Ah, Officers would be commissioned, not conscripted and the question is about conscripted men.

comment What is the basis of Russian criticism of Antony Beevor's work?
Anixx: Your examples are all from Berlin and dealing with rape: Are his sources more reliable in Stalingrad or when dealing with the more military sections of the book?

@choster I vote that you give Alaska to Canada, then we can just call them Norther Native Canadians with no confusion or bias.

@SevenSidedDie Huh, interesting. Do you have a cite for that? I'd like to read about it, because I was always told Eskimo meant "People who talked with forked tougns" or somesuch. Last time I heard Eskimo used in Canada was in kindergarten.

Just a note; Eskimo is a rather racist term. The correct term is Inuit. It would probably be a good idea to correct this.

comment Is there any proof that Robin Hood existed?
Also; At least one of these Robin Hoods was a horse thief, and another a rapist. CBC Radio did a show on various versions of Robin Hood and historical fact. Probably on the show Ideas.
