This is a series of fascinating illustrations detailing six possible scenarios whereby the Axis Powers would invade the United States during World War Two. These appeared in the March 2, 1942 issue of Life magazine, when war fever, fear and paranoia was at a high pitch. All of these plans are horrifying, and would have included landings on the shorelines and bloody battles fought in American cities. Luckily, none of these plans ever came to fruition, as the two gigantic oceans that flank North America proved an insurmountable obstacle, among other things - namely our rapid mobilization to get, en masse, to their
area of the world first. This, perhaps more than any other historical fact, proves to me that geography is destiny. Via all that is interesting.
