Total War Bibliography Section

Musashi and Yamato Bibliography

Warships of the World-this site helped with providing the history, and the bulletin boards helped me to get a little more specific. It also provided me with the pictures used.

USS New York Bibliography

Special thanks to: Gail Maize and Terry Carter for getting me started on this project. Also thanks to David Carter for his letters home, which were also a source in this report.

Hyperwar, Warships of the World, and Dictionary of American Naval Fighting Ships all had the same information, so unfortunately I don't have a second source that was unique, but all of these had the basis of my history. The picture used for the USS New York was from Warships of the World.

World War Two Picture Archives-This has a great amount of USS New York Pictures, not to mention others.

USS Iowa Bibliography

USS Iowa Veterans Association-An excellent site with a VERY detailed timeline. The webmaster also proved to be helpful, and allowed me to use the picture from his site.

Warships of the World-This website had a timeline outlining major actions, but also had excellent weapons detail.

USS Iowa and links to Iowa-Class sites-Contains information on the current status of the USS Iowa, as well as the Iowa-class battleships.

USS Cushing's III and IV Bibliography

USS Cushing Reunion Association-This site has an excellent report on the Cushings.

Dictionary of American Naval Fighting Ships-This site has a second report used to both verify and add to my information.

Kriegsmarine bibliography

Power At Sea-In German. This site has EXCELLENT coverage of all the German Kriegsmarine of World War II.

The German Kriegsmarine-This site is the one maintained by Michael Emmerich, which has moved to its new location. This site is DEFINITELY worth checking out.

Kais's Kriegsmarine Listing-This site offered a little help and has good information on everything from the surface raiders up to the Bismarck and Tirpitz.

U-Boat Bibliographies

Uboat.Net This is the greatest, and possibly the only, website with histories and information on ALL the U-Boats. This is certainly the only one with all histories on the internet. I enjoy this a lot, and the webmaster has been VERY helpful in allowing me to use the information, so I tried extremely hard to find extra information on the U-Boats.

Torpedo Junction: U-boat war off America's east Coast, 1942 by Homer H. Hickam, Jr. This book has it ALL for U-boats of 1942, at the peak of the U-boats success. This book is excellent, although I didn't use it in the U-505, since the ship isn't even mentioned in it. Future projects will use more of this book though.

U-505 and the Museum of Science and Industry-I am not sure if this is the same article I had before. I used a two page article which held all the information, but when I went back to the bookmarked page, it moved, along with the WHOLE Museum of Science and Industry. I backtracked through U-boat.Net, and the page had actually moved. I found this, and am ASSUMING it to be the same thing. So maybe you should check it out. It looks pretty nice though. I will check more later.

USS Kearny: First to Come, Last to Go-I know, I know. "What does this have to do with U-Boats?" My compliments to the webmaster...this man researched the history of U568 thoroughly from start to finish, providing information about the boat which torpedoed the topic of his interest. A very nice site, and a WONDERFUL source for information. U568 history on is short, but concise, and accurate as well.

Pearl Harbor Bibliography

This is one of the main sites that helped me gather information on ships involved.

The History Place-A really good site on World War Two. Also has a good and detailed timeline.

Coral Sea Bibliography

Warships of the World-This site provided some information as to ships, most of which came from the Bulletin boards. Also, thanks to Shigure (the person, not the ship....just a bulletin board name) for all the help, and all the others. CBW, Tiornu, and others were a major role in setting up thie section, but I couldn't do it without them. Thanks to all of you...wherever you are.
