Below is an animated GIF which is popular on Twitter and a lot of blogs. You might take offense of the lighthearted way the author has chosen to display such epic and dramatic events. But looks past that and you see a mini documentary and different view on a story that has been told many times, but never like this.

More traditional thinkers might say that this is NOT the way to tell a story about World War II. I think a comedian/artist/story teller can use any form he likes as long as he gets the original concept across. Humor is a very normal tool for people to grasp dramatic and traumatic events. 

I think this is the first time I watched a documentary about the events leading up to the second world war and followed what happened and who did what to whom.

This is more than just funny. It is a work of art.
