Military.

I enjoy exploring the tactical and strategical aspects of warfare.

Sorry, missed the alternatives in my first reply! Cultural, but otherwise maritime history and the interactions between Europeans and people of other parts of the world, especially in the Far East, so doesn't really fit into any of those categories.

Torn between the last three, but I think cultural history has been my most abiding favourite, especially the history of science and art.

Military was always the important part of history for me, but I have evolved I guess, and the others are very important to me.

I guess what interests me the most is the way all of those categories interplay off of each other. (Yeah, I know, cop-out answer. So I'll choose biographies)

Airfix Waterloo I spent so much time with a craft knife and clay trying to make the limited sets of figures represent all the different units of Napoleonic armies. I was quite pleased with my Polish Lancers, I seem to recall...
