One will also find a bevy of military photographs and paintings, not to mention an exhaustive bibliography of military history literature. Make sure to view the various features on the homepage.

Hillsdale College: Documents in Military History: An ambitious product: provides both primary source information as well as classic secondary source information. Also nice in that it covers a variance of conflicts, both geographically and chronologically.

In particular, excels in the area of military history. The best part? Photographs are easy to download and they can be reproduced at no liability because their status as public domain.

Being attacked by the Romans, Vikings, Normans, French, and Nazis has provided the English a proud military history, one which is covered in detail on this site. Although one will find a considerable bias toward WWII--and it is just Britannia--it's a fine site that will eat up your afternoon if you're not careful.
