Hello everyone, I'm new here! I'm Daniel and I'm from sunny Southern Italy. It's great to find such an interesting community. I'm not an expert in military history, but I'm an avid reader of stories about great battles and intense wars. I'm a Wikipedian, and my interest started there, since the Military History project on that site is one of the best around, with a great number of very passionate and knowledgeable editors. Articles regarding battles and wars are almost all really well-written and based on reliable sources. Long story short, one article at a time I started to be fascinated by the stories of those battles, finding out that you can feel almost like watching the plot of a movie as you read. I also started to feel a great interest for the human side of things. It's one of the few situations in which you see men constantly face danger and defy it, and it's astonishing to put yourself in their shoes and see how your heart reacts to the risk of death on one side, and the camaraderie and ideologies you fight for on the other. Thank you, Peter, for your kind welcome! I think I'll feel right at home here!
