    Naval warfare is my favorite field of study, along with the American Civil War, which I also reenact. I also enjoy studying air warfare.

    I'm pretty knowlegable on the firearms used by everyone in Europe, but especially US u. German.
    I've been an airplane nut since my first ride in a Stearman bi plane at age 5, I'm pretty well up on most aircraft.
    Also pretty knowlegable on German medals/badges.
    Of course I come by this thru having been a collector since about 1953.

    Probably the American Civil War--the first one, not the one we're going to have pretty soon.

    I'm not much of an expert on anything. I tend to focus, though on the "lesser" theaters of WW2, the Aegean, CBI, etc. I also have an interest in tanks, military firearms, and WW2-era special units (particularly Decima Mas). Outside WW2, I study Byzantine history, the American Civil War and Indian Wars.

    I'm not an expert on anything, but I have an average knowledge on the major campaigns in all theaters of the War. I am mostly familiar with the Aviation aspect of WW2 to the Vietnam War. I also have some pretty decent knowledge on the basics of tank combat and Tanks used during WW2. I know an okay amount of knowledge on the small arms of WW2 as well.

    Not an expert on any one subject but you don't get to be my age (currently 94) without having experienced life in general.

    Throw in my time in the British Army between October 1942 & February 1947, service in both Light Ack Ack and an armoured unit during the closing stages of the war in Italy and you might concede that I have been around and should know some of the answers

    I know a bit about USN carrier operations and an even smaller bit about USN patrol/bomber operations. Just enough to be either annoying or dangerous, depending on your point of view. Anything else is just odds and ends picked up along the way.

    I am a real novice but am learning as i go along, mostly from books and of course this forum. I can offer to help if anyone wants to find out more about individual soldiers. I have ancestry and newspaper archive subcriptions and could look up names and dates. It's not always possible to find them but you never know. if i can help with something like that let me know.

    For the last few years I've been pretty focused researching on the men of the 1st Ranger Btn, "C" Co, 1st Section from Sicily to the wars end. What they did, who they were, what they thought, how they felt. I've learned a lot.

    I would never call myself an expert at anything, lol. Just calling myself an historian is enough. However, I tend to focus all my attention on National Socialism and the Homefront. I focus more on the human side of the war and how it relates to social change. The paradigm shifts fascinate me.

    I'm an expert on nothing except my likes, wants, and needs.

    In relation to WWII, I have little more than passing knowledge about most subjects, especially when compared to some of the learned Rogues here.
    My interests are:
    the ETO, with particular focus on one little recon formation that fought its way from St Jean de Daye, France to the Elbe River, at Magdeburg,
    unit organization,
    the naval aspect of the PTO (Battle Off Samar, in particular and the Guadalcanal campaign),
    and medical aspects of the war.
    I can also provide direction and advice on those seeking information about family members who served.
