Books. Bikes. Boomsticks.
"Hige sceal þe heardra, heorte þe cenre, mod sceal þe mare, þe ure mægen lytlað…"
What's the title?
A compilation book, actually; Frontsoldaten, by Stephen G. Fritz.
Did the same on Friday evening, when it went down to -19 Centigrade (we're metric heathens up here) in Montreal. Choice of book? Anthony Beevor's _Stalingrad_.
I can read HMS Ulysses by Maclean, be sitting on the porch in 85 degree weather and still feel the need to get a jacket or blanket.
I was watching Battlefield Detectives where they did a show onStalingrad. Interesting stuff on hbow each of the two armies dealt with the cold. It was so cold that the lube in the guns froze. The russians mixed gasoline with their lube and their guns didn't freeze.
