Terrible way to go in WWII
#1

One of the worst ways I can imagine to reach my demise (as if there was a good way...) during WWII would be to find myself in a foxhole beneath a tank on the Eastern front. Both sides did this: The tank driver would lock the brake on one tread and put the tank into gear, creating a corkscrew effect...you can imagine the rest. This was probably done on the Western front too, but not as often, as the tactics differed somewhat, whereas the Germans and Russians often went at each other on a WWI level of combat. I cannot condemn the Tanker for doing this because if he didn't the chances were good that the soldier in that hole would attach a magnetic mine to the underbelly of his tank as it passed over him! Medievil rage with 20th Century weaponry!
