Ronald Playforth covertly captured one of the most historic events of the 20th century after sneaking into a clump of trees overlooking the scene of the surrender.
With his camera, he snapped Field Marshall Bernard Montgomery greeting the highest ranking officers of the remains of Hitler’s Third Reich outside his HQ tent.
Although defeated and just days after the Hitler’s suicide, the never seen before photos show the German officers looking immaculate yet menacing in their long overcoats and jackboots.
