Miguel Anderfuhrn 51 years old, conscript soldier
"At the beggining, beside the cold, everything was fine, but after 40 days, there was a time when we did not eat for almost a week. (...) At one point when the british were attacking us, I remember that our officer decided to run away all by him self without even telling us to retriete. The first four dead men of my Regiment (the N?7) died out of hunger. They went to look for food and they ended up in a minefield. We have to search for them and their bodies were all torned apart. After that, our officers punished us for having left our positions."
