Military History Ping List (New)
Free Republic and Military/Historical References ^ | 16-Dec-05 | Self

Posted on 12/16/2005 8:59:06 AM PST by indcons

Some of us are looking for a specific ping list that discusses military history topics primarily. The focus of such a ping list would be on historical military commanders, wars, battles, strategies, tactics, and the like (as opposed to current military topics). At present, we have not been able to find such a list though there is quite a bit of intereest among FReepers.

If you would like to join the new "Military History" ping list, please reply to FReeper indcons.


TOPICS: History; Military/Veterans; Reference
KEYWORDS: armies; godsgravesglyphs; greatgenerals; milhist; militaryhistory; war; warandpeace

"Geez, were we forgotten so soon?"

Not really.....:) I sent y'all a couple of previous pings. In any case, if the Foxhole is still active and is open to covering global military history, we can have a combined list and I can give you the names of new pingees.

OTH, if you do not plan on covering topics like ALexander, Genghiz Khan, the Huns, and others, then we may continue using this list. I am open to ideas.

btw: if we are doing military history just read a new book out "shattered sword" story of battle of midway, although mostly from japanese side. incredibly well written, and the sections about the actual devastation aboard akagi, soryu, hiryu and kaga are mindblowing. the strategy part is pretty good too.

specially when your ealize the risks nimitz and spruance took while greatly outnumbered . and how good their military intel was.

wonder if we still have the same capabilities these days.

Hey, excellent for your first day. As you know, I merely inherited the ping list from a series of excellent pingmeisters and pingmeistresses. Is that a word? Anyway, it's pretty fun, and the best part is, Blam does most of the posting of the topics; I add perhaps one a week at the most, on average. The rest come from the other GGG managers, and from a couple handfuls of other FReepers, some of whom are GGG members, some not. :') Anyway, congratulations.
