I’m sorry, but tumblr isn’t letting me reply/post your message, so I have to do it this way.
I seriously typed up a huge reply to this, but accidentally clicked away from this page. I’ll try to reanswer it, though I doubt it’ll be as good as my original reply. =[
I love aviation history. This includes plane specs, dogfights, nose art, etc. I have a major love of B-17s. As a child, I would play dogfight simulation games on the computer religiously. I find it fascinating- machine vs machine with such skilled pilots in the cockpits. I love hearing stories about dogfights from pilots and have watched several documentaries about planes in WWII. I totally fangirl when I go to the Nat’l Naval Aviation Museum in Florida(something we HAVE to do when we vacation anywhere near there).
I love learning about war strategies and how technology and machines have influenced the battles won and lost. The Schlieffen Plan, DDay Invasion and the like are so interesting to learn about and there are a lot of information out there for people wanting to know details about these things(not limited to the two strategies listed there).
On top of that, there are a plethora of photographs and videos about WWII(not as many videos of WWI) which provide you with a lot of resources.
The Homefront was amazing during WWII. My grandfather and grandmother talk about it a lot with me, showing me their rations books leftover and talking about scrap metal drives. It’s amazing to learn about how an entire country put aside differences in order to help provide for the boys overseas, in hopes they’d return home.
Those are just the main reasons. If you have any more questions, don’t be a stranger!
And I apologize.
I couldn’t keep up with it because of my job and other circumstances.
I will, however, be doing a bigger version of it starting sometime soon in which a whole weekend will be dedicated to certain presidents.
