That'll be phase 2 of the research, Hagen, but I'd like something more general first. I'll look into Badsey and I've ordered Max Hastings' book from my library. Thanks, gentlemen.
How about getting books on MacArthur and Mountbatten and just read the relevant chapters.
Stephen Badsey wrote a history of the war, simply titled "Korean War." It's a tall, skinny book, but you might get some help from it.
Simply, I'm researching a story I want to write set during the Korean war. It's a war I know very little about beyond the broad outlines. Can anyone recommend a good short history of the conflict? I'm particularly interested in the role...
In my opinion the Jagdpanther was the best of it's kind, just a shame that so relatively few were made. Germany should, from a tactical standpoint, have made far more StuG's, Jagdpanthers and Hetzers than all the other expensive and troublesome pr...
Carbines were used as late as as Vietnam by Special Forces personnel, so as longevity goes it ls the winner. Ron SF tried to supply the Vietnamese and Montagnard forces with M1 Garands, but the size, weight and recoil was too much...
Chesty was balls to the wall, but he truly cared about his men. He wouldn't piss their lives away. That's true. Chesty was a Marine's Marine. He was also my father's CO during the Korean War, and my father had the highest respect for him.

I came across this page, and I was always interested in any kind of war history, manily ww2.
This looks like a good place to discuss it
I guess that is about it.
Oh, I run a small website called www.BattleFieldScars.com (It has a ton of rare war photos, nothing much. Something I like to do on my free time.)
See you all out on the battlefield of posting!

Found this forum and it seems pretty cool so far.
I collect photos from both World Wars and enjoy sharing them with others while including details in an attempt at entertaining education. (In other words, I own a facebook page that I post photos on with details about where they came from, what they are, and anything else I feel like adding)
I am also an artist, and I enjoy drawing World War era scenes, though I haven't been doing so nearly as often lately.

What those things are - look like pulleys to me - on the rear engine deck of this Panther?
