Orders orders and more orders this week as both Stalin and Hitler try and get ahold of the vast and chaotic situation along the battlefront, but nefarious war crimes and atrocities continue to lurk in the background. We cover the humanitarian crisis created both deliberately and by collateral effects that the war has on the world population in our War Against Humanity series that is now coming out every second week to keep up with the increasing pace of terror.

Almost every high school history teacher in my school district (St. Vrain Valley School District RE-1J, Longmont Colorado) uses your channel and the great war channel all the time! Isn't it amazing that you and your wonderful production team are responsible for educating hundreds of millions of people all over the world about WWI & WWII in stunning detail?
