Not disagreeing about the "feel" of the thing (a bit like Memphis Bell in that aspect) it is just the incident with the Tiger I personally find far fetched, especially given the fact that the Germans were retreating at this stage of the conflict and husbanding resources, not to mention the very real threat from the allied air force for any movement in the open. I always remember the smell of churned earth and fumes from my short time with tanks, combined with the normal smells we humans tend to give off that become far more noticeable when closed up ! Long time ago for me now, and at least nobody was shooting live rounds at us.

Kind reagrds
