WW2DB's Seventh Anniversary
Another year has passed, and I am happy to continue to report that both the content and the audience of WW2DB has grown since our last anniversary. From me, I want to thank both the visitors of the website, as well as the WW2DB contributor team that had always been willing to stand behind the curtain to help with their research, their writings, and their inspiration and support. Dave, Alan, Bryan, and all the others, thank you!
As usual, I will provide some statistics representing what you can find on the website after these six productive years; the numbers in parenthesis show the growth since one year ago on 29 Dec 2010.
- 644 biographies (+45)
- 270 events (+20)
- 18,202 timeline entries (+1,000s)
- 594 ships (+34)
- 254 aircraft models (+27)
- 140 vehicle models (+17)
- 243 weapon models (+27)
- 53 historical documents (+11)
- 227 books reviewed (+37)
- 181 maps (+181)
- 12,356 photos (+2,151), 1,237 in color (+164)
- 8,276 visitor comments (+2,545)
I am very proud to announce that during the past year WW2DB has been recognized by the United States Library of Congress as a valuable online resource for history. The website has been filed under the control number 2011214255. I hope this website will not let the LOC down!
On a personal level, I am also proud to say that my name is now in print as a named contributor of my colleague's Refighting the Pacific War, which uses a counter-factual approach to analyze the Pacific War.
As we move into a new year, I hope WW2DB will continue to be a helpful and interesting partner for WW2 history enthusiasts. Thank you for all of your support once again, and wishing everyone a prosperous new year!
