Would that our actors today were so modest. I was unaware until watching this that David Niven got the Iron Cross in WWII.

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

Evan (Panzermeister 36) dropped a new video on YouTube. As always, it is great. Evan is a natural teacher. Give it a look.

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.

Evan walks you the corrections needed to this version of the Pz. IB.  It is worth your time.

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