Generally speaking, your writers do a good job. However, in this month’s magazine of WORLD WAR II that my Uncle sent to me, there are mistakes in both articles that I have read. Simple mistakes. Your writers should KNOW BETTER! I have spent four years in the US Navy and three in the Beloved Marines and want to say your writers don’t know the difference between a CLIP and a MAGAZINE! The one story about the USS Hornet and claimed the 20 mm ammo was in CLIPS! Then, in the story of the BAR, they claim the ammo was also in CLIPS! Don’t they KNOW the difference between MAGAZINES and CLIPS?????? Or in the case of the 20 mm MAYBE in belts or Magazines but CERTAINLY NOT IN CLIPS!
Maybe I’m a bit “picky” because I am also a military writer about the Korean War but if a person does not KNOW the subject, he should not be writing about it!
I expect an answer on this subject.
