To The Shores Of Tripoli

To The Shores Of Tripoli was a movie that was made about World War II during that war. The Marines who are shown in the video are examples of those who train to fight for our nation. World War II was a very critical period of time in our nation’s history. The Axis Powers of Germany, Japan and Italy had plans to conquer the world for their cause of world domination. Without the entry of the United States military forces into World War II, the objectives of the Axis powers would have been achieved. Consider some of the related facts that are included as a part of this post.

The following link will lead you to an account of the Bataan death march where the Japanese army captured 76,000 Filipinos and Americans. Japanese butchery, disease, exposure to the blazing sun, lack of food, and lack of water took the lives of approximately 5,200 Americans

  1. WW2 has always been my favorite time period of history to study. It was such a romantic time full of wonder and courage! So many young men stepped up and showed themselves to be brave patriots! God bless all of our men and women in uniform! May God give them victory in battle and may God’s angels surround them and bring them home safely!

    1. Thanks for your appreciation for the true heroes of our country. In the film clip, you may remember Randolph Scott; he was the Marine who was leading the others in the parade. He was a real “man’s man!” Also John Payne was the marine who was the first to be given an award. He also played in the best movie of Miracle on 34th street. As for me, I had 28 years in the Air Force. It was an experience that I am thankful for having.
