This is a collection of 21 accounts of people and events that illuminate the strange adventures, mysterious circumstances, extreme behaviors and forgotten tragedies of World War II. Ranging from a look at Adolf Hitler’s “children factory,” to the smuggling of gold bullion from the besieged island of Corregidor, to those who flew with the Chinese Air Force against Japan years before the more famous Flying Tigers, these accounts provide insight into the larger scope of the war.
