Stoessi's Heroes - New Releases

Stoessi's Heroes offers four new WW2 characters:

Hans–Ulrich Freiherr von Luck und Witten (15 July 1911 – 1 August 1997), usually shortened to Hans von Luck, was a German officer in the Wehrmacht of Nazi Germany during World War II.
Luck served with the 7th Panzer Division and 21st Panzer Division.
He saw action in Poland, France, the Soviet Union, North Africa and finally in Normandy where he was awarded the Knight’s Cross of the Iron Cross for the fierce resistance that he put up during the Allied Operation Goodwood.
Luck is author of the book Panzer Commander.
Schuh and Funk were working together as a machine gun crew on the Western Front with the special SS unit, SS-Panzer-Division “Hitlerjugend” in the summer of 1944. Both were given the Iron Cross for knocking out a Canadian Churchill tank with just an MG-42 machine gun. With no other weapon at their disposal, they aimed tracer rounds at a fuel tank on the Churchill and took out the enemy tank.While Funk survived the war and passed away in 2011, Schuh was killed in action in June 1944.
Gert Fröbe plays Unteroffizier Kaffeekanne (”coffee pot”) in the movie “The Longest Day”. He is one of the first German soldiers to see the massive allied invasion fleet with his own eyes…
Lauri Allan Törni, later known as Larry Thorne, was a Finnish Army captain who led an infantry company against the Soviet Union in the Finnish Winter and Continuation Wars and moved to the United States after World War II. He fought under three flags: Finnish, German (when he again fought the Soviets in World War II), and American (where he was known as Larry Thorne) when he served in U.S. Army Special Forces in the Vietnam War.
