What an impressive man. I wonder what he would have done had he survived the war.

Of course, I don't know what Knispel would have done, but if you hurry over to Germany, you might just be in time still to be served by former tank ace Otto Carius turned pharmacist in his cheekily named chemist's, Tiger (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Otto_Carius). Hurry, mind, as he is 92. It's a funny old world...

And pick up a personally inscribed copy of his book while you are at it (http://www.tiger-apotheke.de/).

For a man who was "on the same day shot through the leg, arm, 4 bullets in the back and one through the neck" he has had a charmed as well as a long life!
