Apologies for a new thread - it should be a quick one.

Can anyone remember the set of orders by a German tank commander in WWII (I thought it was Wittman but had no joy searching for that) which went along the lines of "Drive forward, let nothing stand in your way..." or somesuch.

An arrser used to have it as his/her signature block.

I think it was Jochen Peiper in the Ardennes in '44. Wasn't he an SS officer & known as "the Devil's Adjutant"?

I believe he was implicated in war crimes in the Bulge fighting. After the war he was tried, served a short sentence & went to live in Belguim, where he was murdered in his cottage in the mid '50s.

All that is from memory, so if anyone knows the correct version I'd be keen to hear it.

Many thanks Foxs Marine - saved me days of searching for it. Jochen Peiper:

This was on telly last night.

For some unknown reason he moved to France following his release from nick and was pinged by former members of the Maquis in the mid 1970s.
His home was burned down and his charred body was found inside with bullet holes in it.

Nobody was ever arrested or charged with his killing.

I love the fact he kept trying to go to the States to flog Porsches. "Ach Buy zee das fine automobile or you Vill be shot".

Malmerdy? No bad blood caused there.
