    Americans, Germans and french fought nazis in World war 2….. Now thats freedom.

  4. I like the story of the Japanese pilot who landed on a captured airfield on Okinawa on 4/1/45. As he climbed out of the plane, he found himself surrounded by a squad of US Marines. He grabbed for his pistol then was literally blown apart by rifle fire. One marine said, "there's always some poor bastard who doesn't get the word."

    lol I wonder if No. 1 was made into a movie?

  6. I really have no idea what the Japanese were thinking invading the Aleutians. There was a reason why they were undefended. I'm not mitigating my country's decision to retake them or the soldiers' and seamen's personal efforts. It's just, the Aleutian environment and climate was a worse enemy than either side was to each other.

    Well, you left out the significance of the Battle of Dutch Harbor. A Zero fight was captured intact, allowing the U.S. to work out the capabilities and weaknesses and develop effective tactic. The whole Aleutian Campaign was half-hearted because it was a diversion Also, I think the amazing and weird "Battle Off Samar" should have been included.

    There's a whole documentary dedicated to the guy that protected those 3 merchant ships and got stuck in ice.

  11. That last one, absolutely needs a movie!

  12. There were no aircraft carriers deployed in the North or South Atlantic! Stop it!

    The Battle for Castle Itter needs to be a movie, I totally agree. Could be a real blockbuster, I'd watch it :)

  14. The Battle of Brisbane was an interesting one.  A train full of US servicemen arriving in Brisbane pulled up next to a train full of Australian serviceman who were leaving for combat in PNG.   One drunken American yelled out to the Aussies, telling them, "Thanks for the loan of your women".   Needless to say that comment caused the Aussie soldiers to board the Americans train and go after the loud mouth, which ended in a fully blown riot.

  15. the alutiens were only American because it was sold to them.

  16. These Dutch though…
