It's the totally low level SS knowledge of Charles Sydnor that drives me insane.
I was going to post a list of what I consider generally "must have" books that combine both history and militaria value data but being new am clueless where to post it.
I assume one be "PC for TV" and that's why authorities on various aspects of, for example, the SS and NOT on TV. Do not take this as inferring I know all, I do not and have more questions now then when I started serious original archive material research 30 years ago. My only areas (if I'm asked) that I do with some degree of competence are biographical research and formation/installation physical development.
I'd have people like George Nipe explain battles, etc. Instead it's the blithering idiots club. But one also must remember that TV,, at least in the US, is on the 12-14 years old mental level (actual statement).
And thanks for your comment on my books and for the other authors you purchase. Few grasp the time, cost, and effort involved that is a total negative regarding any financial gain. There isn't enough money on the earth to put myself through what I've done. Other motivators are required. With German Cross 7 and 8 with the publish, must remind myself that daily now. Volume 9 is a damn nightmare.
