Isn't it very perplexing to the point of being totally flabberglasting that some young Americans


don't know what World War II was, why was it fought, who were the Allied & Axis Nations, & what countries were instrumental in winning World War II? There was a question polling in Times Square, New York recently which asked young Americans from 18-30 about World War II, not one of them know what World War II was, what the Allied & Axis nations were, & what countries were instrumental in winning World War II. Now, I KNOW that we are in .......KNEE DEEP.....

    Probably because Europe lost around a quarter to a third of its young men in both wars, so it has a much greater residual memory. A Queen who lived through WW2 helps, too.
