Website Spotlight: World War II (Europe) Animated Map


 
Introductory Note:

Welcome to one in a series of posts which spotlight quality websites that I use with my U.S. History survey course students at Azusa Pacific University to enrich the regular material in our learning modules.

In this post, I limit myself to those specific aspects of the website which I find fit particularly well within our face-to-face class sessions (each student is required to bring a laptop to class) or as the basis for the students' regularly-assigned written reactions.

++++++++++

Here are the possibilities (as of the original date of this post):

I. German Assault

The Battle of Britain
The Battle for Greece and Crete

II. North Africa

Operation Compass (Dec 1940 - Feb 1941)
Rommel's First Offensive and Operation Battleaxe 
Operation Crusader (Nov 1941 - Jan 1942)
Rommel's Second Offensive: Gazala and The Cauldron 
El Alamein 

Coming Animations 

Sicily and Italy 
Western Front

++++++++++
