Saw this yesterday. I'd quibble with the America coming in and beating up an already beaten up Germany(I'd say Britain and France more specifically were also teetering - like the end of Rocky 2). Maybe that could've been re-written as America saved its drunk buddies and delivered the knockout blow to an already woosy Germany.

Still funny though.

The amount of death for British, French and German troops in the trenches was unbelievalbe. Ypres and Vendun were meat grinders. One of the worst wars for stupid carnage -running headlong into triangulated machine gun fire- and unbelievable shelling.

Just mind numbingly stupid.

Right, except there was no French King, just the King of England, Kaiser of Germany and Tsar of Russia. The three rulers were cousins.

I am sorry...I meant the King of Belgium

I believe the house is Coburg-Gotha...or Sax-Coburg-Gotha

In England I know they changed their house name to Windsor

Take one battlefield, Ypres Salient (also called Flanders Fields). Three battles over the same turf. First in 1914, French and British have 140,000 casualties; Germans have 134,000 casualties. Then in 1915, battle over the same turf again. French, Canadians, Brits and Belgians have 70,000 casualties, Germans have 35,000 casualties. Finally a third battle on the same turf in 1917 to settle it. French and Brits have 448,000 casualties, Germans 410,000 casualties. And that's over ONE stinking battlefield! USA lost 58,000 guys killed, 153,000 wounded in Vietnam over ten years!
