A striking quote from the Battle of Kursk

Nikolai Vladimirovich Shalygin, leader of a squadron of Shturmovik ground-attack aircraft, as reported by Vasily Grossman:

"I feel as if I were a hawk, not a man. And one does not think about humanity. No, there are no such thoughts. We clear the way. It is good, when the way is clear and everything is on fire"
