Weider History Group Announces the Launch of its New Website: Providing facts, opinions, and entertainment for history lovers

Leesburg, VA (June 19, 2009) – Want to learn about James Bond's creator Ian Fleming or the World War II female aviator Cornelia Fort? Maybe the Obamas' quest for a dog has you curious about earlier presidential pooches.
On, visitors can read about all of these and much more during a lunch break, between classes, or any other time they have a few minutes to spare.

Created by the Weider History Group, publisher of 11 history-oriented magazines and two additional Web sites, GreatHistory presents short blogs by knowledgeable writers on subjects related to American and world history, women's history, military history, history in pop culture, current events and historic sites.                                                                                            

"Hundreds of thousands of readers regularly curl up with our magazines to read about their favorite historical subjects, because those print publications explore topics in depth, as do our other Web sites, and," Weider History's president Eric Weider said.

"But we know that on the Web, many people are looking for information they can digest quickly. Unfortunately, there's a lot of misinformation out there; GreatHistory was designed to be a place where readers can find brief, informative, entertaining articles on a variety of historical topics from a trusted source. If they want additional information, they can follow links from these articles or, in many cases, search our other sites."

In the month since its debut, GreatHistory's bloggers have looked at the real history behind events in the Watchmen movie; explored Fanny Kelley's 1864 narrative, My Captivity Among the Sioux Indians; asked if it is time for the U.S. to have a frank, sit-down talk with its ally, Israel; discussed a working torpedo designed in 1280 A.D.; and visited Abraham Lincoln's birthplace, among a great many other topics.

"It's a great site to learn intriguing, new factoids, to discuss history-making events that are taking place today, and maybe even to discover some new friends who share your interests," Weider said.

Print publications of the Weider History Group include America's Civil War, American History, Armchair General, Aviation History, British Heritage, Civil War Times, Military History, MHQ: The Quarterly Journal of Military History, Vietnam, Wild West, and World War II.
