I think that it is a coast defence battleship. They don't slug it out on the high seas. They nip in and out of coastlines with lots of islands and coordinate with coastal artillery. They present a small target wit high maneuverability and firepower The tall rangefinder gives good firing data over lo...

The Mauser was a good rifle, but there was little to choose between it and the Lee-Enfield. I have fired both in competitive range conditions and accuracy is competitive. The thing that sets the Lee-Enfield apart however, is it's 10 round magazine and wonderfully quick smooth bolt action that allows...

I think that it is important to distinguish between the higher command competing fiefdoms that Hitler created and mismanaged in his war, from the Field Units and their TO&Es and doctrine. When it comes down to things like Luftwaffe Field Divisions, which were a failure, mainly due to the determinati...

I need to correct a point I made above, Western European Allied tank losses were in fact 3 for every 1 German. The five to one tank ratio was on the Russian Front, also where 1 Stug was knocked out for every 3 Russian tanks. The points made in 'Fighting Power' consider things like leadership, office...

Just to make things clear to everybody TO&Es in all armies in WW2 varied from year to year, sometimes even with a year, due to the constraints or demands of topography, tactical circumstances, casualties, logistics, change of doctrine or any number of circumstances. It is a fact that some US TO&Es s...

As far as I know this is correct and reflects the way they move and fight. A medium tank platoon (or troop) moves in bounds of 2 with one pair in over-watch and one pair moving, with the troop commanders vehicle observing and instructing the 'pairs', usually moving at the same time as the second pai...

Well done DP! Please keep up the good work. Signal's observation about govt. TO&Es s is well made. They are prepared to be read by a wide range of experts from intelligence to logistics, who need to know how best to work with the units depicted and reflect that. If you ever read an official army pam...

It took a lot longer for the cruiser connection to be got right, probably because the advent of the battlecruiser rendered the armoured cruiser obsolete. The experience of these ships at Jutland made this point dramatically clear. It is fair to say that these are the precedesesors of the post W.W.1 ...
