WWII Day by Day

24-year-old Alwyn Collinson, An Oxford history graduate has begun a six-year project to tweet events from every day of the Second World War as they happened 72 years ago.

I am no particular fan of Twitter, but I think this is an interesting project, especially these days when memory of WWII is slowly fading away and the war is becoming part of a distant past.

I have added data feed from this Twitter account to my blog – you can find the tweets in the lower section of the column to the right.

Recent article in The Telegraph provides more information on the project:
