I got around a 1000 so mainly digging through the WW2 stuff

I am glad they have some use. If I find something specific to someones rebuild I send them to the guys if possible.

The interogation manual was 10.2 Mb so I could not post here so in summary to find out what your spouse got you for Christmas "you should build rapport with them, if that dont work ascertain their breaking point" :cool2:
