Oberleutnant Fritz Fischer strode over to his crew waiting patiently beside their T-72M tank. “Guten Morgen Kameraden,” he greeted them, “we’re going west! Grab your gear and mount up.” Fischer had just returned from a battalion briefing. It looked like this year’s Warsaw Pact manoeuvres were about to morph into something more. He’d just received orders to assemble his company and move to the West German frontier. Once there they were to await further orders, but rumours were already circulating that war was imminent. As he and his crew got the T-72 on the road on the morning of 3 August 1985, he pondered what was to come, and how he and his crew would fare.
