I had a feeling that's what it was. My copy of the Iliad actually has this picture as its cover, that's when I first noticed it looked funny.

Well, I suppose it was used to convey a sense of emotion that would have impacted the Iliad's original Greek listeners, since an illustration of a bunch of half-naked Danaans running around wouldn't do the trick today. The Iliad was considered one of the most important parts of Hellenic identity and history, much in the same way that the past struggles of WWII are an important part of our own.

Ya, that does make sense, but the title would have to be really prominent so it wasn't confused with a WWII book, but then, maybe they were ok with that cuz that means more people picking it up and considering it...

The title is dark red and in large font, I'm sure no one got bamboozled.

They also used condoms to cover the rifles muzzle. They had to be ready to start firing as soon as they hit the beach. You didn't want water, debris, sand, etc. in the barrel when you pulled the trigger.

Yes! Plastic gun in bag best d-day idea. All they needed was everything else to have gone to plan.

Then think of the Normandy landing like a game of Russian Roulette; except instead of a revolver missing 5 bullets, its a belt gun missing one bullet *unsagelike smirking*

That's a good reference. However, no. I'm referring to those kids. They did a good job catching the Nile crocodile. Count.
