My interest though is Aviation-
My great uncle was a pilot in WWI with the 96 Bombardment Sqdr..  This is the one in which all six planes ran out of fuel inside germany and all crews were captured. I recently discovered a box of about 60 photos around bases and within POW camp.  Some are the mass produced "postcards"  some are unique.

My father flew the hump in WWII.


I am interested in the development of aircraft, strategies, and battle plans, more than the specific hardware.  like books.

Thanks for the add.
