Soviet Military History and the Forum

Discussing History

Several threads on this forum have recently gone off their original topic and into the realm of Soviet military history. There is nothing really wrong with this. However, we should ensure that such discussions stay generally relevant to the issue of Soviet Awards. Though, since most awards were given by the military (or a state representative on their behalf) and for military actions, a discussion of wider military history issues is in most cases definitely related to the main purpose of this forum.

However, there have recently been many accusations flying around about these topics. Some people feel that old myths and errors are being perpetuated, others feel that legitimate views are being stifled. Some argue that people write about dumb ideas, while others say that elitists are taking over and bashing down others. There are truths to all of these views. In order to foster further interesting, educational and constructive debate and discussion while hopefully limiting bad feelings, insults and wholly unsuitable digressions I am submitting some views here about history in general and its possible role on this forum.
