Historical Context:
"'Although most people think that they are war conscious, are they really? So far removed from the far-flung battlefronts, can they be?' -Major Oscar Mitchell, April 15, 1944. The declaration of war is among the most profound decisions a society can make. With it come great consequences, sadness, and turmoil. To glorify or romanticize war is a common and, perhaps necessary theme; however, there is no glory or romance in war. To censor or minimize the ugliness of war serves only to trivialize the sacrifices made by those who serve." -Jason Rutter
