Second world war soldiers helped to turn the tide of the war with their prevailing spirit of living for the moment. Their resolute spirits carried the allies through this long and dangerous war.

We will explore how good news was exploited for propaganda to boost the spirits back home and cause unrest among the enemy, chink their armour, and demoralise their army.

Most importantly, we will remember those who died for their country, reflecting on how the sacrifice of those who were brave in stepping forward to fight led to hope of victory and survival for others.

We will be adding more stories about #resolution throughout the project.
