Bullet Points

Image 1 / 4

These are the some of the key conflicts of the 20th Century, illustrated in detailed re-enactments that demonstrate the tactical genius and mental fortitude required to achieve victories in war. The Battle for the Pacific is first up, demonstrating how the military behemoth of the United States subdued the Japanese threat after the shock of Pearl Harbour. Following on from WWII, witness how the shadow of communism forced America to confront North Korea, themselves supported by China and the Soviet Union. Also featured in are the conflicts involving Arabs and Israelis in the Middle East, the 12-year-long Vietnam War that cost over 60,000 lives, and Operation Desert Storm.
