For those of you who have digital cable, the Discovery network's Military Channel has been running a nice series on WWI. Last week, they had an excellent show on the naval war, which showed just how extensive and world-wide the conflict was. (And why the Chinese make decent beer....)
The show I'm watching now is a comparison between the Brit 18-pound field gun and the German howitzer. Comparisons of tactics, examination of ammunition used, firing demonstratons....Pretty good stuff. They repeat these shows a lot, so no problem if you miss one.
thx for the headsup, the only time i can sit down and watch that channel is 3 am after work, a reruns of "wingspan" and "wings of victory" finally a breath of new fresh air
Yup I like those ww1 and comparison shows, they show some real nice footage of the wars.
I live in Liberal/Communist San Francisco and our Bullshit Cable provider doesn't provide the "Military Channel". When I asked about it they told me there's no demand. Home & Garden and Interior design channels up the wazooo. No _ucking history (They just added History Channel this year). Gee I wonder why?
I think its time to let your cable provider meet Mr. Molotov cocktail :)
damm you Americans and your 3000 channels, i've only got 170 :(
SilenT AssassiNI think its time to let your cable provider meet Mr. Molotov cocktail :)
Burn em all! I get 70:wtf: You know I bet people in the Antarctic get more choices than me. Is it that WWI & II in color I've been reading about? Don't get me wrong I love my history books. But shit a War documentary once in a while would be nice.
If you only have 70 then I doubt you have digital cable, because with Digital Cable you have like 999 channels.
I caught it that 18 pounder (so named because of the weight of the shell) got owned by the indirect fire. Then they talked about how they made so many of them the brits had to use them for something so they started using them for Anti aircraft.
ARGHHHH!!!! YOU GOT HISTIORY CHANAL!!!!!!! *cry's* i have to do it with the normal discovery chanal or national geographic...wher Somtimes! is a show in the midle of the night :(
