World War 2 Two II WW2 WWII
It is not possible to fully understand the history of the Second World War without refering to the forces of the Axis.
The Wartime Memories Project is purely a historical resource and the information contacted in this section is for historical educational. We are a Non Political organisation and do not support the ideas of The Third Riech, we simply present the facts.

I live in Canada and am attempting to find information on my grandfather Eberhardt Stuewe who was part of Kampfgeschwader 26 "Loewen". Could you refer me to any websites that allow searches of german military personal from WW II? I am attempting to learn more about him since he was killed in 1944 and I never had the chance to meet him. Thanks for your help.
