For almost 35 years, I am into US Army History and I have learned that in US Army History there is always someone shooting while the Yanks did never stop fighting between 1200 and 1300 for meal time. It’s been fun to type, for the first time, some hundred pages of archive about Canadian and British Troops. I just have to say that these stories are really boring, because typing War history about troops who were located in places where there was almost no war … sucks big time. Beside this, I have the feeling that peoples (at least my readers) are not really interested about archives from this side of Omaha Beach… I would really hear something about you guys to know I yes or not I should keep going with Canadian archives.
Update & Apologies
I have got an email and have to answer it. To be really clear about my statement above as well as to make sure that everyone understand perfectly what I want to say, I was only making a comparison between US Archives and Canadian and-or British Archives, about the way Battle reports were made in US and UK Historical Branch. I didn’t, of course, try to make comparison about Fields, Opponents, Enemy, nor Quantity of the Enemy. I have way far to much respect for all these men and what they did to fall into such a trap. In fact I am not used at Canadian Archives, I am not used at the way Historical Officer build these Archives and I need some time to adapt myself to these Archives.
