It’s your time to shine WW II experts! I myself am very interested in World War II and am writing a novel set during the war. I know a lot, but of course I don’t know everything. So I’m trying to create a network of people who I can go to for historical information on invasions, weapons, training, ect. I’ve done loads of research but still have many questions. So please message me if you think you’d be able to help me.
The term “the whole nine yards” came about during World War Ii. The ammo belts in fighting planes were nine yards long. The pilot would often shout “Give ‘em the whole nine yards!” Meaning, give them everything you’ve got.
