comments powered by
from Monday 19th January 2003 More than five million aerial photographs of World War II are to be made publicly available on the internet.
Taken by the RAF, they were used by Allied commanders to help devise their strategy during the six-year conflict.
The pictures cover events such as D-Day, the Holocaust, and the sinking of the German battleship Bismarck.
The website has been created by the Aerial Reconnaissance Archives (TARA) at Keele University.
