Thanks a lot for the read. Very dramatic stories. War surely is nasty and it would be great if it happened only in video games.

The driver's instinctive reactions to coming under fire: would that I could be as good after 3000 battles as he learned to be after just a few.

Love it! thanks a lot! I adore stories like this...

My great-grandfather fought as a desert rat in north africa, all the way into italy to see Mussolini hung (by his feet!)
He's gone now, but I did get his old war journal passed down which has records like this in it - I love learning about this
without all the dramatics and glorification of the cinema/documentaries... just actual accounts from the people that were
there.

I love to read these stories, especially when this happend about 60km from where I live (Nijmegen). There was so much going on during and after Market Garden in the south of the Netherlands. In mainstream documentaries about WWII, this is a really underlit part of the war in my opinion. Can't wait for part 3.

It's very important that these little bits of history don't get lost...

something nice to read in work :)

edit: and I have to say its stunning to imagine the actual combat experience. Just imagine you could have been born 70 years ago, you could have been sitting in that tank and some enemy troop could end your life just like that with panzershreck. I know its "what if...", but still...or the other situation, when some german PaK shot two Fireflies and hit also the Little Audrey. I would probably piss myslef sitting in the open just behind Sherman wreck.
