May they rest in peace. We should be glad living nowadays, sharing our hobby mostly polite and decent with each other though our grandfathers shot at each other. Most were decent men killing and getting killed in theit youth. Remembering them makes them not fade away in the mist of history in times when yesterday has no relevance any more.

Some technical inaccuracies like the use of the Mg-42, but some good footage. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=k0dlbk-9Slc
