War Diary
19 August 2000

Graham Palmer continues to make improvements to what has already become the finest day-by-day chronology of the Second World War on the Web.

Each and every day Graham reveals the latest sixtieth anniversary date of the war. Each newly revealed date contains several entries about the day's events with accompanying photographs and links to relevant books.

In addition, Graham's War Diary offers the ability to jump directly to any date during the war, and to search for key words and find every date on which that term appears. For example, using "molders" to search for Luftwaffe fighter ace Werner Molders will find entries for him on 5 June 1940 (when he was shot down) and 28 July 1940 (when he crash landed after tangling with "Sailor" Malan).

This is a terrific feature that Graham offers to visitors free of charge, and one of the things that makes the Web such a valuable resource.
