    Definitely a side of the story not often heard. I'm sure many of us here in the U.S. would like to think that all of our men went to fight against oppression and evil, but I guess that is not always the case. The book seems like an interesting read.

    I'm sure it happened but the numbers must have been tiny compared to the Russian rapes in eastern Europe and Germany, but no matter how few it shouldn't have happened!...

    As always, be aware the thread is being monitored and any controversial comments will be deleted and the thread closed.

    Read the article but unless you have anything sensible to say, don't bother replying.

    Do not turn it into another 'whose side was the worst' type discussion with finger pointing and idiotic comments blaming the other side for the worst war crimes etc.

    For the time being let it continue.......

    Armies are comprised of all segments of a nation's society...that includes the bad ones as well...Although I recall that many newly liberated women were quite willing to trade their favors for HersheyBars, Nylons, LuckyStrikes, etc...
