A British soldier spared Hitler's life


Best of Web

Let’s Begin…

Adolf Hitler, Nazi leader of Germany, got his start fighting in the trenches of World War One. Many don't know that history could have been changed on the battlefield if Henry Tandey, a British solider, had shot an unarmed Hitler when he had the chance. 

All actions that we take will have results and consequences. We don't know what effects will come as a result of our choices. Did Tandey do the right and moral thing on the battlefield? That is a discussion that does not have a clear answer. What we do have to understand is that for every action we take, there will be an outcome.
