Back in the old days, almost every website had a sitemap where they listed out all the pages. Our parting shots page will give you a little more information about The Military And Wars, From The Revolution To Nuclear Subs. If you've become lost, or frustrated, you can access all pages directly from this page.

Nose art, images painted on airplanes primarily during wars, provides powerful insight into the life and times of the soldiers involved in those wars. The art conveys a multiplicity of meanings, from pride in one's country, to bravado, to the hope for a successful return from a dangerous mission. During World War II, nose art reached its apogee. The affection felt by crew members for the plane assigned to them and their pride in its combat record was expressed in the way the planes were named and decorated. Only original crews got to name the airplanes. When new planes arrived they were frequently given the name of a former plane such as Betty #2 or what have you.
