The lizard people: members of the I Battalion, 2nd Regiment, SS Division "Prinz Eugen", practise crawling into narrow mountain cracks (on the left: SS-Sturmbannführer Richard Kaaserer, battalion commander). The soldiers of this division, who were mostly plain farmers, went through unusually long and difficult training before they were ready for the extremely demanding guerrilla war, in which danger threatens from all sides. The motto that the men followed during their almost nine-month long training was "better to sweat than bleed".

Ljudi-gušteri: pripadnici I bataljona 2. puka SS-divizije "Princ Eugen" vežbaju zavlačenje u uske planinske pukotine (levo: SS-šturmbanfirer Rihard Kazerer, komandant bataljona). Vojnici ove divizije, većinom ravničarski seljaci, prošli su neuobičajeno dugu i tešku obuku pre nego što su osposobljeni za izuzetno zahtevni gerilski rat, u kojem opasnost vreba sa svih strana. Moto kojeg se vojska držala tokom svoje skoro devetomesečne obuke bio je "bolje znojenje nego krvarenje".
