Always in My Heart is a 1942 American drama film directed by Jo Graham and starring Kay Francis and Walter Huston. The song "Siempre en Mi Corazón" ("Always in My Heart"), by Ernesto Lecuona (music and Spanish lyrics) and Kim Gannon (English lyrics) was nominated for an Oscar for Best Original Song. MacKenzie Scott (Walter Huston), a brilliant musician, is falsely convicted of murder and sentenced to life.

Harwell contains two 13th-century houses, each of which is a Grade II listed building. The airfield was used in World War II to launch troop-carrying military gliders for the invasion of Normandy. Lime Tree Cottage in High Street was built about 1250 and remodelled about 1300. It was the site of Europe's first nuclear reactor in 1946, and once had five nuclear reactors, all of which have been shut down. Two have been completely dismantled, and the other three will be decommissioned by 2022.

Written home during World War II by soldiers, nurses, pilots, and doctors . The letters from World War II came from both Allied and Nazi troops. Fans of World War Two history will enjoy this book.

Written home during World War II by soldiers, nurses, pilots, and doctors from over 20 Allied and Axis countries, the letters collected by Adler are often without much emotional content; descriptions of scenery, customs, local foods, and weather predominate. A few are truly interesting pieces, like the letter from a nun describing what it was like living through an atomic bomb attack. Instead of a top-down, view from a leader's position, this book gives the reader insights into the thoughts of those who served on the front lines, on both sides of the war.

Rarely do war games enlighten as well as entertain

Rarely do war games enlighten as well as entertain. Valiant Hearts does both. Hundreds of video games are set during World War II and hardly any-save a few hardcore simulations like the Victoria series-are set in World War I. Which makes a lot of sense. One assassination set off a chain of events that killed more than 16 million people. Armies used chemical weapons for the first time on a vast scale. Soldiers lived in trenches while their friends rotted beside them. It was a bloody, brutal and complicated era of history. What was it all for? Historians still wrestle with these questions.

Coleman Harwell, who passed away in 1987, was the successful and respected editor of the Nashville Tennessean for many years and later publisher of the Cookeville (Tennessee) Herald and Citizen. He enlisted to serve his country overseas during World War II, even though his eyesight would have disqualified him, had he wanted to remain out of the service. Always in My Heart shares the collected wartime correspondence between Coleman, stationed in England and Italy, and his young wife, Ann, who rose to the task of parenting their young daughters in Nashville, Tennessee with grace and good humor. In reading this collection, we not only learn of the challenges that wartime brought to both those served and those who remained at home, but we observe and marvel at the deep devotion that shines through the loving letters Coleman and Ann exchanged. Ann Harwell Wells has compiled and edited her parents' letters, and has added pertinent commentary to help the reader place the letters in the historical period in which they were written.
