... you know, it's one thing to cross a line of departure armed and as a combatant, but it's quite another to wander the forward edge of the battle area armed with only a couple of cameras & documenting what's out there ... this guy had major balls of brass.

That must have been quite an experience, were you one of the 'Horst's Army' of young photographers they mentioned in the article?

No I met him much later in life. When I freelanced out of New York.
