WTF Fun Fact – WW2 A Code Of Honor

    You literally just read a fact about how a war created a friendship. I know there are thousands more downsides of war than upsides, but saying it creates “nothing good” is a stretch. War can save countries, maybe even the world, but usually it’s just conflict between countries.
