Mmmhhh, wise conclusion.
It seems that you are ageing fastly at the contact of the tough veterans who honor this forum of their participation.

Hi Annelie, Since these Veterans having been doing this for forty years why should they be stopped because of "maybe" some interest group wanting to use them Not maybe, Annelie, not maybe. Facts are there. An interesting French forum and website about the Volunteers has been recently closed. Reasons...

Hi Sid, Hi Daniel, Arminius's real complaint is that they weren't allowed to make a massed public display of it I know, that's why I posted about the reasons behind it, i.e. XXIst century neo-nazis attempts to abuse of those people for their own political reasons. Note: I am NOT trying here to say t...

Hi Sid, Just like China appoints its own Lamas in Tibet China also has a "tamed" official Catholic Church that don't recognise the Authority of the Pope, plus an underground one who follows the Vatican. It's moving ahead a bit those days, The Vatican and China are talking to each other through the (...

Hi Helmut, it is a shame that the police in Germany are so left wing nowadays Have you read my post above? I recall that in Germany, as well as in France and several other European countries, Nazi or Neo-Nazi parties, literature, expressions, demonstrations, etc... are forbidden by law. Those laws w...

Hi, everybody, There are 2 things within the story of the police at the memorial: 1 - The right of the veterans and their families to pay respect to their fallen comrades or parents. There, I fully agree with Haen and others, sorry Sid. 2 - BUT there is a slight problem that you may not know about, ...

After all, there were no Waffen SS men flying Stukas right into Big Ben or the Kremlin right No, right. V1 and V2 were the Nazis attempts to do it. It seems that I am more or less the sole one in this forum in a position to properly translate Torquez tough language directly from Polish to English (...

Hi Sid, Were they unlucky? Probably, because few (if any?) other French ex-W-SS men were sentenced to death for treason. Heck, Jean Mabire made a career out of interviewing them! None, I repeat NONE of the former French Volunteers to the Eastern Front who managed to survive the war, the POW camps an...

Hi Helmut,
Good one !
I don't know what Torquez will say about that one, but a good one, congrats.

By the way, can a Moderator correct the title of that interesting thread. We are talking about the battle for Monte Cassino here, not about some gambling place

Hi Helmut, I didn't understood from Torquez post that he was saying that the Polish soldiers hated the German soldiers, he just said (If I got it right) that it must have been a blow to the morale of the German troops when they realised that a Polish unit was able to defeat them, because od the effe...

The trouble with the Net is that one can drive properly a car without having any idea about what exactly the noisy dirty stuff under the bonnet consists of, but seemingly can't drive properly a PC without understanding the (Kind) advices provided by Nordwest :(
