Awesome site on the French navy in wwii. It's in French, but the stats on the ships are so well organized that they can be easily understood.

I think a portion of this site was mentioned, but what the heck just found it and was impressed
http://www.microworks.net/pacific/

Brief bios of a ridiculous amount of commanders, and some other info
http://web.genealogie.free.fr/Les_militaires/2GM/Les_marechaux_generaux_et_amiraux_1939-1945.htm
Sorry, it's in French, and not very user friendly, but maybe Babelfish or something can help with that. Makes up for flaws with truckloads of trivia (not making any claims of accuracy).

Edit: found his primary source in English, may help
