Photo Gallery of the History of World War II
The heroes of yesteryear have made America that great nation it is today. Without the brave men and women who fought our country, we would not enjoy the freedom that we so cherish. Even though the history of World War II contains tragic stories of sacrifice, these people did not fight, live, and die in vain. Instead, they have left a legacy that has been woven into the very fabric of our lives.
On this gallery page, you’ll find a number of photos that depict the countless tales of hardship and triumph. In each shot you’ll find countless American war hero stories just waiting to be told. Jon Meade, Author has photographed various locations, statues, and other artifacts that take us back in time to the Greatest Generation. These men and women persevered under some of the most difficult circumstances and knew what it was like to think “beyond themselves” -- but to the future.
