  1. Whoa! Where is everyone? Am I…first?

    Anyway, all that dramatic hand-hand stuff makes for good art but almost never happened. Same with most of the other battle scenes — everything and everyone is far too close together, which I suppose you have to have to make art “work” but doesn’t happen often in real life. In most cases you can barely see the people you’re shooting at.

    • Why aren’t you out organizing us dispirited workers? And down here in the great State of Taxus there was no mention of V.E. Day but plenty of jawing about OBL. Oh well..

  2. I just love how Russians and Germans agreed to have pillow fig… I mean, bayonet charge like they never heard of concept of machine guns and taking cover…

  3. The headlines of the day: “We have beaten the crude muzhiks 3:2” and “Dirty tricker Artyukhin´s foul unpunished” 😉

    • Yes, this is true but you get use to it after awhile. Also, I was using a BlackBerry instead of iPod touch.

  4. Great post though stylized like all art there most certainly was at times very close very brutal and at times hand to hand fighting in WWII it was not common but it did happen.
