Tom Irvine


Capt. Wilson meets the Russians near Chemnitz--"Henry had to do all the talking because the only common language they had with the Russians was French. It was my understanding that educated Russians spoke French. He learned from the Russians that before you have a party in which there might be some alcohol to be consumed (the Russians cheated), they would drink a slug of olive oil to coat their stomach. With the Russians it was a great thing of prestige--you were the victor--if you drank your friend under the table."
