This is pure awesomeness to the max. It is like one of the video games one comes across in this modern day and age retelling the battles of world war 2. Complete with tanks, shoot outs, explosions, and more; it's all just so mesmerizing. The animation is so smooth as well. It's rendered very well. The atmosphere, the objects, the debris. I especially like how one of the planes, that is seemingly in the background, suddenly comes at the viewer. It's one of those "shock moments" so often utilized in war films. All this combined together makes this a truly memorable and epic piece of artwork. In a larger sense too, it's taking the scale of these monumental events and compressing them, which makes one wonder, if it is a parody of Hollywood's attempt to over glamorize war or the modern obsession with action. In any case, I congratulate you on a job well done. Great piece of work.

Although I can fairly state that in an actual war everyone would probably be in cover, clamping tightly to their weapon and trying their best not to soil themselves, this is very well done. The animation is smooth, everything looks shaded properly. The detail of the plane crashing in is well done, and adds a nice dimension. I'm just slightly wondering about the date this would be taking place in, due to the ruins and telephone poles, but that might just be me digging too deep for answers.

All in all, well done. I'm usually not into this kind of stuff, but you've managed to grab my attention.

I don't think I'd be alive at the time of World War IV, even if World War III were to happen. :p
