    If the editorial advisory panel member Julian Thompson is THE Julian Thompson of the Falklands fight, this is a great find indeed and will support a ton of research which has stalled the last few years.
    Better yet the JMO is holding its first MAsterclass this weekend at Cambridge University, UK. I'd give my left nut to be able to go.

    Wilf's and Jim Storr's articles on dismounted combat, parachute operations, the IFV are interesting.

    Default What is Strife?

    A blog from Kings College War Studies, separate from Kings of War, which was only id'd today by a SWJ contributor and their explanation 'What is Strife':
    Strife is a student led blog, aimed at anyone in the academic community – from first year undergraduates to professors. Our blog is focused on the theme of ‘conflict’, in all senses of the word. We combine history, literature, and philosophical approaches to politics (among other things) to try to create an informative and entertaining blog to our readers.

    I criticised it lately, but it's interesting at times.

    Default European (French, German, Russian) Blogs

    Hi all,

    I'm curious if any of you would recommend any French, German, or Russian blogs on national security or politics. The blogs can be about those countries or originate from those countries, and can be in English, French, German, or Russian. Thanks!

    So I guess Kings of War went dark? What a shame, was one of my spots I liked to visit.

    Condor,

    Kings of War appears to be sleeping currently, I shall ask what has happened with a friend @ Kings.

    Defence in Depth appears to be the work of those from Kings based at the Defence Academy, which has always had a distinc identity.

    Standby.

    Thank you David. Haven't been on much the past two months due to commitments. Was surprised when I couldn't get on there the other day.

    Default Kings of War is back

    From an email to subscribers:
    No, we didn’t fall victim to North Korean hackers, but we’re not quite sure what happened, either. Normal service will resume shortly. For the moment, we’re reading through the results of the latest round of academic league-tabling, and listening to Putin avoid talking about the collapse of the Russian currency.

    Default Babatim is back (aka Free Range International)

    Babatim is Tim Lynch, a former USMC officer who was in Afghanistan as a civilian "outside the wire" and had an excellent blog running till his departure in May 2012, alongside having "issues" to resolve. He has resumed blogging, which is a prelude to book writing. Hat tip to a SWC member for noticing.
    Link:http://freerangeinternational.com/blog/?p=5480

    In 2009 CavGuy posted this comment:
    Pithy yet excellent Afghanistan insight you won't find elsewhere.
    Tim's own bio (dated 2008):
    I am a retired Marine who spent over seven years in Afghanistan doing security and reconstruction projects. I traveled to every province in the country, rarely used armored vehicles, never lived inside a base or secure compound, and made many great friends during my time in Afghanistan. For the last four years of my adventure I blogged extensively on what I was doing and what I was seeing on the ground. There are some great stories and cool pictures on this blog as well as guest posts from a few truly remarkable people. I am leaving the blog up as a resource for people to visit for a unique perspective into the longest conflict in American history.
