WWII Library

Welcome to the Library. Here you’ll find some reference books that I have used over the years to help me write scenarios, as study guides for painting and to simply delve more deeply into the fascinating history of World War II.

Here I try to break the library down into categories that might meet your interest depending on the type of research you might be doing.

If you have any book suggestions, please do let me know. I really enjoy reading books in general. This list will no doubt continue to grow and I’ll try to add comments to each of the items to give you a better idea of the contents.
