My speciality armor ,infantry and aircraft
I like to think I specialise in german and soviet tanks of world war two,along with the kubelwagen and willys/ford/bantam jeeps of the era.
Like Ricky,I am especially fond of 1066 and all that also ww1(somme verdun etc.)
My specialty is the battles of Moscow, Stalingrad and Kursk. Or anything else on the E. Front.

I know everything, and nothing!
Like several other posters, I am a repository of relatively useless information, on a wide variety of subjects. However, I claim mastery of none. If I was a master, I'd have my own forum!
i'm starting to learn a lot about naval war. (i'm even start to create my own library on my computer ) and some things about the desert war and blitzkrieg in general.
Indeed, this board is exceptional for learning, or if you want to see some rather fine (but pointless to most people) agruments.
If I had to pick a specialty, the China-Burma-India theater would be it. I am also particular to the Soivet-Afghan War, US foreign policy, and Eastern religions.
I'm knowledgable about bombers from WW1 to modern day. I'm particulary knowledgable about WW2 bombers, excluding light bombers.
I don't much on anything but I do have a fascination with Small-arms in particular the Bren, SMLE, and M98 Mausers
i used to think i knew a lot about fighter planes and ww2 history..but that was before i came here...lol
I have plenty of fighter information under my belt. Mostly armament and speed...performance specs, that kind of thing.
i dont know much, but what what i do know is mostly WW1 aviation, and cold war era soviet and warsaw pact weaponry (particulariy aeroplanes)... Really dont know much about WW2 tanks, but i'm here to learn !!
I spent years researching WWII aircraft performance characteristics (thanks in big part to the books of test pilot Erich Brown - "Wings of the Luftwaffe", and "Wings of the [British] Navy") and created performance data which I finally contacted Avalon Hill game company about, for their games "Air Force" and "Dauntless" as I wished to supply enough new aircraft specs for them to release a new expansion kit. This was years ago, but was still too late in the product's lifespan I guess as they were not interested. It was a lot of fun though.
I also spent a lot of time researching the British Pacific Fleet & Eastern Fleet (Indian Ocean) operations. The BPF did a lot more for the Pacific war than most realize! i.e. support of the U.S. Marines at Okinawa.; here's some trivia - the last air combat of WWII was said be between Seafires and Zeros Aug 15 '45.
Also I've studied WWII armor & aircraft enough to have fun proposing what designs I would have done during the war, i.e. my username! That's fun too.
I'm getting quite knowledgable with guerilla/partisan/insurgent warfare, especially with regrads to the Middle East
i used to think i was pretty well informed about ww2 and military history in general ..till i started hanging out with you guys ...then i discovered my great depth of knowlege was ...ah ..not really any deeper than the rain puddles on my driveway...its like when i was a kid growing up , from 1st grade all the way through high school ,i was alway the best draftsman in my school ,alway praised by peers and teachers as a great artist ,always the one selected to do the holliday murals or backdrops for the plays ect ...then in college , i went to a real art school ...and learned humility ...all things are relative..lol
My dad was present during the Battle off Samar, a part of the Battle for Leyte Gulf, and the invasion of Okinawa, among others. I guess that because of that connection and the information that I have learned from him and the resource I have collected about those battles and beyond, I probably know a fair amount about the Pacific war.
I study anything to do with partisans, special ops, commandos, or POW escapes.
Paratroopers on D-Day.
it never did and do not know as correctly
I do not understand you that, it never did
