Here we present the latest addition to the Sword of the Motherland library: Combat charter infantry of the red army. Part 1 (fighter, squad, platoon, company). This 272 page book was printed in 1942 and has a large number of early war training references. Mortar support of the infantry is widely discussed in this book (50mm to 120mm). The building of fighting holes (both for troops and heavy weapons are shown.) Numerous tactical symbols are listed, as are the proceedures for how to position troops, and conduct combat operations.

Here is the camouflage configuration I chose. This camouflage is a Measure 32 of the US Navy. It was applied after the Richelieu was redesigned in 1943 in the United States. 🇫🇷 #Laroyale #richelieu #usnavy #trumpeter #ship #warship #modelmaking #hobby #battleship #navy #scalemoldelsworld #ww2 #diorama #ocean #worldwartwo #royale #akinteractive #battleshiprichelieu #weathering #model #scalemodeler #french #seascape #migammo #waves #modelpassion #marine #france #wwii #secondworldwar

This piece wasn’t done light heartedly. In fact, this tells the story of what my grandfather went through and did during the Second World War. It shows the link between him and Anne Frank. It shows that everyone went through something completely different and every story started and ended at different times. It shows that even though it is over and the world has grown from it since, it will always leave a mark on it and ourselves. This is a part of our human history, personal history and ourselves. And we can only hope that we’ve learnt enough from it to not have to go through it again.
Rest in Peace Grandpère Renée ❤️

The Memorial at Risiera di San Sabbe, near Trieste, was fashioned with what remained after the Nazis fled. They had destroyed much of this death camp on their way out to conceal evidence of their deeds. In this section, the designer created a primitive chapel in what had been the Nazi motor pool. I have never seen anything quite like this before #neighborsproject #nazi #concentrationcamp #triesta #memorial #wwii #genocide

FC3. Oh My Grillness! Chicken Mentaiko Rice Bowl ($4.50+$1 chicken + $1 mentaiko sauce + $1 egg). 7.5/10.
~
Lmao, felt baller so I added everything cause why not.
~
Mentaiko with some nice toasty taste to it, goes well with the cutlet. ~
Rice comes with some teriyaki sauce. Simple and nice.
~
Rice is slightly clumpy though.
~
Overall pretty damn decent. I think adding on mentaiko is good enough.
~
Could have bought eggs from drink store and just add it to the bowl myself. Loophole.
~
Chicken is pretty alright only, redeeming factor is mentaiko. Like the only carry in this bowl.

Today we visited the Pearl Harbor Memorial site. So very sad, inspiring, moving. This picture is the USS Arizona that was sunk immediately by the attacking Japanese military on Dec 7, 1942 killing 1102 of the 1177 crew aboard. This attack on Pearl Harbour started WWII - a war which killed 59 million people. If you can go- don’t miss this place. #wwii #ussarizona #heros #allthefeels

Such different monuments
.

Uniforms
London, UK .
.
The Monument to the Women of World War II is a British national war memorial situated on Whitehall in London. It was unveiled on 9 July 2005 by Queen Elizabeth II as part of the 60th anniversary of the end of the Second World War. .
.
The lettering on the sides replicates the typeface used on war time ration books. There are 17 individual sets of clothing and uniforms around the sides, symbolising the hundreds of different jobs women undertook in World War II and then gave back for the homecoming men at the end of the war. Among them are uniforms of the Army and WRENs, RAF, Red Cross nurses, Land Girls, Munitions Factory workers, Air Wardens and so on..
.
.
Униформа
Лондон, Великобритания.
.

