References - Bibliography

A selection of around fifty new titles have been added in the Essays, Novels, Poetry and Memoirs columns.

Also, the layout and the caracters have been changed and are now more legible.

And, as many amongst you requested a way to look for specific books in the bibliography, a search engine is now available.

Facts - Chronology

A search engine now allows you to have access to 1,200 news for the 75-90 war chronology. Please note that the chronology shows daily news as if reported by a journalist.

It is not meant to give full descriptions nor to analyse events.
It is, in a way, a response to the questioning:
"and what happened now ?!"
