Until the last couple
decades, people of the world recognized and called out evil by name when it
reared its ugly head. Except for subversive imbedded agents, media outlets -
radio, television, print, speeches, etc. - openly and vigorously condemned and
attacked the enemy of its country's traditional way of life. The theme ran deep
and wide in news reports and in magazine features. This advertisement for
Air Adventures magazine which appeared in early 1940s Radio News
magazine is an example. In the place of politically correct speech that doesn't
dare to offend an entity which openly and maniacally seeks to kill you we had
the vast majority of media promoting nationalism and patriotism in order to
defeat the enemy. We sought not to "understand" but to destroy our deadly foes.
Now, those who desire the destruction of traditional Western civilization hold
high offices in the various countries. Careful what you wish for...
As with just about everything, eBay is a good source of these vintage
magazines. This particular publication only ran for three editions. However,
there were plenty of other titles that featured stories of heroic adventures
against the Nazi scum ;-) Flying Aces magazine had the adventures
Kerry Keen and Barney O'Dare thwarting German and Japanese forces during
World War II, and
Philip Strange confounding German troops during World War I.

Nazi Bombers Over Scotland
Swiftly the Nazi bomber roared toward its objective, the Spitfire in close pursuit!
Whitey Trail dove grimly down his motor thundering a promise of death to the bomber!
In a moment the great bridge below would be blown to bits, unless Trail stopped
the Nazi raider! Down ... down ... down, like a flashing comet ... then Whitey Trail
sobbed, broke, whirled the plane viciously away. Before his eyes loomed the up-thrust
pylons of the bridge. Pylons! Always pylons! Trail couldn't stand pylons. They made
him remember something ... something that threw utter terror into his soul! An unreasoning,
resistless terror that made a coward of him. Dimly through his fear-clouded brain
he heard the roar of exploding bombs. The Nazi bomber had reached his objective!
And he, Whitey Trail, could have prevented it. Why hadn't he? Why did he go into
a blue funk at the mere sight of the pylons? Don't fail to read the answer in
