    Australians went crazy in WW1 and WW2 when i watched this black and white video clip!!!

    Like in WW1 when the aussies on horses just with bush knives and rifles charged towards the turkish machine guns screaming at the top of their lungs, they hadn't had water for weeks.

    WW2, the aussies in african desert ran towards a German Camp with huge mechates and austrailan machine guns and scared the germans away.

    anyway, I've read Panzer Commander, getting Panzer General (Heinz Guderian) and currently reading Rommel as Military Commander.

    Is that 'Infantry Attacks!' by Rommel?

    I read it as part of the recommended books list when I was learning the delicate art of Platoon Command (better known as MTQ2 which sounds, and is, far less impressive ). I can imagine it being rather dry as it is concerned very much with the nuts and bolts of infantry warfare. Certainly, without the background of having been taught the formal estimate and orders I would have struggled to finish it.

    I only had one proper complaint about the translation (which is an American one from the 1930s, if my memory serves me correctly) and that is the use of the phrase 'hit the dirt'. It jars horribly with the tone of the book and to my mind sounds like Cleetus (Simpsons, slack-jawed yokel) interrupting the flow of the text.

    band of brothers is a great book. i forget the author, and its an easy read but it tells a great story. it even had an 8 or 9 part series directed by steven spielberg about it, show on HBO. the series is very good, and movie quality.

    Band of Brothers has several Series right?, I read the first two series of the books a long time ago and I found it very dull and boring so i didn't bother reading the rest of the series.

    as far as i no there is only one book, about easy company, by stephen ambrose. i might be wrong...but the ending of band of brothers doesnt really leave any plot left for a 2nd book to be written, because at the end of the book the war ends.

    Yes and no. I can imagine the use of artillery fire to cut the wires of field telephones is rather less useful than it was in 1914-18. However, it is still recommended reading for Student Officers and I presume is on the reading list for Sandhurst.

    a common trick practised by the germans on both the west/eastern fronts was to cut telephone wires, then prepare an amush position.

    when the repair party showed up, the germans would make them surrender, and take them as prisoners!

    actually, I'm not really an Ambrose fan either. No offense to anybody, but certain parts of his books come across to me as "WW2 for flag-waving dummies". His writing, however, is very simple and readable.
    but some of his arguments are poorly reseached.

    Hes not a real researcher like David M. Glantz and he throws out statistics, loss figures, units strengths left and right with many of them wrong. all his information are readibly available info from the net and old, sometimes inaccurate books written in the 70s-80s.

    IE, He gave the strength of KG peiper in the ardennes 22,000! When everyone knows that KG peiper was 4,800 men strong!

    He used the old "patton estimate" for german causalties in normandy, with is 250,000. But the actual number, compiled by historians with german records, is 89,000.

    he constantly uses the slang jabos, which started to annoy me.

    he calls every german tank gun "an 88". he claimed that the panther had an "88"!

    etc, etc

    And as stated before, for example in band of Brothers, he always has them fighting elite units, Im sure they did on occassions, but not all occassions.

    Still his books are readable and not heavy going as some are. I would say they would be a good starting point for anyone getting into the subject.

    Also, he does seem to treat Eisenhower as a God.
