Operation Market Garden ________________________________________________________ On February 4th, 1945, in the Crimean city of Yalta, three of the greatest minds in history gathered for their second meeting to determine the outcome of the German Reich once the Nazis had been defeated. Soviet leader Joseph Stalin intended to control the eastern half of Europe under communist rule. At the time of the conference Soviet forces were 65 km from Berlin, Germany’s capital. The Soviet leader was in a strong position. The western part of the continent was to be in the hands of US President Franklin Roosevelt and his British ally Winston Churchill. Roosevelt wanted Soviet support in the Pacific when America invaded Japan. Churchill wanted elections and democratic governments restored in countries formerly occupied by the Germans. They both wanted the Soviets to join the United Nations. Had a plan which had been executed four months earlier been successful, the British and American forces would have been at the gates of Berlin. Yalta may have resulted in a very different meeting. On September 17th, 1944, the plan, devised by British General Bernard Montgomery, commenced. American forces, advancing on a broad front from the Normandy beaches into the Belgian countryside had stalled as supplies of fuel for their transport had run out. Montgomery had obtained permission from American General Dwight Eisenhower, to initiate Operation Market Garden. Eisenhower did so to keep the retreating Germans under pressure, but he gave “limited priority” regarding supplies to the plan.The strategy was to drop three airborne divisions into the Netherlands, with the objective of capturing the town of Arnhem on the Rhine river. Troops would then drive into the industrial heartland of Germany, cutting off supplies to the Reich in the Ruhr valley. They would then head towards Berlin. The American 101st Airborne Division, led by General Maxwell Taylor, was to be dropped into the area around Eindhoven. The US 82nd, led by General James Gavin, was to land further north, to surround the town of Nijmegen and capture the bridge in that region. The big prize went to the British 1st Airborne group... ⬇️

A very nice portrait of a german soldier from the 9th Landsturm Infanterie Batallion Sylt IX. (prussian) in World War One! It is the great grandfather of one of my followers! Thank you very much for sending me this! (The guy who sent it to me wants to stay anonymus, and I respect that!).

The bloody battles of the Eastern Front from 1942 to 1943 ________________________________________________________ The battles on the Eastern Front constituted the largest military confrontation in history. They were characterized by unprecedented ferocity, wholesale destruction, mass deportations, and immense loss of life due to combat, starvation, exposure, disease, and massacres. The Eastern Front, as the site of nearly all extermination camps, death marches, ghettos, and the majority of pogroms, was central to the Holocaust. Over the course of four years, more than 400 Red Army and German divisions clashed in a series of operations along a front that extended more than 1,000 miles. Some 27 million Soviet soldiers and civilians and nearly 4 million German troops lost their lives along the Eastern Front during those years of brutality. To make things even more complex, forces within the Soviet Union were often fractured among themselves, early in the war, some groups had even welcomed the Germans and fought against the Red Army, in the hopes that Hitler’s troops would liberate them from Stalin. Later, as battles became desperate, Stalin issued Order No. 227 (“Not a Step Back!”) which forbid Soviet forces from retreating without direct orders. Commanders who sought to pull back faced tribunals, and foot soldiers faced “blocking detachments” of their own fellow soldiers, ready to gun down any who fled. The Eastern Front was decisive in determining the outcome of the European portion of World War 2, eventually serving as the main reason for the defeat of Nazi Germany. Above I have posted a series of photos taken during battles in the Eastern front during World War 2. _________________________________

The story of General Theodore Roosevelt Jr, son of Teddy Roosevelt, who fought in both World Wars by @fuehrer_of_photography _______________________________________________________A son will often attempt to live up to the legacy of their father, and when your father happens to be former President, Rough Rider, and man extraordinaire Teddy Roosevelt, that can be quite a tall order. Named after his father, Theodore Roosevelt Jr. fought in both World Wars and demonstrated the type of bravery that must clearly run in the Roosevelt blood. He made multiple petitions to be on the first wave of the D-Day invasion and when command finally relented, Roosevelt was the only General to be there with the men when the ramps first dropped. General Omar Bradley once noted when asked that the single most heroic thing he had ever seen in combat was Ted Roosevelt Jr on Utah Beach. For his actions that day, Theodore Roosevelt Jr. would receive the Medal of Honor and prove the most difficult thing to do in any war just might be killing a man named Theodore Roosevelt. Born in 1887 the eldest son of future President Teddy Roosevelt, Theodore was given his father’s namesake and all the burden of living up to it.  However, his father would also impress upon him the need for military training and for every man to be prepared to do his part when the time should come. Roosevelt would go on to attend Harvard and after graduating in 1909, he entered the business world.  Proving to be highly skilled, he was able to build quite a personal fortune prior to WW1 which might have given other men a little more incentive to sit out the war if possible. But other men didn’t have to call the famed Rough Rider of San Juan Hill daddy. In 1915, the US military had set up a summer camp for business and professional men to receive military training at their own expense.  This was used as a method to assess and increase military readiness as war erupted throughout Europe and would prove essential in building a junior officer’s corps for a rapidly expanding army needed to fight WW1. Three of Teddy’s 4 sons were graduates of this camp and were offered commissions when the US joined the war... CONT⬇

