Here lately I've been on a WW2 History quest for knowledge. I really enjoy this era of world history. To me it was the last great war where nations fought nations with valor and honor. The tactics were brilliant on both sides, and the battles were simply awesome in comparison to today's battles. I think the troops and weapons were hardier and more rugged in those days because their jobs were to get in there and kick ass no matter what it took. My key interests in WW2 history are the weaponry used, and the battles that were fought, most notably in the European Theater. I enjoy collecting and shooting WW2 rifles and guns from both sides of the war, it's cool to think that the rifles that I own and have held in my hands could have very well seen combat somewhere. In addition I find myself watching countless specials on TV and Youtube about battles that took place and the tactics involved. I love WW2 movies such as Saving Private Ryan, Enemy at the Gates and ones from the Pacific war like Pearl Harbor and Flags of Our Fathers. I like seeing how these battles were fought and what happened during that time. The battles were simply brilliant and there were great commanders on both sides. Here lately I've been getting into model building and constructing battleships from that era and learning everything I can about them... you could spend a lifetime learning about this war. If you are a WW2 buff, what are your favorite aspects of the war?
