As the finger heals, you may be getting an overlarge dose of historical videos. I only discovered this channel the other day. Quite good I thought. If you want more, let me know. (If you want less, well, let me know, I can take it... 🤔)



The publisher mentioned as the sponsor of this video, Osprey? Magnificent! Check them out here.

  1. Another one to check out, Pluto tv, they have a military channel. Lots of old movies. And one that does a lot of John Wayne, it has both browser and Android/apple covered.

  3. Good links, thanks. See the Osprey one and my wallet screams. Have a couple of bookshelves filled with Aircraft of the Aces, Combat Aircraft, Aviation Elite, Air Campaign, Et Al.

    1. I have a ton of their Napoleonic series. My wallet got too hoarse to scream after a while.

  4. Ospreys... Especially with the Angus McBride illustrations, a medievalist's dream. Amazing how they (Osprey) can condense 40-50 dry tomes of history into a 40-60 page book and make it come alive.

    Just the bibliography section is amazing.

    All because some nerds wanted to paint their toy soldiers correctly. Whodathunk?

Just be polite... that's all I ask. (For Buck)
