Beschreibung

As rich in history as World War II at the Movies, which commemorates in chronological order World War II major battles and pivotal events and captures the spirit of frontline heroes and strategist leaders, World War II at the Movies, Volume II, is as different in content and format. These compelling major motion picture films, blockbuster thrillers, and fascinating supplemental data elucidate and elaborate on top secret commando missions, challenges that wounded veterans faced adapting to civilian life with life-changing disabilities, and innovation, development, and advances in war weaponry technology, which led to the Allied victory over tyranny. You will find out: • whose naval career was depicted and portrayed by Cliff Robertson at the time he was a sitting president of the United States • who was the youngest World War II veteran (who enlisted in the Navy at the age of twelve) • who was the oldest World War II veteran (who died in December of 2018 at the age of 112) • which "lady" came to England's financial aid when they couldn't fund the spitfire's entry in the Schneider race (the winner of which would be awarded funds to further advance airplane design) • who invented Germany's enigma code machine
