It has been said by many, and may be true since some of those who have said it often appear to know what they're talking about, that there are more books available about WWII than any other subject. It has also been a source of complaint that all these stories about war are only produced to glorify war.
How can any person with even a modicum of logic make such a foolish staement? Many of those stories, both fiction and non-fiction have been written by the people who were involved in wars, often the war in question. Perhaps as many as 10% of those authors intend to glorify their own involvment (or a small part of their personal history) but absolutely no one who has first hand knowledge of war would give even a splinter of glory to any war.
However, recounting WWII in as many ways as possible is extremely important. Most of those who were involved are gone after 66 years and those in control today are repeating some of the same mistakes from the 1930s that resulted in the horrors of WWII. Why? Because they didn't read enough of the stories about the events during and preceding the war.
Some people have tried to change or hide the facts of the WWII. Almost from the end of war in 1945 people have tried to say that the extermination of Jews, Freemasons, gypsies, Jehova Witnesses, and homosexuals was either a lie or grossly exaggerated despite the overwhelming evidence to the contrary. The only thing that has kept that truth in the public conciousness is the many published accounts of WWII and the events that lead up to it.
Those who do not study the events of the past are bound to repeat it.
