    Marauding veterans.
    Or rather veteran marauders.
    And all my youth passed by sad-hearted,
    the joy of Spring was never mine;
    Autumn blows through me dread of parting,
    and my heart dreams and longs to die.

    - Nikolaus Lenau (1802-1850)

    Real misanthropes are not found in solitude, but in the world; since it is experience of life, and not philosophy, which produces real hatred of mankind.

    - Giacomo Leopardi (1798-1837)

    Here is someone who really deserved his Knight's Cross with Oak Leaves and Brilliants, one of the highest decorated soldiers of the Wehrmacht, Lieutenant General Dr. med. dent. Karl Mauss, the last commander of the 7th tank division of the Wehrmacht. One of the best soldiers in the world and also responsible for the reorganization of the German student fraternity movement after the war.

    His fraternity, the Burschenschaft Germania in Hamburg proudly displays his portrait and his Knight's Cross in their house.
    And all my youth passed by sad-hearted,
    the joy of Spring was never mine;
    Autumn blows through me dread of parting,
    and my heart dreams and longs to die.

Yesterday, i got an Iron Cross (second class) 1939 in Britain which i got for a good price and from a reputable collector. It's quite an excellent buy i think, its quite worn but the years and swastika are still easily discernable while the ribbon is a little worse for wear. Its quite amazing to own pieces that people once really deserved and no doubt cherished while they lived, though it saddens me that families can sell these things on without a care for their REAL value (not monetary) or the people who earned them, i know my Grandfather's medals will never leave our family!Two pictures of an Iron Cross like mine:
    I find it refreshing Scathach that you have this interest in history. For whatever reason it seems most women do not.

    I am impressed! :-)

    Turman found a copy of The Graduate, and thought highly enough of the story that he made a movie he considered to be 90-percent faithful to the book.

    But Turman and director Mike Nichols made one key adaptation, changing the Braddocks from WASP-y blonde characters into a dark-haired, more ethnic-looking family.

    I have a tiny collection of WWII stuff, mostly inexpensive things ($1-85 is about my price range for this stuff) because I'm not an extremely serious collector.

    These are just a few of the things I have collected thus far:

    1. cigarette card showing Hitler visiting Landsberg prison
    2. a "Hitler head" stamp
    3. a stamp from Italia
    4. War Merit Cross without Swords, the ribbon is cut down to 3 inches but original

    In the future I'd like to add some Hungarian items.

    This is my sole item of militaria. It is a Nazi sword that was given to me by my mother-in-law.
    I wish that I knew more details about its history as my father-in-law died when my husband was a child. The story goes, "My father-in-law, who was in the American Army, acquired this sword when he removed it from the body of a dead Nazi officer."
    I keep it in its scabbard propped up against the wall in my living room.
