Famous WW2 Quote"No bastard ever won a war by dying for his country. You win the war by making the other poor dumb bastard die for his country!"
George Patton, 31 May 1944

My father was a driver for the 44th Royal Tank Regiment who crossed the Rhine in duplex drive Shermans. The Regimental history has a great description of the radio transmissions from one that lost power and floated down stream with the current.
The 44th was the first British armoured regiment into Germany.
