The Prince and the foot soldier: Adolf Hitler, the budding politician wearing the wrong tie, tries his developing magic on Prince Wilhem, Crown Prince of Germany, on March 21, 1933. Herman Goering is visible on the right in the photo. The officer in steel helmet with the white mustache, visible behind the Prince, is Gen. Hans von Seeckt.

Jimmy Stewart’s original attempts to join the Army were rejected because he did not meet the height and weight requirements to become a fighter pilot. Unfazed by the setback, Stewart found an alternative route by joining the U.S. Air Corps, where he would quickly rise through the ranks and become a Colonel in just four years. He won virtually every Medal of Honor available, helped fly crucial missions in Nazi Germany and would later fly B-52 Bombers through Vietnam.
