Okay, I'll go the other way then and say Erwin Rommel.

If I miss it, this will be strike two. I'm allowing myself three swings at bat before I call myself out here unless somebody does that for me sooner

Something weird in the software of this forum. When I answered Rommel mine was the only answer but coming back later I see another ahead of me by two minutes. Oh well, new guy can use the money he he.

I'll get back to you on the latest question.

"Our rifles grew so hot with sun and shooting that they seared our hands; and we had to be grudging of our rounds, considering every shot, and spending great pains to make it sure. The rocks which we flung ourselves for aim were burning, so that they scorched our breasts and arms, from which later the skin drew off in ragged sheets. The present smart made us thurst. Yet even water eas rare with us; we could not afford men to fetch enough from Batra, and if all could not drink, it was better that none should."
