Last Update: January 10, 2005

  • Back from the dead!
  • Added some random new stuff.

Next Update:

  • Propaganda - addition of propaganda posters and advertisements from numerous countries, and possibly propaganda movies.

  • Art of World War II - artwork inspired by the Second World War.

  • Images - pictures of Auschwitz-Birkenau and the Normandy beaches as they appear today, and the addition of more period photographs.

  • Airborne Infantry - I am working on adding my senior thesis to the site, most likely in pdf format. It is a 90 page paper entitled 'The Advent and Evolution of the American Airborne Infantry," and follows the history of airborne infantry through the Normandy landings.

  • Links - in the process of compiling a new list. Link suggestions are welcome.

  • Search - a comprehensive search engine that will allow searching of my entire site and its content.

General Information:

This site does not endorse nor accept Nazi, Neo-Nazi, racist, or other intolerant views. The views reflected in the propaganda posters do not neccesarily reflect the views of the site owner. They are presented for educational purposes only.

All of the pictures located within this site are available for personal or educational use.

If you wish to cite any of my essays, please feel free to do so with proper citation. My papers have been plagarised in the past, but I can do nothing to stop this. Please do not ask me to remove my essays because one of your students has copied one--I just provide information, and what foolish people do with it is not my concern. That being said, judging by the number of times I have been contacted about plagarism, it apparently isn't too difficult to nab people for copying my work.

Iif you are doing a research project on WW II, please do not ask me for general information. If it is something obscure, I can understand, and I will do my best to reply. But questions like "can you please tell me what happened in the Pacific during 1942?" or "when was Hitler born?" will most likely warrant an unpleasant reply from me. Use the library, and do your own work. The internet an unreliable source of information--use it only as a secondary source. Of course, you can't trust everything you read in the library either, but it's a lot more trustworthy.

I run this site in my free time as a hobby. I am enrolled in the Amazon Associates program to help defray the costs of the site, so please use the links provided on the Suggested Books page.
