WW2DB's Fifth Anniversary
The World War II Database is celebrating its fifth birthday today! As the site content grew steadily, so had our readership in the past year, which more than doubled. Below is a quick summary of what you can find on the website as of today, with the growth since last anniversary in parenthesis.
- 540 biographies (+57)
- 220 events (+11)
- 523 ships (+48)
- 208 aircraft models (+1)
- 101 vehicle models (new section)
- 205 weapon models (+15)
- 33 historical documents (+11)
- 136 books reviewed (+31)
- 7,838 photos (+1,908), 866 in color (+173)
- 3,371 visitor comments (+1,735)
In terms of expansions into new territory, 2009 saw the new vehicles section being established after a year or two of work as well as the expansion of the WW2DB community through Facebook and Twitter. There might be a lot of growth and a lot of changes at WW2DB as always, but one thing remains the same: The site can only do so because of the great material from the team of contributors and the active support of the site's visitors. Thank you all for yet another great year, and hope everyone will have a healthy and prosperous 2010!
