Martin Steglich, French and Heinz-Georg Lemm

Martin Steglich (left), French (center) and Heinz-Georg Lemm (right.)  Just listening to these two veterans of almost six years of combat in World War II was a historical experience all by itself.  They knew everything about the infantry regiment, the backbone of the German Army.  Both began the war as lieutenants and platoon leaders, and ended the war as Infantry regimental commanders.
