Example text

When they'd bombed us they came back to decimate us again with strafing fire. It was a truly desperate situation. We weren't a cohesive unit any more; men were leaving their positions and running. I have a dream­ like memory of running like mad myself, shouting and waving my pistol, trying to stop the fleeing soldiers and bawling threats of a courtmartial for every man who left his post. Some of them did turn back, and for a moment I thought we were going to hold. But then the German fire redoubled, apparently from all sides now.

He'd been a teacher of literature. When he spoke he always made me feel awkward about my own grammarschool French. He came from a middle-class family near Belfort and was about my age—a flight-sergeant in the ground staff, captured somewhere in the department of Doubs and sent to Kaisersteinbruck POW camp near Vienna.

In the afternoon following the Turany raid, both partisan brigades in Kantor were turned out for a special parade: Slovaks on the left.
