Laurence Rees is one of those people, much like JDC, that seems to be able to pass on to us mere mortals a mountain of experience and knowledge, thus I can highly recommend this site, and after May Day, it will be free :)

That really is a fantastic move too isn't it?

This means that we will no longer be taking any subscriptions from today, before the site itself goes free on Tuesday 1 May. This is a big step forward for the site and I decided to take it only after a lot of thought. Iíve been very pleased with the success of WW2History.com as a subscription site Ė with several thousand subscriptions taken out. On this basis the site would, within another year or so, have paid back the cost of making it and be delivering a future of profit.

So why should I turn my back on that financially attractive future? Well, because these are times of austerity in the educational world, and having discussed the situation with school and university teachers I came to the conclusion that the site could never reach many of those who wanted it most if we carried on as we are.

Thatís why I came to the decision I did. Iíll always be incredibly grateful to everyone who has supported the site during this subscription period.
