In an era that history started at 23/8/1944 ,when all low lifes became generals profesors ,hight ranking oficials and ...yes writers and editors I can be sceptical about this kind of invented heros.

QUOTE (C-2 @ May 29, 2011 12:52 am)
My grandfather was at the Don ...
1000 times more hero then all those guys together.
And btw.He never pretended of being a hero.
And he wasn't burried in the middle of the centrat alley of the military cemetry in Bucharest.

The more somebody fought in a war, the more he suffered, the less the need to talk later about that. Usually the real veterans don't brag about what they did - they keep their memories for themselves.

Btw,

1) Do you have any stories from your grandfather? It would be nice to share some impressions & memories
2) Could a moderator open a separate topic for our current discussion?

Re: Marin Nastase, 2-nd motorized artillery: I've just found today a reprimand from 09.1940, because he didn't salute, being busy entertaining a female companion. This is fresh from the military archives. ;)
