As I say below I was a fan of war movies which filled TV in the 1950's or so. What young boy wouldn't. Boys males are genetically wired to crave excitement.
However one day...I guess I was 11. It came to me these were all just people. People like my dad, and uncles, and everybody. That's when I began to re-think that whole war thing. War is death suffering terror, and waste. Yeah no choice we had to 'stop' the Nazi's. However I sort of got it that war even 'that' one was all about hurting people.
What a confused awful mess.
It was a beginning of my moral life's journey
