troops who would get executed when captured by their enemy

War is brutal. It makes people do harsh things. Then, it makes the other side retaliate against those harsh things. But war is also a fight with rules and when sides don’t play by those rules, tempers flare, emotions run high, and that’s when the sh*t really starts to fly.

Now, the third Geneva Convention governs the treatment of POWs. No POW can be tried for fighting in war, though they can be tried for war crimes — but they certainly aren’t supposed to be executed immediately. Unfortunately, not everyone follows the laws of armed conflict like they should.

The following 7 troops would be executed immediately after capture.

All know info. Also, "blake stilwell," needs to do his research and make sure its correct. The "trench Broom" was not a Shotgun-it was the Thompson .45. :rofl: :rofl: :rofl:

That's still incorrect. A "trench broom" can also be a browning automatic rifle aka a B.A.R. :salute: I want a semi-well. :whiteflag: :salute:

The shotgun is mistakenly given that title by someone who doesnt know their weaponry. :D :D :D
