Re: QUESTIONS RE: Performance of VII Corps in Desert Storm

I highly recommend Stephen Bourque's book. It is, perhaps, the best modern operational history written. I use it as a how-to guide for writing such works.

Re: QUESTIONS RE: Performance of VII Corps in Desert Storm

Dear Dr. Bourque, Dr. Moise, and Dr. Jason,

I thank you profoundly for your cogent and illuminating replies!  You are making my research both easy and pleasant and I am deeply grateful.

 

Gentlemen, with all possible respect, I ask you to please note that I was careful to put the word “allegedly” in front of the words “slow and timid.”  Also, while I did say that Franks was allegedly “lackluster,” I did not use the word “lackadaisical.”  The word “lackadaisical” implies sloppy and careless which Franks absolutely was *not.* If anything, his critics accuse him of being *too* careful.  His critics would apply the adjective of “lackluster” to him in the sense of lacking boldness and panache.

 

Seeking paper for 100th anniversary of Turkish naval aviation

Dear List Members,

I am seeking a colleague to present a paper on the topic of “Turkish-British Cooperation in Naval Aviation 1930-1947” for the symposium that will be hosted by the Turkish Naval Command on 21 June 2014 on the occasion of the 100th anniversary of Turkish naval aviation. Any colleagues that would be interested in presenting, please contact me off-list as soon as possible at yilmazer1959@gmail.com.

Thank you and best regards,
