Operation Market Garden, 17 september 1944. Sta even stil en beeld je het volgende in: 3 luchtlandingsdivisies, bestaande uit 34,600 soldaten, verdeeld over 5750 vliegtuigen. Beginpunt > Zuid-Engeland eindpunt > Zuidoost-Nederland. Op de foto perfect uitgelegd vanaf welke basis er gevlogen werd en waar hun einddoel zich bevond. Weetje: wist je dat er naast de Amerikanen, Canadezen en de Engelsen ook een Poolse eenheid (1e onafhankelijke Poolse parachutistenbrigade) mee deed aan Operation Market Garden Zoals beloofd deel 2/3. . . . .

Tiger I heavy tanks of the German 2nd SS Panzer Division Das Reich, Kirovograd, Ukraine, December, 1943. Do you think the "Great winter" of the East has stopped Germans?
Riding out—any way you can. ________________ The only information I can gather on this photo is that it was taken during the German retreat from Normandy in August of 1944. Two Fallshirmjäger—German paratroopers—are hitching a ride on the front of what looks like a van of some kind. Transport shortages for the Germans led to a lot of vehicles being commandeered from French civilians, so it wasn’t uncommon to see a varied collection of camouflaged trucks and cars carting German troops, especially during the retreat. . Undoubtedly the toughest German opponents in the opening hours, days, and weeks of the Allied invasion of Normandy in the American sector, the Fallschirmjäger were mostly young highly motivated and well equipped volunteers led by veteran NCOs. They were elite troops; a tenacious and formidable foe, and respectfully earned the title “the Lions of Carentan” after the battle for Carentan from June 10-14, 1944. However, despite all the strength the Germans were able to muster against the Allied lodgement in Normandy that summer, the bitterly fought campaign became one of attrition that the Germans simply couldn’t win. . #TheNormandySeries _ #Historybuff #Historygeek #Historynerd #Historical #MilitaryHistory #20thcentury #Military #History #Warfare #WorldWarII #WorldWar2 #WWII #WW2 #WW2History #SecondWorldWar #Normandy #1944 #Wehrmacht #Luftwaffe #Fallshirmjäger #Paratrooper
British soldiers ride on top of a M4A4 Sherman V of the 23rd Hussars> 29th Armoured brigade, the 11th Armoured Division during Operation Market Garden Sep 1944. The soldiers are part of the 159th Infantry Brigade which formed the 11th Armoured. The division was in support role during market garden covering the right flank of the advancing XXX corps along side the VIII corps while the XII corps covered the left flank. The division was particularly helpful to the US 101st Airborne Division in clearing enemy resistance in towns of Maas and Neuenen. #britisharmy #british #secondworldwar #ww2 #wwii #11tharmoreddivision #operationmarketgarden #1944 #159thinfantrybrigade #29tharmoredbrigade #netherlands #holland #militaryhistory #m4a4sherman #xxxcorps #xiicorps #viiicorps

