    Today 520 years ago in 1499 the Swiss Confederacy decided to kill all POW in their battles with the Swabian League.

    Thanks,
    I just love history, not only WW1 history. It helps me to "time Travel" until real clever people find a way to really do it.
    Knowing your history, it might help to survive in say 1500 or even 1500 bc:lol:
