👨‍👦 PORQUE OS NOSSOS PAIS SÃO SEMPRE A NOSSA REFERÊNCIA... 👨‍👦 Como sabem, sou uma fã confessa de literatura sobre a Segunda Guerra Mundial. Seja sob a forma de romance ou sobre a forma de relatos históricos, este tema exerce sobre mim um fascínio que faz com que todos os livros com que me cruze tenham quase que obrigatoriamente vir para casa. Há uns tempos cruzei-me com este "Os filhos dos Nazis" editado pela @guerraepaz que me despertou bastante o interesse... Afinal quem são os descendentes dos grandes nomes do nazismo como Himmler, Göring, Mengele ou Hess? Quem são estes pequenos príncipes e princesas do regime do III Reich? Como cresceram e de que forma encararam o legado de um nome com que não pediram para nascer? Ainda não terminei a leitura deste livro mas está a ser uma leitura verdadeiramente fascinante e que me está a fazer reflectir sobre a marca que os nossos pais deixam sobre nós, que pode ser mais ou menos indelével e levar-nos as decisões mais ou menos definitivas sobre o nosso futuro. Em breve, partilho a book review. Acho que vão gostar tanto como eu! 💫 Alguma vez pensaram em como será o outro lado do Nazismo e dos sobreviventes deste regime de manchou, da forma mais negra, a história europeia e mundial? 💫 #leiturasdescomplicadas #guerraepaz #segundaguerramundial #wwii #adoroler #historia #historiamundial #nazismo #leitorescompulsivos #leiturasdedezembro #decembereadings #currentlyreading #leitoresdeportugal #bookaddict #bookstagram #bookworms #bookcover #portuguesebookstagrammer #bookrecommendations #bookcommunity #worldwarii

L'agrafe de combat rapproché est porté au-dessus de la poche supérieure gauche de l'uniforme. Le fermoir, de dimension 96 x 21 mm est réalisé en zinc, avec une pièce maîtresse légèrement incurvée composée de l'emblème national surmontant un croisé de baïonnette et de grenade à manche. wwii #worldwarii #worldwar2 #ww2#militaryhistory#worldwartwo #worldwar #war #military #history #historical #historic #building #onthisday #thisday #militaria #eaglesnest #historybuff #historynerd #historygeek #historylover #ww2 #wehrmacht #abzeichen #medal #award #krieg #deutschland #war #wwii #weltkrieg #1939

My eighth post for #axisweek, in which I only post post axis and/or axis-related aviation information from now until Saturday! I've read several articles lately arguing over whether the Bf109 or FW190 was the better airplane. This is a fun exercise to have and I typically take the most practical road and primarily consider which airplane provided the most versatility during the war. That being the case, my answer is the FW190, as it was a daytime fighter, a nighttime fighter, a bomber escort, a bomber interceptor, an attack airplane and surely some others that I've left off. Your thoughts? #fw190 #fockewulf #luftwaffe #wehrmacht #germanengineering #warbird #ww2 #worldwarii #keepemflying #usaaf #aviation #worldwarii #history #militaryhistory #fighterplane #airmuseum #taildragger #museum #history #historylesson #militaryaviation #planesoffame #warbird #aviationphotography #airshow #airshow2019

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. Dezember 1941 wurde die Prince of Wales zusammen mit der Repulse, von Singapur kommend, von japanischen Marineluftstreitkräften vor der Ostküste der malaiischen Halbinsel in der Nähe von Pulau Tioman angegriffen und durch mehrere Bomben- und vor allem Torpedotreffer versenkt. #worldwarii #royalnavy #fleet #history #aviation #greatbritain #uk #military #unitedkingdom #🇬🇧 #warhistory #battleship #britishhistory #britain #worldwar2 #worldwar2history #britishempire #singapore #malaysia #wwii #unitedkingdom #unitedkingdom🇬🇧 #secondworldwar #worldwartwo #ww2 #royalnavyhistory #hmsprinceofwales #southchinasea #hmsrepulse #imperialjapan #airplane

The Mitsubishi A6M "Zero" was a long range fighter produced by Mitsubishi and operated by the IJN from 1940 to 1945.🔶 — It was known as the "most capable carrier based fighter aircraft in the world" when it was introduced early in WW2 because of its truly amazing maneuverability and very long range.🔶 — Until mid-1942, the Zero had a dogfighting ratio of 12-1, until new allied tactics and technology enabled allied fighters to engage the zeroes on pretty equal terms.🔶 — By 1943, new American fighters were faster, better armed, and more armored than the zeroes, but still not as maneuverable. With production delays of newer Japanese fighters, the zero fought until the end of the war, and even was adapted to carry out kamikaze missions in the Pacific.🔶 — Overall, the Zero was an amazing fighter that had its magnificent high point in its career until being superseded by newer fighters. — #ww2 #wwii #worldwar2 #worldwarii #history2 #history #vintage #retro #historygram #historyinpictures #historygeek #historygeeks #historynerd #historynerds #historylover #historylovers #historymemes #historyfacts #historychannel #wwiihistory #secondworldwar #ww2vet #ww2history #warhistory #historybuff #historybuffs #militaryhistory #historylesson #historyiscool

