personally I'd go with one of the major campaigns of the First World War. One thing that I have learnt about dissertations is that the topic has to be on a rather small scale, for example the actions of a specific regiment in a specific campaign. For example the role of the parachute regiment in Ar...

Salford is a very very dreary place, glad I only have to spend 3/4 years here. I'd go insane otherwise, although Salford University is far from the best university in the country, it does have a certain charm..... who am I kidding, it's bloody horrible. :lol: But then again it's the people who make ...

Frank, I've only just started reading that 4th/5th Generation Warfare article, and it's a bloody amazing read. The methods that it reveals are nothing like I could of ever imagined.

On a brief side note, thought you guys might be interested to hear that one of the new Lecturers that has just started doing a module based on the origins of both World Wars is a retired Royal Marine Officer. I doubt it's a coincidence that his lectures just happen to be the most helpful and upbeat ...

Still a work in process. Frank, I've yet to go into more detail on your mention about the Soviet's isolating themselves from the Afghan people due to a lack of sources. I'll get there eventually. :D Argument 2 <External Influence - Operation Cyclone Argument 2.5Combined with Guerilla Warfare and Geo...

In all honestly I can't really see the police being too bothered about a guy trying to rob your bike. You'd have to hold him for quite a while aswell until the police came, leaving you open for his mates who are just waiting around the corner to come and give you a beating. Next time I suggest you j...

Thanks for the help Frank, I've read up on the Butterfly mines in the past, must of slipped my mind. Should be a good addition to my 'Reforms and Popular support' argument. Although as the Yellow rain theory is only that theory, I probebly wont be able to put up as an argument. True, Felias. The Sov...
