  1. I read something that was as grim as it gets from Anthony Beevor’s book ‘Stalingrad’ It concerns the time when the last of the Germans who made it out were fleeing by aircraft. On their way to the makeshift runway, a car full of officers came across a soldier laid by the roadside with no arms or legs. He screamed and pleaded for them to stop and help him. For reasons that I can’t recall, they didn’t put him inside the car with them but threw him on the bonnet. Unfortunately for the wretched soldier, a liitle further on, the car hit a large hole in the road, causing him to be thrown back off the vehicle. They decided they didn’t have anymore time to lose and left him there to die in unspeakable misery.
