I read Alf Blackburn's Wartime Memoirs and he mentions the water rationing of 1 pint a day. It wasn't any better for the DAK and the Italians.

Does anyone know if the men who served there in any army had kidney stones later in life? I'd imagine it would be much higher for them since they couldn't hydrate as frequently.

I'd be dead in 2 days, 3 max on a pint of water, I actually sweat when it is hot.

I have never met anyone , but plenty of stories from both sides of the conflict of the severe water shortages results on their long term health.
