This portal page is designed so it can be copied to a hard drive, forwarded by e-mail, or otherwise distributed as widely as desired by its users. The links are all absolute addresses, and don't assume this page is residing anywhere in particular. If you have such a copy and want to get the latest version, this page is found at on the Air War College Gateway to the Internet, which has over 45,000 links and files pertaining to every aspect of the military. C'mon down and visit us online.

If you make a copy of this page on your hard drive, and then make that copy into your browser's home page, you can avoid the delay of waiting for an online page to load when you start your browser. For many folks this can make a BIG difference. That is also why this page was designed to load quickly.

If a link above is not active, it is because we are awaiting the latest version of that particular link.

Most of the links above will appear on one screen if you have your monitor in 1024 by 768 resolution or greater, and view the browser full screen (On Internet Explorer press F11 or select "Full Screen" under the "View" menu option).

If you put this file on your hard drive, you can modify it and add links of your own choosing ... such as adding direct links to agency and reference pages you use often. Just go to "Source" in the "View" menu and add or change URLs or names of links. Be sure to save as a text file, but with the .htm file extension.

In Google, Yahoo, and some other search engines, you can type terrorism to search for terrorism on all sites ending with . Most search engines have a similar feature for searching a site where you just know the document is there, but you can't find it listed or by using the site's built-in search engine.

Regardless of how good a search engine is, you should not rely on only one. Each search engine has links that other engines do not have. Also, the search method for one engine may work best this time, but next time a different engine may get you closest to the info you need.
