That is me as well. I am especially dangerous in the RAF Bomber Command's Main Offensive. I could also cause trouble with my knowledge of the early years of the North African Campaign.RichardS said:I know just enough military history to be dangerous and not enough to be an expert.
I chuckle every time I see your forum name, "Ranger BooBoo." It's from the Airborn Ranger cadence, yes? Love it!RangerBooBoo said:I would say that I would feel entirely comfortable teaching the American Civil War to High Schoolers and could hold my own in a college course. I really want to dig in to the Napoleonic period.
Jack's a good buddy of mine, we go huntin' every once in a while for wingnuts...Brad Ritter said:I don't know Jack, but I prefer WWII and the American Civil War.
Richard, you're being FAR too modest..........RichardS said:I know just enough military history to be dangerous and not enough to be an expert. I do like following military technology and esp. procurement trends in the modern era. I think I am fairly knowledgeable about WWII and the American Civil War. I also tend to specialize in individual battles rather than entire conflicts such as Jutland, Arnhem, Midway, etc. All that being said; I am willing to learn from anyone. :hush:
Actually it is a combination of the names of my two dachshunds. Sounds military though don't it. Hate to disappoint. :laugh:Richa333 said:I chuckle every time I see your forum name, "Ranger BooBoo." It's from the Airborn Ranger cadence, yes? Love it!
For m'self, I've dabbled in the American Civil War and the late Age of Sail British naval engagements; spent some serious time studying the Pacific Theater of WWII; and of course remain fascinated with Vietnam.
I have studied and continue to study in-depth the American wars & proxy-wars in Afganistan (both 1980's and current), Gulf War I & II, and v. Terror. I know just enough to know...I don't know enough! But it's fascinating, in a kind of horrid sort of way. And I have buddies getting shot at, so it's personal too...
You're far too modest.....you are the Panzermeister!tigersqn said:No secret here for me.
It's World War II; mainly the European battlefields with a working knowledge of the Pacific and Burma Theatres.
It always amazes me how much there is still to learn about this conflict.
If you like the pre-Revolutionary War era of North America you should see some of the posts HiredGoon has put up. I think you'll find quite a bit of info, he is very knowlegable.Rilie said:Though like many that have posted here I'm interested in all aspects of military history. I tend to focus on Pre-revolutionary war North America and the Native America wars throughout the continent.
I also study military leadership at all levels, which again leads me to reading books from a variety of wars.
