Golden Age Resources

With the M&M Golden Age book in layout, I thoiught it might be nice to start a thread collecting useful WWII era resources.

To start, I found this cool real-world timeline:

I don't think any of these links violate any of the rules. I could, of course, be terribly wrong.

If you want to add some flavour to your game with period posters try these two links (from the same site) Ad*Access: World War II and World War Two Timeline.

You can also download Radio Broadcasts 1939-1943 if you want to add some 'reality' into your games.

I've often given thought to basing M&M adventures around some of the characters in those broadcasts. Like what if the Shadow, the Green Hornet and the Green Lama, among other radio heroes, lived in the same version of the world? Or run a Noir type campaign based on the detective programs. Although admittedly in Noir the Shadow and the Green Lama as well as the Green Hornet would certainly be viable characters.

These are some wonderful links, thanks everyone.
Yes, superheroes should be played like paladins in capes.
