Wikipedia: "Best general resource" for military research

It was recently noted that a 2007 book by Simon Fowler, Guide to Military History on the Internet, rated Wikipedia as the best general resource for military research, and the number one "military site". Fowler remarked that "The results are largely accurate and generally free of bias" and "Wikipedia is often criticised for its inaccuracy and bias, but in my experience the military history articles are spot on." He also suggested that readers join the Military history WikiProject.

The WikiProject also picked up ten photographs from war zones, taken by Getty Images photographer Jonathan Alpeyrie. Alpeyrie contacted the OTRS photo submission system to offer the pictures, and the set was uploaded over the last week.
