In winter of 1944, with overtaxed supply lines in the Ardennes, a German medic had completely run out of plasma, bandages and antiseptic. During one particularly bad round of mortar fire, his encampment suddenly became a bloodbath. The survivors claimed to hear, above the screams and barked commands of their Lieutenant, someone cackling with almost girlish glee.
The medic made his rounds during the fire, in almost complete darkness as he had so many times before, but never this short on supplies.
The bombardment moved to other ends of the line, most men dropped off to sleep in the still dark hours of the morning – New Year’s Day, 1945.
The men awoke at first light with screams. They discovered that their bandages were not typical bandages at all, but hunks and strips of human flesh. Several men had been given fresh blood transfusions, with no blood supplies available. Each treated man was almost completely covered, head-to-toe, with the maroon stain of blood.
The medic was found, sitting on an ammunition tin, staring off into space. When one man approached him, tapped him on the shoulder, his tunic fell off to reveal all skin, muscle, and sinew had been stripped from his torso and his body almost completely dried of blood. In one hand was a scalpel, and in the other, a blood transfusion vial.
None of the men treated for wounds that night, in that camp, saw the end of January, 1945.

What the hell is this? LOL creepy yeah, but LOL WHAT?
i think it’s a sad story, in the fact that this man did so much as to give up is body and blood to try and save these people. Though it is creep, it’s also sad knowing a man would go so far as to try and save everyone even as he’s facing death in the face.
Don’t be serious guys, we all know that it was Candlejack who did all of tha
I like….a lot…..
That medic is a spy
This one is really moving. He gave his sweat, flesh and blood for his comrades.
AND THATS HOW I LOST MY MEDICAL LISCENSE!
THEN WHO WAS DOCTOR?!
Wow… That’s one dedicated medic.
THEN WHO WAS 1944????
What was laugh? –> Ze sound of progress my friend!
What was laugh?
Ze sound of progress my friend!
Excellent but for the last line. I love the idea of a medic going mad and his tormented soul working through all of the wounded with his own flesh and blood. Bravo!
They should have waited for the med kits to respawn.
The men who were treated didn’t die, they were still alive and they never forgot what had happened. That’s what the last line was saying.
GET BEHIND ME DOCTOR
Anders Blankheart: Maybe they died because the bandages were FLESH THAT WAS PRESUMABLY ROTTING
MY SKILL IS WASTED ON THIS TEAM
Fantastic. Surgeon is inspired.
TBH I think he was murdered. I think he was gonna use his tunic then SOMETING killed him and butchered him.
the medic was retarded
It would have been cooler if they all lived.
so in the end they all die anyway, lol
Yess I get 2 be the first to say it! HE HAD AIDS!
Are you guys just not reading! Obviously it was Mr Giggles who tore the medic up and treated ’em!
THAT MEDIC IS A SPY!
In one hand, a bonesaw, and in the other, his medgun.
LOL I MADE A TEAM FORTRESS 2 JOKE
You guys DIED?! What the FUCK! That shit hurt, you ASS HOLES.
I think the girlish mad laughter was his own of watching not only his supplies dwindle but that night after night the men he patches up die or get hurt again. Yo’d be surprised at the things the crazed can accomplish.
*streches ze rubber glove* ZAT, vas Doktor Assisted Homocide! *snaps ze rubber glove*
*takes a hit off the Kritzcrieg*
I agree with the first person.
The last sentence screws it up.
My theory is that the medic fucked himself up off of drugs and was cackling madly as he tore himself to shreds.
But that’s just me and my crazy-ass mind.
I think that’s it supposed to be that something used the medic’s body to heal them, and it was the one laughing.
…Or it was a spy.
i agree with the first guy, that last line just makes me think “what the heck, he just gave himself to them so they could live [in an epically cool way], that’s heroism, not an omen of death.”
but yeah, medic using himself = super creepy.
Why did they all die?
They were in a war.
1. They died of mortar fire.
2. They died of gunfire.
3. They died of other reasons that would happen in war.
4. wrong blood type :\
THEN WHO WAS CACKLING WITH ALMOST GIRLISH GLEE?
I wonder, in the first paragraph, what the girlish giggle has to do with anything?
why didn’t he use his clothes?
I mean, better naked than dead.
…unless he had a small package. then I understand.
Why couldn’t he just use the flesh and blood of the freshly dead soldiers? Maybe he was possesed…
I keep imagining the TF2 medic, who coincidentally, is also German.
I have never been so afraid to backstab a medic before. I fear his coat might fall off.
SPY SAPPIN’ SENTRY!
This is what happens when medic tries to heal anyone other than a heavy. Lol
WHO WAS MEDIC’S SKIN?
Why didn’t he use his tunic to bandage the soldiers?
Well, it tends to get cold in January.
Kind of useless for him to go through all that trouble just for them all to die.
*INSERT TEAM FORTRESS 2 JOKE ABOUT MEDIC CLASS HERE*
this one has too many questions
why did they die? who was laughing? how did more than one get blood transfusions if the doctor is one guy?
Why is the sky blue, Why does cookie monster not have diabetes, why can’t we eat each other without gagging, why is that dinosaur in my living room? life is full of questions.
It was the Spy!
What I don’t get is the medic didn’t use his healing beam.
I’ve never been sure on this one. Did he use his own flesh and blood in an attempt to heal the patients, or did something else use the doctors flesh and blood to try and heal the patients?
I’m more inclined toward the latter as it’d be impossible for a man to continue to rip off his own flesh and draw his own blood long enough to tend to numerous wounded… I guess that’s meant to be the creepy part if it was the medic, but it makes much more sense that someone or something else used the docs body to patch people up, then posed his dead body for them to find the next day. It was dark after all.
Yes, but it would be alot creepier and yet also a little more “awww he cares about them <3" if he used his own self, stripping himself of all flesh and denying himself the right to die in order to fix his patients.
well, don’t you think that he would have blacked out due to the intense amount of pain that it would cause? Just a suggestion, good pasta though.
Yeah, but like SJ said, maybe the doctor saw it as duty to heal the patients and wouldn’t let himself die without at least trying.
NOW YOU HAVE MY PERMISSION TO DIE BANE!
sorry ur comment made me think of that
THEN WHO WAS GIRLISH GIGGLE?
Exactly what I was thinking!!
So he used his own skin and blood to heal his patients?
one dedicated doctor
I liked. Alot.
I think I’ll be the german medic for halloween.
The Nazi’s were far more disturbed than that if you have been to Germany let alone be near Hitlers main training base. You learn a lot, such as the experiments they conducted on imprisoned mates. One of the most notorious doctors was Dr. Josef Mengele. He at one point attempted to create artificial Siamese twins by sewing two mutilated children together. And some times fed human flesh to the subjects, And himself!
He actually was ordered to sew them together in the shape of a swastika. Some crazy shit.
They also shrunk the heads of death camp inmates to use as paper weights, they dissected brains of Jews to see how they thought, they were some fucked up people
the last sentence should be removed, it makes it better.
The last sentence is what gives it the irony
