Multmedia Added,

with most recent listed at top and links to where they appear within the various webpages

***Please note that the images "behind" the thumbnails, that is, the image you will download if you click on the image, (and this is true everywhere on these Heike pages) are quite large. If you wish to see only a smaller, "screen friendly" version of the image, please click on the Chapter/Section links next to the image.***

**Unfortunately, I am unable at this time to keep this page up-to-date. Please go directly to the chapters to locate the various multimedia files that are being added to the pages. Generally speaking, the material presented on Sunday is uploaded to these pages the FOLLOWING Tuesday. Chapters 7, 8, 9 are now complete, but the weapons have not been uploaded yet.**
