‚†or ‚ˆanding down W‚v II


@It has been already over 60 years since the last World War was over. And the people who experienced the war are becoming fewer and fewer every year. We are afraid the experiences of the war might be weathering in Japan.

@Therefore, we have tried to put together websites describing the war experiences and the war records by linkage, in a hope to hand the story down to generation to generation,@so that they will not or even think of starting a war of any kind, again.
