Just finished this book on Operation Ironclad.  One of the lesser known campaigns of WWII.  I’ve always had an interest.  Hope to build some models from the campaign.

Over the last few years I’ve found myself more and more interested in WWI.  I think it may be all those cool armored cars getting released.  If you have an interest in WWI, I can highly recommend this YouTuber series.

Pour one out for a true patriot. A man’s man. The word hero applies in this case. Story here.

If you don’t follow Dave Burge on Twitter, you are missing a treat. (@iowahawkblog)  His #DavesCarIDService threads are a treat.  He is also a polymath who ends up telling you tons’ of stuff you didn’t know.  He also has a Substack where he goes on about old cars.  This is a fantastic thread about “1942” model cars and the uses the car plants were put to.  Read and enjoy.

I love WWII history.  Another story I didn’t know.  Also, I have a kit of this aircraft.

This particular raid is of great interest to me.  I’d like to visit Norway to see the place and walk the ground..

There is no way we could do this today.  What have we lost and how do we get it back?

There is always another WWII story I’d never heard about.
