Soldiers Died in the Great War CD-ROM Version 2

  … the benchmark for flexibility, accuracy and ease-of-use …
If you’re serious about your Great War research this CD-ROM is essential.
  First issued in 1998, its fully searchable format allows flexible interrogation of over 703,000 records.
Its publication rewrote the rulebook and placed the Naval & Military Press in the forefront of serious military publishing. This highly-acclaimed CD-ROM has gone on to sell several thousand copies. Since publishing the original Version 1 disk in 1998 and the Version 1.1 in 1999, operating systems have advanced significantly, so we have taken advantage with this new pressing of the disk to make substantial and worthwhile improvements. Geoff Bridger, the editor of Soldiers Died in the Great War CD-ROM, has been working with the raw data since Version 1 was produced and we have now been able to incorporate many corrections to the original data. A complete overhaul of the functionality has been carried out by XRM, the database engineers, under the guidance of Geoff Bridger, and Version 2 incorporates many features and improvements that existing users have requested.
