Not only could this be the first war with television correspondents embedded in every major unit, it could also be the first war history told with interactive graphics. CNN offers:
  • Major Iraqi Flash Points.
  • Ground Weapons
  • War Tracker page includes an interactive map of the day's situation. Previous days are also available.
  • Maps page is also interactive. It includes satellite imagery for several major locations. Look for palace in Taqrit.
  • Video viewing is now a premium service at CNN, but they have several audio slide shows which are great. Index
  • The Weapons page has interactive graphics for nearly every weapon in the inventories. If you make it to Iraq's WMD's, including gangrene, you've seen a pretty comprehensive list.
    See the neat 3-D view of the Scud launcher. (Uses Cult 3-D ).

    MSNBC also has Iraq: The Interactive Library. Most of these are quick text facts. I will point out the History of U.S. forays since 1898.
