"Don't Take Chances - Fire! First Lieutenant P. U. Zachman, platoon leader, FRANCE, emphasizes this tip to tankers: When you are operating tanks without infantry or light tanks in front of you, don't be afraid to fire both your 75-mm and your .30-caliber guns at anything that might be a likely enemy position. A .30-caliber machine gun on the antiaircraft mount comes in handy; it can be operated more easily than the .50-caliber and enables the tank commander to stay lower in the turret while he is firing it. The more plentiful supply of 30-caliber ammunition is an additional advantage. COMMENT: Ammunition is not always as plentiful as it may seem. It does not take a tank long to burn up several thousand rounds of machine-gun ammunition. For that reason, crews should be instructed to fire at suspected targets or likely antitank positions but not at random.’” (Original excerpt) Cartoon published in "Combat Lessons No. 6, Rank and file in combat: What they are doing, How they do it."

-STORY MODE Catherine Dior résistante durant la 2nd guerre mondiale à été arrêté en juin 1944 elle fut arrêté par la GESTAPO et déportée au camp de concentration de REVENDBRÜCK. En mai 1945, elle quitta le camp grâce à un train où il y avait d'autres réfugiés qui se dirigé vers Paris. CHRISTIAN DIOR nomma son parfum MISS DIOR, en hommage à sa sœur. L'un des plus grands parfums est certainement le parfum avec la plus belle histoire. Les apparences sont parfois trompeuses. Qui aurait cru que ce parfum que tout le monde connaît pour son incroyable senteur aurait une histoire aussi poignante. #truestory #MODE #paris #1944 #dior #christiandior #fashion #mood #history #parfum #follow4followback

Soldiers of the 2nd Battalion, Cameronians (Scottish rifles) march in the mountains of Italy, November 1943. The 2nd Battalion of the Cameronians participated in the Battle of France in 1940 as part of the 13th Infantry Brigade in the 5th Division of the British Expeditionary Force, and were evacuated in Dunkirk. They then saw action in the invasion of Sicily in July 1943 as well as in the Moro River and Anzio campaigns which was when this photo was taken. They were then moved to western Europe to take part on the North Western Campaign in early 1945 ending in May. #cameronians #dunkirk #bef #anzio #britisharmy #scotland #wwii #ww2 #wehrmacht #waffenss #ss #war #battle #1939 #1940 #1941 #1942 #1943 #1944 #1945 #historiansunion

14 Kasım 1944 bu tarih, Türk ve Dünya tarihinin en acı günlerinden birisidir. Ata topraklarım Ahıska bölgesinden, 14 Kasım 1944 yılında 2 saat içinde 90 bin 538 kişi topraklarından, anılarından, evlerinden, hayatından, eşinden, dostundan zorla kopartılarak hayvan vagonları ile bilinmezliğe doğru sürgün edildi. Bir ay kadar süren bu sürgünde, binlerce soydaşımız yollarda açlık, hastalık ve soğuktan hayatını kaybetti. Zalim Stalin'in aldığı insanlık dışı bu karar halen daha sürmektedir. 74.yılında Ahıska Türklerinin sürgününü rahmetle anıyoruz.

🇫🇷: Hans Georg Henke, allemand de la jeunesse hitlérienne âgé de seize ans, fait prisonnier dans l'état de Hesse, en Allemagne. Il faisait partie de la brigade anti-aérienne de la Luftwaffe qui a éclaté en sanglots alors que son monde s’écroulait autour de lui. Son père est décédé en 1938 et sa mère en 1944. Il a rejoint la Luftwaffe pour subvenir à ses besoins. Cette photo emblématique de la fin du troisième Reich montrant ce garçon en pleurs suffit à vous faire comprendre à quel point la vie a été terrible pendant la Seconde Guerre mondiale. 🇬🇧: Hans Georg Henke, a sixteen-year-old Hitlerian German, is taken prisoner in the state of Hesse, Germany. He was part of the Luftwaffe anti-aircraft brigade that burst into tears as his world crumbled around him. His father died in 1938 and his mother in 1944. He joined the Luftwaffe to support himself. This iconic picture of the end of the Third Reich showing this boy in tears is enough to make you understand how tragic life was during the Second World War. #Wwii #ww2 #worldwar2 #ww2history #ww2photo #worldwartwo #1939 #1940 #1941 #secondworldwar #1942 #1943 #1944 #1945 #history #french #war #soldier #hitler #guerre #arme #army #reich #fhurer #allemagne #ss #soldat #wehrmacht

