thank You for Your interest !
Unfortunately , I haven't any author's copies
of my "Artilleryman" book left .
Perhaps You can find it in a public library ?
Do You know R.A. Forczyk's review of the book at amazon.com ?
To answer Your questions :
1.) I was captured in downtown Stalingrad
Jan. 31th , not knowing that field
marshal Paulus had surrendered
some hours before .
2.) Some German soldiers were
wearing boots , others laced
up boots .
3.) I had a winter camouflage
uniform and was awarded with the Iron
Cross 1st and 2nd class .
Best wishes for You and all board readers !
P.S. : May be I will appear in Canadian tv
later this year : I was interviewed for
warstory.ca some months ago .
