A very lucky British soldier returning from the front, Beaumont-Hamel 1916. The British like most waring nations soon realized they need some form ofhead protection for the men in the trenches. For this reason John Brodie, an engineer, submitted to British high command his helmet design. Brodie himself admitted that he had taken inspiration from the medieval 'KettleHat'. The helmet was appealing as not only was it stronger than its French counterpart the M15 'Adrian' helmet, it could also be made using existing tools and out of only 1 sheet of steel. After a type A model proved to have many faults, a more suitable type B was put into production and these would be sent out for testing. After a few modifications around 140,000 helmets would be sent out and used in April 1916, however due to the short supply they would be kept on the front lines. By July 1916, in time for the start Battle of the Somme, over 1 million Brodie's had been issued. Minor modifications would be made during the course of the war such as a cork and sawdust spread being painted on the helmet to remove it's shiny surface. The helmet be standard issue for the rest of the war.

Finalmente pessoal, chegou a hora. Vamos falar de um grande líder brasileiro, que teve participação na segunda guerra. E ajudou a vencer o eixo na europa e deixou um grande legado no Brasil. Vamos falar sobre Getúlio Dornelles Vargas e sua participação na guerra. ______ Getúlio nasceu em São Borja em 19/04/1883. E em 1909 ingressou na política como deputado estadual pelo Partido Republicano Rio-Grandense (PRR). Foi eleito presidente em 1930, após ter feito uma revolução. E assim assumiu a presidência. Getúlio Vargas optou por uma política nacionalista de estado forte, em 1937 fecha o congresso e anula os partidos políticos, logo em seguida outorga uma nova constituição declarando-se presidente, e assim é inaugurado o Estado Novo, governando com características ditatoriais. A inclusão do Brasil na segunda guerra acontece em janeiro de 1942 quando a Alemanha enviou submarinos para a costa brasileira, atacando e afundando cinco navios mercantes brasileiros em agosto de 1942. (Essa é a versão oficial da história, mas existem outros estudos sobre a declaração de guerra entre Brasil e Alemanha, que posso trazer em um outro post sobre isso). Depois de declarar guerra, em 1943 criou a Força Expedicionária Brasileira (FEB). E enviou cerca de 25.000 soldados também chamados de "pracinhas". O exército brasileiro foi comandado pelo general Mascarenhas de Morais e foi integrado com o 5° exército americano para atuar em uma campanha de guerra no norte da Itália. A atuação do Brasil foi importante para tomar Camaiore, Monte Castelo, Castelnuovo, Montese e Fornovo, dominada por alemães. Forneceu uma boa assistência aos aliados para tirar a Europa das mãos dos nazistas. Cerca 450 brasileiros morreram na guerra. ______ Esse foi um breve resumo sobre a participação do Brasil, mas no futuro irei oprofundar sobre eventos ocorridos na mesma época. Espero que tenham aprendido e aguardem mais no futuro. Vejam fotos as 3 primeiras fotos de Getúlio Vargas com o presidente Roosevelt e última é ele no Brasil sendo homenageado. ______ #ww2 #normandia #era #world #roosevelt #empire #vargas #Brasil #ww #worldwar #wwii #worldwarii #Itlia #war #tb #dday #diad #segundaguerra #eravargas #bb