🇳🇴 A VIOLENT HISTORY. - (10 photos, slide) 🚜 Next I drove to Kirkenes town (meaning "church headland" after local church of 1862, town status received in 1998). 🤠 Must admit that I prefer wilderness, so I spent just 1 day, my priority was museums + war memorials (still, very nice town & people👌), to gain insight. 📖 I learned about: Sámi, WW2, war crimes, partisans, Arctic convoys, liberation, USSR, iron mining, whale factory, ice-free port, GSV Army garrison. WW2 HISTORY: 💂🏻‍♂️”Festung Kirkenes”, occupied port, strategic base for Wehrmacht’s Kriegsmarine & Luftwaffe's Jagdgeschwader 5 during WW2, game piece of Hitler’s “Operation Barbarossa”. Fortress stocked 9-12 months supplies for 100,000 soldiers. 💥 Kirkenes is 2nd after Valletta of European towns receiving most air attacks in WW2: 1,012 alarms and 328 air attacks! 🚢 USSR sunk 80 Wehrmacht cargo ships along Finnmark, based on Norwegian partisan intel. 🔥 Wehrmacht executed Scorched Earth (burned ca 11,000 houses + 6,000 farms + infrastructure) in October 1944❄️ and fled south. 🕓 In just 4 hours, USSR 14th Rifle Division invaded, eradicating all remaining 5,450 soldiers of the Wehrmacht garrison in fast-paced streetfight bloodbath.💥 🕊 USSR 14th R.Div liberated Kirkenes’ civilian population on 25 October 1944 (regulated by the USSR/USA/UK/NOR agreement of 17 March 1944). Peace! DEMOGR & STATS: 📊 Mix Norwegians/Sámi/Finns/Kvens/Russians, population 3,566 (2017) where 10% Russians, only town in this far north-eastern Norw. region (east of Finland). All street signs in 🇳🇴Norwegian, 🇫🇮Finnish and 🇷🇺Russian languages. 🚂 Kirkenes is terminus of world's 2nd northernmost railway, transporting ore from Bjørnevatn mines (today 🇦🇺#Australian owned). 🌦Climate: Daily mean 0.1°C/32.2°F, Record low −41.8°C/-43.2°F, Record hi 32.7°C/90.9°F.

On 'Poppy day' the Royal British Legion Holland Branch traditionally organizes a Memorial service at the Airborne Cemetery in Oosterbeek. Our association once again had the honour to be invited to act as an Guard of Honour at the entrance of the cemetery and to attend the ceremony afterwards. We are very humbled that the Royal British Legion gives us theire trust in performing the special duty. It was a moving service, exactly 100 years after the and of world War one. We will remember them.

