Some interesting pics in there. The one of Nazi troops in occupied France, wherein you can actually see the soldiers running across the field is crazy! Thanks.

I've been trying to reach that site since monday, but they have MAJOR bandwidth problems. Hopefully it will all calm down in a few days/weeks. I really like to see more of those pictures.
