People think WW2 was all mechanized. Not so. The films we see of the invading forces were propaganda. If you can find a copy or Solidat, written by an officer who was with Rommel in Africa, France and Russia it provides an interesting look at daily life from training through warfare and from prison to civilian life. One fascinating segment of the book was when in a prisoner of war camp in rural Soviet Union, the prisoners would be taken out to work, often cutting trees for lumber. Some of them would take scrapes of wood to make toys with to sell to the guards. Once he and another wandered over a hill into a remote valley where they traded for some fresh eggs. The old couple they met (they were fluent in Russian by then) asked them how was the Czar, was he in good health.

Mounted warfare is an interest of mine (i collect australian light horse equip.), go to youtube and scout around for polish cavalry, some fantastic horsemanship from the 20th century.

Stage area.

Building by the main gate in and out. I would say it got pretty high. That's a dead deer.

What a fiasco, weather-wise! I feel for the unfortunate folks who are putting up with heat and flooding conditions.

Take care,
Steve

Was going to go but just did not want to hit that heat. Glad it did not turn out to be the Isacc mess for the rally.
