Operation "Falcon Hunt". An extremely rare German aerial photograph of a Partisan column (belonging to the XXIX Herzegovinian Division), on the move in the snow-covered hills of Herzegovina – taken from a Stork (reconnaissance aircraft) of the SS Division "Prinz Eugen", before the start of the operation. According to the original photo caption, in the aircraft, besides the pilot and the photographer, there was the (division) commander himself, who, having spotted the Partisan column, exclaimed joyfully: "There are the scoundrels!" The SS Stork then went a bit higher, just in case, since it often happened that the Partisans fired at it.

Original caption: "The commander reconnoiters. 'There are the scoundrels!' – there is a joy in commander's voice. In a long row, visible only as a black line, the bandits move through the snow-covered terrain. 'We went a bit higher', reports the SS war correspondent who accompanied the commander in his flight, 'because the bandits have often fired at the Stork.'"

Operacija "Sokolov lov". Izuzetno retka nemačka aerofotografija jedne partizanske kolone (iz sastava XXIX hercegovačke divizije), u pokretu u zavejanim brdima Hercegovine – snimljena iz rode (izviđačkog aviona) SS-divizije "Princ Eugen", pred početak operacije. Prema originalnom natpisu fotografije, u avionu se, pored pilota i fotografa, nalazio lično komandant (divizije), koji je, spazivši partizansku kolonu, radosno uzviknuo: "Eno nitkova!" Potom se esesovska roda za svaki slučaj još malo podigla, jer se često dešavalo da partizani na nju zapucaju.

Originalni natpis: "Komandant izviđa. 'Eno nitkova!' – čuje se radost u komandantovom glasu. U dugom nizu, vidljivi samo kao jedna crna linija, kreću se banditi po zavejanom terenu. 'Malo smo se još podigli', izveštava ratni dopisnik SS-a koji je pratio komandanta u njegovom letu, 'jer su banditi često znali da pucaju na rodu.'"
