      Sorry about that.

      Try this:
      http://www.vex.net/~nizkor/hweb/imt/...6-150-05.shtml (towards the bottom of the page, best to search by his name -- August Winter)

      -or-

      http://www.nizkor.org/hweb/imt/tgmwc...6-150-05.shtml (also towards the bottom)

      In the first one he states:

      "Q. But had you any facts on which to base this impression?"

      "A. We had a number of facts which, we thought, confirmed that impression. I will state them briefly. First of all, there was the strength of the troops we were fighting, which, although I cannot give you figures now, was greater than the figures mentioned in our marching orders. Then there was the forced deployment of troops so near the frontier, which was striking; the unusually large proportion of armoured troops, far exceeding anything we had expected; and the deployment of a comparatively strong group opposite the Hungarian border, which we could not explain to ourselves as a defensive force. One point is particularly significant; the fact that during the first week we found that captured enemy staffs were equipped with maps which covered a large area of German or ex-Austrian territory which, again, did not seem to accord with purely defensive considerations. In addition we observed a number of smaller things, not very important in themselves."

        Of course, they may have simply needed these maps to try and keep track of where all the hundreds of German units were being stationed before their invasion.

        Did you ever speak with your Grandfather about this? I'm wondering if he ever said what the other "smaller things" were?

        Imagine a ball of iron, the size of the sun. And once a year a tiny sparrow brushes its surface with the tip of its wing. And when that ball of iron, the size of the sun, is worn away to nothing, your punishment will barely have begun.

            No...he died when I was young, and he was not in direct contact, as far as I know, with his cousin, August.
