Re: Manstein on wikipedia

Biter bit eh? Anyway I wonder why anyone bothers with Wiki. The mods are clearly chosen for their stupidity and the gold standard is a 'published' source. Arguing with the buffoons only makes them feel important. No matter how wild your claims are if you can find a book that agrees with you then it ...

Re: W-SS General on late war footage

The newsreels were extensively edited and you will find clips from June still being used as 'new' footage in August. The King Tiger sequence in the Youtube footage was (as said earlier) shown the week of 14th December 1944 (No. 745): http://img266.imageshack.us/img266/1343/kt503.jpg http://img190.im...

Re: Rommel and the logistics in North Africa

The idea of you educating me is really funny. Marc, given your sole aim is troll WW2 Forums under a mountain of aliases I agree the idea of you being 'educated' is really funny.

Re: Panzers in the Sand vol. 1/Berndt Hartmann

The photo reproduction in Volume 1 is terrible.
Even studio shots of famous Generals are badly rendered.

Re: WTB: Dugdale, Sept 44 volume

The reviews are mixed. He is famous for not sharing his sources but also for having information that no one else seems to have. I have seen an account of his house filled to the rafters with original documentation. It seems he (along with M Wood who now posts on ML) has got on the wrong side many of...
