Actually, East Timor is hiding under the world section.

This is a really interesting site. I don't know much about modern British history, and it's good to find a site that'll help me learn more.

Interesting to read a Brit soldier's perspective on the bombing of the King David Hotel and other atrocities committed by violent 1940s Jewish terrorists (or, um, freedom fighters; take your pick).

This is a great site, really detailed and interesting. I find the way that the internet allows veterans to participate in this sort of site a particularly interesting development in the recording of modern history.
