Welcome to "The Havoc"

This is an assortment of discombobulated thoughts and writings on stuff.  This website is mainly just to home stuff that I've done that I find interesting, or to house things that I generally find interesting that I didn't write.  If you find it entertaining or useful, that's awesome.  Hopefully you enjoy the site.  I am constantly fine tuning things and adding stuff, so I don't imagine any individual visit will be the same - or if it is, oh well.

Check out the latest news and updates on the site to the right, the rest of the cool stuff is below and all around.  Keep checking back often!

History is just a symphony of different melodies...

Upcoming Streaming Event

Discussion in World War II in aviation often focuses explicitly on the European Theater and the Combined Bomber Offensive against the German Luftwaffe.  This month, as part of the World War II lecture series, we'll be examining strategic bombing in the Pacific Theater up to and including the use of the Atomic Bomb and what such force precluded.

To be streamed via Facebook Live on 10 JUN 2020 at 6:00 pm Central Time, U.S.
