The Military Database Project

Here work is in progress for the Common Military Database (AMD). Its foundations come from two projects I work upon for some time now, first a collection of TO/E’s which I assembled several years ago and which spawned the Kriegsgliederungen” (see below), and on the other hand a sql-based database I developed to re-work Dupuys mathematical combat model (QJMA). To unite both into a easy-to-use, web-based database on military history is my aim.
