I'm a bit behind the times, LOL I just finished "Band of Brothers". This was excellent! The whole series was well done. There was one scene in Episode 4 that reminded me of a story my dad told. He was a tank driver in WWII in Europe and he once told the story about when they drove into a town they liberated, the townspeople stoned a woman to death in the town square. They were ordered not to intervene. The woman was stoned to death because she was a Nazi Sympathizer who slept with the Germans when they had occupied the town.
He called the SHERMAN a 'TANK'?
Most reports I've ever heard from armored crews in WWII was, that they Called Shermans', RONSONS. Because they LIT FIRST TIME, EVERY TIME, when hit by German armor. The USA, bless their lil hearts, decided to make 20,000 cheaply built RONSON's, rather than ANY REAL tanks, to fight the Germans. The theory was, to sacrifice as many Ronsons as it took, to run all the fuel out of the German war machine. Sherman crews were EXPENDABLE!
And WHY were you surprised about the behavior of the local girl who was invaded? It's the same today around the world. Girls use what they have to survive. I once witnessed a ten-year-old boy, selling his sister for a candy bar and a pack of smokes.
