“The Ukrainian man told us that the Russians came in twice and took his farm, all of his grain that he grew, and that they did this to everyone. He was a boy the first time, in the 1920s, a teenager I think. His father argued with the official, and they shot him on the spot. Then they came again just a few years before the war, and again they took everything.”
Colin D. Heaton, The German Aces Speak II: World War II Through the Eyes of Four More of the Luftwaffe's Most Important Commanders

“We knew that millions of Ukrainians died from starvation. Stalin wanted their food for the Russians, and the rest he sold for money internationally. Stalin needed currency. The Ukrainians and many others were arrested and sent to mines and labor camps. We Germans have a bad reputation because of the Jews, and that is deserved, I will admit. However, we never hear anything about the Soviets, their crimes, killing their own people, the gulags and mass murder, what they did to other Europeans during and after the war.”
Colin D. Heaton, The German Aces Speak II: World War II Through the Eyes of Four More of the Luftwaffe's Most Important Commanders

“The Russians had a strange attack method on the ground. I saw this myself, when we were flying over Stalingrad. In that area, they would attack in waves of five or six ranks. The first wave had weapons, and the following soldiers had nothing. They did not even have tank support—nothing. They had to pick up the weapons from the dead and wounded and keep going forward. Then the next wave did the same thing, and the next. It was incredible to us. Throwing away lives that way.”
Colin D. Heaton, The German Aces Speak II: World War II Through the Eyes of Four More of the Luftwaffe's Most Important Commanders

Colin Heaton No problem. One of my former students wrote a couple of WW II novels.
