Unknown Object[edit]

In some of the film in this series German soldiers often carry an about 7 inch diameter, 18 inch long cylinder. Could someone identify this object and describe its' purpose? Thanks! Please post your answer here. Chad brackmann 00:40, 22 February 2007 (UTC)

No, that's not it. The head of the panzerfaust is cone shaped and it has a long thin straight handle (maybe 3 feet or a little less and maybe 2 inch in diameter). I'm talking about a metal box with a lid on it. It is a pure cylinder of the dimensions I typed above. Running parallel to the axis of the cylinder, the wall of the cylinder side had groves (probably corrigation for strength). It was worn on the lower back with a shoulder strap and it was used to store something, perhaps food, personal effects or medical supplies, I guess. The panzerfaust was usually carried on top of the shoulder.
I am still looking for the answer to exactly what this was and what was carried inside. Chad brackmann 23:37, 4 April 2007 (UTC)


* Chad, this was a German GAS MASK CANISTER...M1930 (M30) or M1938 (M38).

Series 4?[edit]

The article currently has two sections for season 4. One is DVD the other VHS release. However, they have different titles. Are the episodes found in the VHS season 4 released on DVD under different names? The article is not very clear about this, but I suspect it might be the case. --Trippz (talk) 16:11, 21 October 2008 (UTC)

comment moved from main page[edit]

I regard this as an exceptional documentary series. I recall watching the first season on PBS and recently was fortunate enough to purchase it at a second-hand store.

The only technical critique I can make regards the battle of Midway. Apparently an editor did not understand the difference between millimeter and caliber (calibre), and in the subtitles discussing equipment stated that several US planes were armed with .5 mm guns. (.50 caliber (stated as "fifty caliber") would have been correct). There is a substantial difference between half of a millimeter and half of an inch! --Buzdavis (talk) 00:32, 22 August 2009 (UTC)
