    Yeah, one battle that costs US 29,000 American lives (and many more later) so Europe could be free from Nazis, and still some morons in Europe promote anti americanism... yeah maybe if they would face allmost complete extermination as central and east european countries had to, they would be more thankfull...

    Soldiers waiting for the doors top open.... anybody s guess that some of them may have been welcomed by German MG42s.

    Now, this might be totally unrelated but an interesting site about atrocities committed by both sides during WWII

    One of the most fascinating part of the WW II - the Normandy Landings!

    Commemorated by that fantastic film THE LONGEST DAY!