⠀ ⠀ O Segredo da Livraria de Paris ┊ Lily Graham ┊ @editoragutenberg ┊ 208 págs. ┊ #ResenhasCeuLiterario ┊ 5 🌟`s + ❤️ ⠀ Mandada para viver com uma tia na Inglaterra, Valerie saiu de Paris aos três anos de idade, durante a Segunda Guerra Mundial. Atualmente com vinte anos, ela descobre que seu avô ainda é vivo. Enfrentando o medo da rejeição e disposta a saber porque foi enviada para longe, bem como quem são seus pais biológicos, ela se candidata à vaga de emprego na livraria dele, com outro nome, para tentar entender mais seu passado antes de confrontá-lo. O que descobrirá mudará o rumo de sua vida para sempre. ⠀ Centrado em narrar a vida de Mireille, mãe de Valerie, durante a ocupação nazista na França, este livro não tem as cenas cruas de maus tratos aos judeus, então quem deseja uma obra menos dura sobre o assunto, encontrou a história certa! Acompanhar a relação que Valerie desenvolve com o avô, sem este saber que se trata de sua neta, é incrível! Vincent ficou endurecido pelo que sofreu, mas aos poucos se afeiçoa pela jovem descontraída que tem gostos literários tão diferentes dos seus, enquanto Valerie vai, secretamente, puxando o emocionante fio de sua história. ⠀ Narrativa que nos embala, personagens cativantes, laços familiares profundos, um romance inesperado e um segredo doloroso são alguns pontos que esse livro traz ao leitor. Conseguiu me envolver desde o início, não se perdeu em parte alguma da narrativa e conclui com um final que nos faz bem, nos alegra, mesmo sob o viés triste que todo livro de guerra tem. Foi a primeira obra que li com a ótica de ocupações efetuadas pelos nazistas e me conquistou plenamente. ⠀ Bons livros sobre a guerra são assim: assunto conhecido, mas trazendo sempre um novo olhar. Quando pensamos em nazismo logo já vem o holocausto em nossa mente, mas quantos outros povos foram impactados por seus domínios? Quantas vidas, inclusive vidas alemãs, foram modificadas pelo Partido Nacional-Socialista? Um livro incrivelmente tocante, belo, triste e alegre, que encheu meus olhos de lágrimas em vários momentos. Recomendo muito para todos, sei que irão amar essa obra, independentemente de seu gênero de preferência para leitura. ⠀

II. Dünya Savaşı'nın sonuna doğru, Nazi bilim adamları ve mühendisleri bir dizi yıkıcı ve yenilikçi cihaz üzerinde çalışıyorlardı. Almanlar savaşı kaybediyorlardı ve müttefikleri geri götürecek ve onlara zafer kazandıracak silahlar bulmak için umutsuzdular. Almanya’nın en iyi bilim adamları ve mühendisleri çılgınca yeni projeler üzerinde çalışıyorlardı. Bunlardan bazıları o zamanlar oldukça fütüristikti, . . Towards the end of World War II, Nazi scientists and engineers were working on a number of destructive and innovative devices. The Germans were losing the war and desperate to come up with weapons that would drive the allies back and give them victory. Germany’s best scientists and engineers were frantically working on new projects. Some of these were quite futuristic for the time, . . #tarih #history #ww2 #wwii #savaş #secondworldwar #gun #soldier #askeri #military #tarihi #tarihnotlari #nazigermany

Seriál o českých a slovenských hrdinech pokračuje 🇨🇿🙏 Někteří Češi a Slováci se za druhé světové války nechtěli smířit s tím, že Hitler ovládl Československo bez boje. Kromě domácích odbojářů jsou nejznámější ti, kdo zemi opustili a přidali se k RAF - britskému královskému letectvu. V letadlech riskovali mnohokrát život, aby pomohli porazit nacisty a hráli důležitou roli v bitvě o Británii. Britské letectvo si jich velmi vážilo (podobně v něm bojovali třeba Poláci). Někteří letci se v Anglii oženili. Když se po válce vrátili domů, přivítali je lidé zaslouženě jako hrdiny. . Už o 3 roky později ale u nás začala diktatura komunistů. Ti letce z Británie vyhodili z práce, zavřeli je do vězení a táborů, šikanovali jejich rodiny a o 40 let o nich nemluvili. Proč? Stačilo, že to byli odvážní, svobodomyslní lidé s kontakty na západě, u kterých se žádné sympatie k další totalitě nedaly očekávat. Na barevné fotografii je armádní generál Emil Boček, který ke statečným západním letcům patřil. Žije v Brně, je mu 97 let. . Smířit se / reconcile / cмириться . Ovládnout / get hold of / захватить .

