I know, I know, I’ve been negligent about updating the website. Other projects have been keeping me busy, preventing the kind of serendipity moment where I think “hey, I should do a post about this.” But as of today, I’m current.

I became hooked on the war and military history generally because of Mr. Hastings, my 10th grade history teacher. He was a tremendous lecturer and brought the era and the war to life.
