What is World War II Today?
World War II Today is my personal exploration of daily events in the 1939 – 1945 World War.
World War II Today presents what happened on the day, seventy years ago. It focuses on individual incidents and experiences, rather than attempting a complete narrative history. So the history of the Second World War emerges with the progress of time. Wherever possible links are provided where a proper context can be found, either on another site or to a related book.
I have not provided individual links to topics on the most obvious sites such as Wikipedia, or the BBC, where you can find a fuller historical context. I try to provide as many links as possible to sites that deal with particular aspects of the war, these can be found on the individual daily entries to which they relate.
