    A) It is not a sword but a decorative sabre.

    B) Your father-in-law is a looter and thus a war criminal.
    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)

    If he had killed the Nazi officer, would he still be considered a looter?
    It is possible that this is what happened...

    The vase is WW1 vintage "trench art" brought over by my Great-Grandfather during WW1, he traded a pow cigarettes for it. The cross of Lorraine is on one side with AEF on the other. Prisoners would often spend their time putting together vases or crucifixes made from cartridges, shell cases and belt buckles then use them to barter with soldiers. Other picture is just my knife/bayonet collection. Top is German k98k bayonet, RZM marked 7/13 Schüttlehofer Hitler Youth and two Finnish bayonets. I guess Finnish bayonets are kind of scarce as Finns didn't really use them much, they would often just pitch them.

    Some photographs of our Doughboys from WWI (1917-1918). These photos are all from the same album and are probably taken in Texas. The women (also from the same album) are examples of the hotties the GI's could of dated ..er...courted...at that time.

    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.

    Post Third Reich store

    Here's one that some of you might not have heard of. It's got excellent replicas of awards, medals, badges, field gear and even a couple uniforms

    For the militaria fans here

    Now this is what I call a real cannon. The size of this thing is incredible!! It was actually used during the siege of Sevastopol and amongst others made small change of a Soviet underwater munitions storage facility it targeted.

    Yeah, but only two were built and only one of them was ever used in WWII. They were called "Schwerer Gustav" (Heavy Gustav) and "Dora". A third one (Langer Gustav) was in production, but it was never finished and it took a lot of resources to produce it. They were both calibre 80 cm and constructed to destroy fortresses. Dora was in use at Sevastopol, to destroy the fortresses there, but it shot only 48 rounds during the whole siege and it was never used again. Schwerer Gustav and Dora were blown up by the Germans in 1945 and Langer Gustav, who was never finished was destroyed by a bombing raid.
