About this Goldstar (comics) story,"Booster Gold found her in Coast City and brought her back to the present; however, her boyfriend Drew died in Coast City's destruction. Afterward, Michelle is about to return to the 25th century and is stopped by her brother, Booster Gold."

However, I need add about Booster Gold to convinces he's sister; Michelle, to stay after Booster Gold's compassion and loss. When Michelle was anger.-Nteinkvnc (talk) 3:44, 25 April 2011 (UTC)

Pacific Command[edit]


You have reverted my edit and added FDR and Truman as "commanders" even though they did not directly command the theater. Yes they were c-in-c of American forces but it was the military commanders who had the most say tactically. Cheers! (Central Data Bank (talk))

Fedden Mission and the Daimler-Benz DB 604[edit]

The only ducmented attempt by the Daimler-Benz aviation engine division to build an "X-layout" inline aircraft engine WAS the Daimler-Benz DB 604...using four banks of six cylinders each, it simply didn't seem to have been a "priority" for the RLM, nor the Luftwaffe's needs at the time it was dropped...but as the only "X-engine" project of the Daimler-Benz firm for aviation use, a "process of elimination" isolates the DB 604 project as being the most likely one that the Fedden Mission had examined.

A photo of that complex DB 604 aviation mill can be found here...hope it's of some help!

Two FLIGHTGLOBAL links from the past to provide that link, FROM an article AUTHORED by Sir Roy HIMSELF ...

Page one of Sir Roy Fedden's OWN mention of the DB 604 mill...

And Page TWO from that same article, following the one with the photo! 3 and Page 4 of the article, concluding with its Page 5 for the finish!

Hope these might be of help with Fedden & the DB 604...

Pacific War citations[edit]

Hello, Trekphiler!

I'm raw at this stuff and a bit confused at what you mean. When you ask 'add to Hara cite,' do you want me to create a footnote and list each ship? I could do that if necessary. Thanks for you time.

Sincerely, The Pittsburgher (talk) 16:43, 26 July 2015 (UTC)

Thanks for the message. Holding the book in my hands, it appears I made an error in the date. The English translation was copyrighted in 1961, while the Japanese version was copyrighted in '67. The Naval Institute Press paperback edition (mine, depicting the embattled Hiei on the front cover) was published in 2011, which is what I'm going to change the citation to. Other than that, your changes fit the bill. As a side note, the table for IJN warship losses appears on page 297 in the Google Books edition in a badly scrambled preview, though if necessary I can cite another source.
Sincerely, The Pittsburgher (talk) 16:43, 26 July 2015 (UTC)
Thanks again for the help, Trekphiler. Hara's book does in fact have a tabulation of USN losses (on the same page), though it doesn't cover all categories of shipping like the IJN table does, nor does it provide mention of other Allied losses. For those reasons I relied on other sources for that topic.
Sincerely, The Pittsburgher (talk) 22:39, 26 July 2015 (UTC)
So do you think I should delete or move the ship/air losses elsewhere? (Apologies for clogging up your talk page...) Considering a large part of the Pacific War was naval combat, wouldn't it be useful to have the figures presented right next to each other where people can see them? Although it was a 'scary' amount of work, the numbers referenced actually do correspond to the combined losses of all major naval powers during the war (excluding the Chinese, who lost several cruisers and smaller ships in '37 and later).
