More > end of the grand history-altering event known as World War II (aka “The Good War”), only one narrative of the conflict has been heard.

You know the lyrics: “Germany, Italy & Japan tried to enslave the planet. The “good guys” of the “world community” banded together and saved the world.” Because the moronic mantra is never questioned, the public mind quite assumes it to be an indisputable truth, on par with 2 + 2 = 4. That's difference between mythology and an ordinary lie. Can you handle the truth that "they" don't want you to know about?< Less
