To The Shores Of Tripoli – Fighting Men Of World War II

“Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends.” (John 15:13 KJV)

Leading the marching Marines in the video is Randolph Scott; he was truly a “man’s man.” Others of that same “man’s man” character are Jack Webb and Clint Eastwood, whom also played key roles in military movies.

To The Shores Of Tripoli was a movie that was made about World War II during the time of that war. The Marines whom are shown in the video are examples of the men which trained and fought for our nation during the second world war. Consider the expertise of the Marines as they march: “3 columns – 23 abreast; “the beat of the drum; the placement of the left foot at the beat of the drum; the ability of the men to make their unified turn without anyone losing marching cadence.” These Marines too, were truly “men’s men.”

World War II was a very critical period of time in our nation’s history, and in that of the world. 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 article.

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
