During World War II, Josephine Baker served with the French Red Cross and was an active member of the French resistance movement. Using her career as a cover Baker became an intelligence agent, carrying secret messages written in invisible ink on her sheet music. She was awarded honor of the Croix de Guerre, and received a Medal of the Resistance in 1946.

Gotthard Heinrici, considered by some the best defensive general in the entire German Army in World War II. He was one of the few generals to defy Hitler; he protected his men and rarely failed to halt the Russian advance despite the odds. Outnumbered more than 20 to 1 outside Berlin, he managed to hold off the Russians for almost a week while inflicting enormous casualties. When the battle seemed lost, he sent his men home rather than let them die fighting.
