I watched this video: and it talked about one final battle where the Americans and German regular soldiers fought against the SS together. This sounds like a stupid question (which it probably is) but I'm trying to picture something. If you are the SS, and you see American soldiers and German soldiers fighting on the same side, would that not make it incredibly obvious that the war is already over? By that point in time, it should have been common knowledge that the war was over regardless. If the German soldiers and American soldiers were wearing their respective uniforms (I'm guessing they were) then how could the SS not be able to tell just by looking at them what had happened? Literally, the only way the Germans and Americans could be fighting on the same side in the first place is if the war is over, so I don't get it.
