Germany Corpsman Hitler, US Navy?

Of all the family names you could have during World War II, one was especially bad in the Allied world: Hitler. But for William Patrick Hitler of Liverpool, England, having the name wasn’t the worst part. He was actually the nephew of Adolf Hitler, the chancellor and Führer of Nazi Germany. Grappling with that reality would launch him on a zigzag path leading to Germany, England, America, and finally the US Navy, where he would help fight his uncle’s Nazi regime.
