    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

    He'd have been good for a beach landing.His head could have well been above water. But then again, did the Germans do such amphibious landings as those by Americans on Europe and N.Africa?
