Hyperwar is internet gold. Thanks Opana.
Big push going on to get the last of Patrick's legacy online.
Wow! A lot of good stuff there, Larry.
Mostly "speckled" files, the ones there were xerox'd too many times and produce too much "noise" for my OCR programs.
Coming up: Mountbatten speaks at Pearl Harbor, c. September, 1941.
Late September, 1941, Mountbatten arrived in Hawaii and was given the run of the place. At the end of his visit he gave a talk concerning lessons learned so far by the British and his observations of the USN at Hawaii. Many officers submitted reactions of his ideas. We have uploaded two PDFs that contain what documents we found on this matter.
Add "Combat Lessons", nine booklets consisting of "tips" from the boots on the ground.
I now feel I have the basest grasp of air gunning. Never know when it might come in handy.
This is your Gun:
Slogging through the Neutrality instructions. Flagging...
Dry, but fascinating. And lord that must have been a well-thumbed manual before weapons were freed somewhat.
Sub Salvage manual looks good. In that 'why am I reading this?' way. Who can resist headings like 'Accidental submarine sinkings since 1904' & 'crane lifting reactor compartment'.
Think I may sit down and actually absorb Mountbatten's stuff on Pearl Harbor though.
Keep up the good work, OP.
Nobody's blowing smoke when they compliment Hyperwar.
I have four more bookcases of material to work through. I'll send my scanner's manufacturer a nice note if it survives that.
Waves or Spars.
$200 worth of clothes - free!
The tone alone is damned fine:
Moving onto 'Combat Lessons'.
Need to DL those to send to the phone. Distilled after-action reports always fascinating.
'Bedeviling' - I like 'bedeviling', especially with pyrotechnics...
BuOrd History records that women were not always welcome by the "old hands" (read "old assholes") but that they had proven their worth through the war.
1.792 terabytes of files online at this point.
You have been my go to for too many years. Thank you. My only suggestion would be to add links for the Green Books to the CMH website. No need to reinvent those PDFs.
I have them in zip files for easier downloading, have to find the page.
My new scanner does 240 page/hr.
