    For those interested in a short look at Vietnam from 1954 on, look here Battlefield:Vietnam | History. It doesn't pretend to be comprehensive, but it should be istructive for our younger members, for whom Vietnam seems like ancient history.

    Now if the Kreigsmarine had just looked at this site in the 30's perhaps things would be different! Oh wait, Al Gore hadn't inveted the internet yet.

    Nevermind :eek:

    The USMC Casualty Cards database-
    "The History Division’s Historical Reference Branch holds casualty cards for World War II, War Dogs, Interwar Period 1946-50, Korea, Interwar Period 1953-1965, and Vietnam. Casualty cards were issued when a Marine was wounded, missing, killed or deemed a prisoner of war. [SIZE=10pt] [/SIZE]
    In an effort to increase patron usage and preserve the historic cards, the branch has digitized them and created a database of the information. The cards and corresponding database are not comprehensive as there are often gaps or omissions. This does not mean that the event (KIA, WIA, etc.) did not happen, just that the branch did not have a card for the event.[SIZE=10pt] [/SIZE]
    While the cards for World War II through Korea are not classified, however, they can often be very graphic."

    "Rare magazines published by service personnel of the First World War are now searchable online in Trench Journals and Unit Magazines of the First World War, providing scholars with a unique resource from which to research alternative perspectives on the conflict. Published by every type of military and support service unit, from every involved nation, trench journals were a means of expression through which men and women engaged in all aspects of World War I could share their thoughts and experiences. By making these magazine discoverable online, Trench Journals and Unit Magazines of the First World War opens up new opportunities for research in multiple fields: literature, history, war studies, cultural studies, and gender studies. Over 1,500 periodicals, drawn from the holdings of major libraries and research collections, including the Imperial War Museums and the British Library, make this resource the most comprehensive collection of trench journals available to scholars anywhere in one place. Take a “museum tour” via the Trench Journals Digital Gallery."
