I am currently up to my eyes researching for Terry Deary’s latest Horrible History book. The focus is spies during WW2. I am lucky this time around in that we have some extra help from experts on operations in France. This leaves me just every other country involved in the war!
When researching I am always looking for free and accurate resources. You never know what a project is going to throw up and though I am always on the look out for cheap, second hand books, you can’t cover all bases.The library is obviously a great place, but if I can get the information through a digital resource then it saves time and money.
One site that is sometimes of great help is ibiblio. They have a huge collection of free ebooks, but mostly importantly they have loads of history stuff. So enjoy.
Oh yeah, when you get bored check out Project Gutenberg.
