Historical records site Footnote has posted the Web’s largest collection of WWII photos, documents and information, including:

 
An interactive version of the USS Arizona Memorial in Hawaii (similar to Footnote’s Vietnam Wall memorial). You can maneuver across a life-size image of the wall naming the 1,177 sailors killed on the Arizona in the Dec. 7, 1941, bombing of Pearl Harbor, or search for a name and link to its image. You’ll also get details about the person’s service.
 
WWII Hero Pages—similar to the Social Security Death Index-based Footnote Pages released last year—let you create an online tribute for WWII veterans with photos, timelines and stories.
 
Browse more than 80,000 digitized WWII images (available online for the first time) or search captions naming people, places and events.
 
WWII documents include submarine air patrol reports, missing crew reports, news clippings, Pearl Harbor muster rolls, Judge Advocate General files and more.
 
The collection doesn’t include WWII soldiers’ military service records. Access to these records, stored at the National Personnel Records Center in St. Louis, is restricted for privacy reasons. (For more information, click here.)
 
The USS Arizona Memorial, Hero Pages and photos are free; the document collection is part of Footnote’s subscription ($69.95 a year).
