  • Topics Discussed in This Forum

    I would just like to remind everyone that WW1 is not the only topic that can be discussed in this forum. Any piece of history from 1900-1929 would be stuff that is eligible to be discussed in this forum!

    Something that I think would be good to discuss (though I confess to very little knowledge of it) is the Boxer Rebellion, in China, 1899-1900 (I think).

      I was just thinking about that. My knowledge is slim but I will see what I can dig up. If you want a movie about it that is fairly historically accurate try 55 Days in Peking.

          Someone mentioned the 15th infantry on the WW2 thread. The same reg. was in China for 20 years during this period.

                Is The Sand Pebbles from the same era?

                  The Sand Pebbles takes place in the 1920s or 1930s. I forget which.

                    I believe it's set in 1926.

                      Saw it, liked it, recommend it.

                      Other possibilities: Pershing's pursuit of Pancho Villa, US interventions in Latin America.

                        I like the movie, but was curious to read your comment about 'fairly' accurate. It is not even closely accurate i thought, especially from the Chinese point of view.

                        What interests me in the movie is how it seems to be a propaganda movie showing an internationa united nations force defeating the Chinese. The Japanese characters in the movie are portrayed in such a glowing light, considering when it was made, it shows the Japanese as the most capable of allies. Then theres the racist/cultural slurs of the day.

                          I'm under the impression that a sergeant York was a household name in America before ww2.
                          Exactly what did he do in ww1, or was it before in Cuba for example?

                            Maybe we should have a thread on him. Before I became moderator of the WW1 forum I didn't know who he was either. Not a very big name at all in Canada. Anyways, from what I've been told he captured something like 108 Germans singlehandedly.

                              I totally agree.