В самом центре Лондона, на Уайтхолл, стоит очень интересный памятник. Он посвящен женщинам, принимавшим участие во Второй мировой войне на фронте и в тылу. Монумент был открыт Елизаветой II в 2005 г.
.
.
Необычность монумента в том, что на нем нет человеческих фигур. По периметру гранитной глыбы «развешены» 17 комплектов бронзовой униформы. Это армейская униформа и профессиональная форма, которые были вынуждены надеть английский женщины, когда их отцы, мужья и братья ушли на фронт.
.
В частности, на памятнике представлена униформа различных родов войск британской армии, форма пожарных, медсестер, рабочие спецовки.
.
Памятник был воздвигнуть к 60-летию со дня окончания войны, чтобы еще раз напомнить о той роли, которую женщины внесли в дело победы.

What you see here is a 40 mm Bofors AA gun at a firing position on the Karhumäki Hill, Tainionkoski municipality.
.
What makes this pic somewhat special is that only nine of those were issued to the troops in the spring of 1939 - and some 20 of them in October. As the pic is dated on Dec 14 it’s possible that this is one of the around 29, which was the total amount of guns in November. All of those were manufactured by Bofors, Sweden.
.
In December the 3rd batch, 24 guns with 100000 shells, arrived from Sweden, as well as the first 24-gun batch of the 42 ordered from MAVAG, Hungary.

Untergang der Force Z ⚓️🇬🇧 Teil l
Ende Oktober 1941 lief das Schlachtschiff HMS Prince of Wales nach Singapur, um angesichts eines erwarteten Angriffs der Kaiserlich Japanischen Marine die britische Force Z im Fernen Osten zu verstärken. Am 10.

Just finished reading a book that my cousin lent me (thanks, Jenn!), "The Lost Girls of Paris " by Pam Jenoff. This book was so good! I haven't read a lot of historical fiction but I have watched a ton of historical dramas, documentaries, and read several historical biographies about people who served during that time. I love learning more about the WWII era. This book follows women serving the British government's SOE program during the war and the perils they faced. As the cover states, this was inspired by true stories of the women who served. Highly recommend and boy, I wish BBC/NETFLIX would adapt this!lol. #bookwormlife #reading #books #shamelessbookworm #currentread #recentreads #thelostgirlsofparis #pamjenoff #historicalfiction #WWII #warriorwomen

HMCS Sioux was originally ordered as HMS Vixen before being purchased by Canada. She bombarded beaches on DDay. Carrier escort in Operations Tungsten and Athletic. In the Korean War she was part of a Canadian battlegroup enforcing naval blockades up and down the North Korean coast.

I have a bit of personal connection as the church I attend has a gentleman that served aboard the ship as an electrician. He joined in 1954 and served 4.5 years in the RCN. He showed me many pictures of his travels all over the Pacific, his shipmates and, the various ships they escorted or docked next to. He greatly enjoyed his time and would have stayed longer making a CO rank but his wife became seriously ill while he was away and decided to leave and purse a career closer to home so he could take care to her.

Mid and Late war emergency program destroyers built by Great Britain have outstanding Anti-Air and ASW stats. Gunnery is okay and torpedoes are the same on many of them.

I've tried getting some kind of official card for the ship but it's just coming up SA's for it is the hard part. They aren't meaningful and HMCS Algonquin along with many other destroyers will always be the preferred choice.

In my solitude
You haunt me
With dreadful ease
Of days gone by
In my solitude
You taunt me
With memories
That never die
I sit in my chair
And filled with despair
There's no one could be so sad
With gloom everywhere
I sit and I stare
I know that I'll soon go mad
In my solitude
I'm afraid
Dear Lord above
Send back my love
I sit in my chair
Filled with despair
There's no one
Could be so sad
With gloom everywhere
I sit and I stare
I know that I'll soon go mad
In my solitude
I'm afraid
Dear Lord above
Send me back my love

By far the most famous memorial in Pearl Harbor, the USS Arizona Memorial sits out in the middle of the Harbor. The highly recognized white archway above the water marks the final resting place of the Arizona Battleship. Aerial views show the sunken ship just beneath the water in the harbor, with the memorial directly overboard. The fate of the USS Arizona was by far the most tragic event of the attack, which is largely why it is the most popular memorial to visit in the park. Japanese planes bombed the ship which eventually resulted in a massive explosion of the ship, sinking it almost immediately. The loss of life was horrific, with 1,102 of the 1,177 (93%) sailors dying from the explosion and sinking of the ship. Today, the USS Arizona Memorial serves as a permanent symbol of remembrance for those who fought and lost their lives that day. Tourists take a ferry boat out into the harbor and have the chance to walk among the memorial and experience the wreckage for themselves.

