US in Vietnam

I found this and it made me think of Steve from WWPD and his current enjoyment of Flames of War: Vietnam.  I also really liked the part about how the Marines used a combined arm team with Air Assault and amphibious landings supported by fast air.  Both this video and the one about the invasion of  Sicily talked about the need to have administrative support that immediately followed the fighting forces to make sure the civilian population know their future is going to be better than their past.

Allies taking Sicily

Another great video from Nuclearvault.  This one is about the Allies invasion of Sicily.  Very cool to see the footage and of interesting note they were using Piper Cubes as AOPs this early in the war.  Battlefront, in the unlikely chance you ever see this post or video, what do you think?  I'm hoping to have some WIP shortly for the AI.

82nd Airborne video

Thanks to Nuclearvault for uploading this video.  If you don't subscribe to him your missing a ton of amazing videos from WWII to present day.  This one is all about the 82nd Airborne.  Did you know they made 4 combat jumps in the war instead of the 2 that the 101st did?  They fought in Italy and then came up for D-day and they were also in the Battle of the Bugle.  I hope you all enjoy this as mush as I did, it certainly help get me motivated to work on the Avenger's Initiative.

Paths of Glory 13

This Sunday Perkins Hobby House held a 1750 MW tournament.  There was roughly 24 players with both the Axis and Allies being well represented.  As always Gary from Perkins had great tables, great food and some great times.  I'm not going to do a battle report for all of the games but I will do some posts on the limited photos I did take.
