    Here as ordered!

    Here is a little about me, I'm in my early teens and I love history. Especially WW2 and WW1. I've had an interest in these monumental and tragic events since I was quite young. I strengthened it by reading and playing games about it, now having a very insatiable interest in the subject. I won't say I'm on expert though I like to think I know a bit. My favourite theatre of war is in Europe, more accurately the Eastern Front. Sadly not a lot of people really know the brutality and the importance of that front, the losses. Being a Russian and grandson/great-grandson to those who lived and, for my great grandad died in the war.

    I also enjoy alternate history, especially in... well guess where? WW2! Which is why I like Harry Turtledove's books. I hope to create many different alternate history threads. So... a little about me.

    Thank you, though I'm going to have to take that with sceptisicm. Ending with a non-commital ... rarely means actual welcoming.

    First, I'll say welcome also. As for CAC, he's a standup dude and if he say's welcome, that's what he means. This is a very, new member friendly forum. Ask questions, debate, even hotly, provide your thoughts and share your knowledge, just remain respectful of others and avoid personal attacks and you'll have a long, educational, enjoyable time here.

    You just never know what little bit of knowledge you will pick up here. And I agree with you CAC. One cannot do much better than a compliment from USMCPrice.

    I've been around long enough to identify the stand up guys, you're another of that select group TD-Tommy.
