In the Second World War, that began in 1939, over two years before America finally contributed its important weight, a great evil crossed a line that caused fine men and women in most of the free countries of the world to make any sacrifice necessary to stop it and crush the life from it. That evil took the people of Mozart and Beethoven and Goethe and used real and perceived injustices stemming from the previous war, added in a mysticism, ethnic nationalism and xenophobia that appealed to the German and the wider Germanic nation and caught those people up in its truly evil pursuits. Other than Stalin's Soviet evil, none of the western powers that allied themselves against Hitler or the Japanese hoped for war or wanted war. Thank God our fathers and mothers and grandfathers and grandmothers had the fortitude to risk it all and in many cases give their all. They took the fight to them to make sure we would have a world worth living in.
