    Hello everyone,

    I've decided to join you in this superb forum after a time of lurking around. I'm an Spanish aficionado to all WW2 related, although my knowledge is quite scattered and my background is not related at all. I guess that's the definition of amateur ;).

    My interests range from developments on technology during wartime (I currently have Paul Kennedy's "Engineers of Victory" shelved on cue, to be digested once finished with Beevor's account on the whole period) to general politics; unfortunately I'm not much inclined to strategy or tactical affairs. Maybe all your insights change such traits.

    My goal is to boost my knowledge on the period enough to be able to fulfill my other passion, which is writing, using a blog as preferred media. I have the feeling that the only way to really make any piece of knowledge of your own is writing on it.

    To finish, I'm sorry for my English, constantly under heavy improvement. Therefore I cheerfully appreciate any comments on my grammar and speech, the pickier the better ;).

    So, I salute you all from Spain, in the hope of being able to contribute to this great community soon.

    EDIT: Typo...

    Well, Spain is Southern to Europe or are you from Southern Spain ? Such a beautiful country, regardless welcome hereYour English is probably better than our collective English. Well, perhaps the Brits, Scots, Welsh, Picts, Jutes, Saxons and even the Normans (Still learning) do better than we Colonials.

    Scots and Welsh are British...there choice. Haha...and you forgot us Celts, Opana will be in soon...See how well the Irish speak English? <iframe width="640" height="360" src="" frameborder="0" allow="autoplay; encrypted-media" allowfullscreen></iframe>

    Australians are the most correct speakers of English outside upper class English.
    Ruben your English is beautiful...I WISH I could speak Spanish half as well...

    My English is intended to embarrass the Brits.

    Howdy Ruben, good to see you join us.
    Think your English is poor? Fugetaboutit! As long as you don't confuse this Southerner with a Yank!
