  • The Life and Legacy of Donn F Draeger

    I have placed this here, because I think it impacts upon how we view Armour in the 21st Century.

    Many here will know the name of Donn F Draeger (1922 - 1982)

    For those who do not : https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Donn_F._Draeger

    Last week in Tokyo, a group of his close associates got together to present a number of insights into the man.

    Here is the first by Hunter "Chip" Armstrong (International Hoplology Society):

    There will be more videos in the next few weeks.

    There is also a Facebook page entitled The Life and Legacy of Donn F Draeger

    Started to bite on this, but not sure if my teeth are strong enough to pull away a small chunk.
