Allied war crimes FAQs

Postby David Thompson on 26 Jun 2004 01:27

I have started to put together this thread index to help readers and researchers in this section of the forum, and to try and keep the number of duplicate threads on the same topic from increasing. This is a work in progress, and is nowhere near complete. I will try to update it when I have the chance. If one of these topics interests you, please revive the old thread by posting on it, rather than start a new thread.

This is what I have compiled so far on allied war crimes:
