    If you are meaning the American army was composed of "men" then yes you are correct.

    No. I mean, that you and almost every US-kids just don't know what is real war is, and what is right and wrong on history photos. The multi-million army fighting on own territory will have about 5000-10000 of non-adult followers, just because army can supply them with food and clothes(uniform).

    void, please excuse my curiosity, but stories of WW2 were always a fascinating topic for me - did your grandfather later on participate in August storm? because I've heard that the men who took part in this operation were mostly picked from experienced units from German front.

    I think it is basically "home made". IIRC, it is Lebed's personal or something like that.
