Dr. Bacon’s article in the November 2012 NEWSLETTER, titled “The 1 Per Cent,” was very interesting and enjoyable, especially in its praise of our Veterans Day military personnel who fought the great wars for a democratic country. Veterans Day, for the young readers, is a new name for the original Armistice Day, celebrating the end of World War I between Germany, France, England and the United States. This war ended in 1918. In many ways, the outcome and conditions of the treaty were the foundations that led to World War II, because the conditions over time severely restricted the German people and government. Politics in Germany changed, letting radical politicians take charge, instituting Socialism, Nazism and contributing to World War II.
