    In this amazing true story:

    http://www.thedailybeast.com/articl...en-americans-and-germans-fought-together.html

    Cliff Notes:

    This battle happened about 5 days after Hitler killed himself.
    The Nazi's had a bunch of kidnapped dignitaries holed up in a medieval castle in Austria, the castle was protected by some standard German army soldiers.
    The American army shows up to liberate the castle and the German soldiers surrender without a fight (because they know Hitler is dead and the war is essentially over).
    The German SS shows up in force to kill everyone at the castle.
    The Americans are forced to arm the prisoners and accept any help they can get.
    German regular army soldiers say "fuck the SS" and they join with the Americans.

    I think they're making a movie about this, or at least they were trying to.

    Mel Gibson to direct.:icon_twis

    Christoph Waltz has to play one of the lead German roles, either Wehrmacht or SS. If Waltz playes the Good German, I want Mads Mikkleson to play the SS officer. :cool:

    Eve Green to play one of the French politician's mistresses who fought alongside the men.

    So US solders teamed up with Nazi Germans to fight against even more Nazish Germans.

    I was hoping it was going to be non Nazi german soldiers + americans versus some soviets.

    Good read. Usually not interested in war stories but this was very interesting.

    lol, what cartoon supervillains the SS were. WTF is the point of showing up to kill everybody when the war is functionally over?

    This will definitely be made into a Hollywood movie.
