• BEYOND THE RHINE, by Donald R. Burgett is the autobiographical story of the last days of nazi Germany by a trooper in the 101st Airborne. He liberated concentration camps, and met unrepentant nazis. Some did not want to obey the occupation orders, until he pointed his .45 at them. One nazi thug looked down the barrel, said "big", and complied (and Col. Cooper says “told ya”). Another trooper captured a .25 caliber Thompson gun in a warehouse of guns from different countries and ages. The half-sized gun worked.

I think there is a table of minatures at SAR every year and they are works of art- do not recall the craftmans name. I must admit a character flaw in myself in that I don't spend much time looking since they don't "work"... Seems I have a hard time appreciating /desiring to own something that looks like a weapon that doesn't go bang.

Now a Tippman............................
