  1. That's #$%#ing cheap.
     
  2. ahah, are you serious
     
  3. Lewis machine guns are pretty cool.

    I think WWII fascinates me more because of how widespread it was. Though im kinda like Steven Segal, more interested in the technology and vessels used, aircraft carriers, v2, radar, etc.

  5. War, what is it good for?
     
  6. cellphones man
     
  7. The most fascinating and infuriating thing about WW1 is what happened in the last 5 hours. The armistice was signed at 6am, but it stated that the fighting wouldn't stop until 11am. Everyone thought they would just sit around and wait it out. The Germans knew it was over, they were relaxing for the first time in years. But not the Americans. The shitty commanders decided that it was their last chance for glory and promotion, so they sent thousands of men over the wall to try and take territory they would be able to walk into without firing a shot mere hours later.

    More Americans died in the last 5 hours of WW1 than on D-day. Following the war, congress decided that prosecuting these shitcocks who sent their men to slaughter for no reason and with no orders to do so would tarnish the reputation of the army, so nothing was done.

    To me, that kind of sums up the whole war. Totally irrational behavior, resulting in sending thousands to their deaths. They would send a company into attack. They would get wasted by machine guns. Then they would say, "Well shit, that didn't work, lets try again!" and send another company to their deaths.

    The most horrible war.
     
  8. yeah itd be better if Germany became the big world prescence
     
  9. COD5: World In Trenches

  12. roight

  14. more than any other, WWI seemed the pointless and the most hopeless. In a post-imperial world, it would seem a terrible generation to be a patriot..
     
  15. And play COD 1 and 2 again.
     
  16. yeah, just let Germany win.
     
  17.  
  18. it was Serbian patriotism's fault.
     
  19. Nah, it was those pesky Germans getting too big for their boots. They could've just stayed at home, but nooooooooooooooooo. They wanted all empirez and shit. <A BORDER="0" HREF="http://www.supercars.net/PitLane?displayFAQ=y"><IMG BORDER="0" SRC="pitlane/emoticons/angry.gif"></A>

  21. I'm really not sure that color adds anything to this footage. It actually seems awkward at points especially where the camera man got scared/excited and rolled the film to quickly.

    Oh, and 3:22 is one of the most famous pieces of war footage of all time.
     
  22. They have war in Germany? Over what, precision?
