Children from the Hitler Youth serving in the German Army at the last stages of WW2.  As Germany suffered more casualties, more teenagers volunteered & were accepted, initially as reserve troops but then as regulars. The German ethic of the boy soldier not only encouraged such service but towards the end of the war, the Germans even drafted boys as young as 12 into military service. They saw extensive action & were among the fiercest & effective German defenders in the Battle of Berlin
