Dreadnought project

Fear nothing, dead nought.

Late-Victorian to WW1 era military technology is something I am very interested in these days, especially in terms of battleships, zeppelins and gas warfare (OK now i am starting to sound a bit weird). The Dreadnought Project is an excellent website dedicated to modeling the ships of the Dreadnought era and there are some nifty computer models on there.

The part i like the best though are some of the photo galleries which show photographs from a number of collections, what i like about the photos is they are largely "ordinary". They arn't posed or familiar action photographs but images of ordinary every day life in extraordinary times. Gold dust to anyone interested in history like me.

Another interesting site covering the olden days of naval warfare is My Victorian Navy.
