The webmaster of this site, like most people, has a very lengthy list of favorite websites.

The following are singled out not only because they have been helpful personally (in learning and writing about naval warfare during World War II), but also because of the quantity and quality of the information, documentation, photographs, etc., found on these sites.

Aviation Enthusiast Corner: Excellent source of information on aircraft (domestic and foreign, historical and modern) and aviation museums.

Historic Naval Ships Association: Site with information on the 180+ preserved U.S. Navy and other ships (located both in the U.S.A. and a number of other countries). Also has an extensive “Knowledge Base” containing manuals, documents, ship plans and other naval information.
