    Default Russians raising the American flag on Iwo Jima

    Hope it's not too off topic, I just had to post this. I'm reading my daughter a children's book about American history. One page has the flag raising from Iwo Jima, but it's pretty obvious that the guy on the right is wearing an ssh40 and the guy on the left is wearing an M36 (without the comb). It's not just the shape of the helmets, either. In the original, the Marines are wearing camouflage covers, in the illustration there are no covers. U.S. Marine WWII uniforms were green, not brown.

    Yes, it's just a children's book, so I'm sure historical accuracy wasn't paramount, but they really drew two perfectly Russian helmets on those Marines.

    Ha, I didn't even think of that, if this was 1951 the illustrator would have been in big trouble.