Captured Soviet soldiers, Soviet Red Army prisoners of war over the landscape.. Seemingly indifferent about their situation, as if glad to be taken out of the fighting. There are no guards in sight. Their uniforms suggest summer weather, perhaps mid-, late 1941, when large numbers have surrendered to the attacking Germans. . . . . . . . . . . #ww2daily #ww2dailyhistory #ww2dailyphotography #ww2 #ww2german #ww2history #ww2guns #soldier #war #tank #ww2tanks #ww2germany #ww2pictures #ww2incolor #wwiihistory #wwii #mg34 #mp40 #secondworldwar #worldwar #worldwar2 #worldwartwo #worldwarii #allies #wehrmacht #soviet #sovietunion #military #militaryhistory

🇬🇧 During World War II, the "fifth column" was called the pro-Nazi organizations of the German minority in various countries, as well as native collaborators. Members of these organizations before and during Germany's invasion of the countries in which they lived, conducted hostile activities, and even armed diversion. The fifth column in Poland was based on German Nazi organizations. These organizations directly or indirectly maintained secret contacts with the party and state Berlin headquarters: NSDAP, Auslandsorganisation, Gestapo, SD, Abwehr and others, conducting, according to their instructions, hostile subversive activities (espionage, sabotage, provocation, political and destructive). In March 1939, in view of the growing threat from the German Third Reich, a partial mobilization was announced in Poland to strengthen the western border. The police were ready. The focus of official tasks has shifted to combating hostile intelligence and subversive activity, especially in areas inhabited by the German and Ukrainian minorities. There, the subversive became more and more noticeable. On Sunday, September 3 in Bydgoszcz, the German "V Column" openly launched a gun, firing at retreating troops of the Polish Army. Rapid counteraction of soldiers and policemen allowed for the rapid breakup of sabotage groups and bringing order and security to the city. During the war, groups of fighters and paramilitary formations emerged from them (e.g. Selbstschutz, formed in the Reich from refugees Freikorps Ebbinghaus) continued their subversive operations at the back of the Polish front (including the subversive in Bydgoszcz, in Poznań, in Silesia). Gustav Berger headed the Selbstschutz ("self-defense"). The German fifth column is also heavily burdened by mass murders of the Polish population in the first months of occupation (e.g. in Pomerania - over 23,000, in Poznań - 10,000, in Silesia - 2,000, and in Ciechanów - 3,000 victims). ➡️ @history_pl_color

Untergang der Force Z ⚓️🇬🇧 Der 7. Dezember 1941 wird immer in Verbindung mit dem japanischen Überfall auf Pearl Harbor gebracht. Doch an diesem Tag begann die gewaltsame japanische Expansion nach Südostasien und sämtlicher Pazifikinseln. Großbritannien sollte darauf reagieren und schickten im voraus ihr modernstes Schlachtschiff die Prince of Wales nach Singapur um die Force Z zu verstärken. Die Japaner sollten aber vorbereitet sein und warteten auf das Eingreifen der britischen Kriegsschiffe. Der Untergang der HMS Prince of Wales und der HMS Repulse durch japanische Flugzeuge im Dezember 1941 und der anschließende Verlust Singapurs waren ein schwerer Schlag für die britische Moral. Die britischen Berichte der Wochen unmittelbar vor Ausbruch des Krieges mit Japan im Dezember 1941 sind von der Geschichte der Force Z geprägt, die aus dem neuen Schlachtschiff HMS Prince of Wales und dem Schlachtkreuzer HMS Repulse besteht. Es ist die Geschichte einer vergeblichen Geste der späten und unzureichenden Abschreckung, die unaufhaltsam zu einer Katastrophe führt. Der Verlust der Streitkräfte durch den japanischen Luftangriff am 10. Dezember, nur zwei Tage nach dem Konflikt, war traumatisch. Die größte Niederlage der Royal Navy im Zweiten Weltkrieg. #worldwarii #royalnavy #fleet #history #aviation #greatbritain #uk #military #unitedkingdom #🇬🇧 #warhistory #battleship #britishhistory #britain #worldwar2 #worldwar2history #britishempire #singapore #malaysia #wwii #unitedkingdom #unitedkingdom🇬🇧 #secondworldwar #worldwartwo #ww2 #royalnavyhistory #hmsprinceofwales #southchinasea #hmsrepulse #imperialjapan #airplane

Some more photos from our visit to the Route 66 Museum in Barstow CA, Dec. 7, 19. They had a bunch of WWII memorabilia, an old pin ball machine (the sign didn't say from what year), and a bunch of other really cool stuff including an old juke box that one of the employees put a quarter in for us. I thought it was so cool that it actually still played songs, I honestly didn't think it would work. I don't know why, but I always enjoy museums, and Barstow is full of them.

