Andre The point I am trying to make is simply that that in both situations innocent civilians were caught in the cross fire. Sure, It was a much worse situation in Warsaw and bad atrocitys were performed by some German units. We will never know how many non combatants were trapped in Fallujah and it...

All good points Sid here is an excerpt from a page on the Warsaw uprising on the historylearningsite.uk that mention that some civilians were given an opportunity to leave during a lull in operations "Right into September, the Home Army based its hope on receiving help from the Red Army that was nea...

I do not condone the methods used in this no quarter given battle, but believe some similarities can be drawn with Operation Phantom Fury in Fallujah as far as innocent civilians getting caught in the crossfire and illegal use of white phosphorus against enemy personnel and civilians by the U.S. Ar...

To remind us that such people arise when the circumstances permit. Dirlewanger is not a well known reprobate outside communitys like this and even some here don't know much about the Dirlewanger Brigade.
