Today in History:

People are the reason for the war and behind the reason for which it was fought. There were Heroes and Villains on both sides, politicians, civilians and military alike. It is the human factor which makes history so compelling. 
 
Often, the “why” answer is only discovered through learning the personalities of the players involved. Through this section you will find the background and bibliographies of the Generals, the Politicians, the Women and others who shaped the conflict and determined the outcome.

Further study is recommended through the source documents located in the Reference Section. And if you have a relative who fought, or information on a participant who’s story you would like to share through this site, let us know.
