Dare I say he didn't have that quite innocent look making him a trustworthy person?

He was a deeply troubled individual, a child molester pervert with a growing reputation as an alcoholic fascinated by war ever since the Great War until the Warsaw uprising and the Condor Legion during the Spanish civil war.

Despicable character but who earned his medals to an extent with the blood of Partisans and poles. One of the most brutal soldier (Doubt he should be called that) war criminal in history.
