Atom Bomb Decision
On August 6 and 9, 1945, the cities of Hiroshima and Nagasaki were destroyed by the first atomic bombs used in warfare. Documents on the decision to use the atomic bomb are reproduced here in full-text form. In most cases, the originals are in the U.S. National Archives. Other aspects of the decision are shown from accounts of the participants. This page was new May 29, 1995, and it was last updated July 27, 1998.
Heavy Bombers
Heavy Bombers is intended to link AAF Bomb Groups together and be used as a resource for those seeking to learn about this rich history.
Could The Allies Have Bombed Auschwitz-Birkenau?

One of the longstanding controversies about World War II regards the question of whether the Allies could have and should have bombed Auschwitz. In his seminal work, The Abandonment of the Jews, David Wyman argued that the failure to bomb the camp was a result of the Allies' indifference to the fate of the Jews rather than the practical impossibility of the operation. Several recent studies have suggested that it was not possible to bomb, however, in perhaps the most exhaustive analysis of the issue, Stuart Erdheim proves otherwise.

Holocaust Timeline
This site provides a chronological view of the events leading up to, and during World War II.
Women Come to the Front
World War II opened a new chapter in the lives of Depression-weary Americans. As husbands and fathers, sons and brothers shipped out to fight in Europe and the Pacific, millions of women marched into factories, offices, and military bases to work in paying jobs and in roles reserved for men in peacetime.
World War II, Government Propaganda Posters
The posters displayed here were comissioned by government entities such as the branches of the armed forces, recruiting bureaus, the Office of War Information, and the United States Treasury, to name a few. Patriotic in nature, these posters were supposed to stir up pro-American feelings, and help mobilize citizens to support the War movement.
In Memory of World War II
This is a place where political differences should not exist; a place where soldiers and civilians, friend or foe alike are able to share their experiences of the war. Only by setting aside past differences may we learn to work together for a better future.
