The data for WW2 Daily Lite comes from the World War Two Timeline Project at Cannonade.Net. This is a community contributed project to collect time and place data for the war. You can come to the site to browse the timeline or even log in and contribute new data.
The Timeline Project currently indexes over 700 data points with new entries being added daily. If a significant event isn't in the database yet, it soon will be.
