'Stars And Stripes' Archives Now Online.

Stars and Stripes, the independent military newspapers, is placing its entire microfilm archive online, according to a release.

The newspaper has partnered with Heritage Microfilm to digitize and place its complete microfilm archive online.

"This partnership, which also includes microfilm preservation of Stars and Stripes newspapers, gives libraries, historical societies, educational institutions and individuals online access to more than one million pages of historic newspaper content never before available," the release added.

"We are proud to be able to distribute this historic military publication," Jeff Kiley, general manager of Heritage Microfilm, said in a statement. "Researchers across the globe will now have access to Stars and Stripes, which has been reporting on major headlines from the front lines continuously since World War II."

The archive follows nearly two years' of assembling the best microfilm of the Stars and Stripes collection available. It includes the Stars and Stripes European and Pacific editions between 1948 and 1999.

"To be able to share this historic content with those who serve in uniform and their families is something we've been working for years to achieve," Max D. Lederer Jr., Stars and Stripes publisher, said in a statement.

The archives can be found here.
