Germans are known to have shot their own wounded soldiers in order to avoid dealing with them.
(From a newspaper)
Fritz is wounded. He will not need
To suffer through 'till morning.
Just in time, to Fritz's side
Rushes, with nurse's bag,
A "sister of mercy."
The bag is of no help;
The frost is too severe for wrapping bandages...
She knows just the cure:
An instant bullet to sounded Fritz's head,
And how do you do!
