    I have been wondering if it would be worthwhile if we all put up the areas of interest that we have in world war two so we have some idea at who to ask about relevant questions and also so we can see what the major areas of interest are.

    To get the ball rolling, my areas of interest in the war are;

    Airborne Forces
    Tanks
    Waffen SS
    Wittmann
    Normandy D-Day

    My collection of books is generally based on the above topics but spread wider than the above topics. I have a large amount of info on the Luftwaffe in relation to airborne troops. I also have a large amount of uniform references, particuarly for the Germans.

    and will be the future author of a multi volume work on the Mosquito Night fighter......eh Martin ? :D

    subs ? nah that is Herr Kaluens prime subject and Wolfpack. ;)

    for me it has to be late war missions of the Luftwaffe, day and night fighters/ pilots and a/c.
    Also I luv the history surrounding the S-booten arm, craft and crews.....and this is another area that is seriously lacking, especially late war. [​IMG]
