      “A gun is a tool, Marian; no better or no worse than any other tool: an axe, a shovel or anything. A gun is as good or as bad as the man using it. Remember that.” - Shane

      WWII soldier with 1911 Colt pistol ~ Reminds of the 1st Lieutenant who was told before the imminent Normandy Invasion "If you survive this I'll make you a 2nd Lieutenant!!! His memoir is riveting. He survived Normandy, Huertgen Forest and breaching the Siegfried Line into Germany itself. He was on c-rations so long regular food made him sick. Medical had never dealt with anyone on c-rations from Normandy to fall of Berlin

    Enigma Machine - Enigma Machine During World War II, the Germans used the Enigma, a cipher machine, to develop nearly unbreakable codes for sending messages. The Enigma's settings offered 150,000,000,000,000,000,000 possible solutions, yet the Allies were eventually able to crack its code. By end of the war, 10 percent of all German Enigma communications were decoded at Bletchley Park, in England, on the world’s first electromagnetic computers.
