That was a very interesting conversation I bet ........was a once in a lifetime chance, I would have more question than I can count for him.
Most definately! Awesome to speak to someone who actually fought throught that and survived. The closest I've gotten is playing Call of Duty!
Yeah I'm fascinated by the Eastern Front too. I doubt we'll see a war ever fought quite like that again. Most people in the west have no conception of what a titanic struggle it truly was. The Russians are the only people it's claimed that know the meaning of 'total war' and I can believe it.
