  • Hello Armchair General World

    Hi everyone, having registered, I thought I'd dip a toe into the AG pool, and say hello.

    My name is Mark, and I'm less an Armchair General, and more a chaise longue private
    My background is completely non military, but I've sustained an interest in military history since my school days. Possibly initiated by the eventual discovery that my school's history curriculum ended the day before WW1 started

    As well as books, I enjoy the more complex turn based strategy games, such as "War in The Pacific", "Hearts of Iron" "Europa Universalis 3" etc. Anything that involves manufacture, supply, logistics and infrastructure. Regrettably, it's the fighting where I usually fall flat on my face.
    "Yes I know my armoured division was surrounded and destroyed by your company of light infantry, but did you notice how well fed they all were!"

    Anway, thanks for taking the time to read my (hopefully) brief ramble.
    It's even money that the light at the end of the tunnel
    is an oncoming express.

    Hi Mark! We need more Brits around here - everyone thinks we're trying to take over but really, we just want to make sure everyone has a nice cup of tea.

    Imagine a ball of iron, the size of the sun. And once a year a tiny sparrow brushes its surface with the tip of its wing. And when that ball of iron, the size of the sun, is worn away to nothing, your punishment will barely have begun.

                Logistics, an interesting topic, something I feel we need more on, don't have enough people into this that I know of as their main interest. WW II anyone?

                Have some good times on the site here!!
