  • Your recent research projects?

    So what recent research projects is everyone working on?

    For me, the geopolitcal effects of the Versailes Peace Conference.

    I'm just trying to find the time to work on it!

    I have had two articles published in the past 6 months:

    1. Byzantine Forms of Address, and

    2. Early Hungarian Titles (prior to 1000AD)

      I'm trying to find more information on Generals Hermann Francois and Paul Hausser. Neither has a biography in English and while both commander are well known, most of the information on the two is repetitious.
      If you can't set a good example, be a glaring warning.

        I can't believe there's not an English-language bio of Hausser (never heard of the other guy), but I can't find one either. That really seems odd.

          I know. I also was surprised. Maybe I need to brush up on my German.

          Francois is a German WW1 commander and, IMO, the hero of Tannenburg.

            FS,

            Your posting reminded me that I have been able to secure the master's thesis on Francois on interlibrary loan for a $10 loan fee from East Michigan U. I will be able to pick it up Monday. I'll look it over and send you a PM.

            I'm researching and writing an article on Nelson at Trafalgar. Currently, translating/reading 11th PzD and XLVIII PzK daily journals and telephone logs for Balck's actions in the Chir River battle against the 5th Mech Corps--possible article.

            I hate the publishers' fiscal exploitation of authors for non-fiction books, so I'm weighing if I can easily throw together a book on the tank battles of Barbarossa or an operational history of Katyusha rocket units during the war.

                  I suggest Storm of Steel: The Development of Armor Doctrine in Germany and the Soviet Union, 1919-1939 by Mary R. Habeck ISBN 0-8014-4074-2

                  Very good book with a wealth of information, from both German and Soviet archives, concerning doctrine and technology development.

                    What!? You mean you are writing articles on Byzantine Forms of Address and Early Hungarian Titles as well? I thought I was being original!

                    Just kidding, Janos. Impressive. You don't go to Wikipedia for that kind of stuff.

                      I'm working on my BA in International Relations. It combines IR theory with military analysis in a comparative study of several regions. Given the amount of work I put in it, it will also form the basis of my entry paper for the Masters degree program this autumn.

                        Thanks F4U...I have written a number of similar articles and chapters on Toponymy and Onomastics. I'm working on a multi-part article now on Mongolian given names in the medieval era that will be published later this year -- it's a follow-up to one I wrote about 25 years ago (actually, the earlier one was a chapter for a book I contributed three chapters for: medieval Hungarian names, medieval Mongolian names, and a summary of Eastern European history). I've also been published on medieval German names in the Babenhausen (Hessen) area.

                        If you're going to have a hobby, it should be unique!

                          And what about the editors? The publisher's hungry dogs...

                          Now I'm writing a book about WWII italian military occupation of Balkans. But I haven't so much time, cause my editing jobs, and I don't know when I will be able to accomplish the "mission".

                            I've pointed out errors in the textbook on history my college uses that the publisher has offered to publish a correct book IF I will write one...so...getting the time to do the research and writing is the problem.

                              I have a USB drive that is filled with half-researched and partially written articles on climate science.

                              I have no idea how some people can maintain full time careers, families, homes and write books...
