I did a search on Severloh and stumbled over this segment on youtube.
Its about Heinrich Severloh who was a young MG gunner in Normandy during D-Day.
He stuck to his MG and K98 all day long and by his own account, he shot thousands of soldiers. I will not be the judge of how many he hit considering the total KIA on Omaha Beach, suffice it to say that it made an impression on him.
Anyway, the segment tells of his life and that of a GI.
Their lives converge on D-Day, when the American Silva lands at Omaha Beach, where Severloh is a MG gunner.
Not much in the way of pictures but that is not the imperative part either.
Its the tale, the raw emotions and the meet of the two vets.
Not really something to skip through, so microwave the popcorns and settle for the 53 minutes of the segment....., if you are into that sort of thing.
Sorry, its in German.
