"For more than five decades Kenneth W. Rendell has been on a mission. His objective: "Saving the Reality" of man's greatest conflict, World War II. With over 6,000 original WWII artifacts and rare documents on display, Rendell has, for the first time, allowed a documentary film crew to chronicle his Museum of World War II's incredible gathering of the most comprehensive items anywhere depicting the war years. From the end of World War I and the rise of Nazism to the start of World War II and the fight in Europe and the Pacific, Rendell's display of WWII artifacts and documents has been called the "greatest in the world" by famed historian Stephen E. Ambrose. The museum's exhibits are recognized as the most complete in the world and numerous pieces have been loaned for exhibitions to other collections, from California to Berlin, the Holocaust Museum to London's Imperial War Museum. The Museum of World War II, once private, is now available for all to experience. "Saving the Reality" of World War II, the mission of Ken Rendell, has finally been 'declassified'"--Container.
