Sorry Ruud, I totally agree with you about LL. The wire I mention was used for battlefield communications so you could say that just about every order that given [not by radio] was done with the aid of LL. While not a glamorous it was a critical component of Soviet C&C .
The felt boots helped move Soviets grunts through snow in the late 42 early 43 operations.
Boots, communication wire and transport, the big three .

BTW the Lee was critical for a short time in North Africa IIRC .

Why would the clowns not let people into the tent? What's the point of the show if they don't? .
