actually there's more interest in this war like never before. there are tons of WW2 forums with very large memberships. a lot of youngsters are very interested in how this war started. the hardware. land sea and air battles. theatres of operation. oposing military leaders. and a lot who come on looking for info on their passed relatives who served. just about every topic you can think of.
Im on 3 of them. which includes a ton of foreigners with a very keen and knowledgeable interest in it. ive learned a lot talking to these members. mainly Germans and Brits. and the photos they post are nothing short of awesome !!!!!
