Happy Easter, “Adolph”!

The two gents in the photo below, identified as “T/5 William E. Thomas and Pfc. Joseph Jackson” may not have spelled Hitler’s first name correctly (it’s Adolf), but that doesn’t mar the beauty of this photo:

Love this photo.

Joey, if you’re into wartime photography, I have a coffee table book titled “The War” by Ken Burns. I’d be happy to lend it to you.

Also, if I remember correctly, one of Hitler’s Division’s was named the Adolph Hitler Division. I could be wrong about the spelling though. 😉

Actually it’s the older English way of spelling his name. Adolf is the German way of spelling it.

At least, as far as I know.
