Description

Pictoral database of historical photos and drawings from World War II, mostly from the US Government's National Archives.

World War II was a global military conflict between 1939 and 1945, which involved most of the world's nations, including all great powers, organized into two opposing military alliances: the Allies and the Axis. The war involved the mobilization of over 100 million military personnel, making it the most widespread war in history. In a state of "total war, " the major participants placed their entire economic, industrial, and scientific capabilities at the service of the war effort, erasing the distinction between civilian and military resources. Over seventy million people, the majority civilians, were killed, making it the deadliest conflict in human history.

The United States National Archives and Records Administration (NARA) is an independent agency of the United States government charged with preserving and documenting government and historical records and with increasing public access to those documents.

You do not need an Internet connection to use this app. All images and information are viewable offline.

This is an excellent pocket reference for those who wish to learn more about the pictoral history of World War II, especially students and teachers.

A subset of the overall feature list for this application includes:

- Advanced search for all images. The top 150 results are returned by the search engine. If you need a more finely-tuned search, simply add more terms into the search field.

- Add/edit/remove images, and access images you added using My Images. If you find data that needs revision, you can edit it using your on-screen keypad, or add your own interesting data, or perhaps an image that you took while in the field.

- You can rate images on a 5-star system. Once rated, the entry is much easier to access later since you can just tap on the "Top Rated" button in the "More" section at the bottom of the screen.

- Mark your favorite images, and view them in the Favorites area. This is similar to the "Top Rated" feature, but with more direct access since the button is always-visible at the bottom of the screen.

- E-mail any image to a friend, and CC or BCC it, too.

- Rename categories and add/remove categories. We've given you a starting point to help you categorize and organize your images, but you can always add more, or change the default categorization. Also, you can put any image in up to 2 categories, if desired.

- Shake your mobile device for a random entry. This is just fun on every level.

- "View All" images for access to every item in the database.

- Use a simple "finger swipe" gesture to move from one image to another, or use the previous/next buttons.

- Insert a textual comment about the image.

- The history feature keeps a log of what you've seen, so you can always go back to re-read about that image you remembered from days ago.

- A Settings screen allows you to change the relative font sizes and the size of the history table.

This app requires at least OS version 3.0
