Real Inside World War II

   WWII involved the common people.  

   On Sunday December 7, 1941, a new element of warfare--long-range air navigation bombing from aircraft carriers--was first burned into the inhabitants of Hawaii that Sunday, and then it spread to the rest of the American people.

    For all those too young to know that In 1941, Hawaii was not even a U.S. state, read on.  Hawaii was a territory of the United States.  This website is a reference source which offers an outstanding detail on the Second World War.  Expertly guided.  Author researched for over 30 years.   The presentation of WW II is for both history buffs, and the youth of today who know very little about the subject of WW II; it is an excellent resource for gen X, gen Y, gen Z, the Indigo children, the millennials—the largest group after the baby postwar generation, and we know there is a lot of information here, but it is spicy and not boring.  

    An entire generation of Americans brought up on peace felt the seriousness.   

   

 

    This website is a labor of love and it centers on  the people. If you are a teacher or a student who will use the information on this site, don't forget to see the informative timelines.   Please give credit. 

    Anniversaries are usually special, and the real 75th Anniversary of Dec. 7th was very momentous and special: the following stations are a few who did not forget, ABC,  CBS, and KHON2.  Youth, the future, at the USS Missouri,  looks at a commemorative activity while being a part of history.  During late 2017 and Jan. 2018 we added educational scrolls of history that portray when America left the palace of safety that isolationism had brought a prewar America.  

    May we suggest this video to learn more about the bombing of Pearl Harbor; it is quite one of the better made videos, narrated by David Brinkley.  History is a waste if we don’t learn anything from it. Incredibly, Dec. 7, 2016 marked the 75th Anniversary of the bombing of Pearl Harbor. Nurse participants and raw video.  Highlighting sailor Ray Chavez, 104 years old and Marine Ray Garland.  Both are WW II vets. 

    Author Robert C. Valentine has written several books about the entire WWII-era generation, especially about those who participated in WW II.   He is a member of the 8th Air Force Historical Society, the 94th Division Association,   The National WW II Museum and the American Air Museum in Britain.

   What does WW II represent to you?  Was it a world with an attitude of greedy dog-eat-dog?  Or was it the individual who believed in something more?  

   If you were alive in Nazi Germany or Italy in the late 1930s, you could have been branded a heretic and put to death for preaching democracy.  In Japan, speaking against the Emperor could have resulted in being beheaded.

 

 

   The WW II generation is shrinking but not what they did.  All the turmoils and history of the early years are described vividly in two stunning books, volumes one and two.  The spread of darkness had crept beyond the borders of Germany, Japan, and Italy.  Volume Two, actually, was a Best Books Award Finalist in the U.S. History category.  The 1944 commemorative edition highlights the year 1944, when many, many people were liberated from oppression. 1944 is special and extraordinary. Hence it is highlighted.  The chronology of 1944 is special and sprinkled with rare color photography—none are colorized, although it must be noted the power of color is a rich aid to the young, and the panorama of today’s contemporary digital power is awesome and should not be discounted. 

 

    Official documents, radio reports, published works both official and unofficial, manuscripts, letters, films both in color and black and white, and personal interviews are offered in this complex war diary.

     We must stress the nexus involves the common people.   In this special internet site, you will be transported back in time to experience the Second World War and to also see what led to victory and freedom for the world from Axis tyranny in a unique chronologic perspective.  We must stress, each war year was very different from each other, yet it was the people that changed the course of history.  The commemorative is hardcover and handles only 1944.  This website works on all hand-held devices.

    Fortunately, for the world, the essence of liberty never met defeat during World War II.  Allied victory was anchored on American help; without the U.S. there would have been no victory or liberty.  Victory was in 1945.  The last year of the war.  

     See the caps the army guys are wearing?  No, not the sailor.  They are wearing what they called a garrison cap.

     The Second World is composed of a Home Front and a War Front.  Our author, Mr. Robert C. Valentine, covers the entire world war, not just one geographic area. Yet, it was by no means "just an American show."  It was a great Allied show of peoples and nations.
