Excerpts: Chapter 18 – The End of the War
We received word on May 1 that Adolf Hitler was dead. He had committed suicide. All kinds of thoughts went through my mind, including what I would have done had I gotten my hands on him. I'm sure the other men had similar thoughts. Fighting Krauts for months in the cold, living in rain-filled holes, and seeing so much death—well, it kind of got to me after a while. If Hitler was dead and the Krauts were retreating, then the surrender couldn't be far off, could it?
