I have attempted to make this website as easy as possible to
use despite huge web hosting limitations. Please, note the
warning ( above ). Adobe Reader ( a free download ) is
needed for viewing most files. To locate or " find " using this
application via Windows Internet Explorer, just right click your
mouse and type in the key word. It is suggested to use ( or
print ) the 66 pages of " detailed text " to enable you to
search for or cross reference material. Within that reading, the
supplemental footnotes (
RED numbers = JPG photographs,
BLUE numbers = PDF photographs, GREEN numbers = files,
BLACK numbers = credits and P = commander photographs. )
will point you to the colored tabs for additional,
comprehensive insight. Take advantage of those features. I
trust this will be an enjoyable learning experience. Thank-you !
