Hey there!

My name is Joris and I'm one of the admins here on our new forum. 

I'm 39 years old and I have a vintage World War II Dodge WC 52 and have a massive interest in World War II. Having lived on the battlefields of Operation Market Garden most of my life that battle if is of prime interest to me.

Enjoy the forum!

Hello all...

I'm happy to be a part of War History Online. As the author of two books related to WWII ("American St. Nick-A True Story" www.americanstnick.com & "MERG" www.Merg-TheBook.com) this is the place to be. It's also worth noting that my first book, American St. Nick-A True Story was made into an Emmy-winning documentary film by the WWII Foundation. It airs nationally on PBS stations in the US throughout the Christmas holiday season. You can also download it from the WWII Foundation website. A link to their website is on the American St. Nick website listed above. Both my books tell TRUE stories and although this may sound like self promotion, I'm only letting you know that even through that war is long over, there are still stories and personal accounts waiting to be told by those still with us. One of the best ways to connect that "greatest generation" to this one is through the telling of those stories. I hope you agree.

Welcome to the forum Saheen! 

Your grandfather must have had some amazing stories to tell, or did he not talk about it at all?

Thank you admin,

Sadly my grandfather did pass away when I was at a young age, but He did tell my father who then passed the stories onto me!

Hi, I'm Paul from Australia, I have always had an interest in the history of war, particularly the mechanised equipment used, I am a moderator over on the "Binder Planet" forum, which is the largest International Harvester forum, we have a lot of ex military personnel as members and a dedicated forum for military IH products such as the trucks and M1 Grand rifles, I grew up hearing stories from my Grandmother about her family life in Nazi Germany, before and during WW2 and how they avoided the gas chambers etc, much to my father's disapproval as he wanted it hidden. I have always had an eye and memory for mechanical history, I currently repair road trains in the north west of the country and look forward to this board taking off, especially as I could not comment on the facebook posts.

Hello Saheen, your grandfather sure had a busy life in the army.

Hello MadMan, he didn't live an ordinary life that's for sure! My father tells me he enjoyed his participation *lol*
