hi, every one. newby here. i thought that id post up my dissertation topic up her for these reasons: a) so as to give me a way of developing my thinking about the topic. images/smilies/default/cool.gif to assure that i am not missing something, that is staring me in the face. c) and, most importantly, to gain your valuable and knowledgeable opinions. the questions which i will be trying to answer is, as follows: why did the german army achieve such a rapid victory in france in 1940? please tell me what you think. also, if you have any good books which you could recommend then post the titles up, and i can see if i have checked them off. so far, i have got 35 books which iv got down as needing to be read. i thought theres more but that swhat iv got at the minute. cheers, and i hope that some interesting discussion will come from this. phil.
