WWII On-line References from Center of Military History

Postby JSS » Wed Oct 15, 2003 12:23 am

:arrow: Wanted to post a quick link to good on-line (free) Bastogne references:

Bastogne, The First Eight Days by SLA Marshall
http://www.army.mil/cmh-pg/books/wwii/B ... ast-fm.htm

The Ardennes, The Battle of the Bulge by Hugh M. Cole
http://www.army.mil/cmh-pg/books/wwii/7-8/7-8_cont.htm

Ardennes-Alsace The US Army Campaigns of World War II (Contains several map jpgs which show terrain, roads, and rivers)
http://www.army.mil/cmh-pg/brochures/ardennes/aral.htm

The 501st PIR at Bastogne (Not the best but it does address timelines)
http://www.army.mil/cmh-pg/documents/WW ... RBulge.htm

The central link to these volumes and more on WWII:
http://www.army.mil/cmh-pg/online/Books ... 2-EAME.htm

:arrow: Also among the many excellent volumes the following book is absolutely outstanding as a reference and guided tour to understanding how and why the battle worked out as it did (unfortunately it is now out of print):

Hitler's Last Gamble: The Battle of the Bulge, December 1944-January 1945 by Trevor N. Dupuy

Bringing this one back to the top of the general discussion list to assist the newbies...

Did everyone know there are multiple pages of discussion topics for each area in this BBS??

I will change this post to a sticky.. JSS I think you have Mod access now because you are an SSG tester.. I have no problem with you and other users with Mod access doing this sort of stuff if you want to :) You can flag something as Sticky or an Annoucement by editing the first post in the thread.

Thanks for those links!

I don't suppose any one knows of an equivalent source of information on East Front campaigns?

I noticed on the Center Of Military site there were some books written from the German perspective. I was hoping to find on the opening phases of Barbarossa, but no luck.

Can anyone point me in the right direction?

I check in on http://www.feldgrau.com/ once per month just to check up on some German WWII stuff (more like doing a short refreasher course each time), you might find a whole lot about barbarossa but probably not as one piece of text, more like a puzzle that you have to figure out for yourself.
