Anyone interested in the 340 images of POW messages currently available at the Internet site for The BenHaven Archives will benefit greatly from reading "POWMonitoring and the Messages of Alfred R. Young" by historian and author Jerry Berg. His review evaluates the Archives' collection in terms of such topics as demographics, message-relay formats used by shortwave listeners, message content, Radio Tokyo's presentation of the messages, and message recordings.

Mr. Berg's review is part of the many research aids available at Ontheshortwaves.com, a must-visit for anyone interested in this aspect of World War II, as well as the comprehensive history of shortwave broadcasting and the shortwave broadcast DXing hobby. Mr. Berg is the author of On the Short Waves 1923-1945, Listening on the Short Waves, 1945 to Today, Broadcasting on the Short Waves, 1945 to Today, and The Early Shortwave Stations: A Broadcasting History through 1945.
