When I was about 12 my parents let me watch that amazing documentary series 'The World At War '
The images of death on the battlefields and in the concentration camps lived with me since. However even at that age I found it an essential viewing as it only happened 20 or so years before and I wanted to learn more about WW2. I have had an interest ever since.
Therefore I believe the younger members will not be traumatised by the images on this forum as they have a hunger to learn this history and that is why they are here.

Very true an excellent series, which watched every sunday when i was a boy, but the disturbing thing that gauls me nowadays is that i have asked dozens of young students about D-Day and what it meant, not one of them knew what the 6th of June 1944 was or how it affected them , i am amazed at the lack of 20th century history that is not being taught in the schools and colleges, but mention Vikings, Romans, and Robin Hood and theyll tell you everything about the dates and who were the main characters, i find that rather insulting and sad that these young people know so little about the tremendous suffering that happened in both world wars, and should be made to see these films as we were at school , it gave most of us a respect to all soldiers and civilians who gave their lives and for those left behind
Guys, lets keep things in perspective. The youth of today can access many gruesome images via the internet, mobile phones, email, television and think of the computer games that are available to them etc etc. I don't think that images such as those posted in this thread are likely to figure that highly.
The thread is showing us some images of warfare from an age gone by, there is death and suffering happening the world over right now as I type.
These images should serve to remind us that the items we collect come at a price. The thread is open to all to view here on the forum, for those that don't want to look then please don't.
Lets keep the thread open for what it is, images of fallen soldiers. If you feel the need to debate the rights or wrongs of a thread such as this please do it in private and use your own judgement as to whether you want to open the thread and view it.
