Very interesting article about why no photos seem to exist of American soldiers with "trench guns" in WWI battlefields.

Thanks for posting that link. Interesting article indeed. I thought it was interesting that the Germans were so worried about shotguns that they threatened to kill any American prisoner who had used them!

The Germans were angry because the U.S. Army wasn't following the rules. How German.

Apparently, lobbing around chemical weapons was fine and dandy, but shotguns? Those are barbaric!

I have read reports of shotguns being used in the Fallujah battles. I don't know how extensive this was. The Marines that were in Fallujah usually won't talk about it.
