Due the critical situation on the Karelian Isthmus in the late-June 1944 the Finns were already retreating from the Ladoga Karelia on May the 24th. Here we see some gunners hauling a 203 H /17. . 32 howitzers were bought during the Winter War from the USA, but they arrived too late to see any action then. Weighing some 8500 kilograms they were not easy to evacuate, so 13 of them were lost in the summer of 1944. This one is saing to be lost in the Ladoga Karelia, meaning that it most likely belonged to the Super-Heavy Artillery Battery 3. .SA-kuva #howitzer #haubitze #haupitsi #tractor #gunner #continuationwar #jatkosota #wwii #ww2 #Secondworldwar #worldwartwo #worldwarii #worldwar2 #ladogakarelia #laatokankarjala #tykistö #artillery #fieldartillery #kenttätykistö

The intrepid 🚢 An ultimate symbol of evolution. Once a state of the art floating fortress. A war machine and symbol of national strength 🇺🇸 In its evolution, it is now a floating museum, a place for education, recreation and learning. Just because you age out of "usefulness" doesn't mean you are not useful. I would say this ship may impact more lives now then it ever did in its stage of intended use. . . . #intrepid #intrepidmuseum #usnavy #worldwar2 #thecoldwar #spacerace #vietnamwar #history #science #service #education #nyc #seas #ships #vessels #museums

Above we have another iconic photo of the Normandy campaign; U.S. soldiers wade ashore off of a Higgins LCVP while under German machine gun fire on Omaha Beach, taken June 6th, 1944. - - 39 Allied Divisions, the bulk of 20 being American, landed on th beaches of Omaha, Utah, Juno, Sword and Gold on the 6th. Accompanied alongside them, were some 10,000 planes and 138 battleships, cruisers and destroyers, alongside with thousands of other ships, making D Day the largest amphibious assault in history. - - The landings at Normandy were kept so secret, that even units conducting the initial assault were not sure of their landing locations. Surprise was crucial since Germany had 55 divisions in France - the Allies could transport no more than 8 divisions on D-Day morning. Their suprise worked, and the allies were able to establish a beachhead in France to constantly transport supplies and men to the front. - However this did not come without a grave cost, from June 6th until the Germans retreated across the Seine on August 30th, there were over 425,000 German and Allied casualties . . . . . #ww2 #worldwar2 #war #history #wwii #worldhistory #tanks #planes #guns #photo #education #warhistory #allies #axis #1945 #1944 #army #military #militaryhistory #colorphotos #warfare #infantry #Germany #photography #learning #America #World #soldiers #quotes

The National Bolshevik Party stands for a fundamental transformation of the economy, focusing on eliminating inefficiencies. Only a global transformation from the status quo to the end of suffering will provide the conditions for international peace, justice, and economic cooperation based on the large-scale transfer of resources and technology from the developed to the developing countries. The National Bolshevik Party stands for the right of workers to freely organize a democratic organization and for national solidarity among working people based on common opposition to the status quo. We believe that the international organization of labor is the only way of combating the status quo. - Comrades @that.anticap.ml @cabbage.comm @the.collectivists @partyofgod_ @thatonegayleftist @soviet19172017 @leftist.revolution @authoritarian.axis @dutch.nazbol @the.leftists.vborg @the.leftists.v1991 @nc.nationalbolshevik - #communism #communist #memes #historymemes #history #leninism #leninist #socialism #socialist #capitalismsucks #worldwar2 #worldwar1 #worldwars #geography #worldhistory #worldgeography #sovietunion #lenin #stalin #soviet #sovietrussia #russia #putin #stalin #lenin #mao #vladimir #vladimirputin #traditionalist #traditionalism #left
Some vacation greetings from 1916! I thought an idyllic shot was a nice way to end a long Monday. The Schwarzatal is a valley in the region of Eastern Thüringen in Germany. The Schweizerhaus on this picture still exists today! It changed owners a couple times, and reopened in 2013. Currently it has 3,6 star rating on Google. Imagine telling the tourists who stayed there in 1916 that they have to wait 100 years and then they can rate their stay online. 😄 #worldwar1 #ww2 #ww1 #landscape #german #deutsch #deutschland #thüringen #schwarzatal #kaiserreich #kaiser #geschichte #historynerd #history #idyllic #river #worldwar2 #postcard #photography #germany 🇩🇪 #schweiz #haus
George Patton, in full George Smith Patton, Jr., (born November 11, 1885, San Gabriel, California, U.S.—died December 21, 1945, Heidelberg, Germany), U.S. Army officer who was an outstanding practitioner of mobile tank warfare in the European and Mediterranean theatres during World War II. His strict discipline, toughness, and self-sacrifice elicited exceptional pride within his ranks, and the general was colourfully referred to as “Old Blood-and-Guts” by his men. However, his brash actions and mercurial temper led to numerous controversies during his career. He was born to a rich family where he had a easy childhood. In his teens he was interested in many military history books specially ones about the American Civil War as he had relatives who fought in it. In college he studied at the Virginia Military Institute and then transferred to the U.S. Military Academy at West Point, New York graduating in June 1909,Patton was commissioned as a second lieutenant in the cavalry. Patton first saw action When Mexican revolutionary Pancho Villal ed an attack on the border town of Columbus, New Mexico, in 1916, Though the mission failed to apprehend Villa, Patton was responsible for leading a raid that killed three of Villa’s men. The attack garnered much publicity and was notable for being the first time that automobiles had been used in combat by the U.S. Army. During ww1 he go to the rank Colonel and was awarded Distinguished Service Cross for bravery under fire also during the war he was the first officer to be appointed to the new U.S Army Tank Corps. He first saw action in WW2 during the landings of Casablanca in northern Africa. in March 1943 led the U.S. Seventh Army into Sicily, employing his armour in a rapid drive that captured Palermo in July and Messina in August. Just a quick side note he was known to say American soldiers were the best soldiers and strongly hated Montgomery as he was british and was more cautious than Patton. The apogee of Patton’s career came with the dramatic sweep of his Third Army across northern France in the summer of 1944 in a campaign marked by great initiative, ruthless drive, and disregard of classic military rules.

