    thats a tough question as all interest me. But right now I enjoy learning about the Battle of the Bulge- "Elsenborn Ridge" "Houffalize" etc, but also the Battle for La Fiere Bridge! my main interests have always been on the Eastern Front, so its nice to change it up for a bit!

    Nick- did you see the "greatest tank battles" show on the Kursk Salient? pretty neat!

    Hi,
    For me it is Stalingrad, and the Normandy battles but i also like older battles Not W.W.2 but English civil war and U.S, civil war, apart from stalingrad, the others are personal as we lost family in all three.

    The gates of hell were opened and we accepted the invitation to enter" 26/880 Lance Sgt, Edward Dyke. 26th Bn Northumberland Fusiliers , ( 3rd Tyneside Irish )

    1st July 1916

    Thought shall be the harder , heart the keener,
    Courage the greater as our strength faileth.
    Here lies our leader ,in the dust of his greatness.
    Who leaves him now , be damned forever.
    We who are old now shall not leave this Battle,
    But lie at his feet , in the dust with our leader
