Our friend, Tony Banham, on his monthly Blog
Kong War Diary, comments on an impressive initiative The
Battle of Hong Kong 1941: A Spatial History Project
The reason I think this is so important is that books, by definition, are static. Once they are published, they can never evolve. But the database approach used in this project allows data to be constantly added to, corrected, and refined. In practice it creates a dynamic repository of knowledge which will only grow and evolve over time, modelling and representing the Battle of Hong Kong better and more completely than could possibly be allowed by any other approach. It will become the dynamic interactive encyclopedia of the battle, and many other theatres may follow its lead.
Mike Babin mentioned this project in our Autumn 2021 Newsletter, and it has continued to evolve. If you're interested in the "bigger picture" of the Battle, you will gain a unique insight by viewing the events, displayed dynamically.
