Keep Calm and Carry On:


There is no substitute for victory. – General Douglas MacArthur

World War II was a global war from 1939-1945. The majority of the world’s countries formed two opposing military alliances––the Allies and the Axis. The most global war in history, it directly involved more than 100 million people from more than 30 countries. Participating nations threw their entire economic, industrial and scientific capabilities behind the war effort, blurring the distinction between civilian and military resources.

“When you go home
Tell them of us, and say
For your tomorrow,
We gave our today.”
― Patrick O’Donnell, Into the Rising Sun: In Their Own Words,World War II’s Pacific Veterans Reveal the Heart of Combat


From Pearl Harbor and Midway, to the landing at Normandy; from the Battle of the Bulge to the Battle of Stalingrad; from Guadalcanal to Iwo Jima. There were so many definitive battles and theaters of the Second World War – so many names and dates that will live in infamy.

RR Auction respects those who fought for freedom and right around the globe. We’re honored to curate at auction many historic artifacts relating to WWII. In the past, we’ve offered:

“Top Secret” Operation Overlord strategic revisions two weeks before D-Day: $8,575

TLS amazing eyewitness account of the attack on Pearl Harbor: $5,268
