Soon after Otto Carius graduated from school, World War II broke out. Carius enlisted in the army and first served in the infantry, before volunteering for the Panzer branch.[1][1] In 1943, Carius transferred to the 502nd Heavy Panzer Battalion. He became commander of a Jagdtiger company of the 512th Heavy Antitank Battalion at the beginning of 1945. On 8 March 1945, 2nd Company was directed to the front line near Siegburg, where it took part in the defense of the River Rhine. He surrendered to the United States Army on 7 May 1945 and was released on 21 May 1945.[2] After the war, Carius set up a pharmacy which was aptly called “Tiger Apotheke”. Carius died on 24 January 2015 at age 92. He is considered a “panzer ace” credited with destroying more than 150 enemy tanks, mostly on the Eastern Front
