When Men Were Men: Capt. Ronald Speirs, US Army

Captain Ron Speirs, US Army

 

In the morally bankrupt/no testsosterone/limp dick times we live in it is important to remind ourselves that once upon a time there were REAL Men that populated the ranks of our Military.

Captain Ronald Spiers is one of my personal favorites of the Band of Brothers Series.

The Foy Battle scene (Episode 7: The Breaking Point) is EPIC!

Mitchell WerBell

Know Your History.

Scattered Shots

By Kurt Allemeier

A veteran of the Office of Strategic Services, master of marketing, soldier of fortune, Mitchell WerBell was subterfuge and conspiracy personified. He is also the designer of the modern silencer with an early company called Sionics.

Mitchell WerBell was a “wheeler dealer” according to some government documents. He was a mercenary at one time and also ran a counter-terrorism training center, giving the world the Cobray.

WerBell served with the Office of Strategic Services in the China-Burma theatre in World War II before becoming an advertising executive. He decided to become a mercenary of another kind in the 1960s, designing silencers and working to topple foreign governments with involvement across the Caribbean, Southeast Asia, and Central America. Documents allege WerBell to have been in Dealey Plaza when President John F. Kennedy was assassinated and supposedly supplied silencers used by the gunmen in Dallas. That information didn’t come…

Know Your Weapons: The Mauser — 15 Assorted Facts And Tidbits

The Mauser — 15 Assorted Facts And Tidbits

 

One of the first Curio and Relic Guns I bought when I got my license many years back was a very nice K98 with an authentic leather sling and a bag of stripper clips.

Soon after that I obtained a Yugo Mauser.

To this day Mausers remain one of my favorite military bolt-actions to shoot, that 8mm is a BEAST of a round.

Foreign WWII Movies Worth A Damn Trifecta

City of Life and Death takes place in 1937, during the height of the Second Sino-Japanese War.

The Imperial Japanese Army has just captured the then-capital of the Republic of China, Nanjing. What followed was known as the Nanking Massacre, or the Rape of Nanking, a period of several weeks where over two-hundred thousand Chinese soldiers and civilians were killed and an estimated 20,000 chinese girls and women of all ages were raped.

Shot predominantly in Black and White with English Subtitles, this is an epic WW2 Movie that needed to be made to chronicle one of the worst wartime massacres of the 20th century.

Just when you thought you had seen all the worthwhile Foreign WW2 Movies, one pops up that surprises you.

This one comes out of Italy and chronicles the life of a young Italian infantry solider on the front in North Africa in 1942.

A poignant, thoughtful war movie that shows both the human and absurd side of war.

On the one hand, the Italian soldiers on the front lines were made to starve and die of thirst because the Italian High Command were sending boot polish and horses for the “triumphant entry into Alexandria” instead of sending bullets, water, medicine, replacements and rations to run Montgomery out of North Africa!

For all you fellow World War Two historians, here is a LIST of the weapons shown in the movie.

A harrowing tale of survival in Post World War Two Poland.

The story centers on Rose, a Masurian woman, whose husband, a German soldier, was killed in the war, leaving her alone on their farm. A single woman had no defense against Russian soldiers who raped as a form of revenge, nor against plundering Poles who found themselves in desperate straits. The law of the jungle had replaced the rule of law. Help arrives for Rose in the form of Tadeusz, a former officer in the Polish Home Army who survived the Warsaw uprising and is attempting to hide his identity.

This is a gritty, realistic story of how the Soviet’s raped and plundered all across Eastern Europe after World War Two.

Few historians will admit that this is exactly what Hitler was trying to stop in invading Russia in 1941.

You can watch Rose on Amazon Prime.
