I just came across my first WWII in storage. Breakout was the title. The book was the story of the German Channel Dash.

What was your first WWII book to read?

Wild!

I just read recently about a B-52 that landed on a lake in Greenland, and was left there for 50/60 years... in 1995 they tried to restore it - got it up and running, and then it burned Sad

I watched a NOVA episode where a B-29 was restored during  two year timespan and it burned on its attempt to get airborne killing several people. Very sad.

Hated seeing the Heat win.

SA had two games to win it all. Would have loved to see the 2005 Spurs play this Heat team.
574  Other Forums / World War II History / Re: If you could take one WWII Weapon, back to WWI, what would it be? (1942 limit) on: June 19, 2013, 12:20:42 pm
I would be aiming for a German victory in WWI, the Allies had their chance and screwed up.

A German victory in WW1 would be ideal here, but I believe that you wouldn't need to bring and weapons back with you, just a history book, and point to the few mistakes Germany made and say, "ok, now don't do that, do this instead".

If I had to choose a weapon though, i'm kinda torn. On the one hand, bringing back the StuG III would be great to help the Germans break the dead lock without a doubt, but I wonder how well German industry could support them once they went into action, long enough to break the front? Maybe. On the other hand, if I were to bring back the MG42, I know that German industry could support and and keep these weapons running, meaning longer usage and a greater chance of this weapon tipping the balance for a German victory. 
Awesome points, the MG 42 would have shredded Allied ranks between the lines.

I invade Hawaii and send every ship i have for a final battle...while i have the maximum advantage. Keep raiding around the clock until that prep cook shoots down all my planes and sinks my entire fleet.


Those cooks are unstoppable behind an antiaircraft gun.

You are Admiral Nagumo. You decide on a third strike on Pearl Harbor. You have lost 29 planes and another 74 are damaged. What combination of D3A dive bombers, B5N Torpedo\ Level Bombers and A6M Zeros do you use in this attack?

Love the question!

I would be aiming for a German victory in WWI, the Allies had their chance and screwed up.

1000 Ju-87 would open the Western Front to Paris falling. I would try to get a few German Generals who were great WWI soldiers like Rommel and Paulus to win the ears of the current General Staff of using the Storm Troopers earlier in the war.

Well can SA win a game in Miami with everything on the line.

Dallas was in the same position a few years ago.

If you were a leader of an unnamed county in WWII and could choose one weapon system from each of the major participant countries to supply your armies, what weapons would you choose.

The countries are U.S, Germany, USSR, Great Britain, Japan, Italy.

Kirby Smith was another very capable Confederate General who could have countered Sherman. He however got isolate west of the Mississippi.

Forrest was a nature fighter, the South should have given this man more resources.

I hope Spurs win it all. Good win in game one. Most games should be close.
585  Other Forums / World War II History / German 15th Army Reinforces Battle in Normandy on: June 06, 2013, 12:25:55 pm
I believe the Allies lengthened the war by tricking the Germans with Patton's dummy army stationed in England. The German 15th Army was able to defeat the Allies in Market Garden and solidified the situation after the breakout into France. Had the 15th Army been sent to Normandy and been mauled by Allied  vast numbers and airpower little would have been in the way once the breakout occurred.

Your thoughts?
