The subtitle of this article is derived from the last line of the 1979 Steven Spielberg comic film 1941. Historical character Major General Joseph W. Stillwell (played by Robert Stack) responds to the assertion by fictional character Sergeant Frank Tree (played by Dan Aykroyd) that, “You know, this year wasn’t the big year of the war, ‘41. I think the really big year is going to be 1942.”Stillwell sighs and says, “It’s gonna be a long war.” Source: Internet Movie Database, 1941, available at http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0078723/quotes
