Hi everybody, 

Some details about Christopher Nolan's film. In the battle of Dunkirk the English troops were able to escape from the net by the sacrifice of the French troops. The German losses were heavy in order to penetrate Dunkirk. The story is rewritten it remains a testimony first. ?????☮?

I'm French alive and well in Paris.

Newbie checking in.  I grew up in a Navy family and have been interested in military history for as far back as I can remember.  My primary areas of interest are WW2, Korea and Viet Nam.  I hope to make a positive contribution to this forum.

Hello, I am a history buff who grew up absorbing brass bands & bagpipe music thanks to my fathers records. My Dad was Royal Engineers from 1935-48 or so, serving in Norway, Iraq, the middle East, Sicily & Anzio & my Grandad was Lancashire Fusiliers from 1905-1919 serving in India & the western front.

So with all that no surprise that I have an interest in the military. My own interest is the Victorian British military & I collect British Victorian military rifles (& shoot them).

This is Jim Rockford, at the tone leave your name and message, I'll get back to you. For yu young people, that sentence is from a 1970s television show called The Rockford Files.  And I just revealed the ball park my age is in.  Actually I'm Jerome but you can still leave me a message on here. I've been a military history buff since I could read, which has been awhile now.  I used to be a civil War reenactor, even though I'm from Canada.  Always been interested in that war, WWII, War of 1812, WWI, Vietnam...basically any war holds an interest for me. I've had some magazine articles published on...yep, that's right!...military history (mostly Canadian topics, but not entirely). I also had a blog on here a few months back on the wild deserters of WW1. Looking forward to talking with you on here! About whatever interesting topic. In military history, the supply is inexhaustible. Always a pleasure conversing with someone who shares the same interests. Good day and may the good news be yours (that's from another 70s television series).

Hello there,

From a family with a long military history; retired university lecturer who now writes adventure fiction. Indulge in lots of research into WW2, the period in which one of my series of books is set. (Don't go looking yet, still with publishers).

Thanks.

Hello everyone!  Wow, a brand new forum with a great variety of subjects.  This should be fun as well as enlightening.  My background is primarily aviation having been involved with aircraft maintenance for the better part of 38 years in one form or another.  Navair and Northwest Airlines mostly.

My favorite subjects include WWI and WW2 Aviation and here lately the American Revolution and but from the British point of view as well as its place in the overall global picture.  I have also started reading the "Kydd" series by Julian Stockwin.  Outstanding reading for anyone interested in life aboard the tall ships.

Other than that I'm just a curious sort who loves to read about anything historical.  (This may or may not have some bearing on why my daughter wants to be an Archaeologist.  Ha-Ha!!)

Anyway glad to be here with like minded folks.

Hello Black Prince!  I visited your turf back in 1981 when I was aboard the U.S.S. Eisenhower.  We made a port visit to Portsmouth for a few days in September.  And what was the first thing a good friend and I did in port?  Why toured the H.M.S.Victory of course.  Very impressive to say the least.  I only wish I knew as much about Portsmouth then as I do now.  So much more to see and experience.

Hello Bernie and welcome to the forum!

What a very special job it must have been, to work at the USS Arizona. A friend of mine who is the chairman of the WWII Foundation recently filmed the ceremony in which the ash of Ray Haerry, Sr., a USS Arizona survivor was returned to the ship. That had me in tears and I wasn't even there. 

A place I really want to visit one day.
