Yes, it is only for books that allowed to be published freely.

Also, archive.org has large collection of old books too. And multiple libraries in the world.

Actually, I found that finding copyrighted book in English is relatively hard task. For Russian there is flibusta, it has almost any fiction book, but there is no such big site for other languages. Maybe only libgen and that IRC channel that I forgot.

I find this hard to believe. I knew the name Verne and I remembered the marketing buzz about his adventures (that are supposed to be good). [*] So, many times I tried to rationalise it by saying to myself that perhaps this was Verne's first attempt at storytelling, published a posteriori, already a known author. It really seems like something a modestly gifted 15 year old would write (it's rubbish). But it turns out it's a text from mid-to-late of his publishing life.

[*] In fact I have read a couple of his most famous titles long ago. But it's been so many years (I was basically a child), that I can hardly remember anything about them beyond the main plot. Particularly, I seem to have retained nothing in the order of judgements about the texts or the author.

>shitty English translations...
I didn't read it in English. I read a translation to another Romance language so that it was probably very close to the original.

Military books, the vast majority of which are in Russian. A handful, however, are in English, such as Suvorov's Inside the Soviet Army and Fugate's Operation Barbarossa:
http://militera.lib.ru/research/suvorov12/index.html
http://militera.lib.ru/h/fugate/index.html

The first is an insider's thorough description of the Soviet Army, though he also writes about the ther branches. Suvorov discusses conscription (and draft dodging), training, the life of a soldier and an officer, military education, equipment, mobilization, deployment, organization and hierarchy, doctrine -including nuclear doctrine- and, most interestingly, the USSR's power structure, which he describes as a triumvirate between the Armed Forces, the Party and the intelligence service, and proves his point by narrating the post-Stalin power struggle as a battle between those three forces.
His style is easy to read and at times ironic (pic related). The site has another book of his on Soviet intelligence.

The second is a very assburgerish book on the Eastern front from planning stages to the Battle of Moscow. I found it while researching German invasion plans and haven't read much beyond the first chapter.

What would interest me is the Corvinas. More than 500 years ago Mathias I, King of Hungary had a nice library with about 500 of those books he ordered to be made and were named after him.

Maybe his experience with private data motivates him to support privacy.


Most search engines are a little gimped anyway. Beside DDG I use searx.me but if I want to find anything Hungarain I'm forced to use Google because others just inadequate. I think it's the same with every other nation.

Gnus is pretty bad for email, it is slow and not so good in search, also not so easy because it is NNTP reader first, not email. Something like mu4e is better.

It terms of industry the old Hungary was underdeveloped for most of the time it was valuable by her agricultural products for the Habsburgs. Then in the years of dualism industrial growth became a real thing and it developed dynamically. But chiefly in the resource rich areas, those which were cut off with Trianon. The remaining core was mostly agricultural but it was also plundered in the end of the Hungarian Soviet by the Romanians and also had to pay reparations and was tied by the rules of the peace treaty as I wrote in the Tank Thread somewhere.
The better question Austria. I've no idea. I guess she was also restricted by the Entente in the production of war material but still was better suited than us.

>The multi-turret ones are an atrocity.

Pretty adequate concept for their age. Targets of comparable time didn't had much armor, so there were no need in one big gun, but chassis allowed to carry much more weight. Only after first years of war, when tanks became more armored, big gun became required and having more that one became impossible. Multi-weapon concept didn't really died, for example, IS-7 had 8 machineguns, few facing back. Modern BMOP/BMPT is a good example of classic infantry tank with multiple main weapons.

Multi-turret tanks just arrived too early, I guess we'll see more of these vehicles in future, when automatization will allow to use more guns with few crew.

Interwar doctrines mainly wanted infantry support tanks, some of them were fast and specialized for breakthroughs some of them specialized for heavy support.

It was anti tank brigades duty to finish off the tanks, so that's why they go for multi turret ones. Not to mentioned they werent designed for fast paced warfare, interwar doctrines were really an extension of ww1 doctrines nothing too revolutional about it.

The main downside of multi turrets it's very hard to coordinate several turrets by tank commander assuming tank commander is not same person with loader otherwise it makes the situation is even worse.

Overall coordinating driver, mg and the turret guy is the key to victory in tank warfare.

>The main downside of multi turrets it's very hard to coordinate several turrets

There were also mechanical problems. For example, T-35 almost didn't seen any combat, most of tanks broke before. But T-28, having same problems, had relatively successful action (for outdated old tank). Similar scheme - tank with multiple guns in barbets and sponsons - was used by Americans (M3) with mixed results, but wasn't complete failure.

Another problem was size, multi-turret tanks were big but had less armor than single-turret counterparts.

But overall idea wasn't that bad I think. At least for 30s.

well that's expected, afaik even in ww1 it was fast paced for ww1 standarts.

