Untitled[edit]

By 101st Airborne Regiment, is not meant 101st Airborne Division? Probably. But if so, it makes no sense to say "Easy Company, 101st Airborne Division" as there are many Easy companies in a division - and even in a regiment, I think... Herostratus (talk) 06:05, 7 March 2008 (UTC)

Plagiarism?[edit]

"In May 1945, Talbert obtained one of Adolf Hitler's 'bulletproof' staff cars. He was ordered to turn it over to the brass, but he first conducted an experiment whether or not the windows were bulletproof.[5][6] He discovered that armor-piercing ammo could break the glass. Next, he drained the water from the radiator. Only then did he turn it over to Regimental Staff.[5][6]" Pretty sure this is exactly how the situation is described in the BoB book, I can't check this just yet but I'm almost certain there's a little bit of copying here.163.160.107.179 (talk) 16:55, 18 February 2013 (UTC)

Needs sources[edit]

Arguing about Talbert's postwar career via unnamed brothers and daughter on a forum does not seem to be sufficient RS for Wikipedia. Surely more can be found out about him, likely in an obituary or other material - books other than Ambrose's, perhaps. Other elements may be a matter of interpretation, but there should be documentation of university and work, marriage (wife's name? other children?) For that matter, what were his parents' and brothers' names? What was his birth order position in the family? Parkwells (talk) 21:03, 13 January 2014 (UTC)
