I am sorry if a simple request for more information upset you. Perhaps you should be a little less sensitive when someone simply asks you for confirmation of your INITIAL description of the event. The first version you gave bore no relation to the reality: "Case in point--take Remy SChrijnenes story for e fine example: Remy Schrijnen, knocked out 17 T-34s and IS Tanks in a 3 day period of time while being severely wounded, manning his AT gun and doing the job of 8 men and as the guns were destroyed--he simply moved to another one and alone, continued his actions. All the while when this is happening--he also manned a discarded MG and killed at least 100 Russian Infqantry trying to kill him." The book says 2 of the 3 guns were destroyed early in the engagement and despite you saying he was alone this was not the case except for the end of the action. Nowhere in the tale do I find any confirmation of 17 tanks destroyed(this 'confirmation' you will recall is the reason you brought it up) Frankly your statement I should "ask Remy about it" and that I am 'scared' to ask him is the most idiotic juvenile part of your post, Grow up and don't presume your word is enough for me and you should never be questioned on any of your knee jerk replies. Far from me: " obviously do not know squat about that particular subject you are trying to argue about." It is plain your blanket defence of German tank kill claims is based on nothing but an act of faith. I gave you a documented and proven example of the most famous 'ace' in the West being credited with more kills than he could possibly have hit as well as showing another example where it seems the tally for Fey can not be true for the Unit he mentions. I realise I am the new boy here but do not pressume I do not know what I am talking about. I have spoken to Allied veterans and I know how the memory of an event does not always tally with the facts. I listen but I do not take everything I hear as gospel. I have been, and still am, engaged in primary research in one area of the Normandy Campaign and I have never reacted in such an aggressive manner when asked to back anything I write. You may think you are above question but I beg to differ. Finaly I am not British so what is the point of this pre-amble?: "I have several great friends who are British and I care for the British people greatly. I think they are some of the most fantastic of all the peoples in the world. I definately care enough for my friends that I have to write this statement before I answer a tired question--because I want to make it sure that they definately know that none of these words are against them in any way, shape or form" Myself I have no problem questioning an 'American' claim if I want clarification without the need to apologise to the whole nation in advance. As is obvious from the above I am well able to reply in kind to any post I recieve and reputation will never deter me.
