"We are the ANZAZ Army!
The A-N-Z-A-C!
We cannot shoot,
We don't salute,
What bloody good are we!?"

One of my favorite WW1 tidbits...a marching song from the ANZACs on their way to Gallipoli.
That class had to rock pretty hard.  I'd love to get more of an opportunity to study australia.

Historians and RPGs seem to go together :) My current gaming group has 2 history majors, and my previous group had a history major who now teaches high school history.

Spike:
That makes me the big loser here... I only like history for fun and amateur study, not for a degree program.

Still... at least this thread serves as adaquet notice that I should NOT attempt to comment in the least bit authoratatively on ANY historical topic.  God forbid that I forget the Hittites had pointed toed shoes or something...;)

Just for clarification, I believe that pointed toed shoes were more characteristic of the Middle Hittite Kingdom (ca. 1500–1430 BC).  The New Hittite Kingdom (the Hittite Empire proper, ca. 1430–1180 BC) saw the rise of the square toed shoe in the ancient Near East.  By the period of the Neo-Hittite city-states of the of the 8th century BC this process was complete, and the wearing of pointed toes shoes had died out...

Naw, I'm just fucking with you.:D People who get too serious about the trivia of history annoy the living shit out of me.  I have known far too many Napoleonic miniatures wargamers who argue about button colors...
