Military Interests:

I have many military interests mainly WW2. I focus on the Battle of Normandy, the Battle of the Bulge and recently the Battle of the Colmar Pocket. However, I am interested in any other Battles fought in WW2 even in the Pacifc. My focus regarding units are the 82nd and 101st Airborne Division as well as the 15th German Fallschirmjaeger Regiment. 

 

Furthermore, I am interested in the history of Swiss nationals who fought in foreigen service in famous battles, the history of the Swiss guard or the Crusades.
