This site is now closed. For the most part I'm confident in the page's accuracy, but I realize it's hardly objective or even comprehensive.
Keep in mind I made this page when I was 20, and it was built entirely from scratch as a collection of handwritten notes. Long story short, in the late 90s (before Wikipedia), I needed an online outlet for my interest in WWII.
After I finished my European military history class, I took my
WWII notes and decided to type them up so I had a neat
version for future reference. As I was
typing, I began expanding my notes and even taking more
notes from books in the bookstore where I used to work. Eventually I
decided to write an entire summary of the European Theater
in WWII and put it on a web site so I and other people
could access it. Everything on this page is my
own design, and the intent was to create a simple web
site with enough information to keep you interested but
not turn it into complicated maze of history. The information comes from dozens of WWII books, magazines, documentaries, articles or other
sources which I have condensed into a summary, facts, biographies, etc. This is why I haven't added footnotes, but many of the books I used are in the "recommended reading" section. None of this
is intended to be definitive, but I certainly haven't put anything in
here that didn't come from a reliable source. This also means none of the information is based from the internet. I have always based it on published information, and used more than one source whenever possible. I'd hoped to put much more on this page, but after several years without updates, I consider this page to be finished and a monument to my early interest in WWII. Thank you.
