Note to Moderator: This is on-topic 'cause there's a picture of a TSMG on the homepage.

The text is superbly written (obviously, since it held my easily-distracted attention for so long), and punctuated with era-contemporary photos of those participants. Many are also depicted as they are today.
Check out the Band of Brothers pages. Extremely interesting, with photos showing the actors and the men they portrayed. There are also some interesting critiques of the series, which point out numerous innacuracies of people, places, ordnance and, of course, firearms (my own special pet peeve). (Like the Civil War movies where they use Trap Door Springfields.)
Interspersed in the site's myriad pages are also some great shots of these soldiers with TSMGs.
Thanks, Kyle, for the post: I really enjoyed this one!

|That is "Trigger time", Mark Bando's site. He is the author of "101st Airborne; The Screaming Eagles at Normandy", which I recommend to all.|
Also, I would like to add that the 1928 Thompson was used by the airborne. These movies always overlook that, but here is proof:
Note the cocked 28. There were far more 28's than the M1 and M1A1 class.
Nice site and thanks Kyle.

however it is well worth having it re-posted several times a year so everybody that comes here has a chance to see it.
i like the part about combat loads for the different weapons. since seeing that the first time, i have made it a point to never have less than 300rds of .45 at any time. the 1919 is a different story though......
