I'm sure they're all over the internet for sale, but I was wondering if anyone knew of a respected website that sells copies of old WWII field manuals, primarily for rifle platoons, squad tactics, and anything relating to B-17s.

Any links or suggestions would be of great help.

Quite a few manuals here:
Scanned manuals on ammunition and weapons.

Helmet manuals (How much manual does a lid need?!):
Helmet manuals index

Loads more:
Biggerhammer.net - Miscellaneous Firearms Technical and Training Manuals

Fair few British Manuals:
Weapons OnLine

I'm guessing you've seen:
Zeno's Warbird Video Drive-In - World War 2 airplane videos playing live online
There used to be a fair few aircraft manuals hidden on there for free viewing

The bookshelves section of the US Army military history site is worth a look for training and doctrine material too:
Online Bookshelves
as is the field artillery journal:
FAMAG_Archives
(not specifically manuals but definitely used for disseminating training ideas and current thinking to the troops.)

Cheers,
