Kurt Knispel. Era comandante de tanques alemán de las SS en la SGM. Destruyó 195 tanques enemigos en todos los frentes de guerra, uno un T-34 desde 3000 metros. Luchó en todos los frentes, Fue un experto con el carro de combate Tiger. Luchó en muchas de las principales batallas y sin esperanza,  de cambiar el rumbo de la guerra hasta el último minuto: por ejemplo en Caen y Cherkasy. Nunca ascendió de sargento porque despreciaba la jerarquía militar.
