Default Re: Fighters who saw military action

Schmeling got injured in action serving as a para in WWII. I remember watching a documentary where it was suggested that Max was kind of railroaded into service as a punishment even though he was over the draft age for that particular unit. It also covered the incident where he picked up his Jewish neighbours kids in his car and sheltered them. What a legend.
