|Using the Portal
The Portal link
list is an on-line military resource for researchers, hobbyists, military
professionals and all others with an interest in military history, science and
defense. The list is composed entirely of outside (non-WTJ) websites relating
to the active prosecution of warfare and military issues. Sites not found in
the Portal include those relating to sociology, cause/prevention of war or
international relations, all of which are worthy subjects which nevertheless
fall outside of our editorial focus.
exclamation points indicate a site which we consider exceptional in some way.
Great artwork, valuable information and good navigation will each rate one of
these favorable marks.
Portal is a purely military link list, and so the subjects and categories are
standardized somewhat differently than a general purpose list.

want to know about a specific ironclad by name, say the U.S.S. Monitor, you
would go to Weapons/Naval/Pre-Dreadnought Ships.
specific sites will be listed in the related War & Period, whereas
general sites will usually be listed according to Fighting Force or
