    I thought the 442nd Regimental Combat Team was still in Italy at this time.

    Note how the German MG42s are firing, not directly forward at an American advancing force (I think this photo was taken from the rear of the German position...

    Politics: Re: 2018 midterm elections catch-all thread

    The 27th was pending for 202 years, 223 days.

    All true, but before 911, it was awesome place to start/finish air travel. You can park 100 yards from your baggage check-in and gate, security was right next to your gate. Very simple. It was even...

    I'm not sure, but I don't think many of the defenders of the Reichstag survived or, if they did survive, lived very long.

    Democrats' wins could help bring down Confederate statues

    Lee and Jackson may be coming down after all.

    Reminds me of Richard Kirkland, Company G, 2nd South Carolina at the battle of Fredericksburg. He got out of his protected position and went forward to give water to wounded Union soldiers.

    The last unit defending the Reichstag in 1945 was the remnants of the SS Charlemagne Division, the French SS division. Ironic that Frenchmen (probably some recruited in the Calais office) were...

    Re: Possible Playoff Scenarios - with Bama

    Well, if a meteor hits Clemson, S.C., Baton Rouge, and Columbus, Ohio on Wednesday, we'd be likely to make the playoffs.

    I do not think so. I cannot recall where that story would have fit in. The storyline stops at the winding down of Market-Garden (late September 1944) and then jumps to December 16th 1944, when the...
