“The brutal aggression of these would-be soldiers and heroes, wrenched from hopelessness and unemployment and easily turned into unthinking zealots, chilled”
Anton Gill, Into Darkness

“I have never felt that the work is a burden; it is a duty — more than a duty, something I have to do.”
Anton Gill, The Journey Back From Hell: Conversations with Concentration Camp Survivors

“When the British started shooting, he simply bellowed the order ‘Cease fire’ in his impeccable English, which they did, until Stauffenberg’s men were safely out of the way. Then Stauffenberg ordered the British to start shooting again, which they did, this time at each other, because they had had the Germans caught in a crossfire.”
Anton Gill, An Honourable Defeat: A History of German Resistance to Hitler, 1933-1945
