Hello, All;

This may not be news to everyone here, but it was to me:

www.archive.org

Some simple searches, and some detailed things you can download free.

General example 1; "Sherman Tank":

https://archive.org/search.php?query=sherman%20tank

General example 2; "World War Two":

https://archive.org/search.php?query=world%20war%20two

(seriously, over 54,000 texts? ... wow!)

Detail example 3; Astronaut Deke Slayton in WW2:

https://archive.org/details/GPN-2004-00028

Detail example 4; US training aid:

https://archive.org/details/ThePunchBelowTheBelt

(not currently politically correct, but it shows the things we tried to impart to soldiers).

Detail example 5; another old book from the era:

https://archive.org/details/Page000

(it's a slide-show, too)

And lastly, what you all need and want (Bitly link for brevity):

http://bit.ly/2aoYtAj

200 issues of "The General" from Avalon Hill.


Plug in your own preferred search terms, do some filtering, and then be prepared to download vast amounts of data and files.

Jeff
