Title: Historical Research: quote your source!
Post by: Mad Russian on 16 November 2008, 18:48:22
When doing historical research, through whatever medium, please give credit to where the material was found and also for what specific date the material covers if possible. Be as specific as possible.

If I just put 3rd Infantry 8,000 men. That doesn't tell anybody enough information to make it worthwhile. If I put 3rd British Infantry Division, 6 June 1944, source is www.D-Day (http://www.D-Day) Center. com (which is a site I just made up) then you have an idea of what I'm talking and where to go looking for more information about the subject if you are interested.

Enjoy the site. Use it. Help us make it better.

Good Hunting.
