    The Germans typically treated American POWs well (that term being relative), especially in the Stalags run by the Luftwaffe. However, if a US soldier happened to be Jewish or Black, that was a quite different story.

    The Japanese reasoning for mistreating POWs as explained to me by a Japanese officer of the WW II era is something like this:

    The only thing that separates men from animals is a sense of honor. When one surrenders, one gives up his honor. Therefore, one ceases to be a man and is no better than an animal.

    They'd have been really screwed if we felt the same way....

    I picked up a Shotgun News the other day - seems the repro Nazi items are still popular, from helmets to repro STGs.

    (it's alive!)

    And so is this freakin' thread. It may take a stake through the heart.

    No, you have to cut off the head and burn it.
