The Discriminating General's Favourite Links

We started this page in 1995. At that time the internet was in its infancy. There were only a handful of military heritage sites. Now there are literally thousands. Because of this we have not continued to maintain this page. However there are still links of interest here. Enjoy.


Canadian War Museum. Great site! Try out the trivia section. They are certainly taking a leadership role in this media for communicating their messages. Their new gallery tour will take you through Canada's military heritage from Colonial times to Peacekeeping. (English, Français)

National Army Museum. Detailed information on museum. (English)

Imperial War Museum. Nice that you can access the museum`s departments.(English)

National Museums of Scotland. General information on Scottish United Services Museum. While their web link isn't anything to look at, dealing with the helpful staff of the SUSM is a pure pleasure. (English)

The Victoria and Albert Museum. (English)

Parks Canada's National Historic Sites. Clearing house of general information of numerous national military sites across Canada. Parks Canada Homepage has to other international historic site organizations of interest. To get to the National Historic Sites click "Visit Us", then "National Historic Sites", then "alphabetical listing across Canada". Sorry the site is hurting for multimedia. (English, Français)

Fortress of Louisbourg National Historic Site. Great site! Informative and visually appealing with attractive wallpaper, site images, etc. (Deutsch, English, Français)

The Louisbourg Institute Home Page. This includes the above link as well as offering information on the research projects, tourist information, historical societies, etc. associated with the site and the surrounding area. Also has a 3D vitual reality game. (English)

Napoleonic Sites

Napoleonic Literature. Great Site for the Napoleonic enthusiast! John Schneider has done a great service to us all. Visit it. (English)

The Napoleon Series Fons Libert has provided us tons of information, articles, the only Napoleonic discussion forum, and links for the napoleonic enthusiast. Any interested in the said period will find him or herself visiting this site time and time again. (English, Français in places)

Brigade Napoléon. Bravo to Bill Teefy! Through his hardwork the Brigade Napoléon is on the internet. This organization will ensure the steady growth of Napoleonic reenactment in North America. If there are other units in North America recreating Napoleonic French or French Ally units this is the organization for you. This page has some excellent graphics produced by Mr Teefy particularly under the 21e Regiment section. (English)

Histoire et Figurines. Emmanuel Desanois and his collegues have begun an ambitious project of developing an archives of Napoleonic army information for the miniature wargamer. While the latter is their focus the content is also draws the interest of the average Napoleonic enthusiast.(English, Français)
