The "Japanese Army Operations" book is a translation of two of the Senshi Sosho series. The latter is the Japanese Defence Forces official history of World War II, excellent and unique sources. If only other volumes were translated.....

I put this in another thread at thought it would be appropriate here.  Lots of pretty good information.  If it is already on the list, I'm sorry.

The Australian War Memorial starting putting the Australian Army War Diaries on line a while ago but they have recently passed the 300,000 scanned document mark. These diaries includes day by day accounts of unit activities at the Battalion, Brigade and higher headquarters levels.

There are still quite a few documents left to put online (give them a break, there are only 17,000 paper files to digitise), but all of the key items are there and this have evolved into an excellent research source.

Never thought I would be posting an Ebay store but it does seem to have some interesting raw data concerning New Zealand's military history.

quote:

Colonial CD Books http://stores.ebay.com.au/Colonial-CD-Books

Welcome to Colonial Cd Books where we offer reproductions of old and rare books, mainly based around New Zealand's colorful past, to help with researching New Zealand Genealogy and History.



Appointments, Promotions, Transfers and Resignations of Officers of the New Zealand Military Forces. 1939 to 1945 inclusive.

Extracted from the New Zealand Gazette, this searchable cd shows the movements through the ranks of the New Zealand Expeditionary Forces during WWII. Includes records from Army, Royal New Zealand Air force, Royal New Zealand Navy. A great companion cd with the WWII Ballot Lists.


WWII Ballot Lists - Notice as to Men called up under the National Service Emergency Regulations 1940 for Service with the Territorial Force.

A two Cd Set containing over 310.000 names, addresses and occupations of the men who were called to service during World War 2. These lists also include a considerable number of men who volunteered for overseas service, and also includes the names of some men who were already serving in Home Defence Units. The Cd's are searchable.

There are some interesting titles on New Zealand's WWI military heritage in there as well.
