WWII Internet links used in creating Unbroken Line.

See also: Bibliography from Unbroken Line (recommended excellent resources)

  

Note: These are some links used in 2000-2002. About 40% of the ones used then are not included because they have moved or disappeared, the links broken. Since anyone anywhere can post anything at anytime on the Internet, one is advised to use these and all sites judiciously.

Links in black merely maneuver you around this table. Blue take you out onto the Internet, each one in a pop-up window. REMEMBER: close a pop-up before opening the next one.

NATIONAL ARCHIVES   http://www.nara.gov The editor spent 2 long days in this delightful facility in College Park, MD. There are over 8 million photos total with much of them from WWII. One could spend days or weeks immersed in the photo albums. You can make inexpensive photo-quality copies of source photos yourself or contract with a search company to pull and copy the photos you want. Other repositories around the country have specialized, smaller collections. Not much at all is available online to date.
