One of the best ways to actually study Military History is to recreate it in miniature. We are called wargamers. There are hundreds of vendors and suppliers out there that make thousands of different figures and rule sets for any period of history you are interested in. I can guarantee you that your interests are represented out there. Figures come in sized from 2mm (tiny tiny) to 54mm and beyond. The most common scales for historical gaming is 15mm (1/2" figure tall) and 25mm (1" figure tall). My favorite historical period to wargame is the War Between the States in 15mm and my favorite science fiction system is Warhammer 40k in 28mm. Course I do everything else too to some extent much to my wife's chagrin...<grin>
