    So it may have been this.
    Naw. It was Fritzes and Ivans or Nemtsy and Russisch mostly, so some other easy nicknames. Black death sounds very nice in Russian, but it's mouthful in German.

    Hmm, it was a diary by William Hoffman, but their seemed to be two versions of it one doesn't mention who the men were firing from the grain elevator and some minor other diffrences ? Maybe it is fake.

    I never doubted that. I just dislike propaganda names because they actually devalue real stuff, sort of make it less credible. Those men did more than enough, there is absolutely no need for phoney bombastic tales.
