I interviewed Mr. Ross at his home. The tape has some outside sounds, as he was babysitting two small grandsons.
He was unable to elaborate on specifics during his time with the partisans. He considers that time as one of certain hardship, but no more so than any soldier during a war. That he was "free" and able to fight made it seem like a "good" time.
To him, the time spent after the war in D.P. camps seemed much harsher.
