Hi, welcome to my website! It's about history, and about people. About war and about tanks. I like tanks, Wouldn't want to fight in one - or at all. But they're massive lumps of technology, a bit like steam trains. I like those too. And the people are, well, just people. Let's not get carried away with the Übermensche.

So what is this all about?

Allright then, the war. Yes, the Nazis were a bunch of genocidal maniacs. We all know that. It’s been written about quite a lot. However, a lot of Germans at the time were just going along with the flow, so to speak. Maybe torrent would be a better word… Anyway, there were nuances. There were ‘good’ Germans. There were ‘bad’ Germans. There were uninterested, weird, homesick, brilliant and/or stupid Germans. And I feel I ought to tell their stories.

What I’m after, then, is the stories about normal people. The ones who were fighting for their country, which had -in all fairness- been rather mistreated post-WW1. I want to know about the ones that were scared to death, hiding in a ditch. The ones that took the initiative and won the day. The ones that knew they were capable soldiers fighting for a terrible cause, but had no other options. I might just intentionally, out of spite, completely ignore Michael Wittmann. He’s had enough attention already.

And I sincerely believe he and Bobby Woll were gay lovers.


Anything interesting to say?
