Alekhine in WWI

Alekhine was one of the greatest chess players that ever lived (I guess this is as opposed to those who haven’t lived, but I digress).  In WWI in 1916 he was wounded. I don’t know if he was blinded by the war, but he played this blindfold game of chess.  With a comical start, it is a doozy.