>But overall idea wasn't that bad I think. At least for 30s.
Things I mentioned above could only understood by experimenting, as idea it wasnt so bad as you said but results wasnt good as expected.

Also deep battle is kinda similar to Turkish Independence War doctrine, though we didnt had tanks we just used cavalries.

Hey dudes, at least post great/useful/whatever websites to keep discussion somewhat ontopic.

Generally good websites are the thing of the past. The more obscure the topic the less likely one will find anything.
The link says "speech". It's over 700 pages. Castro tier. Or the other way around.

How to dl from Scribd?
Once in a year a Hungarian archive of scientific publications (mostly magazines, journals, newspapers) offers an "open day" when everyone can browse freely their documents. No download tho, it's still for paying customers. The viewer app of the site was such that the user could flip through the pages, every page is a separate document in that. So I cleared the Firefox cache (Palemoon has/had different system for that which wasn't that suitable, gave more work for me) opened one document and flipped through all the pages. In the cache I got a bunch of pdf-s which needed to be combined together with a pdf editor program.
Probably there is an easier solution - I guess whoever reads this and has knowledge on the topic is now facepalming hard - but this was what I could come up with at that day. Was an extremely long and boring day. And now I have a bunch of documents which aren't combined together. Good ones tho. More or less.

It's not that long plus I like the book generally because it's pure ideology, he wrote the book after finishing the reforms and the war. This is the reason I regard it highlier than hitler's, lenin's and marx's books.

It was. I did it from early morning to late evening, barely stopped eating, pissing and pooping. It was crazy.

It's available after registering and paying a subscription fee.
Punchline: later turned out a buddy of mine has subscription and can dl whatever he wants and offered me that I could do that with his account.

English version is much smaller than Russian, for example, there are no news. Their stories about Russian happenings may be good, although biased (but there are no unbiased Russian news anyway). Their international news section is pretty bad, they had some agreement with Buzzfeed, so you can imagine content.

>Also I'm looking for russian and ukranian news sites for english speakers.

It is hard to recommend something in English because there are no good sources, RT/Sputnik are targeted to westerners and did not write much about real Russian news. Maybe google translate is the best option.

Don't know about Ukrainian news at all, maybe UNIAN or UNN or something.

Of course not.

But in Russia in last 10 years media landscape lost pretty large amount of ideological diversity. In past you could find different sources from wide range of opinions, from strong pro-/anti-government to neutral and such (although everyone are biased, but bias differs). Now we have no such variety in news sources, they almost all pro-government (some slightly less than others, but not much). They even mostly bundled together in few related media conglomerates.

On other side, "opposition" media mostly died, those who remain also became more biased and lost their quality. Like that Meduza that started relatively well as independent clone of died lenta.ru, but now becomes huffpost/buzzfeed clone with trending articles about "Russian" "rap", feminism and other silly shit.

It is not that bad though. I don't know about Turkey, but there we have pretty big social media community, and most of news comes from it nowadays. Blogs (livejournal is alive here), youtube, twitter, specific forums etc. It is also very biased, filled with payed bots, somewhat censored and controlled by big players, but at least it has quantity, and quantity leads to some variety. For example, official media mostly silences ethnic and migrant crimes (sometimes it looks like we are in Germany), but social media still can discuss it.

And, to be honest, is there are difference between some guy who posts video on youtube and some guy who posts video on youtube and calls himself "journalist"? Second one often just more narcissistic and thinks that he is very significant to humanity, but nothing more. Maybe we are missing large journalist investigations with good quality, but they are rare anyway. "Official" journalism is dying everywhere, US media is a good example of that process.

I don't like how you put it, though, it sounds like amerifat-tier ideological consumerismfreedum
when first-hand facts are not available, instead of 'picking a bias' one is supposed to glean from varied and unavoidably biased sources and distil one's own conclusion
although in most cases it is, that bias doesn't even have to be of sinister or ulterior intent, it simply is, unavoidably, the most one can hope for is honest and bona fide but still biased information

it does seem to me that things like investigative 'journalism' is dying, but it might be that mostly what it's dying is the mythological image of journalists as being much more than cranks and pawns

>it does seem to me that things like investigative 'journalism' is dying...
That one Hungarian news portal I rely on when I nibble for some news to enrich our news thread is definitely lost from it's quality through the years. Decades actually. Not because they write more things I don't agree with - they did always did that - but it's changed how they write, how they draft a text, words they use and such. I'm pretty sure they read too much English news outlets, take and translate way too many sentences and phrases and try to shoehorn them into their own articles. I find more and more sentences un-Hungarian and often came across Anglicisms. They also write in blogging style, overly informal and too opinionated. Sometimes it feels like if they were fugging Maddox, ofc in a more toned down manner but still.
I know they aren't the same people who were doing that job, the most prominent journalists left the company years ago, so the new ones are the lesser quality, less talented.
Also electronic journalism was a mistake.
