    Excellent items to research, Cobra. If you want/need any assistance with Ieyasu, let me know. Ancient and medieval oriental history and folklore is one of my specialties.
    I found that Sadler's "maker of Modern Japan" has been of immense help, though a haven't found a resource that describes Ieyasu's battlefield behavior. Do you know of any resources that describe his activities in battle?
    Did he just sit in the chair and issue orders or was he riding around micromanaging (this probably would have been too dangerous). I know he didn't and couldn't lead from the front. Sadler says he was never wounded once in a battle, though he did have to make a run for it a couple of times.

          I envy Canadian's, because at least on the web, your museum's for the ww's are the best IMHO, ok the RAF page's are pretty good.

          But I'm astounded that there isnt a proper US army history, page on the net!

          Just compare that to the Canadian war museum's page, which is much better than the Brit war museum, or the understandably not so rich Finnish one's (Although some good stuff especially about the Winter war is available if you google away, private ventures mostly).

          Yep, I have heard that the Canadian Culture (Which includes Museums) scene is pretty damn good.

          And, you guy's were in the great battle's of WW1 & 2, (Well, as much as the manpower allowed)

          I saw this picture of somewhere in Canada, and they had a Lancaster, outdoors on a great stand, like a huge plastic kit! In front of a building!

          How cool I thought. It was an art object, and a historical memo, and most importantly, nobody who saw it there for the first time could not pass it without a thought of somekind!

          Great! I wish they would put up a spitfire and a Me 109 in front of Victoria Station in London!


          And thankyou for the great sites on the final victor of the sengoku jidai!

            My project is to create a centralized resource for all Canadian units and formations (primarily of the combat arms) in WW2. Haven't yet decided whether it should be electronic (internet) or paper (published).
