    Re: 75th anniversary of D-Day...

    The fighting was not in the vicinity of Flers for very long, so I would not have anticipated just how beat-up Flers was by 17 Aug 44. Man, I guess it does not pay to throw a war in your own...

    This is really off-topic (apologies Brad), but I found a page written by a native Occitan speaker, with an associated video.

  3. News Article: Re: Dabo Swinney is College Football’s Real Evil Villain

    I do too (I find it a little creepy), but I do not think that makes him "evil."
    I guess I just object to the overlaying of moral judgements onto every difference. Thomas Jefferson said, (1st...
  4. News Article: Re: Dabo Swinney is College Football’s Real Evil Villain

    Maybe I'm in the minority, but not everyone who disagrees with me is ipso facto evil. There are plenty of people with whom I disagree, and there are those about whom are things for which I do not...

    Is Aripitan intelligible for French-speakers? I've never heard it, (although I have been to Haute Savoie.

    Agreed. Plus, the further south the Allies staid, the more Italian coastline the Germans had to defend.

    Re: 75th anniversary of D-Day...

    True, and it wasn't like they switched a lot of LSTs back and forth from the Pacific Theater of War to the European Theater of War. I think once they went to one theater of war or the other, they...

    I think the reasons the Allies went with Italy before Marseilles were two:
    1. It was the obvious choice in the summer of 1943, since they had captured all of North Africa and Sicily was within range...

    I seem to have read the same thing somewhere. If it is true that Churchill was arguing the "Italy has to take precedence," then it was another case of the sideshow detracting scarce resources away...

    True, but it could make the plot of a great suspense film: "92Tide Escapes from Hong Kong."

    I have always thought that Dragoon was launched about a month too late. It could have been more useful in July. The German forces in the south of France were the 11th Panzer Division and a bunch of...

    I think the paras dropped as part of Dragoon (the 1st Allied Airborne Task Force) were Brits (2 Para Brigade) and U.S. 509th PIR, 517th PRCT, and later the US-Canadian 1st Special Service Force was...

    That is the silver lining of Tua not winning the Heisman last year.
