Research Resources

I have compiled a list of useful resources that will help any budding military historian or amateur archaeologist. One great first step to take is to download and install Google Earth Pro (for free) to access some fantastic aerial imagery of the UK and Ireland, and then download and import the Defence of Britain overlay from the Pillbox Study Group. This incredible database will overlay all known (primarily) WW2 sites across the UK, and their last known condition. Other than that, you’re on your own to research and explore. Good luck, and stay safe.
