Aaaaaaaaaaahh
Current summer 2021 issue has a good article on Anzio. However, the page 27 map shows the Lehr Infantry Division which is actually the Lehr Infantry Regiment and the 16 SS Panzer Division which is the 16 SS Panzer Grenadier Division. Other than the map good reading.
My name is Chris Berman. I am a military historian (MA from Norwich University), a lecturer to military and civilian groups, a teacher (having taught at The University of North Florida), and an author. A White Star in a Red Sky is a work of historical fiction but is fully accurate on the Bell-P-39 Airacobra, the use of these aircraft by Russia in WWII, the Battle of Kursk, and women WAFS pilots and women Red Air Force fighter pilots in the Second World War. My book has garnered high praise from military historians, as well as a former U.S. Air Force fighter pilot. A White Star in a Red Sky is age-appropriate for young adults as well as adults. The book’s purpose is to educate, entertain, and inspire the next generation of pilots, both women, and men. Released through Fireship Press sometime in June 2021. Please look for it.
I am trying to get in touch with Flint Whitlock, is he still with WWII Quarterly magazine?
Hi, I have a question regarding Eric Niderost's August 2020 article, An Ace in a Day in WW II History. On page 61, Lt. Ted Crosby protested being assigned to a jeep carrier. Lt. James Bellows stepped in, and Ted wound up on the Bunker Hill, CV-17. I don't understand this. The Bunker Hill was also a jeep carrier, so what did Lt. Crosby gain from Lt. Bellows' intervention? Thanks for a great magazine! Fred Simonds [email protected]
A "Wisconsin farm boy", Richard B**g, Ace of aces flying the P-38 Lightning in the Pacific during WWII...
The Allied governments knew about Auschwitz and what was happening there, Auschwitz was within striking distance of the U.S. Fifteenth Air Force in Italy, bombing Auschwitz would not have diverted substantial resources from the war effort, and the gas chambers more than likely could have been destroyed with minimal casualties.
I am a first time reader of this fine magazine. I offer a fine book for your consideration "American Warrior" by Brig. Gen. John C. "Doc" Bahnsen who led the 11th Armored Cavalry "Blackhorse" Regiment in Vietnam. Doc lets his men speak throughout the book setting the scene for the action. This takes the reader into the terrible actions allowing them to appreciate the discipline and courage these men needed to answer their countries call to serve.
I must remember to post this on January 30th! Great Raid on Cabanatuan -- how many of you know about this from reading your history books? It was know as the most successful raid of WWII and I believe in US military history!
