    Re: New WWII Film 'Fury' Features Last Working Tiger

    Saw it this weekend. Combat realism was not, in my opinion, a high priority: e.g., soldiers armed with a panzerfaust close to about 20-30 feet to fire the weapon from the middle of a road, rather...

    Tirpitz?

    The naval war is not exactly my specialty, but I was watching a "Military Channel" production on a UK Commando raid on the dry dock facilities at Saint Nazaire (in France). The show claims these dry...

    Re: Ebola.

    JR, I'm sure you know as well as anyone that we're overdue for a pandemic. It's been almost 100 years since the last one (the Spanish Flu of 1918). It's not a question of IF, but WHEN and HOW BAD. We...
  8. Re: Did US really devote only 15% of war effort to Pacific War?

    Agreed. But if you look, *I* never said anything about USMC Divisions. ;)
  9. Re: Did US really devote only 15% of war effort to Pacific War?

    In any case, as many as about 6,000 US Marines served in the ETO. I'd call that more than "few to none," though you're free to argue about their significance as a percentage of all those serving. The...
  10. Re: Did US really devote only 15% of war effort to Pacific War?

    Perhaps proving another point about lies and statistics: I've seen figures for Normandy that go as high as just a hair under 7,000 for ships "of all types" -- landing craft, tenders, warships, supply...

    Re: Authors recommendation?

    Not knowing what you've read complicates recommendations. Classic reads include Is Paris Burning?, and any of Cornelius Ryan's books. I enjoyed William B. Breuer's Operation Torch: The Allied Gamble...
  12. Re: Did US really devote only 15% of war effort to Pacific War?

    Or if you count things like Lend-lease to the USSR (and the related shipping and other logistical resources) as part of the total US resources, maybe the 15% is a little closer to being accurate....
  13. Re: Did US really devote only 15% of war effort to Pacific War?

    To answer the original question, it does not seem that the 15% figure has validity. To quote from the official US Army Historical Office, "...although the Army devoted at least one-third of its...
  14. Re: Did US really devote only 15% of war effort to Pacific War?

    Off the top of my head, I have no idea how accurate the 15% figure is, but think it is an aggregate figure, not a goal for each service arm. But it does seem natural the US Navy would be allocating a...

    Yet isn't realpolitik exactly the perspective from which virtually all governments operate?
