Triumph and Tragedy - European Theater

Item #:  

Product Description

It’s said “those that don’t learn from history are doomed to repeat it.”  As the world faces uncertain times, this is an adage worth remembering.  World War II will stand throughout history as one of the premier examples of a war that just had to be fought.  As ambitious as he was evil, Adolf Hitler took advantage of Europe’s reluctance to muster armies so soon after WWI, unleashing the Nazi war machine across the continent. He wanted his Third Reich to conquer continental Europe, and he sought to eradicate large numbers of those people he conquered. He came terrifyingly close to succeeding.  Thankfully the United States, Great Britain, the Soviet Union and their allies managed to defeat the Axis Powers and win the war, for themselves and the good of humanity.  This remarkable collection contains a total of eight coins from both the Axis and Allied powers.  Coins like a German 2 Reichmark with a Nazi eagle with swastika, a Polish 50 groshen struck the year before the Nazi invasion or a Canadian V-Nickel struck between 1943 and 1945.  All coins come in a deluxe wooden display case with Certificate of Authenticity and historical booklet.
