Grossdeutschland Kaserne, Heidelberg, 1945
(Source: Author's Private Collections)
This photo was taken shortly after Headquarters Seventh US Army (SUSA) moved from Augsburg to Heidelberg in July 1945. With this move SUSA assumed its mission as one of two American armies responsible for the occupation of the US Zone of Occupation in Germany. (This is the oldest photo I have found so far of Campbell Barracks under US management. After more than 65 years of occupation by US forces, the post will soon be returned to the German government.)
