The Virtual Vietnam Archive

Folks, if you are researching anything to do with the Vietnam War or pretty much any military operations since Vietnam, you absolutely must look at Texas Tech's Virtual Vietnam Archive. They have thousands of documents scanned and available for download or printing. It is a treasure trove.

For example, check out this document called "Arab National Liberation Movement Surges Ahead" from 1970. It is an English transcript of an article from a Chinese article, and it lays out communist Chinese support for Palestinian violence against Israel. Check out these two excerpts (click on the images for larger versions):


That's kind of interesting, no?

Between this type of thing and the developing Google book search, I feel like I'm cheating when I do research anymore.

I love the internet.
