Someone posted "... never leave a man behind." An amazing photo, I would like to know the details. Cannot believe it isn't famous, ... or is it? howiespeaks.com

Looks like a real photo, but it's just dolls . Mark Hogancamp has created a fictional universe Marwencol. Marwencol is the name of the town that is the setting for a story populated by World War II soldiers, Nazis and Barbies.

B17 (My Uncle was an engineer on one of these planes. Shot down. hid, POW,  freed -camp saved-sent to a "butterball" US hospital camp to recover from near starvation. {butterball may be a term our family used??} He made it home! I am getting correct info. and will repin then. He lived into his early 90's. NEVER used derogatory terms about the then enemy. A real gentleman. More asap  K)
