    My grandfather was a German Sanitäter in ww2. He told me many stories. When a soldier got hit, he, most of the time, just injected something (I forgot what) into the wound, then covered the wound and carried the soldier to the next medical tent.
    But he was also wounded many time while being on the front, especially as a medic. He got hit by granades many times and once shot by a tracer ammunition into the chest, but survived because the bullet was stopped by his singing book and Russian dictionary. He's now 96 years old and still in good condition.

    I was a medic with the SADF
    In camp I had a red beret, and my strips were red as opposed to the normal infantry brown.
    In the bush, both came off and I carried a 7.62mm R1 rifle which I knew how to use ~ because I was a prime target

    WWII wasn't a regular war. Germans did conduct the war of annihilation, disregarding civilians life on their occupied territories, since the local popultaion were regarder as inferiors; they had no place in new german reich, and they all were destined to starve and die. So I see no problem german medics being killed.

      @TheFandrian Hmm I don't disagree with that but I agree to disagree on who's the worst. Since war crimes were committed by every country during WWII in different forms.
      U.S. not capturing drowned ships on the Atlantic Warfare, Putting their own people with Japanese Heritage into Psuedo Concentration Camps just to force their allegiance to the U.S., and Firebombing Cities that have no Military value due to them bombing every part of Japan in their doctrine. The Japanese Emperor and a few Generals plead for Surrender a few times as soon as the Soviets began their move on their empire, and U.S. still not accepting such surrender.
      Japan and Germany doing tons of war time atrocities.
      French rebels targeting German civilians for mistaking them as supporters of Germany.
      USSR doing similar atrocities Japan did albeit hidden to general public.
      British Air forces targeting Civilian Only Areas due to the inefficiency to the Bombers.
      China razing their own crops for the war effort.

      @SOX Shimoneta SOX Shimoneta this what happened when you put military industries in cities also japan was given notices to surrender of an upcoming extermination but they think it somekind of a normal bunker bomb. Noo at least the filipinos didn't kill 30 million alone and 120 across asia then they did nanking and stabbing babies with bayonet like its golf or the death railway which killed thousands,you really don't need to be suprise why south east asian countries hate even some today. At least their not indonesians unlike trained them to help japan to defend the occupied dutch east indies against the allies then when the nukes bombed japan suprise suprise they bayoneted sickle and bambooed them take their weapons starts a nationwide revolt killing every jap soldiers,civillians or decents and later fought and then when the allies think the indonesians was on their side they fought them. They literally fought both the axis and the allies.

    • SOX Shimoneta
      SOX Shimoneta Před 7 dny

      @TheFandrian the a-bombs targeting Hiroshima and Nagasaki, well known spots for industrial and civilian congregation, Fire bombing almost every Japanese city in their homeland causing many civilians to die and the targets were usually civilian rather than industrial or military bases. At least Japan has not reached Filipino levels of brutality, as the natives would literally torture the soldiers and civilians(including Americans if given a chance) and then brutally killing them like there's no tomorrow.

    • TheFandrian

      @SOX Shimoneta britain did bombed german cities tho and france just didn't even survive like a year. Sure america wanted to destroy military industries and strategical points but that's nothing compare to what japan did
