Dearest Mom and Pop,
Well so far I am doing fine. We have had a couple of tests so far and I have about a 90 average. I just hope I can keep it up.
In lab we have been learning how to solder with electric solder. I got through before anyone else so he asked me to help the rest of the girls. He said mine was very good.
In a couple of weeks we are going to start building our own sets. That is what I am going to like.
We wear dungarees to class now. They are green. They have pants and a sort of coat for the top. They will take a lot more wear than overalls. It will also save wear and tear on our winter greens. I got a pair that fit fine.
On Tuesdays and Thursdays we have gym. Tonight was our first night. I like it a lot. We have exercises for half an hour and then play games or dance for the other half hour. At least it will help keep us physically fit. In the Summertime there is a pool nearby where we also can take swimming as part of our P.E.
Today it snowed here. I was sure glad that I had my boots. However, this afternoon it was sunshiny, but the wind was real cold.
I better sign off for now and get between the sheets before the Sgt comes around.
Lots of love,
Oleta “Tillie” Gross, USMCWR

There were a number of reasons why the British First Airborne at Arnhem and ultimately Operation Market Garden failed. The most significant was the failure to capture Nijmegen Bridge the first day.
Major-General James Gavin’s 82nd Airborne Division was told to prioritized and hold Groesbeek Heights, which overlooked the Reichswald to the south-east of Nijmegen. It was thought the German 406th infantry was hidden there with armored support. (This was actually completely false, there was no German presence)
Their delayed advance on Nijmegen bridge (seven hours) allowed the German SS 10th Panzer division to advance north to Arnhem, dig in and reenforced the north side of the bridge, preventing its capture. It wasn’t until the third day of the operation when British XXX corps arrived with tanks, that Nijmegen was captured along side the 82nd Airborne.
The Germans also effectively blocked the road north delaying the Allied breakthrough another 2 days. By this point it was too late for the paratroopers in Arnhem. Elements of the 9th SS Panzer Division and 10th SS Panzer Division surrounded and decimated the British 1st Airborne Division. Of the 10,000 men who had landed to take Arnhem, 1,400 were killed and over 6,000 captured; only 2,400 paratroopers managed to safely cross to the south bank of the Rhine and withdraw.
🔶Comment what you would take as a war trophy if you fought in World War Two🔶
I realize I already posted this, but it was a very long time ago, and many of you most likely have not seen me post it.
This photo actually was on the cover of 'YANK' Magizine, in the Continental Edition which came out on January 14th of 1945. The title was "Present Arms" and featured Pfc. Robert Leigh.
Just look at the collection he has here!! It's his collection of enemy German weapons taken by the 83rd Infantry during the defeated battle at Hürtgen Forest.
The collection includes an MP.38 and various MP.40's, also two German Machine guns being an MG-34 and MG-42.
Personally, I would have loved to have acquired an MP.40 for myself if I fought in WW2. I just love the weapon: the look, the sound, everything. Everyone had their personal goal of what to take home as a trophy during the war. And many times it was the German Luger P08, as it was a very interesting and effective pistol that could be sold for quite a sum of cash. Also, acquiring a Luger means you or your unit took down an officer or a higher ranking German, as they were the ones who were equipped with them.
If I fought in the Pacific theater, I would have strived to acquire a Nambu, which looked like a Luger in a way, and could also be sold for quite a sum. That is, if I made it out...

