"Dunkirk ring a bell?"

Oh my...

Wow.

You've really given me something to think about, Scorch, with your "example" of Dunkirk.

Such as the fact that you apparently know nothing about the order of battle in France in 1940.

Tell you what.

Why don't you tell us why YOU think that Dunkirk is a tribute to the Mauser's superiority in that battle, and then, tomorrow, when I have a chance, I'll tell you A) how wrong you are, B) how little the German infantry figured in the battle that forced the British retreat to the Channel coast, and C) just how far away from Dunkirk most German infantry divisions were when Hitler called a general halt to the advance on the assurances by Goering that the Luftwaffe could destroy the Anglo-French positions.
