That ISN"T what happened. It has been decisively PROVEN (I find there are
TWO articles proving such) that it was NOT faked. And I recall the contact
sheet as well in a book. And I seem to remember the pictures were not
inconsistent with the guy dying. In fact, I remember seeing pictures of
them jumping over ditches, crouching behind hills and such. It wasn't just
a bunch of guys standing around arm in arm mugging for the camera, though
that was there too.