Panzerkampfwagen IV(Panzer IV)adalah sebuah kereta kebal Jerman yang dibangunkan pada akhir 1930-an dan digunakan secara meluas semasa Perang Dunia Kedua.Panzer IV adalah kereta kebal Jerman yang paling banyak dihasilkan dan kenderaan tempur berperisai kedua yang paling banyak dibuat oleh Jerman dalam Perang Dunia Kedua, dengan sekitar 8,500 dibina.Panzer IV telah digunakan sebagai pangkalan untuk banyak kenderaan pertempuran lain, termasuk senjata api Sturmgeschütz IV, pemadam tangki Jagdpanzer IV, senapang anti pesawat pesawat Wirbelwind dan pistol Brummbar.Panzer IV berkhidmat di semua tempur yang melibatkan Jerman dan merupakan satu-satunya tangki Jerman yang kekal dalam pengeluaran berterusan sepanjang perang. Ia menerima pelbagai peningkatan dan pengubahsuaian reka bentuk, bertujuan untuk mengatasi ancaman baru, memanjangkan hayat perkhidmatannya. Secara amnya, ini melibatkan peningkatan perlindungan perisai Panzer IV atau menaik taraf senjata mereka, walaupun pada bulan terakhir perang, dengan keperluan mendesak Jerman untuk penggantian kerugian yang cepat,perubahan reka bentuk juga termasuklah penyederhanaan untuk mempercepatkan proses pembuatan.Panzer IV sebahagiannya digantikan oleh tangki sederhana Panther, yang diperkenalkan untuk menentang T-34,walaupun Panzer IV terus sebagai komponen penting dalam formasi perisai Jerman hingga akhir perang. Panzer IV adalah tangki yang paling banyak dieksport dalam perkhidmatan Jerman, dengan sekitar 300 dijual ke Finlandia, Romania, Sepanyol dan Bulgaria. Selepas perang, Syria memperoleh Panzer IV dari Perancis dan Czechoslovakia, yang menyaksikan pertempuran pada Perang Enam Hari 1967(Arab-Israel). 8,553 Panzer IVs dari semua versi dibina semasa Perang Dunia II, dengan hanya pengeluaran 10,086 kenderaan perisai senjata api / tangki StuG III yang melampaui jumlah Panzer IV di kalangan pasukan perisai Axis. ▫▫▫▫▫▫▫▫▫▫▫▫▫▫▫▫ #gestapo #unitedwarfronts #conspiracy #secret #nazi #wehrmacht #waffenss #luftwaffe #1945 #1940 #1944 #1939 #hitler #axis #wehrmacht #worldwartwo #thirdreich #german #deutchland #hitler #axis #worldwartwo #nazism #jews #holocaust #adolfhitler #history #sad #end #history #hugoboss #kar98 #PUBG #Berlin #warthunder

[Exploration] Le 26 juillet dernier, un de nos membres est parti à la recherche de la grotte des Fées dans le Vercors. Cette grotte est celle où s'est abrité Jean Prévost (Capitaine Goderville) et d'autres maquisards du Vercors pendant une semaine entre l'ordre de dispersion le 23 juillet et le 29 juillet (30 ou 31 juillet, selon les sources). La grotte est bien indiquée sur les cartes IGN mais aucun accès n'est permis. Il faut savoir que c'était la deuxième tentative pour notre membre, la première ayant été un échec. Remis sur la voie par nos amis de l'association "Les amis d'Herbouilly" que nous remercions, c'est après 1h30 d'exploration à la localisation GPS, dans une végétation dense et à flanc de rocher que notre membre a pu retrouver la grotte des Fées, 74 ans jour pour jour où elle était occupée par Prévost et ses compagnons (parmi lesquels le Cpt Bouysse, le Lt Raymond, le Lt Jullien du Breuil, Rémy Lifschitz et Léa Blain). Autre découverte à l'intérieur de la grotte, une inscription, "Eymar Laurent 1944". Les Maquisards et Pionniers du Vercors ont pu nous fournir les renseignements suivants, merci à eux ! Laurent Eymar est né le 24 avril 1912 à Saint-Agnan-en-Vercors. Domicilié aux Vallets, Saint-Agnan-en-Vercors. Il est cultivateur. Sur l’ordre du maire de Saint-Agnan, Marcel Achard le réquisitionne pour devenir son bras droit. De mars au 22 août 1944, il participe à du ravitaillement, conduit des maquisards dans des camps et participe à la réception de parachutages à Vassieux.Il n'est, à priori, pas membre du maquis au sens strict mais parmi ceux qui apportent une aide au maquis (ravitaillement etc...). #Dissidence44 #Ww2 #1944 #Memoire #Memory #Resistance #Vercors #Maquis #FFI #History #Histoire