I guess I was expecting more of a horror movie, especially with that title. This is more drama than anything and doesn't seem to do with curses or cat people at all. Well, I guess maybe that's what was going on in the first film, but this one is about whether or not some little girl is crazy. They think she's crazy because she has imaginary friends, but no real friends and doesn't seem to want any. Their response is the threaten her with beatings, so she lies and ends up making friends with an old lady and makes an imaginary friend... Her dad's wife from the first film. For a film that's barely over an hour, there's a lot going on and some of it doesn't fit it, like the old woman's daughter who becomes jealous of her mother's friendship with the child. It only comes into play for a dramatic moment at the end that's quickly resolved. The child actor was actually very good and seemed distant in reality, yet very innocent and seemed very mature for her age. The mom and dad were so typical '40s white bread, American milquetoast family that even I began to assume that's how all white people are. Dad just sits around drinking brandy by the fire while mom cooks and if anyone does anything to disrupt his reading, it's a stern threat. I'll also give a lot of credit to the cinematography for balancing the greys and blacks and whites to really make this film come alive, especially the end sequence during Christmas. I know it's fake snow and shot on sets, but something about knowing that mixed with that style of lighting puts me in awe. The film is short enough to where it's not too boring, but there's nothing too significant about it. #nowwatching #nowplaying #thecurseofthecatpeople #gunthervonfritsch #simonesimon #kentsmith #janerandoplh #anncarter #shoutfactory #screamfactory #rko #drama #40sdrama #bluray #bluraycollection #moviereview #moviecritic #filmreview #filmcritic #cinephile #1944 #goonreviewsthecurseofthecatpeople
Un témoignage pour ce jour. "1944, carnet de vie" de Jean-marc Dopffer. Une transcription de ce que le grand père de l'auteur lui a raconté de "sa " guerre. Un témoignage émouvant, intéressant car ce n'est pas un témoignage habituel. En effet, nous sommes à Hyères dans le sud de la France, et en compagnie de Lucien, trop jeune pour être réquisitionné pour partir à la guerre, mais qui atteint l'âge idéal pour aller travailler dans les groupes instaurés par le gouvernement de Laval les chantiers de la jeunesse ou jeunes travailleurs. un aspect de la guerre peu connu en tous cas pour ma part. Un récit émouvant qui ramène à ses propres souvenirs. Je me suis vue écoutant les souvenirs de mes grands parents. Un beau moment d'hommage filial. Quatrième de couv.Grâce aux souvenirs d'un témoin direct de cette période trouble, revivez l'occupation, le débarquement de Provence et la libération du Sud de la France.#bookaddict #book #instabook #booklover #instabook #instalivre #instalikes #livre #livres #lecture #livreaddict #like4like #livrestagram #retourdelecture #avisdelecture #avisdelectrice #temoignage #secondeguerremondiale #1944 #carnetdevie #jeanmarcdopffer
On June 7, 1944 (D+1), elements of the 3rd Canadian Infantry Division and 2nd Canadian Armoured Brigade overran Norrey-en-Bessin, a small commune about 7.8 miles (12.5 km) west of Caen. In the vicinity of both Norrey and Caen were elements of the 12th SS Panzer Division Hitlerjugend, namely the division’s 12th and 25th SS Panzer-Grenadier Regiments. The Germans first made moves on the commune on the night of June 8/9th, when the 3rd Company, 1st Battalion, 12th SS Panzer-Grenadier Regiment launched a counterattack supported by 23 Panther tanks. The Canadians, likely men from The Royal Regina Rifles, 7th Infantry Brigade, were able to repel this attack, but the Germans would be back later that day. It was sometime between 12:00 and 12:30 on June 9, 1944 that this second German counterattack against Norrey-en-Bessin came. The initial plan was to have the 3rd Company, 1st Battalion, 12th SS Panzer-Grenadier Regiment attack Norrey, followed by a converging attack by the 1st Battalion, 25th SS Panzer-Grenadiers towards the commune. When the armored column was about half a mile away from Norrey, their route forced the tanks to swing south, thus exposing their flanks to the enemy. As the Panthers made their way towards the commune, they came under disciplined fire by the Canadians. Nine Sherman tanks (which included a few 17-pounder Fireflys), apparently belonging to the Elgin Regiment, 2nd Armoured Brigade, had been moved into the vicinity of the town at nearby Bretteville earlier that day to support the Regina Rifles, who had been told to expect armor support as soon as it was available, and engaged the exposed Panthers as they crept down the road. The Canadian tanks had been positioned more or less in a line. One of the Sherman Fireflys, commanded by a Lt. Henry, fired the first shot, which disabled the Panther column’s lead tank commanded by Adolf Morawetz (who initially believed he had struck a mine), bringing the tank to a halt. A second shot followed, apparently igniting MG-42 ammo, setting the tank alight. Morewetz was the only survivor of his tank, and as he began to make his escape, a second Panther was hit and destroyed. [Continued ↓]
We really wanted to keep the look of our old #wooden #cellardoor when we rebuilt the rotted ones years ago. Unfortunately they didn't last, stop water from getting in, or keep the #🐜🐜🐜 out. Our ultra cooperative landlords hired us a real woodworker to build new doors, made from pressure treated wood that hopefully the ants won't like to live in!

Up above is Michael Wittmann who is probably one of the most well known tank aces of the second world war, he served in the waffen SS leibstandarte 101st heavy panzer battalion. Wittmann was very highly decorated for his actions actions on the battlefield and was personally decorated by adolf Hitler himself, he was a staple of propaganda for Nazi Germany. Before he became the famous Ace, he served as a private, joining the Army in 1934. After two years of service in which he gained the rank of non-commissioned officer, Wittmann joined the SS and later applied for the newly-formed 1st SS -Panzer-Division Leibstandarte SS Adolf Hitler where he acquired his driver training. After participating in the occupation of Austria and Sudetenland, he became a Nazi Party member. After a successful campaign in the Balkans, where Wittmann proved his value driving a Stug III , his division was transferred to assist the German troops on the Eastern Front. Only a month into the campaign, he was awarded the Iron Cross Second Class for superb service against enemy tanks. Wittmann was wounded but refused to abandon the battleground, which won him a Wound Badge. His Iron Cross became First Class after knocking out 6 Soviet tanks in a single engagement. He advanced through the ranks and was offered additional training after which he was finally introduced to his weapon of choice ― the PzKpfw VI Tiger, Wittmann is also very well known for his actions in France where on 13 June 1944.While in command of his tiger 1 tank, he destroyed up to fourteen tanks and fifteen personnel carriers, along with two anti-tank guns, within the space of fifteen minutes. During his career, he recorded 138 tank kills, 132 anti-tank gun kills, and destroyed hundreds of trucks, carriers and artillery. There's even a report that he fired his tank gun at a Russian submarine once, but eventually his huge rack of kills eventually came to a end when he died in his tank the 8th August 1944, in said aienan de-Cramesnil frace. #1940s #1944 #waffenss #SS #panzer #tiger #tankace #ace #worldwar2 #ww2 #war #warriors #ironcross #france #germany #wermarcht #heer #luftwaffe #battle #easternfront #westernfront

