    Every time I see this guy on one of those Military Channel or History Channel shows all I can think is that he plays too much Warcraft and gets his commentary from a collection of "coffee table" books bought off the discount table at B. Dalton. He just strikes me as one of those intellectually shallow but likable academics who get alot of people in his course because he grades easy.
    Anyone else have an opinion on this guy?

    You reffering to that curly guy who talks as if his audience are 12 year olds?? He tries very hard to make the subject seem dramatic. I frequently scream to the screen that it is no need to since we are talking about war.

    He is probably interviewed for younger or less interested audiences that go: Gee that sounded fascinating...

    Yep, that's the guy. To me he always sounds like a high school student discussing some aspect of war.

    The missus frequently ask me why I bother seeing the documentaries on the telly. All I do is moan about the errors or biased views. Either shut up or put up. I guess she has a point:rolleyes:

    I think that is the guy that was talking about all the tanks I mentioned in my other thread 'Top Ten Tanks'. If he is,(because I always record my doco's because I am not home) I always fast forward this guy.

    No. It's just following one of the precepts of Sun Tzu: "Know yourself and your enemies and you will win all your battles." Gotta keep up on what the 'enemy' is doing......

    Can't place this guy either in the same vein there is/was an editor of World War II magazine that has commented a couple times on the History Channel. I won't name him but he allegedly wrote a couple articles for the American Aces newsletter that sounded real familiar.

    It didn't take me too long to search some key lines and find the familiar dialogue and that he had plagurized the entire works from the internet. Cut and past- word for word.

    A TOP male lecturer at Sandhurst who taught Princes William and Harry has won his own war — to be a woman.

    Officer Cadets returned to the elite military academy for a new term yesterday to find pipe-smoking Dr Aryeh Nusbacher is now Lynette.

    Dr Nusbacher, 40 — already tagged “Mrs Gunfire” — is believed to have had the sex change op in the past few weeks.

    On top of giving her the title of Ma’am, cadets have been ordered to treat her with full respect.

    Sandhurst’s Commandant, Major General Peter Pearson, has warned that any jokes or snide remarks by pupils or staff will be severely punished.

    The US-born professor, married with a young daughter, is still living with wife Melanie and family in nearby Guildford, Surrey.

    A friend of Lynette’s said: “She’s a very brave girl.

    “A stiff upper lip military environment such as Sandhurst is about the hardest place to come out.”

    As well as teaching at Sandhurst the professor is known to viewers of the BBC2 war game show Time Commanders and History Channel documentaries.

    So, don't ever refer to 'her' as Dr. Lynette 'I-Changed-My-Mind-I-Want-My' Nussbacher.

    (...no, no... that wouldn't do at all!...)

    So what? I know a few women with more balls than most men. Maggie Thatcher, Golda Meir, Elisabeth I, Catherine the Great, Maria Theresa of Austria, etc, etc.

    I don't see myself doing it, but perhaps a few members of this Grate Sight might be tempted :D
