  1. Hi, Sarah,

    I love this Today in WWII series! I would be thrilled to have them in my inbox every day. The signup form at the top of the blog seems broken though… is there another way to sign up?

      Hi Katya, Unfortunately the Feedburner service I used to send out the daily emails was discontinued. I haven’t had the time to find a new service. In the meantime, I do post these daily to my blog and on Facebook and Twitter.
