1938 – 1940 Resource and Timeline is a personal sandbox research and resource project.

The project represents an attempt to detail, as thoroughly and accurately as possible, relevant events, hardware and military manoeuvres associated with the outbreak and the first years of the Second World War.

The project specifically; spans chronologically, the period from the 1st January 1938 up until the declaration of the certainty of the ‘Battle of Britain’. As predicted by British Prime Minister Winston Churchill during the Summer of 1940.

The deliberate decision to omit the span of time between the Battle of Britain, and the end of 1940 was taken by the authors of the website as they felt that the events and historical denotations of the Battle were already pre-eminently explored, and readily available in a digitised format at a plethora of online locations.
