When we think about the Second World War, we often think about the valiant Americans that stormed the beaches of Normandy or the stouthearted Soviets that held off waves of German forces at Stalingrad. It is truly unfortunate that most people think that a 'world war' means US, Russia, England Germany and Japan. Few people know that in Hitler sent an encoded telegram to Mexico, asking them to join their cause and declare war on the US. The US was a powerful nation during WWI, but we were already fighting a two front war. If Mexico had allied with Germany they could have easily invaded from the south, but instead the Mexican Air Force fought alongside the US in the Pacific Theater. Here are four members of Mexico's 201st Air Force Squadron.
