  •  Katyn.... (4+ / 0-)

    ...rather off topic, but I used to work with a former Polish tanker (Shermans...severely injured at Monte Casino), who was attending a military academy on 1st Semptember, 1940, when the Germans rolled in. Richard had a rifle pushed into his hands and was told 'That way!'. He was of the land-owning/nobility class and lost relatives at Katyn.
