World War II - Pointing Their Pens: Herblock and Fellow Cartoonists Confront the Issues | Exhibitions

Before the U.S. entered World War II in December 1941, cartoonists, like the rest of the country, were divided over the issue of American intervention. Herblock favored intervention in Europe. However, during the same period, many of his fellow cartoonists discounted Hitler or chose to focus on national defense.

D-Day by the Numbers - A fascinating and sobering look at the realities of the D-Day invasion

D-Day

Codenamed Operation Overlord, the invasion began on June 6, 1944, also known as D-Day, when some 156,000 American, British and Canadian forces landed on five beaches along the heavily fortified coast of France’s Normandy region during World War II. The operation was one of the largest amphibious military assaults in history and has been called the beginning of the end of war in Europe.

How a ruse to keep German pilots confused gave the Vitamin-A-rich vegetable too much credit

1945. Berlin lies in ruins as the Red Army ravages its way across Eastern Europe, and the Allies close like pincers on the German capital. But this story begins in a very different Berlin; footage reveals Europe's most dynamic and liberal city in full swing even as the Great Depression sweeps the globe in the early 1930s.
