Video bio of Kurt Knispel, Germany's top tank killer

Recommended Posts

Kurt Knispel was in the thick of it from Barbarossa until late in the war. He was gunner or TC in practically all principal Panzers except the Panther and racked up a total of 168 kills. Not only is the most informative, but it got lots of wonderful clips of weaponry and fighting at various times and places during the war. Has some shots of destroyed Russian tanks with lots of markings and slogans visible, too. Spot read comments and found them informative and insightful. Input from veterans and their offspring on their own encounters with the Panzers were especially valuable.

Regards,

John Kettler

Like the fact that he was quiet a rebel with an heart also for his enemies. That he never received an Iron Cross shows again how often these awards are more subjective, political, and superior-dependant than being based on real military achievements.
