We know that these reminiscences cannot be strictly true … The greatest
heroes of the war are still in the land of the living, for they are
ourselves, and in telling our stories we generally so proportion the
details with each repetition as to magnify more and more our errors
until with frequent telling we end with actually believing ourselves to
be the very heroes our stories make us out to be.
