Normandy. I once shared a hospital room with an old guy who told me: - I did not even get my feet wet at Normandy - How come? (I said) - I belonged to a corps of engineers and got there a few days later in big trucks. However, during the battle of the bulge he was given a bazooka and something like 5 minutes training and he was told to shoot basically at anything that moved. In that same room I met a tail gunner who was shot down and confined to a camp of POWs. He said he was treated well.