Swedish volunteers Börje Perrault and Ulf Bergvist in action at the Hanko front, August 1941.

The Swedish volunteer battalion arrived in Finland and to the Hanko front at the end of July/beginning of August 1941. All in all the battalion would number some 800 members. In short the battalion included a HQ company commanded by Captain Gunnar Gyllenhaal. Three Jaeger companies were lead by Malcolm Murray, Anders Grafström (famous for his achievments during the Winter War) and Jon Liljedahl. Captain Harald Bråkenhielm commanded the heavy company which included 5 MG squads, 3 Mortar squads and one anti-tank platoon. A supply section was also attached to the battalion.

As mentioned earlier, they initially wore Swedish fatigues and overseas caps with Finnish cockades. The rest of the equipment was either of Finnish (like the helmets seen here), Swedish or (reissued) captured Soviet stock. As time went by the Swedish uniform were replace with Finnish stock, for logistical reasons.

As time went by the Swedish uniform were replace with Finnish stock, for logistical reasons.

Today 80 years ago the 30th of November 1939 Finland found itself in war with the Soviet Union. The war lasted until March 13, 1940
(3 months, 1 week and 6 days). In memory of the countless fallen on both sides in this bloody and brutal conflict, soldiers, volunteers, civilians etc.

My motorcade is almost done! It's been a slow process of adding to my newest vehicles. Working on stowage, a few more soldiers and a destroyed Allied vehicle. .

The story of B-17 “All American”

A mid-air collision on February 1, 1943, between a B-17 and a German fighter over the Tunis dock area, became the subject of one of the most famous photographs of WWII. An enemy fighter attacking a 97th Bomb Group formation went out of control, probably with a wounded pilot then continued its crashing descent into the rear of the fuselage of a Flying Fortress named “All American”, piloted by Lt. Kendrick R. Bragg, of the 414th Bomb Squadron. When it struck, the fighter broke apart, but left some pieces in the B-17. The left horizontal stabilizer of the Fortress and left elevator were completely torn away. The two right engines were out and one on the left had a serious oil pump leak. The vertical fin and the rudder had been damaged, the fuselage had been cut almost completely through, connected only at two small parts of the frame and the radios, electrical and oxygen systems were damaged. There was also a hole in the top that was over 16 feet long and 4feet wide at its widest and the split in the fuselage went all the way to the top gunner’s turret.

Although the tail actually bounced and swayed in the wind and twisted when the plane turned and all the control cables were severed, except one single elevator cable still worked, and the aircraft still miraculously flew! The tail gunner was trapped because there was no floor connecting the tail to the rest of the plane. The waist and tail gunners used parts of the German fighter and their own parachute harnesses in an attempt to keep the tail from ripping off and the two sides of the fuselage from splitting apart. While the crew was trying to keep the bomber from coming apart, the pilot continued on his bomb run and released his bombs over the target.

When the bomb bay doors were opened, the wind turbulence was so great that it blew one of the waist gunners into the broken tail section. It took several minutes and four crew members to pass him ropes from parachutes and haul him back into the forward part of the plane. When they tried to do the same for the tail gunner, the tail began flapping so hard that it began to break off. #squawkdirtytome #atc #b17 #wwii #flying #aviation

Another incredible shot by @andiamo.anna with the awesome @samuelinhopapi! It was incredible doing a photoshoot paying homage to the men and women who earned our likes previously unseen respect during WWII.

