    Does anyone know when the next copy of An Cosantóir is out. Can you still get it at Easons?

      Hi all,
      The British did conduct extensive interviews with the German High Command, many of which were conducted by the late Hugh Trevor-Roper, he of the bogus Hitler diaries fame. The British also secretly recorded the PoW camp discussions/chat/rants/diatribes,etc,etc of many of the German Generals so they were quite aware of how the Germans thought. I agree that it was a coup for the Cosantoir, fair enough, but I also think that after six years of combat, perhaps the British felt no further need to talk to German soldiers.
      If you think I have an inferiority complex about the British, in general as a race or in particular as a military, then you are barking up the wrong tree on that one. I have,as I've stated here before, the height of respect for them on both counts. They,as soldiers, are absolute professionals and, in my experience, could teach the Irish Military a few tricks any day. Certainly, any that I met visiting Baldonnel were a credit to their Arm.

        Thank you, GTTC,

        I hope you will agree if you find time to peruse the back copies of An Cosantóir that it is an excellent professional Journal and a credit to all associated with it down the years. Apparently in the early days it was a totally voluntary effort - all credit to them.

        I am looking forward very much to the next issue out any day soon - I am sure that there will be fascinating articles.
