This website provides a daily edited review of World War II news. Each article is hand-picked, with the intention that the selected source is either reliable, unique, has many WWII photos, or gives us the best insight or coverage on a particular topic.
You can see the Latest World War II News here (entries 1-24), or if you haven't visited in a couple of days, check out also the recent news page (entries 25-48). Each entry is placed in one or more categories, which range from Waffen SS, Stalingrad, Militaria (Nazi Memorabilia & German Militaria, WW2 Militaria, WW2 & Nazi Uniforms, Medals), WW2 vehicles (armoured military vehicles from Battle tanks to vintage cars like WWII Jeeps and 1930s-1940s cars), travelling back in time (Third Reich Tours, D-Day Tours, and World War II re-enactments), photographs (WWII, Third Reich, Hitler) video clips (from WW2 movies and Nazi Films to WWII-era Footage), to WW2 related hobbies like Radio controlled battle tanks and planes, Military scale models and Collectors & Collectables.
A complete list of categories can be found here.

This information service is a labour of love, maintained by (not so surprisingly) a history buff. I have always been interested in military history, and particularly so World War II, and wanted to be able to see all the latest WWII-related news at one glance without wasting hours browsing around or reading miserable auto-generated news alerts.
I try to bring out different sides and views, like for example showing both dreadful and humorous aspects of the war, or using both left and right wing sources. All within reason, of course. It is easy to see that there are four topics that dominate this particular battlefield: World War II, Nazi Germany, Adolf Hitler and German militaria -- hence in fact the url and the website title "Hitler's Third Reich and World War II in the News". Some topics are on the other hand very infrequently visited, simply because there just isn't that much media coverage on them -- for example, WWII campaigns in China do not get all that much attention in the English speaking world.
Since the World War II database here currently has tens of thousands of news reviews, it is inevitable -- but unfortunate -- that some of the older links are no longer working, no matter how often the database is manually purged by fixing, removing or disabling dead links. In fact, as many online newspapers only allow access to their articles for a week or two, in order to avoid disappointments it is essential to visit us often to get the 'history' while it is still available.
Although the articles linked from this site are reviewed and specially selected, they do not necessarily represent the views of the editor, who is not responsible for the content of any external sites.
If you appreciate this World War II service, it would be much appreciated, if you could link to it.
