Miscellaneous subjects

While our main research focus concerns multiple aspects – from regional to wordwide – of nautical and aeronautical matters, there are some areas that overlap multiple subjects, for example: biographies; economics; political considerations; oceanography and cartography.  Our subject matter and catalogued subjects reflect this diversity.  The most overarching subject, or topic, is military which not only covers army matters, but also the interaction between the various branches of our armed forces – navies, airforces and armies; we have also regrouped all "intelligence" matters, whether military, naval or airforce into this group.
