My grandfather's U.S 2nd Inf went up againist two German fortifications, the Atlantic Port garrison of Brest and the Westwall. During both operations he was under his worst bombardments. A mortar attack at Brest and an 88 along the Westwall. His job in the Army was to cook, then haul the food to front line units. He told me along the Westwall the last thing you wanted to do was carry food to a unit on the frontline while both sides are dug in, you stick out like you have a target painted on you.

The reason the German U-boat War gets more attention than the U.S Sub War in the Pacific, is the German Beards.  cheesy

Germany had so many advantages in WWII with the Navy compared to the Kaiser's Navy, but had little to no Navy to work with.

The Southern Army was not as well armed in this fight, not all of the Confederates were armed with rifled muskets. A good many still carried smooth bores this early in the War.

N.B Forrest was one of the only Southerns to reach the Tenneesee River.

I'm a Texan, and it wasn't a Civil War, it was the war of northern aggression!

I'll second that thought, we also refer to the War as the War of Southern Independence.

I'm looking to purchase some C.S.A flags for Memorial Day for the three Confederate service men buried in my church's graveyard.

Certainly not.
My idea of glorious war died with the Empire.
Holding off natives armed with slices of fruit, while I shoot back with my repeating rifle from behind an eight foot barricade is how I  like to fight.
If you can get them to arm themselves with fruit, even sharp pieces, I will be there in the front line with you Garg.
 

so funny
That was one of the funniest post I've seen on this site. If Wittmann enlist he must wear a Victorian Era British Uniform.  smiley

This Battle is on the top of my list to visit. The Battle took more lives than all the previous wars the country had fought.

Thanks for the post.

And if you don't feel GREY is adequately descriptive.  Perhaps you could use the term GREASY? Tongue

I look forward to the day it goes all the way grey or white.

Among other things, I get the sense that once you lack pigmentation people don't find it as offensive if you have a longer or more wild beard. Just reminds people of Santa, wizards, deities, etc.
I've got a few grey hairs in the beard. Doesn't bother me. My famous slogan will be when I'm fully grey and have beautiful woman draped on me, "I don't always play military board games, but when I do I choose Axis & Allies."

Haven't changed - love it
Also love shaving a lot less

That's what I'm talking about!

But if we compare bearded men of history vs clean shaved men of history, bearded men win.

Thats because most of them are murderers or in prison...



someone has been placed on the naughty list

Perhaps the next debate can centre around Chest Hair?



Oh my, that was frightning.

I have facial hair currently, but I go between clean shaven phases and "close shaves" every few months. For the record, I haven't killed anyone, or committed a crime.  wink

GG

I have a clean record and I have a beard.  smiley

The painting is of the Bismarck giving birth to the nation of Germany in the Hall of Mirrors in Versailles Palace after France had been defeated.
