Other military history forums

#1
Recently I've really enjoyed some of the corking threads on this forum like "Battle dishounours/disgraces", "Something from history you never knew".

Is there another site anyone knows of with more of this sort of discussion -basically the slightly more irreverent facts that don't get into the usual history books we all read - for example where certain Regiments capbadges, mottos, decorations, etc came from (without having to read every Regiment's history) - just, you know, the interesting facts.

Any help gratefully etc etc

WWW.WorldWar2talk is quite interesting and has shed loads of links to other sites

On Jan.18th.I posted new topic saying that I had had my wrist slapped for daring to ask on another Forum "what other Military forums do you visit?"
Was told by them "WE don't advertise other Forums on here!"
Now, this is why ARRSE is the best!
(Please can we have an 'emoticon' with a 'Tanky' beret on?)

What an excellent thread. Lots of practical information.
I might just lose myself in 1066 and All that for months to come.
I think this thread should become a Sticky due to all the most informative sources.

Feldgrau is another very good WW2 forum with good discussions.
It was good, once. It could still be good...if you could get a word in edgeways and as long as you agreed with and showed adequate respect to the day-to-day administrator, a clinical egomaniac with delusions of intellectual grandeur, who seems to generate most of the content at the moment, much of which he apparently copies from books, magazines and the web.

By far the best forum relating to the Axis powers during WWII but also includes forums for the allied powers and others.

Axis History Forum
This statement is open to discussion but I shan't bother other than to warn people that this forum has been described as a kind of "honeytrap" run as an intelligence-gathering operation for the benefit of anti-nazi groups. Probably not true but perhaps best to use a pseudonym as some of the moderators and 'most-favoured' members certainly view any contributors who do not agree with their political and social views as "nazis".

Wehrmacht Awards Dot Com: run as a bent dealers' shill operation by tossers for tossers.

However, let's balance out the negative with a bit of positive:

http://gmic.co.uk/index.php?act=idx is perhaps the best all-round forum website out there.

For British decorations and medals, http://www.britishmedalforum.com/ is the best.

There are other good websites out there but just be careful of some of them because they are not quite what they seem to be and when you point this out, they are capable of taking retaliatory action 'off-line', like the Church of Scientology, especially the cliques running the three websites upon which I commented.

Use a nickname and take any other steps to protect your identity when visiting some of these places.
