    Hello

    Here's some WW2 era posters, just to remember what our grand-dads did 62 years ago.

    And let's never forget this one.

    (And let's not start one of those "who won the war" embroglios. The fact illustrated by this poster was that there was an appeal to armed US citzens to lend firearms to the British.)

    And the poster didn't say to send them UPS or FedX. They assumed you would box them up and send them by USPS (that was about the only way most people could ship something).
    Now, some of the politicos don't want us to have arms, let alone mail them somewhere.

    We were disarmed by liberal people,of most "cool" weapons and now they are still fighting,to disarm us of more weapons-now.

    Don't forget that our grand-moms did their part as well :)

    I particularly like the last poster in the first set... with the US, Soviet, and British (?) flags.

    I have always felt... through all the intervening years... that our people were never "enemies." It's those pesky governments that get in the way :neener:

    Exactly that.
    However, because of different cultural backgrounds and different brain-washing techniques employed by said governments, some people (i mean - populations of some countries) tend to be more or less aggressive, generally speaking

    I hope this thread runs a good while. my wife's a school teacher and tells me the kids reject even the smallest of sacrifices.

    I am truely awed by the resolve of that generation. I know there was a lot of dissent and angst, yet they were called up and they served.

    Watch the the whole Band of Brothers series sometimes and tell me you can imagine slugging through that. We owe them everything.

    Max, any way you could translate? I'd love to have an idea what they say, but since I'm your typical ugly American, the only foreign words I know all mean "beer."

    Also, if you have some high resolution images, I'd love to print some copies for one of the walls in my home theater - Bogie's Bunker.

    Fantastic thread. Thanks Max! It is good to remember the great sacrifices made on our behalf by fathers and grandfathers back then. Whenever I read about the battles in Russia the scale of forces involved, civilian and service personnel lives lost and injured, and infrastructure destroyed is staggering. Hard to even imagine conflict that intense, under such brutal conditions, and yet the Russian men kept coming to the front, often without a rifle of their own, just planning to pick one up from a fallen comrade. Such men!

    I wonder if we can get a library together of every country that fought.

    I have a Mosin and a Garand. Eventually, I'd like to have every battle rifle that whupped the Nazis.

    I think some of Oleg's show a strong influence of the old war posters.
