In this image it portrays how two U.S. navy aircrafts are above the “aircraft carrier USS Hornet (CV-12) before landing, following strikes on Japanese shipping in the China Sea, circa mid-January 1945.” The photographer, Charles Kerlee, was sent to capture the truth about the USS Yorktown during World War 2. I believe that this assignment was really dangerous, but also very important. It was important because someone needed to document the truth about the war and how it affected many humans.

In the film “Dunkirk” the characters had to be sent to war which is know now as world war 2. They go through many obstacles that are expected to have when you’re at war. This film is pretty sad, but also very interesting since it does show you how the soldiers took control and how they were during world war 2. This movie really relates to my conflict, World War 2, because some parts that happened in the movie probably happened in the war in the 1930’s.
