This guide is a compilation of library and Internet resources that should be useful for researching the Cold War Era.

Stars & Stripes in AccessNewspaperArchives

Editions of the U.S. military's newspaper, Stars and Stripes, are a great source of information about the military during the Cold War, the Korean War, and the Vietnam War. Both the European and the Pacific Stars and Stripes are available in the AccessNewspaperArchives database. Don't forget this database is available only to students, faculty, and staff of Bowling Green State University and to visitors to the BGSU Libraries.
