In this amazing true story: http://www.thedailybeast.com/articl...en-americans-and-germans-fought-together.html Cliff Notes: This battle happened about 5 days after Hitler killed himself. The Nazi's had a bunch of kidnapped dignitaries holed up in a medieval castle in Austria, the castle was protected by some standard German army soldiers. The American army shows up to liberate the castle and the German soldiers surrender without a fight (because they know Hitler is dead and the war is essentially over). The German SS shows up in force to kill everyone at the castle. The Americans are forced to arm the prisoners and accept any help they can get. German regular army soldiers say "fuck the SS" and they join with the Americans.
