This Day in History, Zulus, etc etc
- Sorry if this is off topic, but the turn of some of the recent discussion
encouraged me to send along these two links:
1st: This Day in Military History --- produced by some historians for the
US Army, so its a bit biased toward American military history (I had to
remind them last year about a little Anglo-Frog tussel that occured on 18
June 1815) but still makes interesting reading on a day to day basis.
2nd: Web Sources for Military History. Simply an excellent site covering
topics from the 16th century to the current war against terrorism. Great
maps from Fred the Great's campaigns during the Seven Years' War, stuff on
the Canucks in WWI, etc etc.
3rd: One of the coolest Victorian/ Zulu War sites I have stumbled
across --- you can read the various accounts written by "Hookie," among
others, and there are great links to various re-enactment units.
