I think you guys have the wrong boxer in VDH's account. Schmelling wasn't in his unit... VDH is talking about another boxer. Schmelling wrote at great length about his experience in his biography, which I read about a year ago. Good photos too. He did make the jump at Crete and hurt his back upon la...

Did these lineages matter to the...

Soldier's Legacy by Heinrich Boll

I just read this book (an english translation) and thought it was a pretty good work of fiction. I'm wondering if anyone else has read it and what they thought.

It's not without a couple of glitches, but overall, my favorite series too.

If you have CC5, I recommend the Gold-Juno-Sword Mod.

This is a complete re-do of the game from the strat map down to new units. Really well done.
