WWII day by day

For those interested, World War II Day-By-Day provides a daily diary of the Second World War. It is up to Day 545 February 26, 1941. It brings out the sheer scale of the war.

On scale, have a look at Nigel Davies post Statistical confusion – whose troops actually did the fighting in World War Two. Nigel's blog is well entitled Rethinking History.

I mean at some point to write something on this one. For a number of reasons that I won't bore you with now,  I suspect that modern Australian perceptions of WWII have become a tad twisted. In the meantime, Nigel's post provides a useful view.
