During WWI, a British soldier had a chance to kill Hitler, but didn’t!

In the last moments before the end of World War I, Private Henry Tandey fought in a battle near the French town of Marcoing, when a wounded enemy soldier entered his line of fire.

Deciding that he could’t shoot an unarmed, wounded man, he only took aim but never fired. The enemy nodded as a thanking gestured and limped away. The enemy? Adolf Hitler.

Tandrey was later given the Victoria Cross, a high honor in the English army. Hitler even kept a newspaper clipping of this event and even sent his regards through the Prime Minister of England!
