    World War II unit histories & officers

    This website aims to give a full spectrum of data on World War II fighting units, including details on organization, commanders, and literature. All units from different countries can be included in due time. When we can find the time, and get enough response from enthusiast people who like to contribute to the site with information, scans etc., this site could grow into a marvelous reference work on World War II military history.

    I have another list, but thought this one should stand on its own.

    Bumping this thread as I've noticed many newer members who may be interested in some of the links, or who may have ones to add.
