Military: ‘new museum are(nt) rubbish’

Written by RSS Poster Daly History Blog
It’s been really interesting, over the past few years, visiting newly redeveloped museums. And even more interesting reading the various reviews. Lets face it, we all like a good moan. And even more, we like to try and knock down … Continue reading


Military: What is Military History Now?

Written by RSS Poster Daly History Blog
I’ve been watching some of the debates centred on military history with great interest. The Centenary of the Third Battle of Ypres (or is it Paschendaele?!) and the release of the film Dunkirk have inspired much navel-gazing and hand-wringing from … Continue reading

Military: Military History: is there anything new to learn?

Written by RSS Poster Daly History Blog
Last weekend I spent a very interesting couple of days working at our D-Day 70 Community Conference. As well as a visit to Southwick House which served as Eisenhower, Montgomery and Ramsay’s headquarters in the days prior to D-Day (I’d … Continue reading


Military: D-Day on your Doorstep

Written by RSS Poster Daly History Blog
The D-Day landings and the campaign in North West Europe in 1944 and 1945 are normally thought of as beginning in Normandy on 6 June and ending in Berlin on 8 May 1945. As usual with anything military history related, the real story behind the scenes is much different. The whole campaign from D-Day onwards depended on much preparation in Britain for months, if not years afterwards. In fact, virtually every corner of Britain will have some kind of connection with D-Day. Continue reading


Military: The Long Long LONG Trail: First World War on the TV (part 1)

Written by RSS Poster Daly History Blog

Military: Afghanistan, Vehicles, and Urgent Operational Requirements

Written by RSS Poster Daly History Blog
This week's Top Gear had a very interesting segment about the British Army's use of 'soft-skinned' vehicles in Afghanistan. It is a subject that has been well written about, but now that Operation Herrick is winding down, is it time to pose some questions on British military procurement? It is well known that the British Army entered the campaigns in Iraq and Afghanistan relying almost solely on the faithful Land Rover for patrolling. Was this a case of simply retaining equipment that had been intended to fight previous wars? Did budgetary constraints prevent proper planning? Continue reading
