This is a pretty good documentary on one of the hardest battles of the SW Pacific, the Kokoda Trail, in New Guinea. Not well known among Americans, since it was fought by Australians, though under command of Gen. MacArthur. Neither MacArthur nor his Australian counterpart, Gen. Blamey, come out looking too good.
One of the really good points about this video is that they have several Japanese survivors of the battle and they give them a fair share of air time to talk about their experiences. They use a lot of reenactment footage, but they're very well done.

Dracul: It looks like it lost a lot of steam and I now feel bad for randomly dropping off.

stuka: I mean it's not your fault. It is interesting though that things are falling off as we are finally getting our ww2 guns with the type 38/96 and the enfield as well as it recieving a new loading system, it's kind of unfortunate

Dracul: I don't know, maybe its because all the guns are becoming available, there is a decreasing need for the forums.

Dracul: Most of the talk was about making guns, as all the uniform info was already out there, but now the weapons are out there and are usually decent quality.

stuka: well the forum is and should still be useful for updates on guns, creating groups/events and building kits

Dracul: I think Redwolf has a Enfield. If not or not longer, then not until G&G releases theirs. The old gas Iron Airsoft brand SMLE isn't carried by anyone anymore and was such piece of crap. Not worth trying to track one down.
