  • MONTGOMERY’S TACTICAL HEADQUARTERS - Karel Margry explains how the difficult search to precisely locate every one of General (later Field-Marshal) Bernhard Montgomery’s Tactical Headquarters sites turned into a particularly satisfying exercise, after many hours of searching through wartime documents he was able to identify each location for the first time.
  • Reprisals at Kondomari - On June 2, 1941 — two days after the Germans had captured the Greek island of Crete — a detachment of Fallschirmjäger carried out a reprisal action at the village of Kondomari, shooting 23 men in retribution for the reputed killing of five German soldiers by local fran-tireurs. Karel Margry explains that these actions, remarkably, were filmed by a German war photographer.
  • Manzanar Relocation Center - In issue 178 we described the camps set up on the Isle of Man to intern Germans and Italians considered to be a national threat. This prompted our long-time reader, Marty Black, a former US Navy pilot and recently retired from a lifetime as route captain for American Airlines, to visit one of the similar camps set up in the United States to intern Japanese.
