interesting / useful links

Post by lvjtn » 2019-11-23 18:59, Saturday

i open this threads for those sites which aren't strictly related to the campaign design like maps, but can be interesting for designers and players too, who want to know more about the nations, armies, wars, troops, uniforms, oobs, etc.

so here you are my first candidate: a nice site about the napoleonic wars

many thanks, both for the idea & addition Csab :yes (hopefully as general info not related to game game too)

my problem - as both serious/sourceful in history but also able to satirize it - is just language thing, not using English strictly for research and this is international society where English is a must. I always had that problem in international community forum and only way to talk to foreigner and give him/her some info was to link wikipedia or say "you have to trust me". And I personally dislike wikipedia (found too many things, false stats & politics to dislike it enough) but use it of course, sometimes point to something that is (to me) "dubious"... no argument to anyone, no disagreement, just objection and explanation why i can't add anything for now. might be back later and edit this place...

also any poster with something rich in older history (ancient, medieval) is welcome eventually.

Napoleon is good example, among thousands... in our historical narrative there are two stories - one that he conspired to kill our Black George (but never gave order) and other that he admired him and called him "better leader than himself", unable to help. Whom to trust, one, both, none, never heard etc...

sorry Csaba - off top, just to give example and foundation to my story to readers of troubles in historical research, not to mention global problems with ancient one and bad sources )

Unfortunately this site is in german language only but it offers informations about probably every vehicle the german Bundeswehr has ever used. There are informations about vehicles of other armies as well: http://www.panzerbaer.de/index.htm
