A rather neat video showing, day by day, over the entire course of World War II, who controlled which lands in Europe, and the various movements back and forth over time from Germany’s invasion of Poland to Germany’s surrender.
What’s particularly amazing is the long swaths of time where nothing is happening. Of course, you know the war is still going on, but the boundaries aren’t moving for a VERY long time. It really brings home long this thing was. This was no one-month shock and awe and it’s over.
It’s a very cool way of depicting the war.
