The History of War audience

The Enthusiast

The Enthusiast

The Enthusiast might painstakingly recreate whole battlefields on flock, or just pick the Tank Museum over the Imperial War Museum ever time. They're less interested in why men went to war and more interested in what they drove and how it performed in battle.

The Patriot

The Patriot

The Patriot is emotionally engaged by sacrifice, heroism and duty, they watch the Invictus Games, have a Help For Heroes bumper sticker and silence James Blunt criticism with leaden comments about his spotless military record.

The Student

The Student

The Student is literally studying for a degree in history or military history, perhaps with a specialist focus like the Franco-Prussian War. They're passionate about learning for its own sake and get distracted on wikipedia trying to work out where the Frisians came from.
