17 February 2003

Over the last few months we've been working on a new, multi-dimensional system of categorizing WWII-related books into thousands of specific subject categories and inter-linking all those categories to make it easy to find books about any topic. The job is far from complete, but we've reached the point where we're ready to offer a preview of the new subjects system. Constructive suggestions are welcome while we continue to create new categories, load books, and link related categories for rapid browsing.

Editor's pick
13 February 2003

Sometimes when we run across an interesting/unusual/informative book, especially an old and out-of-print one, we like to bring it to your attention.

Perry, F. W. Commonwealth Armies: Manpower and Organization in Two World Wars. Manchester: Manchester University Press, 1988

The late Dr. Perry's book surveys the armies of the UK, India, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, South Africa, and assorted colonial forces in both world wars and presents information and conclusions about their overall war-making capabilities. Very good work, and includes material about such obscure formations as the British Caribbean Regiment in WWII. Dr. Perry also authored an unpublished manuscript, The Armies of the Commonwealth, the only copy of which languishes in the Imperial War Museum in London. It dives much deeper into the same waters, but—alas—seems to be accessible only by visiting the IWM. Having examined the ms there, we can only hope that someone eventually publishes it.
