Arnhem’s German Military Commander, General Friedrich Kussin had the fatal misfortune to run into some of the advancing British paratroopers on the outskirts of the Dutch town. A fusillade of rifle and machine gunfire raked the General’s car and killed both his driver and himself! Our CITROEN TRACTION staff car was one of the thousands that the Wehrmacht took over after the Fall of France in 1940. As the General’s ill-fated driver sits slumped dead behind the wheel the senior officer himself has been dragged lifeless out of the car and left `half in-half out’ of the vehicle. Looks great with some Paras standing around!