The Tuskegee Airmen and the WASP decided to fly and fight when mostly everyone else around was CERTAIN they would only be a hindrance to the operation, and they most certainly couldn't provide any help. They not only helped, but went above and beyond for their country and the men and women they were representing. The Tuskegee Airmen were pivotal in paving the way for desegregation in the United States Military and saw incredible combat success in North Africa and Europe. The WASP never saw combat but did everything else - including ferrying aircraft across the ocean to the boys overseas and towing banners as a target for aerial combat training.

These are talented pilots who set the stage and created a foundation of success for the next generations of people who wanted to become pilots but maybe never thought it was something they could do. We need to continue to honor them as time goes on, if we don't they will all be forgotten - many of them have been left out of the history books and documentaries and they deserve better than that.

On 11 December 1941 Ilse Klaber was deported from Dusseldorf to Riga, with her 5-year old son Werner Erich and her 56-year old mother Grete. All three were eventually murdered in the Riga Ghetto.⁠
Ilse Klaber (nee Kaufmann) was born in Kornelimuenster, Germany on 29 June 1911 to Jacob and Grete Kaufmann (nee Kahn). She was a housewife and married to Fritz. Prior to WWII the couple lived in Breyell, Germany. ⁠
Trying to get his family out of Germany after the outbreak of the war, Fritz Klaber traveled to Amsterdam in September 1939 in hopes of getting a visa to South America. In 1940 he was caught and deported to Westerbork. In November 1943 Fritz managed to escape from Westerbork, returned to Amsterdam and joined the underground. Fritz Klaber survived the Holocaust.⁠

My Grandmother decorating the family Christmas tree with handmade aluminum foil ornaments.
.
Another old photo of my Grandmother Elizabeth that my uncle wanted me to have in my collection.
.
Aluminum foil ornaments date back to the Victorian era and continued through the 1950's. For most families, there really wasn't much else available between WWI and WWII. Christmas ornaments were scarce during wartime and extremely expensive, so most decorations were homemade. This is especially true for people living in rural areas.
.
For those that had pretty glass ornaments, they likely would have been saved from the early 1900's and treated as family heirlooms. Wrapped carefully in a layer of cloth and tissue, and stored in a china cabinet.
.
Today, aluminum foil ornaments are called "vintage" and are "DIY projects" for kids, but in my Grandmother's day it was called "making do".

Second generation of Panzerjäger.
Panzerjäger (German "armour-hunters" or "tank-hunters", abbreviated to Pz.Jg. in German) was a branch of service of the German Wehrmacht during the Second World War. It was an anti-tank arm-of-service that operated anti-tank artillery, and made exclusive use of the tank destroyers, which were also named Panzerjäger. Personnel wore ordinary field-gray uniforms rather than the black of the Panzer troops; however, those Panzerjäger troops who crewed the tank-destroyers wore the Panzer jacket in field gray.

Technical-Sergeant Donald V Birdsall, a top turret gunner of the 448th Bomb Group in position inside his B-24 Liberator (serial number 42-7746) nicknamed “Bag O’ Bolts”. Riddled by four hundred bullet holes, its waist section gutted by fire and one of its remaining two engines still aflame, the Liberator, "Bag O' Bolts" presented an amazing sight as it returned to base after taking part in Monday's raid on Germany. Attacked near the target, the bomber was thrown out of position when flak set no 4 engine on fire, cut the power of no 1 engine, put all the turrets out of commission, and started a raging fire amidships. The pilot nevertheless made a second bombing run and, while the crew fought the fire, dropped his load on the target. He then dived the ship to "deck" and flew all the way home within 20 to 25 feet of the ground although chased by four Germany fighters who gave up once they ran out of ammunition. Two of the crew were wounded and a third, believing the dive to "deck" meant to crash, bailed out. Associated Press Photo Shows: T/Sgt Donald V Birdsall, of Wells Bridge, NY, seen in his top turret position which was shattered by a direct hit while he was operating his guns. He was untouched by the explosion on fragments.'
