NORRISTOWN, PA—Despite receiving a “check-plus” on his three-page school project entitled “World War II,” fourth-grader Joe Fisher’s work grossly overlooks the full significance of Allied air offensives in Europe and the Pacific, his uncle Ron, 51, reported Tuesday. “What [Joe] failed to grasp was the importance of sustained bombing raids conducted across the Western Front, not to mention the decisive aerial assaults on the Imperial Japanese Navy,” said Ron Fisher about his 9-year-old nephew’s handwritten, stapled, and illustrated report. “Are we actually to believe, as Joe’s report supposes, that a few isolated beach landings in the European theater turned the tide of the war? Frankly, that overstates the case to an embarrassing degree.” Fischer reportedly spent the next 90 minutes detailing how teething problems in the R-2600 engines of Curtis XB2C-1 prototypes were eventually smoothed out in the SB2C service models.
