“History is written by the perspective of the victors”-Winston Churchill.
We’ve all been raised to believe that in the World Wars, the evil Axial powers were defeated by the good Allied forces.
However, to a soldier who just tries to serve his country best, there is no difference between right and wrong, just their side and the opposition.
Here’s a story nearing the end of WW2 from a Japanese POV.
When a war ends, millions are left behind dead and those who survive, lose everything in it. Its unjustified when a conflict has a possibility of being solved through discussion and is still raised to a point where war becomes necessary. The merciless killing of innocent people, which leads to endless tragedy, is inhumane and not worth anything ever. The wise solve the issues and the stupid fight. Everyone loses in a war. War is not the solution, instead it worsens the situation till it becomes impossible to come out of unscathed.
Operation Mincemeat was a ghoulish deception operation carried out by the British during World War II to turn the tide of the war in the Allies’ favour. Though it has been lost in the annals of history, this single ingenious operation was instrumental in squashing the Third Reich’s conquest and power.
