Pb, I can see your answer in the Spanish Civil War quiz thread with no problems and it is the correct answer. So now you have two questions pending, one for this thread and one for the SCW quiz thread. Your turn on both threads!
Regards.

I used to think "other eras" meant "pre-WWI" in this thread (as this is the Pre-WWI section of the forum and there are already an quiz threads for other eras in their respective sections)...

hi, Ironmachine,

I see .. yes, you are right, this question belongs to the Cold War section.

Another one coming up soon ..

An allied fleet of three nations with 11 battleships (3+4+4) gained a tremendous victory ... where and when ?
