proper mentality that wins the battle, not sheer superiority. :)

 

you mean "proper insanity"? ;)

 

 

"Bill Millin, the Scottish piper who played on the beaches of Normandy as memorialized in The Longest Day, later met German prisoners who’d seen him on the beaches. They told him they didn’t fire because they thought he was obviously crazy."

 

I like this. shows that the german soldiers in WWII where not all bad.

If you wanna know about a really good german, then check in to Charlie Brown and Franz Stigler incident. Where Franz Stigler ace pilot was one victory away from knight cross, but instead of shooting Charlie's completely crippled bomber, he escorted them out of german territory safely. Way later after the war Charlie Brown and Franz Stigler became friends.

I've heard of Jack Churchill before but I'm a bit skeptical, it all sounds too good to be true.  I agree with Mike Loades in that article, killing a guy with a longbow was just for his own purposes - still its pretty badass.
