Why World War II Matters


A lecture by my favorite living historian, Victor Davis Hanson.  We are at an interesting point in regard to World War II.  The youngest veterans of that conflict are now approaching 90.  Soon that conflict will slip from living memory.  When it does, how it is perceived in hindsight will probably shift as has happened with other conflicts.  It is one thing to have Uncle Bob, or great Uncle Bob, tell you what the Battle of the Bulge was like.  It will be another to depend upon historical records only to form our perceptions, especially as generations arise that have had no direct contact with World War II veterans.
