  1. A haunting ending. Very emotional series.
  2. Why did Meni become religious after the war?
  3. I never heard that word used by the local non-Ashkenazi Jews. Spanish Jews and Middle Eastern Jews (Last names like Franco or Tamil) lived together in what us Gentiles called the Sephardic Community. The Syrian Jews did refer to themselves as “SY.” Ashkenazi Jews were not around there.
  4. Quick correction, I think yekke means German-Jews. Eric Bana’s character in Munich was of German descent.
  5. Different foods, different lingos, different ways of dressing.
  6. They are Sephardic Jews. Jews that were living in other Middle Eastern countries or Spain. Ethnicity is Arab, but religion is Judaism. There’s a large Sephardic community in NY. The racism that the Black Panthers in the series were fighting was the dislike between Jews of Ashkenazi descent and the Sephardic Jews.
  7. A new series is on HBO from Israel named Valley of Tears about the Golan Heights in the Yom Kippur War. Real Centurion tanks.
  8. Nevermind, got the Twitter heads up. https://worldoftanks.com/en/news/announcements/book-club-tank-destroyers-0920/
  9. Good stuff. 165db?!? Yeesh! DTIC has several other Human Factors reports.
  10. I just got my first one, on the A15. He does some serious digging. Who is this guy?
  11. Movie director and tank historian! That’s impressive!
  12. Who is this masked author? I purchased this book on the A15 Crusader. https://www.amazon.com/Cruiser-Mk-Vi-Crusader-Technical-History/dp/1326278347/ref=sr_1_2?crid=1OJLM4021KUQX&dchild=1&keywords=p.m.+knight&qid=1599185521&s=books&sprefix=P.m.+kni%2Cdigital-text%2C144&sr=1-2 It’s heavy on the technical side. Is this a real author’s name? The book is great. Sounds like a fake, redundant name: “P.M.” “Knight”
  13. Ken, do you think they could keep their island bases supplied by airlift if they put enough Air Defense on those islands?
