I am little bit more into the old wars....i think that it is really incredible how the roman empire got so powerfull back than.....their tactics were way ahead of the other countries.

Topic: most interesting wars


personally ww1, the pacifc in ww2, and the colonial wars that the british fought. also the apache wars.
i like ww1 and the pacific mainly because of realitives that served. after reading diarys and officer reports of some of the battles, those guys survived thru some things that after reading you think how the hell could they take that sort of punishment and continue on, they have my utmost respect and always will.
also the lighthorse in ww1 who did a lot of work where there weren,t any trenches.

cheers

For some reason I'd also go with WW2. Somehow it intrigues me. My fave movies are Patton, Longest Day, etc. My term paper in high school was about D-Day. As a senior and to this day I could list you the 5 japanese aircraft carriers that attacked Pearl Harbor. I dunno why but when other kids in school were reading "Joe Schmo Music Book" I was into the books about WW2. They had a time life set of the color of war. Im very strategy based so maybe Im Patton reincarnated and taking a break lol

Other wars are just there but its wierd how I have been a WW2 buff for about 15 years and am still learning new things about it all. Anyway, this is mine.

Very good films. Though I currently am quite obsessed with the Band of Brothers series. That and the goodness The History Channel is showing in remembrance of D-Day.

Well every war in XX century, plus US Civil War.
-WWII was revolution in tactics, technology,..... There is abnormaly much to learn from one war.
