The really funny thing is that they actually thought (a) this might work, and (b) would seriously give them a tactical advantage. Presumably on the battlefield, they thought that those pesky Russkys would lay down their weapons and go to pick and arrange some flowers, or make a quiche, or run up some curtains……
