    Thought shall be the harder , heart the keener,
    Courage the greater as our strength faileth.
    Here lies our leader ,in the dust of his greatness.
    Who leaves him now , be damned forever.
    We who are old now shall not leave this Battle,
    But lie at his feet , in the dust with our leader

    On third day it would be remiss not to post some photos of some of the veterans of the Battle that i have been fortunate to know , Helmut Meitzel , Infanterie Regt 15 , 29 (Mot ) Infanterie Divison , wounded in action and flown out of Stalingrad.
