I saw a story this weekend on the news about three sailors stranded on a Pacific island who spelled out "HELP" with palm fronds and were rescued by the navy. It reminded me that some pilots in the war might have found themselves in similar situations although signaling help might not have brought the right side to the rescue.

Last week my 7th grade social studies students saw a video detailing how many casualties each side in the war saw. To say that the German invasion of Russia caused a staggering amount of deaths is hard to put into perspective. It does make you have a lot of "what if" thoughts when it comes to the strategies that were central to the outcome of the conflict.

This block sometimes has a lot of medals which is not my favorite listing. However, when you are featuring items from Russia, Japan and Italy you sometimes get a little bit of a heavy dose of those.

If you have read down to the bottom of the newsletter then you know that the last block is reserved for items from the WWI. Many of these listings are now 100 years old and looking good.
