Useful resource

Post by gordograd » 05 Aug 2018, 07:53

I suspect that many will have already found this link, but I’ve only just stumbled across this website.

https://history.army.mil/html/bookshelv ... saww2.html

These are scans of the official histories with some interesting topics (e.g use of negro troops and the Persia Iraq supply line). Of particular interest are the pictorial records which appear to have all the photos from the other books. Some familiar shots but lots of pics of rear area troops; engineers medics etc. and ariel views of terrain.

Some light summer reading.

Looks useful, thanks
What's the point of doing one period, when you can do them all.......... In life most people specialise so gradually they know more and more about less and less so eventually they know everything about nothing. I work on a broad front so eventually I'll know nothing about everything.

Thanks for the link. Just downloaded the D-day and Bulge volumes for a read through.

Cheers, Andy
