If you are a WWII vet and you met a German WWII vet how would you feel about him? Would you respect him and treat him like a human being or harbor a grudge or something else? If you're not a WWII vet then try to imagine how you would feel. It would also be great if this has actually happened to you and you could talk about what went on. I read some where though I'm not sure to what extent it is true that in WWI the infantry felt more in common with the enemy infantry than their commanding officers but I don't think this was true in WWII because trench life has a way of making you resent your officer (I imagine) since they're basically just sending you to your death if you're given the order to cross no man's land.
