World War Two and the events that transpired between the years of 1939-1945 have been the subject of fascination for people around the world for more than seven decades now . Whether researching recreationally, or for otherwise prescribed school or university work… everyone, everywhere, knows a thing or two about the gruesome and grisly history that has pervaded the world and still has an impact today. I can’t help but wonder however, how it is possible that humans have changed so much in the last seventy-three years? Would these 18-year-old, social media addicted man-children that I see scrambling mindlessly onto public transport each day be able to fly planes, lead navy missions…. and strategize to ultimately save the life of millions…all in the name of defending their country? How did humans change so much? And is it a good thing?
