A World War II messageboard

http://www.world-war-2.info/forum and the main site at http://www.world-war-2.info

It needs members, there are only about 10 active members so it can get quiet. I am, with a few others a moderator, so all advertisements will be removed ASAP.

Well, not really. I have the war game 'Operation Overlord' but I have one lousy diorama, a few paints and only the basics. They are just sitting on my pool table (where I place the battle) just sitting there and with nobody to play with, it is really kinda useless spending £49.99 on something i'll b...

Yes! I have not read it but this seems to be a revolutionary style of writing. I am sick of seeing the american side of the conflict where the 'limeys and fritzes' get left out. Also, what is different seems to be that you are writing from two sides of opinion. What the field marshal says may be bog...
