CBI-related Websites, Books, Organizations

Since the 60th anniversary of the end of WWII in 2005 brought the disbanding of many veterans' groups, and while the "hard-copy" magazines such as the Ex-CBI Roundup have ended their run, the advent of the internet has brought information on the CBI and WWII in general directly to our homes. The amount of information available has increased astronomically. There are countless books available online as well as many CBI and WWII websites available which include online forums where people can exchange information, ask and receive answers to questions related to specific areas of interest, and on and on. Some of these websites are specific to one unit while others are much broader in their coverage of the CBI.
