    A paper that I did on Fort Bascom, NM (1863-1870) in my Military History class is going to be published as part of a book...just one small part of the book...but it will be my first published work, so I'm kind of excited about it. Here is a link to the pre-sale site on Amazon talking about the book.

      By "Eastern Offensive", I assume you mean Easter Offensive (Nguyen Hue)?

      Two must read books are...

      The events of the first few days are not well documented. Everyone was too busy trying to stay alive or in supporting those few Marines and Soldiers who were on the ground. Don't believe everything you read. Much information is in error and has been requoted in error over the last 38 years.

      I'm still researching the events of 30Mar-5Apr72 when my ship was in direct support of the northernmost firebases and Dong Ha. In that AO, members of USMC 1st Anglico Sub Unit One will provide the best information. I have a list (incomplete) of many USMC and US Army personnel and am adding to that list every day. I'll certainly share any info I have with you.

        Just finished an essay on the Second International and other peace movements. My supervisor liked it. Also a dissertation on a travelling Catholic priest in 1870s New Zealand.

        Next project is New Zealand involvement in the Russian Civil War, which may have to wait as my supervisor is taking a 6 month research break.

          Rats...I thought there was an English version of Hausser's book! I'd like to read more about him myself. I do know there's an English bio on Sepp Dietrich, but have only read the first chapter of it.

          For me, my research project will probably be ongoing until the day I die. I'm cataloging the COs and senior positions (XO, Chief Gunnery, etc.) of World War II Imperial Japanese Navy warships and major shore positions. I have all my info in one Wordpad document on my computer, and thus far it's grown to 5.61 MB! As I don't read Japanese, my efforts are kind of stuck at the moment, so if anyone knows of CO info for the Japanese subchasers, don't hesitate to contact me! (I already know about
