Sitting down to interview Herbert Rosenberg, a formidable 94-year-old World War II veteran, I had been informed of a few things by his daughter Carol Segev, who was the go-between for arranging our meeting.

First, that her father was still very much in possession of his mental and physical capacities despite his mighty age, managing to go to the gym three times a week. Second, that his experiences of the Second World War were ones that he had up until recently told virtually no one.
