One small tiny difference. Steiner was a bleeding NAZI
Steiner HATED Nazi's.
Yes I read the book, bought it from Amazon:
STEINER: MAN, MYTH, GENIUS, LEGEND (Ambrose, 1991) T.WAT Publishing Co.
I thought Ambroses' book was right on the money. Ambrose argues forcefully that Steiner's excellent combat record was purely down to bouts of severe violence caused by a long standing peanut brittle addiction, that took hold of the young Steiner in the 1920's. At the age of ten the young German was partially eaten by a Gruffalo - "What's a Gruffalo?" I hear you ask. "A Gruffalo. Why don't you know? [Er no, lets not go down that path] while walking through the deep dark Bavarian wood.
Although he survived the ordeal, he was forever thereafter addicted to the peanut brittle that was administered as pain relief. The brittle addiction became worse as the years wore on, and by the time he was marching into Poland in September 1939 he was well and truly on the Brazilian.
Having survived the war, Steiner moved to Wyoming where he has been able to live a normal Wyoming peanut farmers life; marrying his sister in 1949, he fathered three daughter (who grew one tooth between them).
The BPB habit never left him though and this addiction caused Steiner's brain to shrink. In his frail dotage, indignity was visited upon this sad ex-soldier; in 2005 he took a liking to American Football, and was promptly declared insane. In the last year, now 117, he has been left with little to occupy his days but post banal, childlike comments on a wargaming forum.
Where to begin. I love books from T.WAT publishers. Especially their KSMEYEASS line.
Steiner may have encounter some issues due to BPB in 2005. But in November 2011 he was administered massive doses of CPB and his brain expanded to twice that of a normal British footballer prancing around in shorts tossing his long, flowing hair. UUUHH, where were we. In 1986 Steiner married a lovely woman from South Africa(here as a foreign exchange student) and fathered 3 more children. All are brilliant, after their dad, and all entered the IT field(also following dad's 9th career).
