weren't shooting up kraut supply lines, the German army was pretty well fed. Maybe they didn't know much about vitamins, but their stuff was filling. It was always a great day when our patrols found caches of Jerry food.

        The Sausage is good, and they have a marmalade that comes packed in a big wooden box and isn't bad at all. Of course, most of this stuff came from France. Now that they can't get it from the French the German diet will probably get slimmer.

        But the Germans have a pretty good chow system, according to the prisoners I've talked to. Our guys seldom get a square meal with meat and gravy until they are back in the rest area where the food can be brought up easily. The Germans send all their
best stuff to the front. One prisoner told me that he had transferred from a cushy job in the rear echelon to the infantry so he could get something to eat.

        After having eaten normal German front-line rations, prisoners scream when we throw C rations at them. According to the rules, they are supposed to get the same food as their captors, and they refuse to believe that we also eat C rations.

        A captured doggie who escaped and returned to our lines at Anzio reported that he had received three meals a day from the Germans, besides a daily chocolate bar, ten cigarettes, and a bottle of beer. That was a hell of a lot better food than we were getting, and if the krauts fed him like that and deliberately let him escape, it was a smart trick.




So all this photo of mine is the boys expressing their desire to have better food than the US Food.
