"...Later turned out to be Adolf Hitler."

Who was he before that then?

Frodo: It's a pity Bilbo didn't kill him when he had the chance.   
Gandalf: Pity? It was pity that stayed Bilbo's hand. Many that live deserve death. Some that die deserve life. Can you give it to them, Frodo? Do not be too eager to deal out death in judgment. Even the very wise cannot see all ends. My heart tells me that Gollum has some part to play yet, for good or ill before this is over. The pity of Bilbo may rule the fate of many.

No, it's a disputed myth. It's one of those cool stories people love to believe, because it makes life appear a little less random.

Here's a random fact for WW2.

In 1941 Lord Mountbatten discovered that a very effective camouflage colour was actually a light pink. He developed the colour and it worked perfectly on ships at dusk and dawn but was too visible during midday, the army also refused to use the colour pink as they believed it would demoralise the troops.

It was mothballed, until the SAS found the idea and, being the SAS, didn't care what it looked like as long as it worked. They painted their land rovers (becoming known as a Pink Panther), weapons and clothes all in Mountbatten Pink and successfully carried out dawn and evening raids, throughout the war, on German air bases in Northern Africa with 4 man teams in single land rovers, all because of this unique camouflage.

1. The tank thing is a little off: the idea of disguising large, loud armored vehicles as water tanks is a little looney, and never happened. Early in the development of the "land battleship," the British government wanted a name that sounded boring, so no one would ask questions or look into it. So we get paperwork mentioning work on "tanks" which people assumed to be water tanks.

2. Not only is the Hitler story not true, his only wounds were chemical weapon burns, but the wording that he later turned out to be Hitler doesn't make sense, he was always Hitler. That's how you can spot bs stories like this: how did the soldier know he nearly killed Hitler if 1918 Hitler doesn't even look much like 1923 Hitler, much less 1933 Hitler?

3. Winston Churchill was at the height of his asshole phase when he was First Lord of the Admiralty, but none of his blunders in that office did any particular damage to the Navy, though they might have, so he gets a pass from me. In his defense, the Gallipoli operation was proposed as an alternative to an amphibious attack on the Pomeranian coast of Germany, which would have been a much bigger disaster, so we can blame him for not having a genius idea, but he still made things better.

4. Don't know anything about this Marines thing: no paragraph here (oh no).

WWI is my Jam

Do you guys know how Hitler got his mustache?

To be able to wear a gas mask, it had to be air tight. Most soldiers shaved their whole beards and mustaches, but Hitler only cut off the ends.

After the war, he liked the look, so he kept it.
