Raw Archives



Sometimes, not to say often, I come across documents of more than 200 pages among which, only a few are interesting (within the framework of WW2). It would be easier to dismiss such documents, but the problem remains, some pages are interesting and may even provide information that is sometimes essential in the context of my research.
This is the reason why I created this category which under the name of Raw Archives could be called Category all-in-all.

Your Devoted Servitor, Doc Snafu
