Seventy Years

Two Tyrants in a Motorcade

Seventy Million - the high-end estimate of war dead resulting from WW II.

Seventy percent - the proportion of American service members who were in the Army in WW II.

Stephen Ambrose wrote that 70% of US casualties were incurred by 10% of the troops (the infantry).

The outstanding individual leader of the war was Winston Churchill, who turned seventy at the Tehran Conference.

Today was the day, seventy years ago, that the Nazi German invasion of Poland sparked the wider conflict that was the Second World War.
