    That was an amazing series of pictures.

    In one of em, there are a couple of Japanese kids in a US "concentration camp". They are in a store, looking at comics and on the shelves behind them, there are comics.

    I sent my friend the pic (who is a comic buff) and he said there are millions of dollars (value today) in that picture. But yet, they were nothing then :)

    Works for me!
    #4 is the only one familiar to me, and I like reading WW2 history books!
    #11 is the coolest!
    #13 as many as 2 million civilians died in this one `incident`? Horrors were comitted by everyone. The worst by the Nazis and Japan of course, but no country was without crimes against humanity.
    #18 American and England bombed the snot out of a French city, fyi.
    #32 Second coolest photo!
    #37 History lesson for us all.

    Hope you like! Lots of variety here!

    Part Of A Series each featuring a different event or time.
    Especially interesting are "Invasion of Poland and the Winter war" and also "The Internment of Japanese Americans"
    The picture of kids reading comics is #28 in that one.

    Now THAT`S how you do a war! None of this mamby-pamby can`t-have-any-casualties nonsense. Carpet bombing, that`s the trick, carpet bombing. :-D

    vv idk if @hosted is a spammer or not, her link is in Dutch with no photos in sight. She joined today...

    vv @Gerry1, what have carpets ever done to you? Why bomb them? Are you saying we should invade Persia because they make so many carpets there? Oy vey! ;-)

    5Cats- don`t be silly. `Persia`, like the Aztecs and Vikings, is gone & doesn`t exist anymore. I hear Iranians in the US calling themselves persians, but that`s just so they don`t have to say `iranian`. It`s like a mexican calling himself an `aztec`.

    ENIAC wasn`t the first general-purpose programmable computer. Colossus was. ENIAC was probably partially developed from Colossus, since computer technology was (a small) part of the price the UK paid to the USA for help in the war.

    You could argue that Babbage`s Analytical Engine was the first general-purpose programmable computer, but it was never built (although there is a project currently running to build one).
