    A skilled and talented tanker, for sure, and "war is war", but I have to wonder to myself just how many lives was this man responsible for ending...

    He was the best at what he did-no doubt there. His death is still controversial even today. Was it an air attack that destroyed him and his tank or other action? It is still being vigorously debated even now and will likely never be definitively solved for sure.

    Apparently it was a Canadian division of Sherman tanks that destroyed his tank, I don't know if this is true because their tanks were some yards away which Sherman's against a tiger at a far distant wont do much damage to a tiger.

    Recall reading of his exploits against allied tanks in one of those Stackpole books. Really wiped out those other tanks in lightning quick action.

    Anyone know if what is left of the tank is on display anywhere.
