Images of total war

To put things into perspective for the generation that thinks Iraq and Afghanistan is all out warfare. The images shown in this rare film will show you what total war means. So when I hear statements like “We can never win” I know it is pure bunk. Neither Iraq or Afghanistan has tasted what total warfare means, the closest perhaps when the Soviets fought in Afghanistan, even then it pales in comparison to what the Soviets could have unleashed if they wanted to. Canada committed approx 2500 troops to Afghanistan out of a population of 33 million. In WWII we put 1 million people in uniform out of 11 million.
Watch this film taken of the battlefield from an airship on BBC and reflect on what happened there and what is happening today.

Thank you to Doug from Tanknet
