Martial Arts is combat. Its excellence demands study. Whether it expresses itself in a one-to-one clash or in a global conflict, serious students must pay serious attention to the art of war. Survival demands it. Failure laments it.

The American Heroes Channel (AHC) has produced a four part series entitled World War II: Witness to War in color. It is highly recommended that contemplative martial art students watch this excellent series which reveals the horrific complexity, reality, tragedy and necessity of war.

War is never pretty but in some cases it is absolutely required. Since the beginning of time there have always been madmen seeking to destroy others and promote themselves in glorifying their demented vanity, insanity and lust for power. Such lunatics must be stopped. War is often the only answer. As the great Winston Churchill noted, “Those that fail to learn from history are doomed to repeat it.” In simple words: Learn from history! Don’t neglect it! Study it!

World War II: Witness to War is a series worth watching and studying. Watch it on the American Heroes Channel, or check with your TV provider.

Four Episodes (1 hour, 3 minutes each):

  1. Fall of France