Ma toute première colorisation j'espère qu'elle vous plaira. Vous retrouverez la photo original en noir et blanc dans mon post du 11 novembre. Il s'agit d'une plaque au gélatino bromure d'argent et par conséquent très lumineuse une fois inversée, de plus la photo a été prise sûrement dans un château ou autre transformé en hôpital de campagne en pleine journée ensoleillée, ce qui rajoute une grosse luminosité. Sur la photo, on voit un mutilé du 227 ème régiment d'infanterie. Son regard à lui seul a l'air de dire "pourquoi la guerre ?". Pour plus d'informations je vous laisse jeter un coup d'oeil à mon autre post.

Kearny, New Jersey, sees the launching of a Mahan class US Navy destroyer on January 11th, 1936, christened Reid. She weighs in at 2,103 tons, has a length of 341 ft, and can make 36.5 knots; armed with five 5 inch guns and twelve 21 inch torpedo tubes (only 8 torpedoes capable of being fired at any given time). Reid’s commissioning later that year saw quite a few training cruises and exercises with the Pacific Fleet. This is to culminate in Reid being at Pearl Harbor on December 7th, 1941. She and her crew are relaxed laid up for the time being when the Japanese bombers came in. Quickly Reid sounded general quarters and gave supporting AA fire, managing to even down a plane, at the cost of just ammunition as Reid is undamaged and crew unharmed. With war now thrust upon the destroyer, she begins to make patrols of the surrounding area of Pearl Harbor, then in May of 1942 her crew set out at last for action. Japan invaded the Aleutian Islands Kiska and Kinu, prompting Reid and her fleet mates to bombard positions on Kiska. While there, on August 31st, a Catalina flying boat locates a surfaced submarine suspected to be Japanese and drops depth charges. This information is passed on to Reid where she investigates. This is in fact the old submarine RO-61 and she is badly damaged from the Catalina. Reid, upon reaching the area and seeing an oil slick, picks up a contact on sonar and begins to depth charge. RO-61 suffers fires in the shell room and flooding, she must come to the surface, but not quietly. While some crew abandon ship, others try to man the 3 inch deck gun and fire on Reid with small arms, forcing the destroyer to fight back with 20mm guns which cuts down the resistance. A few 5 inch shells send RO-61 to the bottom stern first with 60 lives, Reid picks up 5 survivors. After this skirmish, Reid will go on patrol duties near Samoa and Fiji among other places before taking part in troopship escort missions from Guadalcanal. This takes her into 1943, also supporting positions held on New Guinea following her patrols off Guadalcanal in September. ((Continues below👇👇👇))

The USA does the same and declares war on Germany and Italy - - - #wwii #worldwar #history #war #military #secondworldwar #worldwartwo #soldier #follow #army #wehrmacht #militaryhistory #usa #tank #ww2history #todayinhistory #worldwarii #ww2 #worldwar2 #gun #history#meme #US #war #battle #dailyposts #europe #photooftheday #ussr #historiansunion

Holy smokes! Ideally, SBD drivers aimed for a stable ~90-degree dive angle to minimize bomb drift and toss errors ~ and yeah, they were shooting at your relatively stable, slowly enlarging shape ... *gulp* . In reality, during a typical combat profile the bombs came off at about 70 degrees and 240 knots with the dive brakes open. This model is set at 70 degrees nose down 👉🏼#BigBrassOnes. If the sun cooperates today I’ll take this outside for some lighting studies. . And the new @midwaymovie, if I recall correctly, has it right - the radioman/gunners faced forward during the dive to call out altitudes. Not enough props can be given to the victors at Midway, and in particular VB-6’s Dick Best, who held on to his 1,000-pounders a couple of seconds longer than called for to guarantee direct hits on the IJN Fleet carriers Akagi and then the Hiryu in the second June 4th strike. /Salute

THE FORGOTTEN BATTLE. Operation Infatuate, Walcheren, Holland, 1 November 1944. Column of 'Alligator' amphibius vehicles passing 'Terrapin' amphibious vehicles on the Scheldt River. 13 Oct. 1944 / Likely Terneuzen, Netherlands. "To hamper German defence, the dykes of the island Walcheren were breached by attacks from RAF Bomber Command: on October 3 at Westkapelle with severe loss of civilian life; on October 7 at two places, west and east of Vlissingen; and on October 11 at Veere. This flooded the central part of the island, forcing the German defenders onto the high ground around the outside and in the towns, but it also allowed the use of amphibious vehicles Buffalo's ply their way between the beach and a Landing Craft Tank (LCT 952) during the landing by Royal Marine Commandos on the island of Walcheren at Westkapelle, the most western point of the island, during the final phase of the battle to free the Belgian port of Antwerp. Dark smoke is hanging high in the air whilst what appears to be the remnants of a smoke screen is lingering on the beach. Colour: @colourisedpieceofjake . Check this man out awesome guy.

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. . .#72scale #1_72scale #1_72 #worldwar2 #worldwarii #ww2 #wwii #braillescale #diorama #model #tiny_tanks #scalemodel #scalemodels #panzer #scalemodeltank #modelismo #modelista #plasticscalemodel #scaleplasticmodel #miniatures #sdkfz #wip #panzerwaffe #panzercrew #eurekaminiature #eurekaminiature #afrikakorps #desertfox #rommel #roden #sdkfz263
