My name is Ron Kloth and I started WorldWar2.Blog because I wanted to provide an informative history blog of World War 2.
I’ve been interested in WWII history since even before elementary school. My Dad was in the navy in World War II in the Pacific and also was in the Korean War and I grew up hearing of his stories. I remember asking for a camouflaged bike for my Christmas gift when I was in Kindergarten and when others were drawing pictures of who knows what I was drawing pictures of B-17’s, P-51’s and Messerschmidt 262’s. I grew up watching Combat, 12 O’Clock High, Garrison’s Guerillas, Hogan’s Heroes and of course all the great movies, The Great Escape, The Longest Day, 633 Squadron, The Bridge at Remagen, The Dam Busters, The Bridge on the River Kwai, and of course later ones like Tora, Tora, Tora, Midway, The Battle of Britain, A Bridge Too Far, Saving Private Ryan and the television miniseries Band of Brothers and The Pacific.
Over 5 decades later and I am still interested in it.
I’ve visited many WWII sites abroad. Pearl Harbor, London, Normandy, Bastogne, Arnhem, Remagen, Berlin, and the eagle’s nest to name a few.
I moved to Garmisch-Partenkirchen in Germany in 2018. From here I can use this beautiful location as a home-base to explore the many historic World War 2 sites in Europe.