The Blücher and the Battle of Drøbak sound The Blücher was a German Admiral Hipper class heavy cruiser. She was armed with 8 x 203mm main guns and 6 x 533mm torpedo tubes whilst also carrying significant secondary and AA armaments, making her one of the most powerful cruisers of the time. This weaponry and armour meant that she displaced over 16,000 tons which greatly exceeded the 10,000 ton limit imposed by the Anglo-German Naval Treaty. The Blücher was the second ship in her class and was laid down in August 1936. She was commissioned in September 1936 but didn't enter active service in the fleet until 5 April 1940. Immediately after being declared ready for action, Blücher was assigned flagship of Group 5 of the invasion force for Operation Weserübung, the German invasion of Denmark and Norway. 3 days later she set sail for Norway accompanied by the heavy cruiser Lützow, the light cruiser Emden and several smaller escorts whilst also carrying 800 troops from the 163rd Infantry Division. Their task was to sail up a fjord to Oslo and seize the city. En route the flotilla was spotted by a British submarine but managed to evade the torpedoes. As they passed through the Drøbak Narrows, a Norwegian patrol boat Pol III detected their presence in the darkness. The patrol boat was quickly sunk by a German torpedo boat but not before the Pol III had reported back unidentified ships in the vicinity. Several shots were fired at the flotilla by Norwegian Coastal batteries but none hit due to the darkness and the German ships soon moved out of range of the Norwegian guns. As the flotilla steamed on, Norwegian Commander Birger Eriksen had received the order to extinguish all lights and to go to full alert. He commanded Oscarborg Fortress, an ageing coastal installation that used to guard the sea entrance to Oslo but had since been relegated to a training facility, leading the Germans to disregard its defensive value. In addition, the majority of the soldiers manning the fortress were untrained conscripts who had only been there a week. CONTINUED IN THE COMMENTS

#Onthisday in 1945, more than 60,000 soldiers and Marines of the 10th Army began their amphibious invasion of Okinawa. This battle lasted from April 1, 1945 to June 22, 1945. "It was the largest land and sea battle in the world and it was a harbinger of the terrible carnage that awaited millions of people if the Americans were to invade. So awful was the Battle of Okinawa, policy makers began considering an alternative to a mass invasion in order to save these millions of lives in peril."

Today is the 75th anniversary of the invasion of Okinawa. In honor of the invasion I’d like share the uniform of Leonard A. Chapelle. Leonard Chappelle was born in New Haven Connecticut on May 10th 1924. He enlisted into the Navy as a Corpsman on July 31st 1942 and would complete all his medical schooling by January 1944. On January 28th, 1944 he would report into the Fleet Marine Force. Chapelle got his first taste of combat while participating in the assault and capture of Guam. It was a tough and bloody fight that lasted almost a month. In September of 1944, Chapelle would be transferred to 3rd Battalion, 22nd Marines, 6th Marine division. On this day 75 years ago (April 1st 1945) he would be taking part in the invasion of Okinawa. The battle would last 82 days with the intent of using Kadena Air Base to invade Japan. America had 12,520 servicemen killed in action on Okinawa. It is estimated that roughly 110,000 Japanese soldiers lost their lives. The civilian population unfortunately took an even heavier toll and lost over 150,000 of its people. A large portion would commit suicide due to Japanese Propaganda depicting US troops as rapists and murderers. Leonard was lucky to survive the war and would be honorably discharged January 7th 1946. . . . . . . . . . . #WWII #ww2 #worldwar2 #worldwarii #navy #marines }#usmc #history #pacific #corpsman #okinawa #guam #war #worldwarmemorabilia #history #pacific #pacifictheater #pacificcampaign

