Caveat Internet: Most of the revisionist literature quoted in this book can be downloaded free of charge from the Internet. The corresponding addresses have been given in the footnotes in some cases, all accessed in July 2010. Due to the evanescent nature of many Internet sources, however, there is no guarantee that the sources will still be at the same location when the reader tries to access them. In that case please use common sense and search engines to relocate them or to find similar sources about the issues they are meant to undergird. Most revisionist books and papers published in a revisionist periodical do not have an online address listed for space reasons, although many, if not most, are available online. In that case, please check whether the respective online file can be found at one of the two major revisionist online archives storing hundreds of revisionist books and periodicals|[1]| in html, pdf and ZIP format: www.vho.org and www.vho.org/aaargh (mirrored at www.aaargh.codoh.com).
