The journalist Peter FitzSimons related an anecdote in his book Tobruk about Adolf Hitler during the Great War.
Apparently an unarmed Hitler came face to face with a British trooper who took pity on him and decided to not pull the trigger on an defenceless man and let him go. Later he wondered about his decision.
How authentic is this narrative? The author doesn’t quote his source.
