    Greetings from a student of the war, living in Canada.

    What do they teach Brazilians about World War Two in school? I know you sent troops to fight in Italy - do they include it in the curriculum of high schools, say? We don't teach a lot about it in our schools, sadly to say.

    Hello Michael,

    What they teach us in school is pretty much the basic story: German aggression, war for freedom, blah blah.

    Brazil was practically forced to war against Germany, even though the Brazilian government wasn't willing to go to war. Some ships were sunk along the Brazilian coastline allegedly by German subs, however, it's now accepted that those ships were in fact hit by american submarines.

    HUH? Yeah, Milos - accepted by whom and under what reasoning? I've heard that there was a flurry of u-boat activity not far from the south american coast, but Brazillian shipping sunk by american subs???????
