    My specialty is the battles of Moscow, Stalingrad and Kursk. Or anything else on the E. Front.

    I know everything, and nothing!

    Like several other posters, I am a repository of relatively useless information, on a wide variety of subjects. However, I claim mastery of none. If I was a master, I'd have my own forum! :wink:

    Indeed, this board is exceptional for learning, or if you want to see some rather fine (but pointless to most people) agruments.

    If I had to pick a specialty, the China-Burma-India theater would be it. I am also particular to the Soivet-Afghan War, US foreign policy, and Eastern religions.

    I'm knowledgable about bombers from WW1 to modern day. I'm particulary knowledgable about WW2 bombers, excluding light bombers.

    I spent years researching WWII aircraft performance characteristics (thanks in big part to the books of test pilot Erich Brown - "Wings of the Luftwaffe", and "Wings of the [British] Navy") and created performance data which I finally contacted Avalon Hill game company about, for their games "Air Force" and "Dauntless" as I wished to supply enough new aircraft specs for them to release a new expansion kit. This was years ago, but was still too late in the product's lifespan I guess as they were not interested. It was a lot of fun though.
    I also spent a lot of time researching the British Pacific Fleet & Eastern Fleet (Indian Ocean) operations. The BPF did a lot more for the Pacific war than most realize! i.e. support of the U.S. Marines at Okinawa.; here's some trivia - the last air combat of WWII was said be between Seafires and Zeros Aug 15 '45.
    Also I've studied WWII armor & aircraft enough to have fun proposing what designs I would have done during the war, i.e. my username! That's fun too.

    My dad was present during the Battle off Samar, a part of the Battle for Leyte Gulf, and the invasion of Okinawa, among others. I guess that because of that connection and the information that I have learned from him and the resource I have collected about those battles and beyond, I probably know a fair amount about the Pacific war.
