There are now hundreds, if not thousands, of sites containing information about Military History & Historical Research tools and technology.  I have spent hundreds of hours surfing the web searching and looking at all these sites trying to find the best ones - sites that contain useful information; have been around for a while; are high quality, and are regularly updated.  I have selected and put links to these sites on this web site to save others from having to spend a lot of their time repeating the same process I have gone through. I hope you find this site useful and it is my intention is to keep improving it over time.

Free and open source software (FOSS) is no longer an oddity. It is now being used by 80% of organizations around the world and the movement continues to grow. In essence, 'the war is over'. As a result, support for this site will now start to diminish as it is no longer needed.  -  Peter Groen
