HistoryNet Tour 2008

4/2/2008 • HistoryNet

Welcome to the new and improved Historynet.com!  Let me be the first to thank you for checking out our new site and looking in at this tour to see what is new, what has stayed the same, and what is coming down the pipeline.  So, let’s jump right in!

Daily Quiz: One of our most popular and long time features, the Daily Quiz will definitely be on the new site.  However, we are currently revamping how we present the questions which will take us a little time to complete.  You can find it in the middle of the front page (see image below).

Today in History: The Today in History (TDIH) is still alive and well.  We are going to be expanding the amount of content we have for each day, but that will take some time to develop with our writers.  It is currently located in the bottom right of the front page (see image below);

Picture of the Day: This feature has been recently restored.  It can be found in the same box as Today in History (see image above).

Magazine Issue Landing Pages: We are working on putting these back online.  The latest articles from all the issues are found in the respective magazine categories (see image below, left).  The very latest articles will be placed in the large marquee (see below, right) and the section just below it.

News: Our history news is currently being developed to bring you more interesting and timely news. We want to pull from a variety of sources to provide a diverse mix of interesting history related news. Currently the news is set to bring in the latest news from the History News Network, though we hope to add other sites to broaden our news sources.  News is our first feature box (see image below).

Armchair General Features: Our partner site for Armchair General magazine publishes unique online articles which we like to highlight here.  These articles are generally related to military history, and often ask one of the most important questions for a historian — "What if?"   We hope you enjoy these features!  They can be found in the 4th box of our features (see image below).

Monthly Spotlight and Recent Issues: With 10 magazines devoted to history, it is difficult to give them each the limelight they deserve.  Each month we will give one magazine extra attention by shouting to the world what makes each one so special.  This will display the latest feature articles from the chosen title (see image on left, below).  Similarly, the next feature box shows the latest issues as they come out and displays the Table of Contents, the letters from readers, and any related editorial.

    I have published four books about the Battle of the Bulge and work as a staff ride instructor for U.S. Army staff rides to Normandy and the Ardennes. I worked with the late Charles B. MacDonald running trips to the Ardennes battlefield asnd assisted him in the research for his book “A Time For Trumpets”. In the past 20 years I contacted some of the men who fought alongside MacDonald on the west bank of the Jansbach . I did so to get their experiences at the time in question in order to lean as mch as possible about their role in the battle. Much is said about Bastogne but the Germans made their main effort against the north shoulder and supported it with two special operations. The result is that I now have a 10,000 word article about the action on the west bank of the Jansbach in which two medals of honor were earned . It is written in the words of the men who were there in 1944 and makes very interesting reading. I also have photographs of the men in question. They include the battalion commander, the two lieutenants who commanded Companies K + L, some of MaDonald’s men. I believe it to be well worth publishing as it was pivotal in stopping the Germans from reaching the 2nd Infantry Division’s Main supply route. It should stimulate interest in the German main effort and how it was stopped.

    Continued good work! I love your site and download it every day. I have only one comment: Lately I have been unable to print stories using the “Print This Page” option. This is a valuable tool for me since I am visually and physically handicapped. I download the article then copy it into Microsoft Word where I can increase the font size to make it more readable for me. I then print the article out and read it at my leasure. I hope you can correct this function.
