Stalingrad was a good movie. War of the Rats is written by David L. Robbins. It came out in 1999, a really good read, the ISBN# is 0-553-58135-X.

I thought all SS soldiers and especially officers if captured by Red Army forces recieved an immediate death sentence. This man must have had lady luck following hi...

Hello Kocjo from Schomberg, Ontario Canada. I was just looking in the gallery and came across your photo of the Panzer-werk-station. Great picture of the Freis Crane. The camoflagued crane is full of great detail. Thanks for the great posting!
