The Second World War has a unique position in popular memory as a "good war", particularly when compared with the First World War. Fought by the United Nations (as the Allies referred to themselves) against the tyranny of Nazism and the aggression of the Japanese, the victorious conclusion of the fighting ended many appalling crimes against humanity and justified all the sacrifices made by the men on the right side. Now, whenever the morality of a war is discussed, it is always measured against the yardstick of the Second World War. It has become the war that justifies war. - Matthew Parker, Monte Cassino (ISBN 0-385-50985-5, 2004), p.IX