German commandos captured in American uniform are prepared for execution, 23 December 1944 Unteroffizier Manfred Pernass, Oberfähnrich Günther Billing, and Gefreiter Wilhelm Schmidt "They were captured on the 17 December 1944 and had ID cards with the following names ‘Charles W. Lawrence’, ‘Clarence van der Wert’ en ‘George Sensenbach’ but Pernass, Billing, and Schmidt were given a military trial at Henri Chapelle, sentenced to death, and executed by a firing squad on 23-12-1944. Captain J. Eiser (medic) of the 633rd Medical Clearing Station pinned the white target patches on their chests, Schmidt’s glasses were taken off before he was shot and fanatic Billing shouted “Long live our Führer Adolf Hitler” at the moment supreme."

This novel, “That’s my Baby” by Frances Itani is beautiful and sad and just so human. I love the interconnection throughout this novel, everything weaves in a out of modern and present day with music as the common thread. On a personal note, this book was just so interesting in that is set so close to where I live. Deseronto is less than an hour from where I am, and it mentions events and occurrences in Belleville and Toronto which are close to home for me as well. This book has many central threads- a story of two cousins and their bond, a search for biological parents, WWII, the life of an artist that is being researched by the main character for her book, meeting famous jazz musicians such as Duke Ellington, a loved one struggling with dementia, the connection between the main character and the artist she is researching- there is so much going on. This book gives an insight into WWII in England as this is where the main character spends time during the war, and as it turns out, the main character of the book she is writing spent time here as well. There is mention of the bombings and rationing and people coming together to help others. It was interesting for me to hear about the infantry units in Prince Edward county as well that were nicknamed “the hasty Ps” of which the main characters boyfriend is a part of. Throughout the sadness and despair in this book, music is the highlight where love and hope shines through. There is music in the adventures of the 2 cousins, the love story of the main character, the present day bonds with loved ones, music is the light in this book. This book brought me to tears several times. It is very well-written and the characters are so relatable. The ending is surprising and shows us that are all more connected than we realize sometimes. Great book, I really recommend. #thatsmybaby #deserontoontario #WWII #dukeellington #jazzmusic #humanconnections #beautifulbooks

Battle of Okinawa - The Tennessee (BB-43) in Pacific theater. Here she is bombarding Okinawa with 14”/50 main battery guns as LVTs in the foreground carry troops to invasion beaches, 1 April 1945. This day was the beginning of the main landing on Okinawa. The Japanese were very strategic in avoiding artillery engagement with the battleships, preferring instead an aggressive assault deploying Kamikaze. On April 12 the Tennessee faced off with 5 enemy aircraft which were all shot down. However, with focus skyward, no one saw the Val approaching from lower altitude. The Tennessee sustained a hit to the bridge. 22 were killed, 107 wounded. That same night, the Tennessee was unsuccessfully targeted by a submarine. By April 14 the Tennessee had been through emergency repairs and the embattled crew returned to the front line, remaining there for two weeks. . . . #wwii2020 #wwii #USSTennessee #okinawa #okinawa75 #USNavy #kamikaze #navy #USMC #pacifictheatre #pacificcommand #wwii #worldwar2

No tragic events of historical significance have occurred on this date. Nah, I’m just kidding! It’s April Fool’s Day! And #OnThisDate in 1944, while trying to bomb Germany, the United States accidentally bombed Frauenfeld, Switzerland. No! I’m kidding again! It was actually Schaffhausen, Switzerland. #aprilfools #aprilfoolsday #justkidding #gotcha #didntseethatcoming #americanhistory #history #historylesson #switzerland #neutral #tragedy #notfunny #funfacts #funfact #oops #uhoh #darkjokes #thisreallyhappened #darkhumor #themoreyouknow #accident #loljk #april1st #1940s #wwii #storytime #truestory #daily #april

“My mother hid in plain sight with a false identity card, working as a maid for a family in Amstelveen—that’s outside Amsterdam. I gather they must have known she was Jewish.” – David (my father)
