I have been reading on Charles XII of Sweden. What an awesome military mind. Shame that he died at such a young age and such a gruesome way.

Found this quote of his, " I have resolved never to start an unjust war, but never end a legitimate one except by defeating my enemies."

Which Market Garden division is your favorite and why? You can choose two.

The German 712th represents the entire German LXXXVIII Corps, which wad stationed in Holland before D-Day. I attempted to pin down which of these occupation divisions were in the thick of these battles. The 712th continued to come up.

Good question again Worsham. Unfortunately, I am deep into your Civil War at the moment(Spotslyvania), so will not research WW2 for a while.

I found the subject of the Bloody Angle a grim situation, the most intense hand to hand combat in the War Between The States.

I believe invasion with what the Germans had, a few destroyers and a fleet of barges would have been suicidal. The Royal Navy, with heavy losses, would have destroyed an invasion fleet.

If you were leading German military operations after the fall of France how would you tackle the  problem of defeating England?

My plan would be to use the Luftwaffe to close the North Sea and Channel to English convoys. Close the Thames River by bombing and heavy mining. Force the RAF to fight over convoys instead of friendly territory.

Bomb the western English ports.

Third priority would be to attack railroads, airfields and industrial areas.

What's your thoughts?

The flood waters drowned a decent amount of livestock, but no lasting war winning effects. Great story.

Another old poll worthy of discussion.

I vote for Julius Caesar.

Worsham: I noticed it was today in 1920 that Polish troops under General Rydz-Smigly held a victory parade up the main road in Kiev, celebrating their 7th May capture of the city.
Their tenure of Kiev only lasted a few weeks.
After studying this conflict, you can get a better understanding of the Soviet willingness to divide Poland with Germany.

The danger I see with such technology is that once governments get this capability they will never relinquished this power. When taking a life takes as little effort and thought as using a joy stick and pushing a button human life suddenly becomes easier to take.

I love my Country, I just don't trust people in power.

Brad Meltzer's show Decoded on the History Channel had an episode devoted to this topic. Its a good episode, if any of you get a chance watch it.
