Not many people, including Brazilians themselves, are fully aware of the country's involvement in World War II. In reality, the country sent many battalions and Monumento Nacional aos Mortos da Segunda Guerra Mundial is dedicated to those who lost their lives in the European theater of war, especially in Italy. The monument includes a small museum with military artifacts from those dark years, a mausoleum and the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier.
