The History Addict was briefly assigned to Company A, 1/506th Infantry, 101st Airborne Division, the "Currahees," way back in The Day, and tries to keep up with the happenings of that proud regiment.

For information on the current assignment and more news of the Currahees, go to the 506th Infantry Regiment (Airborne) page.

The staff at HistoryAddict.com world headquarters is a bit busy right now, but more content is being collected and coded.

Has anyone else here ever noticed just how long the Achaemenids have been running amuck, while the rest of us are trying to study?

It hasn't helped matters that the Carthaginians have only recently stopped running amock as well - perhaps it would have helped if Appius Claudius had possessed F/B-111's.

(That last comment was a simply hilarius, if somewhat obscure joke. Trust me, you would really appreciate it if you had the slightest idea of what I was talking about)

So, what is a/the History Addict?

1. "A" History Addict is one who lives, breathes, eats, reads, and otherwise exists for anything and everything historical. The History Channel®; is the drug of choice for such addicts, although it tends to increase rather than subdue the addiction!

2. "The" HistoryAddict is a personal-interest/hobbiest type website, exploring such random subjects and lame attempts at humor that strikes the webmaster's fancy. It also serves as a crass commercial web presence for said webmaster. Many things military, especially U.S. Army Airborne and U.S. Civil War topics, strike his fancy on a regular basis, as you may note.

3. "The" HistoryAddict is also the nom de plume of the webmaster of this site himself.
