News From the Past!

In recognition of the 70th anniversary of the Battle of Britain, the RAF Benevolent Fund has put together an awesome website, the 1940 Chronicle:

The campaign revolves around the ‘1940 Chronicle’, an online newspaper which breaks daily news of Britain at war from the same day 70 years ago, as though the Battle of Britain is happening in real time.

It presents historical information in a blog format, with posts detailing events in the war as if they were happening now, posted 70 years to the day after they actually occurred. There are Twitter feeds as well, along with photos and news stories.

It's a fascinating way to present history.

Thanks to Karra Crow at ...Fly Over Me, Evil Angel... for pointing me in its direction.
