Inspired by French Napoleonic sabers?
Patton may have been inspired by French sabers, but the US 1913 saber bears a striking resemblance to the British 1912 pattern. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 220.127.116.11 (talk) 22:52, 17 December 2013 (UTC)
KJ Parker as source
Why on earth is KJ Parker --- a pseudonymous author of fantasy fiction, not a historian or recognized expert --- cited? His (?) claims in the cited article are demonstrably incorrect with regard to such easily checked matters as the Mauserwerke suit against the US government over patent infrignements, and the Polish use of sabers against German tanks in 1939, so why are his claims about swords given any weight?
