NOTE: "Liaison" is a term used to signify established communication channels either between different branches of service, or between the militaries of different countries. This word is derived from French "liaison", meaning "(friendly) relationship, connection". Such relationship is maintained by designated "liaison officers", tasked with coordination and communication between military organizations. The alias is used in the figurative sense, implying communication and cooperation between separate and independent parties and business entities.
Are you publishing a book on WW2 history, WW2 armor, WW2 tanks, and similar subjects relating to the era? On this website you can have your own:
This website promotes reputable specialty booksellers, marketing through their own e-commerce and sales infrastructure directly to their established customer base.
This website is published for the purpose of allowing website visitors to engage in historical science and research, gather information provided by historians, study eyewitness accounts and memories presented by military veterans, understand different viewpoints and perspectives on past events during the WW2 era, and support their hobby as modelers, reenactors, and military vehicle enthusiasts. Books are presented and referred to for the website visitor’s benefit in furtherance of such aims.
In selection of the content provided, strong emphasis is placed on factual and accurate reporting and presentation. However, some content pieces present varying views and perspectives. This is done to offer the website visitor an overview of various angles of approach entertained towards a given concept, idea, or narrative, thereby enabling a more fundamental understanding of the underlying facts. By the nature of such pluralistic presentation, some website visitors may find some statements made on this website to be incongruous with past experience, with an established body of knowledge, or generally to be controversial.
In addition, the expressed purpose of this website is to present and promote the sale of specific book titles, without encumbrance and in furtherance of the objectives stated above.
Advertisements are conscientiously placed on this website so as to not intrude in the information flow presented, to avoid obfuscation and to minimize distraction:

The website theme is subject to further responsive adaption, expansion, and integration of additional functionality.
The User Experience (UI/UX) design strongly emphasizes placing the user in control of processing a structured and selectively accessible flow of information.
Images, videos, and documents display in a lightbox viewer module. Images or videos belonging to a series or gallery can be accessed inside the lightbox viewer by operating the left/right arrow controls once opened.
Videos are not embedded on the page itself, they only load once being displayed inside the lightbox viewer module, and only at that time do remote video controls of the embedded iframe become operable. To return to the page view, click anywhere within the lightbox viewer module outside the embedded content itself (click anywhere in the "black" to close the viewer). This is done to drastically increase pagespeed, an important SEO KPI, as compared to embedding on the page itself.
Certain image or video captions appear in non-truncated form, denoting additional details, only once the lightbox viewer module has opened.
