Isn't Ahnuld Austrian, rather than German?
They are similar. Wasn't Conan supposed to be more brown skinned and less bulky according to the books?
Never read a Conan book, so don't know how he was described.
Regarding calling an Austrian, German, perhaps it's not all of the Austrians, but, I've known several Austrians, and every one that I've known has a really, really sensitive spot about being called German (IE: If you do it, duck, LOL)