Can you really say you went to Québec City if you haven't posted a picture of Château Frontenac? Fun Fact: the Québec Conference was hosted at the Château Frontenac during the second World War. These were meetings between Mackenzie King, Franklin D. Roosevelt, and Winston Churchill to discuss strategy.

As a First Lieutenant, Ed Polanski was assigned as a liaison pilot to Headquarters Company, 2d Infantry Division upon his arrival in Korea in October 1952. He was training as a Naval aviator when World War II ended and subsequently joined the Army National Guard. For seven months in Korea, Ed spent long hours in his L-19, droning above the combat zone spotting targets for the Division's artillery and infantry. From the skies, the scorched earth below was a network of trenches and bunkers that followed the sharp contours of Korea's precipitous mountains and ridges. The Chinese positions were less obvious, often dug into the landmasses and invisible by day. The common characteristic of both sides were the craters remaining from dreadful artillery barrages day and night. On one occasion as he and his observer were scouting targets, they were repeatedly harassed by an enemy machine gun position. After getting pretty 'teed off,' they began making passes at the machine gun nest as Ed's observer Lieutenant Moran fired off rounds from his .45 at the gunner. After two passes, the gunner stopped firing and Polanski and Moran figured they had a possible kill. If he survived the volley of slugs, he was certainly scared of any men wielding pistols out of an airplane. After his service with the 2d Division, he was assigned to the Korean Military Advisory Group where Ed was the pilot for South Korean president Syngman Rhee. Though the assignment was only two months, he made some impact during his tenure and received a signed letter of appreciation from Paik Sun Yup. Polanski continued to serve in the Connecticut Army National Guard until the late 1970s. He received the Army Commendation Medal for his service during the famous Flood of '55. While piloting an H-19 helicopter, he is credited with rescuing twelve people from rooftops when the Farmington River flooded in Unionville. #army #navy #worldwarii #worldwar2 #wwii #ww2 #korea #koreanwar #pilot #airplane #nationalguard #military #war #history #militaria #militaryhistory #museum #collection #militarycollection #militarycollector #collector #secondworldwar #aircraft #plane

The weather report that changed the course of WW2: The Allied Invasion of Normandy was a huge, multi-nation, multi-discipline, planned attack intended to gain a foothold on occupied European soil. It was to be the largest amphibious invasion in history and would combine forces from many countries and many military brances. Everything was set. Except the one thing the Allied Commandrs couldn't control. The weather. High winds and rough seas could impede the amphibious assault and low clouds could block vital air support. Thousands of lives and the tide of war depended entirely on teams of Allied meteorologists who determined what constituted suitable weather conditions for the invasion within a small time window. Only a few invasion dates were possible because of the need for a full moon for illumination and for a low tide at dawn to expose the underwater German defences. June 5th, 1944, was the first date in a narrow three-day window. D-Day was originally planned for then, but June 6 and 7 were also pinpointed as possible dates because moon and tide conditions were deemed ideal for seaborne landings. Despite Ireland's neutrality during the 2nd World War, the Irish Free State had continued to send meteorological reports to Britain and the Allies under an agreed arrangement. In August, 1940, the future chief meteorologist for the Normandy landings, Scotsman, James Stagg, then representing the Bristish Met Office, had visited Irish met stations. Step forward Ted Sweeney, an Irish Coast Guard and lighthouse keeper, who ran the observation station with his wife Maureen at Blacksod in County Mayo, on the western coast of Ireland....the very edge of Europe...and whose weather forecast was crucial to the success of the invasion. Blacksod's importance was due to the fact that it was the first land-based observation station in Europe where weather readings could be professionally taken on the prevailing westerly weather systems. Seperate observations were taken at various locations by the Royal Air Force, Royal Navy, and U.S Air Force, but an accurate forecast from the Irish Meteorological Service, based on reports from Blacksod, was the most vital ⬇ctd below⬇

Unternehmen 25: An armoured column (visible are Sd.Kfz.251 and Panzer II) of the 11. Panzer-Division "Gespenster Division" (Ghost Division) passes the disabled vehicles and burning trucks of the Yugoslav 5th Army in the Serbian town of Niš, near Morava river. Four days later, after initially easy and then also heavy and exhausting battles, the division entered the Yugoslav capital. In the arrogant propaganda report about the advance of this unit, the Yugoslav Army had been referred to with great disrespect – however, in the end, a tribute was paid to the defenders of Belgrade after all: "We have to admit that they exploited the terrain remarkably and defended themselves bravely". The picture was taken in 9 April 1941 by Kriegsberichter Artur Grimm from Propaganda-Kompanie (PK) 691. ➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖ #ww2history #wwii #ww2 #worldwar2 #worldwartwo #worldwar2history #sdkfz251 #panzer #tank #wehrmacht #ghostdivision #division #fire #nazi #nazigermany #german #acis #axispowers ➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖ Follow my squad @war.and.schnapps @sstrooper1 @interested_in_ww2 @ww2_medals_and_equipment @stosstruppen1918 @krieger1940 @jon.the.collector @conflict_history @wehrmacht.history.1939
