Yes, you read that right! Since you all are what makes our work possible, we want to let you chime in on what we should do next. We’ve put together a list of 10 fascinating people who were all involved in WW2 in one way or another, and we want YOU to decide which of them you want us to make Bio Specials on!
The rules are very simple:
- Vote in the comments. Vote for as many of the contenders as you want, but you can’t vote for the same person twice. (Unless you find our posts in other forums…)
- The poll is open for 24h – it ends 11pm CET/5pm EST May 17.
- The 3 contenders with the most votes when the poll closes will get a WW2 Bio Special!
