Using a technological innovation of 20mm cannons on his Bf 110, mounted near vertically like organ pipes enabled him to shoot Allied craft from below. The noise the cannons made sounded like Jazz drums to the German pilots and they nicknamed it Schraege Music. It w...

A lone rifleman strikes fear into the hearts of the 750,000 invading Russians.

    9:53 Yarnhub, why is it necessary to lie? On August 15, 1945 Japan SURRENDERED. That's not the same as a "cease fire", just as dying from terminal cancer is not the same as being murdered. Anyone who understands history knows this. Sakai's attack on the B-32s constituted a war crime and he was lucky to avoid prison or the hangman. Calling him a war hero is an insult to all real heroes.
