So i finally finished Jack’s “Valiant Hearts” series last night, and probably like many others, cried a lot.
This games ending was so heartbreaking. The fact that Emile had killed a man who killed hundreds of thousands of men, and got the death penalty for it, sucks. The fact he didn’t know Karl was alive sucked. Everything about the situation sucked.
War Makes Men Mad.
But what made me cry even more is the message this game sent, about how millions of people have died fighting in almost every war; yet no one really stops to pay respects anymore. People need to realize that War is more than just another History Lesson they teach in school. It’s more than just ‘a silly thing in the past.’
That’s why i’m so happy therealjacksepticeye played this game. It really makes you remember how much we should appreciate those who have sacrificed their lives to keep others safe. We must never forget our past, so we can learn for the future.
Thank you, Valiant Hearts, and Jack, for helping me remember what’s really important.

Douglas A-20 Havoc night fighter performing an extremely low fly by.  Havoc units were some of the first squadrons to deploy to Britain in early 1942 when the U.S. entered the war.  The Havoc performed the night fighter role as well as the intruder mission, which entailed loitering around enemy airfields and shooting down aircraft that were taking off or landing.    

Due to insufficient quantities of U.S. aircraft, some U.S. Army Air Corps units actually used British aircraft when they arrived to the island fortress.  Several Havoc units were given British Bristol Beaufighters, and several pursuit units were given Supermarine Spitfires.       

The free French 2nd armored division entering the city of Strasbourg. The city and all the Alsace region was considered as German soil by the third reich and was seized from France in 1940. This last major city before the German border was considered as highly symbolic by General Leclerc, commander of the 2nd armored division promised to his men to not cease fighting until Strasbourg was liberated. He made this promess in Kufra in March 1941, after a victorious clash to regain an oasis held by Italian troops in Lybia. It was the first time French troops went back to offensive actions after the shameful 1940 armistice.

“These dead victims of the Germans were removed from the Lambach concentration camp in Austria, on May 6, 1945, by German soldiers under orders of U.S. Army troops. As soon as all the bodies were removed from the camp, the Germans buried them. This camp originally held 18,000 people, each building housing 1,600. There were no beds or sanitary facilities whatsoever, and 40 to 50 prisoners died each day.”
