Paladin Press is and has been a source of many military manuals reprints

Closed or Inactive Websites (Including ones now closed to the public)
Below are sites which closed, no longer accesssable to the public or inactive. They deserved to be remembered.
A good idea in its time, a victim of the times
Original comments on this website...The ADTDL is the U.S.Army online military manual library. The public can
view and download any of the several hundred current military manuals which the
U.S.Army has made available. This web site was design for use by both U.S.Army
and the general public, with the public being locked out of the restricted
manuals. Their are some problems. Unless you have a fast modem, fast computer,
fast printer, have the right plug in's, and a lot of time you may have problems
actually obtaining a manual. But it is possible to have access to current
Army Administrative Electronic Publications [No longer accessable]
A victim of the times
Original comments on this website...This is the U.S.Army's site for Army Regulations (AR's), the manuals that
really run the U.S.Army on a daily basis. Generally AR's are numerous, seem
like they cover every conceivable subject, hard to find (especially old one's)
and change constantly. They can also be are real education in what the U.S.Army
is suppose to do. Believe it or not at one time in history they all fit into a
single book. Now they need a small library with many bookcases to house
Marine Corps Doctrine Manuals (USMC) [No longer accessable]
Another victim of the times
Original comments on this website...This webpage is the U.S.Marine Corps digital manual library. It part of the
Marines Corps doctrine divisions website. While it does list their manuals and
it does have a number of manuals which can be downloaded, the list is far from
complete and the whole site is generally under construction. When it comes down
downloading or viewing the manuals it has the same problems as the U.S.Army's
digital training library above.
A great loss
Original comments on this website...This is one of the finest military content sites on the World Wide Web. It
has many articles and links to many other sites. It is a must for anyone
interested in modern military operations in cities.
Navy Fact File [Closed]
Original comments on this website...Courtesy of the U.S.Navy, an extensive series of fact sheets on modern U.S.Navy Ordnance and ships.
A great loss
Original comments on this website...An excellent website devoted to Railway Gun Technology. With many pictures and links.
M240B Gunners Training Page [Closed]
Original comments on this website...This is a website devoted completely to the technical aspects of the M240B Machine Gun (7.62mm). The site works best in Internet Explorer.
The Roman Army by Gary Brueggeman [Inactive]
Hopefully it will reopen
Original comments on this website...It is unusual for us to point out websites which deal with technological subjects which are don't have at least some technology which has been developed within the last two hundred years. But this site is so outstanding in the amount of technological information that it gives, that it should be looked at.
