It only had 2 rockets, so I started shooting. First rocket blew the wheels of the first panzer that caught fire and exploded. Another rocket hit the second tank in the front side, making a nice explosion that obliterated many jerries that were along, but the last Tiger was approaching and I only had some grenades. I couldn’t target it right because of my foot so I took my jacket of, filled it with all the grenades that I could find in the pit and threw it on the road near the panzer. When the bag was right under the Tiger, I grabbed a rifle and started shooting the bag. When I finally hit it right, it blew away the tank. A medic grabbed me to a safe place and treated my knee. We were about to face a great offensive…
