Also I apologize in advance if this question is in the wrong place, this is my first question and I found it slightly difficult navigating the forums.

Greeting all. I stumbled on to this forum when I was looking for photos of the Sd.Kfz-123L Luchs. Am building a 1/35th scale kit of one and was looking for reference. Found several photos I've not seen before. Thanks for having me on board.

Hi everyone, I'm new here. I'm interested in the history of wartime Okinawa. A couple of years ago I travelled to Hateruma Island (of Ishigaki, Okinawa) and found a not well-known story about local Ryukyuan children being deliberately put to death by Japanese ultranationalists as a precaution for the imminent Okinawan Campaign, or Operation Iceberg. That story leads me into a personal quest of more stories of wartime Okinawa; of civilians and of soldiers as well.
The following list is the material I've read, but the list is limited to English material only and first-hand material written/published in Japanese are not listed. I hope I can learn more from this community.
