“This mountain piled up after World War II from the rubble of the city stands as a memorial to the victims and a admonition to the living.” -plaque translation . These pics are taken atop Birkenkopf (colloquially termed “Rubble Hill”)- the tallest point in Stuttgart & affords visitors a nearly panoramic view of Stuttgart, the Swabian Alps & the Black Forest. . During WWII, over 45% of Stuttgart, and nearly the entire city center were destroyed by aerial bombing. Between 1953 and 1957, 1.5 million cubic meters rubble were cleared and moved to the hill, which resulted in an increase in height of around 40 meters. . . #stuttgart #americaningermany #history #worldwar2

Post thanks to @ww2_worldwarhistory ! . Two M26 Pershing heavy tanks rolling down a road in a battle torn town somewhere in Germany! . Intended as a replacement of the M4 Sherman, the prolonged time of development meant that only a small number saw combat in the European theater, most notably in the 9th Armored Division's dramatic dash to take the Ludendorff Bridge during the Battle of Remagen. Based on the criteria of firepower, mobility, and protection, R. P. Hunnicutt ranked the Pershing second, behind the German Panther medium tank, but ahead of the Tiger I heavy tank. In service during the Korean War, the M26 outmatched the T-34-85 in terms of firepower and protection, but was challenged by the hilly and muddy terrain, and as a result was withdrawn in 1951 in favor of its improved derivative, the M46 Patton, which had a considerably more powerful and reliable engine as well as an advanced and improved suspension to better meet the demands of the specific terrain it operated in. The lineage of the M26 continued with the M47 Patton, and was reflected in the new designs of the later M48 Patton and M60 Patton. . #heavy #tank #warthunder #worldoftanks #wot #wt #m26 #pershing #power #us #usa #millitary #war #ww2 #worldwar2 #worldatwar #photoshop #color #colorising #cs6 #editing #art #artist #ss #waffenss #nazi #wehrmacht

“GÜLMEKTEN AĞLAYABİLİRİM” Hitler, Fransa’nın teslimiyetini duyunca komik bir tepki ile kurmaylarını güldürüyor, 1940.
The VYa-23 cannon was mounted on Il-2 and Il-10 ground attack aircraft, on LaGG-3 and Yak-9 fighter aircraft, and on the experimental Mikoyan-Gurevich DIS long range fighter aircraft. In spite of the large round, the VYa-23 proved to be a disappointment in its intended anti-tank role. Light German tanks could be defeated from the side or rear only, with front armor of all tanks impervious. Medium tanks could be defeated if hit into the top of the turret or the engine compartment from under 400 m (1,300 ft) in a greater than 40-degree dive—a very difficult maneuver in Il-2 even under the most ideal conditions compounded by the difficulty of aiming at a small target. @militaryfinder Please follow my friends @_historyhunter_ @ww2gear @relics_ww2 @the_ww2_memoirs #livinghistory #militaryhistory #gunstagram #military #ww2history #militarylife #worldwarII #worldwar2 #wwII #ww2 #ww2history #secondworldwar #pistol #metaldetecting #treasurehunting #treasurehunt #wehrmacht #luftwaffe #waffenss #artifact #relics #helmet #worldwar #gunpictures #war #youtuber #thirdreich

So let me just start by saying that the Red Cross and it’s affiliate branches ARE NOT a military organization. So some of you goes came close in guessing today’s post on the Japanese Red Cross Society and like I said in the opening it is not a military organization but it was born in the fires of war. In 1877 the Satsuma Rebellion broke out on the Southern Japanese island of Kyushū. In response the Government deployed most of its troops available troops as well as a number of policemen and former samurai to put down the uprising. The rebels offered stiff resistance and as a result the government forces suffered heavy casualties. Now since the Imperial Army was less than 10 years old at this point it was still lacking in a few areas needed for a modern army to function effectively. One such area was in the medical corps. As the fighting raged on a Count Sano Tsunetami went before the government and asked if he could form the Hakuaisha (Philanthropic Society). Tsunetami has travelled to Europe in the final years of the Shogunate and had learned of the Red Cross at the Paris Exposition of 1867. Impressed with what he say he now used what he had seen to form the Hakuaisha though many within the government were originally opposed. For the remained of the war the Hakuaisha would help donate funds and medical supplies to the army as well as send some medical personnel to the frontlines. The Hakuaisha continued to exist in this form till 1987 when it was reorganized into the Japanese Red Cross Society after Japan was admitted to the International Committee of the Red Cross. The Japanese Red Cross Society would go on to play a role in the First Sino-Japanese War and the Russo-Japanese War. During both the Russo-Japanese War and the First World War the Japanese Red Cross Society helped care for prisoners of war which helped improve the world view of Japan. During the Second Sino-Japanese War/WW2 the Society tried the best they could to care for injured soldiers and civilians but they were often hindered by the military when it came to treating those on the opposing side. After the war the organization was reorganized and still exists to this day. *More info below.*

The Wehrmacht _ The Wehrmacht formed the heart of Germany's politico-military power. In the early part of World War II, Hitler's generals employed the Wehrmacht through innovative combined arms tactics (close cover air-support, mechanized armor, and infantry) to devastating effect in what became known as a Blitzkrieg The Wehrmacht's new military structure, unique combat techniques, newly developed weapons, and unprecedented speed and brutality crushed their opponents. _ Closely cooperating with the SS the German armed forces committed numerous war crimes and atrocities, despite later denials. By the time the war ended in Europe in May 1945, the Wehrmacht had lost approximately 11,300,000 men, about half of whom were missing or killed during the war. Only a few of the Wehrmacht's upper leadership were tried for war crimes, despite evidence suggesting that more were involved in illegal actions. _ #war #wwii #ww2 #worldwar2 #worldwartwo #secondworldwar #color #colorful #wwincolour #ww2incolour #colour #colourful #wwincolour #ww2incolour #warhistory #worldwar #warhistory #warincolour #warincolor #guns #tanks #planes #bullets #trucks #ships #boats #men #soldiers #german #germany #axis
Vidovo Selo, Bosnia & Herzegovina — The first woman to be proclaimed a People’s Hero of Yugoslavia, Marija Bursać was a member of the Partisan forces during World War II and spent the last few years of her young like collecting food, clothing and supplies for the war effort. She was wounded in an attack on a German base in Bosnia, and died soon after. She was just 23. #slavicmisery 🇧🇦🇷🇸 @kakvazenska

Rest In Power Freddie Oversteegen you are true hero - 6 September 1925 – 5 September 2018 Freddie Oversteegen, who has died aged 92, was recruited into the Dutch resistance aged 14. With her older sister Truus, and her friend Hannie Schaft, she carried out acts of sabotage, smuggled Jewish children out of the country and, most famously, lured German soldiers into the woods – and to their deaths. #resistance #ww2 #dutchresistance #freddieoversteegen #stopfascism #stopnazis #hero #onlygoodnaziisadeadnazi #truehero #worldwar2
