Q: One question many people may have is how can you not have hatred for the

Russians after your experiences with them?



A: One thing I learned is this: Never allow yourself to hate a people because of

the actions of a few. Hatred and bigotry destroyed my nation, and millions

died. I would hope that most people did not hate Germans because of the

Nazis, or Americans because of slaves. Never hate, it only eats you alive.

Keep an open mind and always look for the good in people. You may be

surprised at what you find.

I was being addressed by my new Wing Commander (Hrabak) when a fighter

came in smoking, and suddenly landed, flipped over and exploded. We knew

the pilot was dead. One of the men said that ?it is Krupinski?, and out of the

blinding smoke this man walked out of the wreckage with a singed uniform,

but no other damage. He was smiling and complained about the flak over the

Caucasus, but without any real surprise on his face. This was my first meeting

with ?The Count.?

hehe that's a cool guy http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_cool.gif http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif<div class="ev_tpc_signature">

Excellant read as always. The lack of comment has little to do with it being about a German and much about it being the gazzilionth time it's been posted.

That being said you may have very well introduced someone new to simming/WWII history to the top scoring Ace of all time so well done.<div class="ev_tpc_signature">

I hadn't read it.

I enjoyed it very much. Such honor. I hadn't read anything regarding E. Hartmann (I knew he was a famous ace, but that was it).

I would like to read more Hartmann interviews if you happen to run accross them.

....I understand that you understand almost nothing in computer technology(regarding how to get all features working well in one great code and how to get it fully optimized for all aspects of the game and where developers must go for compromisses), because you are speaking bla-bla-bla about things that you don't know. Sorry I don't like to offend you. But it looks like it looks. - Oleg Maddox

..... Maybe the on-line servers like WC should offer cash rewards for shooting down some SH pilot. Imagine watching gigantic dogfight furballs on TV. WE all know how BORING the poker series are on TV. This would put it shame. (I'd, of course, enable FULL GORE for the entertainment of the viewing audience.

Then we could do international competitions.

Somebody take a memo to EA and Ubi.<div class="ev_tpc_signature">
