the first link has a comma "," at the end, that's why it doesn't work http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

In May 1942, Nazi submarines sank two Mexican tankers, and Mexico declared war against the Axis powers. Thus forming the 201st Mexican Fighter Squadron equipped with the P-47D and sent to fight in the Pacific

Yup, I found this site a while back and found it very interesting.

But just a word of warning to those of the community from the former USSR who don't like communism (an acquaintance from the Ukraine pointed out a sizable objection to the content of the site), the webmaster's purpose is to try and help bring back communism to Russia, and promotes a more nostalgic look at Soviet history and values, etc.

But it does have some cool stuff like authentic recordings of military and political songs from the 30's, 40's and onwards.

whit ye looking at, ya big jessie?!?!
