    I rarely use online sources for WW2, much prefer thumbing my various tombes and finding valid arguments there.

    Oh god, I knew it was coming but still, really? We are 'historians' after all!

    And yes that does sound like one of my lecturers, they have infiltrated my mind

    Wikipedia's a decent starting point, and is a good place to get the basic facts from as well as providing a lot of points of inspiration you might not have thought of otherwise.

    And come on, "historians"? I've seen maybe three texts referenced in peoples' arguments on this sub-forum so far.
    Doltmarines, for the Emprah: the place to play Dawn of War: Soulstorm

    Blood and Balls: come and play Blood Bowl in the RelicNews Doltathon!

    I am studying to be a historian, and I strive to always mention books I have mentioned in this sub forum. As I said above, in this very thread, I rarely/dont use internet sources.

    Not saying you shouldn't, provided it's a credible source! When it comes to the basic facts you can usually rely on Wikipedia to be sound.

    Good on you studying history though, it was part of my Joint Honours degree. Which year are you in (I'm making the assumption that you're at uni)?

    Not reading it right now, but I can recommend Richard Overy's 'The Dictators' for a really thorough look at Nazi Germany and Stalinist Russia.

    Indeed I am, in my second year, so it counts, but yet unsuprisingly my post count has shot up on this forum... Yeah I will make sure I read that. I love any type of history really. Well I say any, anything post 19th century.

    Considering the thread's usefulness, I've decided to sticky it. Hopefully it doesn't suffer from "invisible sticky syndrome" in the future!

    "Anyone who recuits five new members into the Party gets to leave it. Anyone who recruits ten new members gets a certificate testifying that he was never in the Party."

    Joke between German soldiers (mid 1943 and afterwards).

    This site has a nice collection of images: World War II in Color
    There are a lot of categories like Australian, Canadian Forces and not just German, US or Russian.

    This is a collection from Rutgers University of oral history interviews done with soldiers from various wars, starting with WW2: http://oralhistory.rutgers.edu/

    Also,t he Australians at War archive, a huge archive of over 2000 interviews with Australian servicemen from most 20th century conflcts: http://www.australiansatwarfilmarchi...wfa/index.html

    @Bowkers, while I understand your reluctance to trust the internet, as a PhD student and marker of undergrad work, Wikipedia is good for dates and numbers, just not interpretations. IE don't cite it in your essays, but as reference, it's (generally) fine.

    I'll post more as I think of them.
