General Friedrich Kussin (1895-1944), the German commander of Arnhem in the Netherlands, was ambushed and killed by British paratroopers at a crossroads on September 17, 1944 during Operation Market Garden. During the attack by multiple machine gun fire, his driver and translator were both killed as well. This image has led to speculation that the general was also scalped, but in fact he was hit by bullets and glass in such a way that part of his skin and hair separated from the skull.
