What were the Russian tanks used in Cross of Iron, werent they T-60s
If my memory serves me well, they were T-34's.
T-34/85s to be precise.
What is/was Cross of Iron? :-?
Shame on you, ignorant Engländer!
I am also unfamilair with that movie although I probably did see it I jsut dont like to remember movie titels.
I suppose it would be worth it to remember the titles of movies you've seen when you're planning to discuss them with other enthusiasts...
Cross of Iron is about a German unit on the Eastern front that is being gradually destroyed by incessant Russian attacks. It gets encircled and has to fight its way back to the German lines.
Sounds very Sven Hassel... :wink:
But its Willi Heinrich... :wink:
Sounds like a great movie. I assume I ahve never seen it, sounds fun though.
Ahhh, yes. I have quite a collection of those...
As already stated, it's willi Heinrich. Das Geduldige Fleisch is a great novel and in my opinion it ranks among the very best things written about WWII. a must read!
