Hey there,
Just wondering if anyone here has a background in WW2 history, specificly naval history. Im currently doing a research assignment in my history class in which I have to gain evidence for three focusing questions. One of the criteria for gaining top marks is "showing initiuitive" which I hope to do by getting in contact with someone, hopefully through these forums who is qualified (would help i guess) and knows their stuff to help out with my assignment. All that would be required of you is to answer the 3 focusing questions as best you can which I will send anyone whos interested.

if you are willing and able to help PLEASE DO! so PM me and let me know thanks heaps! http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

No history degree here, but I do have a keen interest in WWII technological history. Plus, I have a few years in military service and degrees in Aeropace (BS) and Operations Research (MS). I've done extensive research simulating outcomes in warfare. If there is a quantitative side to your questions send them here.

I'm not a history major either but I know my WWII.

Did Hitler have a mustache? Yes.
Was Joseph Goebbels handsome? No.
Was Heinrich Himmler handsome? No.
Best looking German general? Heinz Guderian. The guy was Steve McQueen.
Best named German general? Erich von Manstein.

This is just the tip of the iceberg.

And.... there's always www.wikipedia.org (http://www.wikipedia.org)

A mine of info here..


..One of the criteria for gaining top marks is "showing initiuitive" which I hope to do by getting in contact with someone...

Be certain of one thing, A qualified teacher will easily determine if this is you own 'initiuitive' work or not. DO YOUR OWN RESEARCH/WORK, pointers by others on this forum, but in your own words..

Good luck http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/25.gif

Did Hitler have a mustache? no, only half of one
Was Joseph Goebbels handsome? No. Agreed
Was Heinrich Himmler handsome? No. Agreed
Best looking German general? Heinz Guderian. The guy was Steve McQueen. I'd also throw out Adolf Galland from the Luftwaffe, he was a regular Clark Gable.
Best named German general? Erich von Manstein...okay but Herman Hoth and Hans Von Luck got to run a close second...

We're having a real serious debate about history here http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/59.gif http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/winky.gif
