An unparalleled collection of European and American military history
Bridgeman Art Library represents many archives with rich and diverse collections in European and American military history. The National Army Museum, Imperial War Museum and Royal Naval Museum all chronicle England's military history from prominent people to depictions of maritime and land battles across the globe, political cartoons to maps and illustrations of uniforms. For a chronicle of 20th century wars, several German photography collections are unparalleled. SZ Photo and H.P. Stiebing both illustrate the tragedy and eventual triumph of more recent times, from the feat of the D-Day landings, the decimation of Dresden, the horrific realities of the Nazi Holocaust to the war effort on the home front. Peter Newark American Pictures is a wonderful resource for images and ephemera from the American Revolutionary War up to Vietnam, from recruiting posters to portraits of civil war soldiers to weapons and paraphenalia. The Canadian War Museum chronicles North America's contribution on the international stage in both times of war and peace.
