I am proud to announce that I have started a new blog. It is called "The World War II History Guy" and you can find it at: http://sarantakeswwii.blogspot.com/.
The blog is a running diary of sorts about my next two book projects. Both are on World War II. The first is about the battle of Manila and the second is about the U.S. home front, specifically the activities and contributions of the Boy Scouts of America.
The blog is about the writing of these two books rather than on Manila or the BSA. As a result, my expectation is that it should be of interest to other historians, even those that do not share my same research interests. I plan to discuss issues selecting a research topic, audiences, finding images, and so forth.
I hope you will visit it often.
