"Was it the cold, the fear, the letterless days, the dark, the not knowing where or when or was it all of these? ...Whatever it was, wherever and whenever we were scared because we were strictly on our own. Except for the few basic things that we learned in the States, like blackout and water discipline, all this was new and different, the situations never seemed to apply..."
