“United we stand. Divided we fall.
Divided the Dark ages return.
United we can save and guide the world.”
Winston Churchill (1941)
“I had the privilege of visiting some remote battlefield locations in the Solomon Islands with friend and historian Bryan Stefancyk, owner of WAR HISTORIAN, LLC BATTLEFIELD EXPEDITIONS battlefield-expeditions.war-historian.com.
This little film is simply a highlight of some moments taken during our explorations and recce of some of the most significant battlefields of the Second World War. For me, this was one of the most unique professional opportunities of my life. I’ve been interested in The Second World War for a very long time and I never imagined that I would have a chance to see these places with my own eyes.”
