    Jakob Nielsen, a researcher and expert in human-machine interaction at the Technical University of Copenhagen, found that almost 80 percent of a web site's visitors scanned the page rather than reading it line by line. They spent their first fractions of a second on the page deciding if it was worth their time.

  • Rojn shared from The Red Army in Combat 1941-1945 (Eastern Front from Primary Sources) by Bob Carruthers
    The Russians have proved that there is a definite place for horse cavalry in battle, despite the wide use of mechanized forces and airplanes in modern warfare. By operating at night, cavalry avoids attack by aircraft, and moves, dismounts, and strikes with much more surprise than during daylight hours.

  • Rojn shared from Panzers At War 1943 - 1945 (Hitler's War Machine) by Bob Carruthers
    The city of Caen, which should have been in Allied hands on D-Day plus one, was to remain in German hands until 18th July, six weeks after the beginning of the battle. The reasons for the successful defence at Caen lay in the extremely difficult nature of the Bocage country in which the campaign was fought. The Bocage was a closely packed area of narrow lanes and high-banked hedgerows enclosing small fields and sunken lanes. It proved to be ideal defensive terrain where anti-tank guns and machine-gun nests could be concealed until the last possible moment.
    Note: city of Caen on D-Day 1944.