Sea Beasts The Yamato-Class: IJN Musashi (武蔵) pt.1 #SeaBeasts Caption: The IJN Musashi on Sea trials; Summer, 1942. I am pleased to present a new series called Sea Beasts. At my leisure I will be posting some of the most formidable warships ( in their own right) laid out to sea. I'd like to start with one of my favorites belonging to the Yamato-Class --- The IJN Musashi. All parts of the Musashi parts can be found on the #HF_Musashi tag. Part [1] Birth of the Musashi The Musashi, like her Sister the Yamato shares the title of being the largest and most heavily armed battleships in history. Musashi during its construction was designated as Battleship Number 2, it would hold the name until August 5, 1942. It was ordered in June of 1937 and laid down on March 29, 1938 at the Mitsubishi Nagasaki Shipyard. Great measures were taken to ensure that the vessel remained a secret project with the entire ship being camouflaged by rope, however it was on one occasion discovered inadvertently by six Russian manned TB-3 bombers with Chinese markings on May 20, 1938. The planes were flying over Fukuoka, Nagasaki, and Sasebo dropping propaganda leaflets and taking photographs and whilst over Nagasaki, a picture of Battleship Number 2 had been taken. It was later reviewed by the United States but brushed over the fact that one of the two largest battleships ever built had just been discovered. Another amazing fact is that a United States Consulate was across the bay where the IJN Musashi was being constructed. Part [1b] Armament and Specifications The Musashi had a standard displacement of 65000 tons and 72800 tons full, with a length of 862 feet, beam of 121 feet and draft of 32 feet. The Musashi was powered by 12 Kanpon oil-fired boilers, had geared steam turbines and 4 screws (propulsion). It generated 150000 shaft horsepower and had of speed of 27 knots. The Musashi held a crew of 2,399 with 7 aircraft (Nakajima E8n / Nakajima E4N) and 2 catapults. The Musashi was armed with 3 Triple 46 cm Type 94 guns, 4 Triple 15.5 cm 3rd Year Type guns, 6 Twin 12.7 cm Type 89 guns, 12 Triple 25 mm Type 96 and 2 Twin 13.2 mm Type 93 AA guns.

Bill Millin (foreground, right) and Lord Lovat (wading, on the right of the column) land on Queen Red Beach, a section of Sword beach. Bill Millin would become world famous for his actions on D-Day. He is best remembered for playing the bagpipes while under fire during the D-Day landings. He played "Highland Laddie" "The Road to the Isles" and "All the blue bonnets are over the border" as his comrades fell around him on Sword. Millin states that he later talked to captured German snipers who claimed they did not shoot at him because they thought he had gone mad. ______________________________________________________ Follow more of the Historians Union: @82nd_rum_runner @factsaboutww2 @ww2_daily_photography @fuehrer_of_photography @krieg.history @w.w.2_history @world_of_warplanes @factsaboutww2 @cassowarycolorizations @historians_union_main ---------------------------------------------------- Hashtags: #historiansunion #ww2 #worldwar2 #america #german #usa #italy #france #wwii #ww2history #ww2photo #drive #green #pacificocean #tank #montgomery #sherman #pilot #army #1941 #1944 #britain #liberation #sherman #soldiers #division #1945 #pacific #marines #normandy #wwiimemorial

Das Vorfeld des Stützpunkts war, wie an vielen anderen Stellen der Normandieküste auch, mit Hindernissen versehen. Einige dieser Hindernisse waren so installiert worden, dass sie sich bei Flut unterhalb der Wasserlinie befanden. Dadurch wollte man erreichen, dass feindliche Landungsboote aufliefen und nach Möglichkeit zum Kentern gebracht wurden (Rommelspargel). Das Gebiet vor dem Widerstandsnest 62 war durch verlegte Landminen zusätzlich geschützt. ===== 🇬🇧 At defense weapons were stationed: - two captured Czech 76.5 mm guns - two 50mm anti-tank guns - two light grenade launchers (caliber 50 mm) - two captured water-cooled Polish machine guns model 1917 (one of them in a bunker) - A twin MG 34 (two barrels side by side) for low-flying defense - an ordinary (single-barreled) MG 34 - an MG 42 in open field position (Hein Severloh) There was also an artillery observation post and two stationary fortress flamethrowers. The apron of the base was, as in many other places on the Normandy coast also, provided with obstacles. Some of these obstacles had been installed so that they were below the waterline at high tide. This was to achieve that hostile landing craft aground and were capsized if possible (Rommelspargel). The area in front of the Strongpoint 62 was additionally protected by laid land mines. ===== #wwii #ww2 #worldwar2 #lestweforget #normandie #dday #ddaylandings #overlord #militaryhistory #combathistory #ww2daily #ww2dailyhistory #war #krieg #history #liberte #historytour #guerre #routesofhistory #historicplaces #militaria #militar #battlefield #battle #1944 #normandy #omahabeach #normandietourisme @dday_history
