WW2History.com News

|   11 June 2010


WW2History.com has just gone live in the United States of America.

And since we have so many fine American historians on the site, and since all of my last documentary series were made in co-production with various American colleagues and friends, it’s a moment that I especially want to mark.

One small way of recognizing this significant day in the brief history of WW2History.com is to feature an American in our monthly competition. This month, subscribers to WW2History.com are asked to name this American marine.

Not as famous or Nimitz or Patton, he did still play an important part in key battles in WW2 and went on to become Commandant of the Marine Corps. The first three correct answers naming this tough Marine, taken at random from the correct suggestions made, will win a signed hardback copy of Michael Burleigh’s brilliant new book – ‘Moral Combat – a history of World War II’. But remember, you need to be a subscriber to the site to enter the competition and you can only do so via the form available in the Members’ Zone of the site, accessible via the subscription homepage.
