My grandfather was an open book about his service. He loved his job, he delivered food to unit. A guy with large quantities of food surrounded by a hungry population, he loved the attention the women gave him.

His job was good until the front lines stabilized. He would then targeted by artillery bringing in supplies to his unit. He got targeted by mortars at Brest. And on the Westwall he was targeted by an 88mm.

I would give up a years salary for an hour with my grandfather, an infantrymen from the 2nd ID 1940-45. He past away in 1997 and I was too caught up in chasing women during the final years of his life.

The Japanese used phosphorus bombs against heavy bombers with mixed results. The Japanese also used fighters to ram heavy bombers.

I would try to avoid the Gona-Buna area of New Guinea, that battle was fought in the worst hell hole of infective disease. The casualties from malaria, jungle rot, and typhus outnumbered battle casualties 8 to 1. U.S and Australian forces had to knockout coconut pillboxs and gravel filled barrel reinforced trenches with air power and heavy artillery.

I would pick the Western Front 1944.

If you were forced to go into an active combat theater in WW2, which would it be? And which theater would you avoid?

Thanks for sharing this information, Wittmann. I think I've seen Manfred Rommel on German television a few times, but I was unaware that he had such a distinguished career of his own.
I share these thoughts, had little knowledge that he made such a career for himself.

On November 15, 1942 the damaged light cruiser Juneau was struck by a torpedo from I-26. The ship was hit near the magazine blowing up the ship. On board was five brothers who were all lost.

I enjoyed the read, some of the reviews were not kind, however I really enjoyed it. The story covers many years and mentions in some way six different Sith Lords.

I read the Star Wars Darth Plagueis Novel.

I feel 6 CVE would be better than 2 CV. But i assume the pilots would be good.

Japan had huge infantry divisions but deployment on islands is not good. They needed to end the Chinese meat grinder and free up those units to make a land grab.
I once read an comparison to the Japanese-Chinese War to the US's Vietnam War. Much like the US, the Japanese controlled important area and won standard engagements with the enemy. However both could not win the war under their current strategies. Japan went to war with the West with only 1/3 units available for war. The rest were fighting Chinese and on occupation duties. Some of very best units were protecting Manchuria against an Soviet Invasion.

I have read that a good many captured T-34 were used by the Germans. I have also read that there was talk in the some German high command circles to adopt the impressive mass produced friendly T-34 for the German Army. This was however quickly rejected because of ideological reasons.

Here is my question, how would the a German T-34 program have faired? How would a German technology equipped tank done in the War?

I wonder how the combination of the XXI boats and the G & T series homing torpedos would have worked against the North Atlantic Convoys?

Older model U-boats would have been used against softer targets, coastal convoys, and distant shipping routes had the XXI been in production early in the war.

Still very unfortunate there is no memorial in DC for WWI (the temple to DC veterans in the Mall is dwarfed by everything, it feels forgotten).
  Kansas City has the WWI museum. WWI has become the forgotten War.

How does late 1943 & 1944 Allied War effort get hampered if the German U-Boats continue to sink 500,000 to 800,000 tons of shipping per month?

I believe 700,000 tons per month was the Germans "magic number."
