Did you know that dozens of popular celebrities, actors and entertainers fought in the Second World War? From Oscar winning Hollywood stars to TV comedy heroes, the story of their bravery is as entertaining as their on screen performances.

From Purple Heart to Atlantic Star, many were awarded for their gallantry in battle and several were actually intelligence officers and spies.

Discover the truth about those men who were often war heroes in movies, but were also war heroes in real life.

Paul Newman, Henry Fonda, Sir Alec Guiness, Anthony Quayle, Lee Marvin, Christopher Lee, Richard Attenborough, Tony Curtis and Donald Pleasence are just a few of those who fought for freedom in World War II.
