Please post here if you have any links to historical sites for WWII including links from your posts. Not for links to miniature manufacturers (that is in Talk'n Minis Room).

The Combined Arms Research Library of the US Army's Command and General Staff College has a number of Military Intelligence Division reports produced during World War II at the following site:

http://www-cgsc.army.mil/carl/wwIIspec/index.asp

Dropbear should find the following reports useful for his Ranawe Island campaign:

No 27 - Soldier's Guide to the Japanese Army

No 29 - Japanese Defense Against Amphibious Operations

plus other reports dealing with Japanese Infantry Weapons, Artillery, Tanks, Parachute Troops and Antitank Warfare.
