Re: The Climate Change agenda

So, you're more worried about the Red Menace that about the survival of the species? I see that a lot.

Yep, <3% of the scientists who actually work on this stuff agree with you, but that's enough, right?

I'd have rather seen one of the first "all big gun" ships saved. Dreadnought was the first launched, but not the first laid down. Jackie basically pulled a stunt to save Great Britain's mojo.

It was shot by a junior sailor apparently. Full history unknown at this time. I have a request in to the Navy Department Library for more info. Glenn will get back to me as time allows.

Re: Royal Navy HMS Ocean Replacement? LPH or LHD?

I spent three years on USS Peleliu LHA-5, and the advantages of the LHD over the LPH are clear, IMHO. The Peleliu could handle a modest invasion by herself. If needed she could have accompanied by any ship that could carry more troops and still get them to the beach. With the addition of a vessel li...

Re: Some resources for you.

Thank you again for the reply. I am posting to both justify, and to amend, my earlier statement. For one reason or another, I could not view anything beyond "The Pacific War" section of the website. I visited Hyperwar within moments of reading your initial post, using the hotlink you provided. I ha...

Re: Some resources for you.

Hyperwar, I find, is MUCH too US-centered for my taste. That makes no sense to me. There's a lot of German material at this site, so it doesn't suit my tastes...? There's tons of good stuff at Hyperwar etc. Is there any chance of moving from html toward pdf? Seeing the document itself is often help...

Re: Some resources for you.

Hyperwar, I find, is MUCH too US-centered for my taste. Thanks for the link, anyway! Cheers, Dan Well, that's what we have the most of here in the US. We are working on adding more non-US sources, I have about a dozen volumes of "History of the Second World War" in the queue and SAF and Indian forc...
