The Pacific War Online Encyclopedia is an educational nonprofit Web site dedicated to the history of the Pacific War, 1941-1945. The introduction page describes the Encyclopedia as follows:
- The following pages contain information on many aspects of the Pacific War, including descriptions of ships, planes, installations, and commanders. Individual articles can be quickly located from the Index. Because this encyclopedia was originally developed as an online database to accompany a Pacific War computer war game, there is more than the usual emphasis on the technical, logistical and geographical aspects of the Pacific War. Geographical locations include most significant locales between 70E and 110W longitude and 55S and 65N latitude. An attempt has been made to provide comprehensive information on flag and general officers, with fewer entries for civilians or military persons of lesser rank.
The Encycloped is hosted by HostRocket.com and is maintained by founder Kent G. Budge. Budge is also the author of all but a handful of articles authored or coauthored by John Kollar. The site includes both a [discussion board] and a Disqus-based comments system.
