    Weapons soon froze and became useless as did many men . I heard a story some
    years ago how a sympathetic Russian farmer informed Oficers of the 2nd SS Panzer Div. of the usefulness of Sunflower Oil in the lubrication of weapons thus this Unit held firm when many others were decimated by the Soviet onslaught . Was this true ? Winter on the Eastern Front

    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
