Micro Armor Devastation is a set of fast play miniatures rules for land and air combat from World War II onward. They’re very nicely done in a pdf format.
Assault Gun is a set of free wargames rules by David Kershaw. David writes:
This rule set is designed to allow players to simulate large actions of the Second World War using miniature models. Each division is represented by less than 10 bases (regiments and battalions), so players can command several divisions each, and play a recognisable action of the Second World War.
The rules originally were available on Yahoo Groups, but with that site shutting down in 2018, I have archived the files here.
JD Burgess’ site has a list of major WWII air war campaigns. For each, he has lists of the planes that participated, with links to photos and information.
In this classic oral history, Stephen Ambrose follows Easy Company of the 506th Airborne from their training to the end of World War II. It’s an easy-to-read, compelling account of men at war. I came away from this book greatly admiring the men of Easy Company. This book was the basis of the hit HBO Television series “Band of Brothers.” In many ways, this book reminded me of the classic Cornelius Ryan works like A Bridge Too Far and The Longest Day. Ambrose has taken criticism for some factual errors in his work, but the reader must remember that this is an ORAL history, and the memories of the men involved may have dimmed with time.
The Forgotten Soldier is Guy Sajer’s memoir of his life as a young soldier on the eastern front in World War II. A member of the famed Gross deutschland division, Sajer fought in most of the major battles of the war against the Soviet Union: Minsk, Kiev, Kharkov, Donetz … Kursk. The book is an amazing work — exciting … and chilliing. His descriptions are as vivid as any movie I have seen. Even though I read it nearly ten years ago, I can still recall the final battles in east Prussia — as horrifying an experience as I can think of. I cannot recommend this book highly enough.
