Walther von Reichenau.jpgIn an attempt to keep fit, Reichenau used to go on a daily cross-country run. On January 12, 1942, he ran several miles in temperatures well below minus 20 degrees Fahrenheit. When he returned, he complained of feeling unwell and, later that day, he had a severe heart attack. After being unconscious for five days, it was decided to fly him back to Germany. Walter von Reichenau died on January 17, 1942, when the plane carrying him to Leipzig crash-landed.
