Re: Got to be kidding

Time to stop using the military as a laboratory for social experiments including this green crap. I don't care if it was done in the past for other issues. Time to train sailors to stand watches so the ship doesn't collide with other vessels & to have the ability to trouble shoot and fix the equipme...

I'm a USNI member and I have read the article and the author's book. I am not impressed by either.

Re: German machine guns

MG 42 was made up of stampings with much less machining & looser tolerances. It had a huge rate of fire. Both were very good!

Gary Staff has died

It was with great sadness that I learned that Gary Staff, one of the best authors of books on the WWI German Navy passed away in late July at the age of 63. His English language books, especially his work on German Battlecruisers were fantastic and his work gave access to readers information that wo...

Re: Political correctness gone mad?

The monuments should stay! Those who fought for the Confederacy were Americans before secession & if they survived, were Americans after the war. Lincoln, when asked what to do with the Southern leaders said to "let them up easy". He had the wisdom & foresight to see that nothing was to be gained by...

Re: Nazi items and other memorabilia

Paul, You have to be really careful when someone is selling "authentic" items. There is a whole industry in fake Nazi items & detecting them. As a reenactor I have seen authentic & repro items side by side and I can't pick real from fake. All I can say is do your homework and if there is a particula...

Re: Hitlers invasion of Russia

I think they could have taken Moscow if (big if) they stayed focused. I don't think it would ended the conflict.

Terrific topic & discussion. I can eat this with both hands. Does anyone know if there are any surviving photos of the German FC equipment? Thanks again!
