I had a good chat with my uncle Joe this evening, and he told me a pretty grusome story about a particular battle in a forest in Germany in 1945.
He told me how they'd stopped the tank at a cross roads in the forest to read the map and take a leak! Joe said he was leaning on the side of the tank looking at his map, when he felt something drip on his bare arm. He looked up, and in the trees above him was HALF of a German sniper!! Joe said he almost freaked out and franticly rubbed the cold blood off his forearm!!
Anyway, I asked him which area of Germany this happened, but all he could recall was it was shortly after crossing the Rhine, and the forest was called the 'Ricewold Forest'. I've tried to find some information online, but I've come up with nothing. Do any of you guys know where Joe is referring to?
