World War II Today was originally a blog, written day by day on the seventieth anniversary of the war. It attracted a strong following.

“A wonderful descriptive and well researched website – one of the best on the net. Please continue with your fine work. Important part of all of our history – no matter which country you are from.”

Now published as a newsletter the original stories are being continually revised and refreshed.

Every day World War II Today examines just one episode from the war on one day, eighty years after the event.

As often as possible it looks at an event as experienced by those who were there. They are not always about the “most important” event of that day. But they were pretty significant to the people involved.

And every week we take a longer look at some aspect of the war, not necessarily linked chronologically. Some personal experiences are also featured here but a much wider range of topics whether political, strategic, technical etc are included.
