    A Japanese Garand ?!

    469712DC-4999-439A-A2FD-B57DC1C3C947.jpeg The main U.S. service rifle during World War II, the M1 Garand, earned notoriety not only from the nation that produced it and the soldiers that used it, but from those who faced it as well. The Japanese were no exception to this, as they tested and evaluated captured M1 rifles themselves during the war. They even went so far as to adapt John Garand’s design in the final two years of the war. This is the story of Japan’s attempt to make their own semi-automatic rifle, and how they tried to copy the M1 to give their infantry a more even footing against the superior U.S. forces they faced.......

                      The bombing of Dresden was a British-American aerial bombing attack on the city of Dresden, the capital of the German state of Saxony, during World War II.

                            We absolutely still are, but we can't let anyone see it, lest their collective panties get in a bunch. Think those guys in the sandbox were the first to take trophy photos and/or defile dead enemies? Think again
