re: World War II's strangest battle: When U.S. and German soldiers fought together - Champagne
That is a very strange battle, for sure. They should make a movie about it. My guess is that the 150 or so 17th SS Division soldaten that attacked were French SS men, i.e. from France. That Waffen SS division had some French soldiers. Why were the French attacking after Hitler was dead? ...

re: Thought it deserved its own thread: History photos (colored pre-war Nazi photos) - Champagne
Well, your point is still important, because you emphasize the point that the German people and the German military at that point in history were steeped in authoritarian rule. It was in their DNA at that point, because they had always been ruled by an Emperor, a King or a Fuhrer, except for the sho...

That "oath" issue is not as huge as one might think. During Germany's Imperial Days, they took an oath to obey the Kaiser. All that happened with the Nazis is that they replaced "Kaiser" with "Adolf Hitler." They never took an oath to "Germany" at any time in German history at that point....

Yeah, those ammo cans on the front of the Sherman are very cool. I think that might be .50 cal ammo for the .50 on the turret. Looks like too much fun shooting all that .50 ammo. :lol:...

[quote]In the opening phase of the Korean war our forces lacked any real anti-tank capability other than a few towed antitank guns and bazookas. Even in WWII the Bazooka was a poor antitank weapon. Against the well sloped armor of the T34-85's, it was virtually useless. [/quote] Task Force Smith ...

And, as we know, most WW2 tanks and assault guns had a coaxial MG and a bow mounted MG. The post WW2 tank designs moved somewhat away from the bow MGs due to this stuctural weakness. It seems that this structural weakness was a lesson learned from WW2. You can speak more to that with your experience...

re: Picture of the shite stain that was exterminated last night in Garland. - Champagne
[quote]I also have no respect for liberals who simply will not condemn anything Muslim (e.g. how it treats women generally) but who will blast Christians for doing something 1/1000 as bad. This puzzles me. I have friends who go into hysterics over someone suggesting that abortion rights should not b...

[quote]They did have the ability to mount a heavy 12.7mm machine gun but from what I've seen this was rarely done. [/quote] As you know, Darth, one problem with cutting a hole into an armor plate in order to create a machine gun port is that cutting that hole creates a weak point in that armor...

Remember that Star Trek episode when Spock and Kirk had to dress up like Nazis? That was cool. Also in color. Also, I don't know why people would think that the German Tiger I or Panther tanks were almost impossible to repair in the field. That's not true. As long as the tank could be reached ...
