For as long as I can remember I have been fascinated by military history, especially World War II. From early memories of drawing battle scenes on paper with airplanes, men, artillery, and tanks. Playing army with neighborhood friends, and building a German MP40 submachine gun out of lego blocks!
I sometimes wonder if my fascination with that time period is that my father was in the 3rd Marine Division (9th Regiment) and fought in many of the island battles in the Pacific Theater. He rarely talks about that period in his life and I think I wanted to know what it might have been like for him. I know I will never be able to understand fully the things he saw and did.
In my site I've tried to get the most accurate and complete information available to me.
I will be posting data as I find it. There is no bias to any particular country, it just happens to be the book I get the data from.