This week marks the 74th anniversary of Operation Market-Garden (17th-25th September 1944) - the Allied plan to secure a series of bridges in the Netherlands in order to get across the Rhine river and into Germany in late 1944. Various Allied airborne divisions were to parachute into Nazi occupied Holland and capture and secure the bridges, allowing for British armour (XXX Corps led by General Brian Horrocks) to pass through from just north of Leopoldsburg in Belgium to the Rhine at Arnhem.
It was not to succeed; the operation was marred by poor planning, stiff German resistance and logistical failures. The various allied players, the US 101st and 82nd Airborne, British 1st Airborne and Polish 1st Independent Parachute brigade could not link XXX Corps to each bridge in effective time. Had they done so, Allied armour would have rolled up the one continuous road (later dubbed hell’s highway), crossed each bridge (at Son, Veghel, Nijmegen and Arnhem) and punched a hole directly through the German lines.
Due to strong Nazi defences (including 2 SS panzer divisions), only one battalion of paratroopers of the British 1st Airborne was able to reach Arnhem Bridge. They held onto the northern end of the bridge before being overwhelmed by incredible odds. The other elements of the 1st Airborne Division were engaged in bitter fighting around the town of Oosterbeek.
One could argue that the plan’s failure was partly down to the sheer vanity of its creator, Field Marshal Bernard Montgomery, who wanted to be the ‘one’ to lead the Allies into Germany, into Berlin and to ultimate Victory. It was not to be and maybe the failure of this plan could be seen as another signifier of Britain’s dwindling prospects of being a key super power in a world that was dramatically changing. The British 1st Airborne lost nearly 8,000 men killed, wounded or captured in the Battle of Arnhem. The operation to ‘end the war by christmas’ never came to fruition. We must never forget. #war #arnhem #marketgarden #history #20thcentury #ww2 #worldwar #warfare #worldwar2 #holland #netherlands #1944 #20thcentury #usa #germany #poland #britain #monty #battle #education
The picture above shows a German Tiger II, Konigstiger - “King Tiger”, Apart of the 503rd Heavy Panzer Battalion, In Budapest,1944.
The King Tiger was one of Hitler’s last gambles, a “Wunderwaffe” (miracle weapon), set to reverse the situation, taking part in the Normandy campaign, Battle Of The Bulge, in the last major German offensive, “Operation Wacht Am Rhein”, and in the defense of Germany thereafter. Beyond the propaganda newsreels and its formidable appearance, the last German wartime heavy tank was a very costly, over engineered, fragile and fuel glutton lumbering beast prone to breakdowns. 492 King Tigers were manufactured during the years 1943-1945, each king tiger costed $320,000 each, making it the most expensive tank during the Second World War.

The British major who brought an umbrella into battle!
Troops knew Major Digby Tatham-Warter by the umbrella he carried because, as he said, he "couldn't remember passwords and anyone would recognize the bloody fool carrying the umbrella as an Englishman." When a fellow officer told him "that thing won't do you any good", he replied "Oh my goodness Pat, but what if it rains?
During the Battle of Arnhem, part of Operation Market Garden, he disabled a German armoured car with his umbrella, incapacitating the driver by shoving the umbrella through the car's observational slit and poking the driver in the eye. Digby contributed greatly to the morale of the defenders, and even when defeat was imminent, spirits were always very high.
Out of ammunition and cut off from the rest of the Allied forces, Digby and his men send a last radio message – “out of ammo, God save the King” – and surrendered. Having been wounded, Digby was sent to a local hospital upon being captured where he eventually escaped with a fellow officer. He was awarded the Distinguished Service Order upon his return to the United Kingdom.
(Photo: The character Major Carlyle (played by Christopher Good) in the 1977 epic war film 'A Bridge Too Far' was based on real-life Major Digby.)

Venise, la ville romantique par excellence... Mais connaissez-vous l'Histoire de ses ruelles?
C'est dans la nuit du 5 au 6 juillet 1944 que trois soldats fascistes sont assassinés dans les rues du Sestiere de Cannaregio. Parmi eux, un leader local : le Maréchal de Marine Bortolomeo Asara. Une liste des éléments perturbateurs potentiels au régime est rapidement dressée. Deux jours plus tard, en représailles à cette attaque, les milices sont lancées à la traque des opposants dans la ville et n'ont qu'un but : opérer une vengeance sanglante. Chaque unité se voit confier un nom, puis le rituel est identique : invitation à suivre les fascistes au commissariat, puis au bout de quelques mètres, une balle dans la tête, le corps sera ensuite laissé à terre pendant deux jours en guise d'avertissement. Parmi les 6 opposants présumés assassinés ce jour-là: Ubaldo Belli, instituteur de 50 ans. Aujourd’hui, ce pont porte son nom. Passant, souviens-toi en le franchissant.
Venice, the romantic city par excellence ...
But do you know the history of its streets?
It was in the night of July 5 to 6th, 1944 that three fascist soldiers were murdered in the streets of Sestiere de Cannaregio. Among them, a local leader: Marshal Marine Bortolomeo Asara. A list of potential disruptive elements to the plan is quickly drawn up. Two days later, in retaliation for this attack, the militias are launched to track opponents in the city and have one goal: to carry out a bloody revenge. Each unit is given a name, then the ritual is identical: invitation to follow the fascists at the police station, then after a few meters, a bullet in the head, the body will then be left on the ground for two days as a warning . Among the 6 alleged opponents murdered that day: Ubaldo Belli, 50-year-old teacher. Today, this bridge is named in his memory. Walker, remember crossing it.
