The World War II Database was a project created by C. Peter Chen (Syracuse University) to compile a variety of WWII photographs and notes. The project quickly grew to include content that allowed connections between people, photographs, events, and other bits of history to emerge. The database now contains blogs, introductory articles to World War II, people, events, equipment, countries, books, photos, reference materials, book reviews, and other resources. The database also contains news and quotes about World War II. The site is very easy to use; organized with tabular menus and associated links.
