Military Collections Article Databases

There are two commercial article collections (from Ebsco and ProQuest) that try to cover all topics relevant to military studies.  They offer scholarly articles, but also trade, popular and news magazine articles.

In addition, here are links to free military periodicals search engines from military libraries.  The DTIC Online link in particular can provide access to other forms of information (reports, etc.)

And, to get to the complete lists of article databases (by subject) available here at Marquette, use the drop-down menu below.