The story of the British Officer who went rogue and founded the SAS by @fuehrer_of_photography ________________________________________________________ If there hadn’t been a global war for survival taking place, Major David Stirling (left) is the type of British Officer who would have been thrown out of the army, if not court-martialed. As fate would have it, this rogue British Officer with a taste for action would found the famed British SAS and leave a legacy for one of the greatest clandestine fighting forces to enter harm’s way. Never mind that he broke into British Middle East Headquarters and ambushed a General with his plans for the SAS to gain approval, forget the fact that he raised the original SAS crew from a band of misfits and soldiers with disciplinary problems, and let’s not mention the fact that he stole half of the gear he needed from fellow Allied units. As the famed military saying goes, gear adrift is a gift, and Major David Stirling was simply one who knew how to open a gift. Without him, there would be no SAS, but thanks to him, enemies of Great Britain have every reason to sleep with one eye open. David Stirling was born in 1915 to an aristocratic family in Scotland. Stirling would display early on a heart for adventure and a joy for breaking the rules. While in college, he was dismissed for gambling and drinking before deciding that his life’s calling was to train to climb Mount Everest. During his training for the climb, #WW2 broke out and David Stirling decided to join the Scots Guard in 1939. However, this career almost ended early when after a late night out he fell asleep in an officer’s class and was almost thrown out of the military by the instructor. But he would have a fateful rendezvous with this instructor later in the war that would prove remarkably instrumental in creating the British SAS. In 1940, he volunteered for the No. 8 Commando unit and was deployed to North Africa in August 1941. But almost as soon as he arrived, the commando unit was disbanded as many felt the tactics of the unit provided too little a return at too high a cost. But Stirling thought otherwise. He would take it upon himself to create the CONT⬇️⬇️

The photo above shows Flight Sergeant George “Grumpy” Unwin of No.19 Squadron RAF climbing out of his Supermarine Spitfire Mk I QV-H at Fowlmere, near Duxford in Cambridgeshire after a sortie, September 1940. "You might shoot somebody, or you might miss them. But two or three minutes and there isn't an aeroplane in the sky anywhere. They've all gone. Bloody remarkable." So said Wing Commander George "Grumpy" Unwin, a Battle of Britain fighter pilot. He became one of the most famous of "The Few", as the pilots were named by the Prime Minister Winston Churchill. He flew with No. 19 Squadron, and during his time as a pilot was awarded the Distinguished Service Order (DSO) and the Distinguished Flying Medal (DFM) and Bar. The son of a miner, George Unwin was born in 1913 in Bolton-on-Dearne, Yorkshire. He joined the RAF as a clerk at the age of 16, volunteered to be a pilot in 1935 and flew fighters from Duxford a year later. Legend has it he was given the nickname "Grumpy" by fighter ace Douglas Bader, who was based at Duxford for a time. The story goes that Douglas Bader was noisily adjusting his artificial legs late one night when Mr Unwin told him to be quiet. "Shut up, Grumpy," Bader replied, and the name stuck. However, another story tells he earned the nickname after repeatedly complaining about not being allocated an aircraft during the Dunkirk crisis. George Unwin and his Alsatian Flash were a familiar sight around the airfield and appear in many archive photographs. He said he could be a bit of a rebel at times. "I personally used to break the law every Friday evening. "I used to take my fitter and my rigger... down to the local pub and buy them a couple of pints of beer every Friday evening.
"There was no question of lack of discipline, but that was my kind of thanks." George Unwin flew out of Duxford on many sorties for the Battle of Britain and was credited with 14 enemy aircraft shot down by the end of 1940.

The photo above shows Flight Sergeant George “Grumpy” Unwin of No.19 Squadron RAF climbing out of his Supermarine Spitfire Mk I QV-H at Fowlmere, near Duxford in Cambridgeshire after a sortie, September 1940. "You might shoot somebody, or you might miss them. But two or three minutes and there isn't an aeroplane in the sky anywhere. They've all gone. Bloody remarkable." So said Wing Commander George "Grumpy" Unwin, a Battle of Britain fighter pilot. He became one of the most famous of "The Few", as the pilots were named by the Prime Minister Winston Churchill. He flew with No. 19 Squadron, and during his time as a pilot was awarded the Distinguished Service Order (DSO) and the Distinguished Flying Medal (DFM) and Bar. The son of a miner, George Unwin was born in 1913 in Bolton-on-Dearne, Yorkshire. He joined the RAF as a clerk at the age of 16, volunteered to be a pilot in 1935 and flew fighters from Duxford a year later. Legend has it he was given the nickname "Grumpy" by fighter ace Douglas Bader, who was based at Duxford for a time. The story goes that Douglas Bader was noisily adjusting his artificial legs late one night when Mr Unwin told him to be quiet. "Shut up, Grumpy," Bader replied, and the name stuck.

A Gefreiter of the Infantry poses for a portrait, note that he has the Hitlerjugend pin which is worn pretty rare, well I haven't seen it often ... Anyway, he is well decorated with the Iron Cross of the 2nd and 1st class and the wound badge in black.
And if I see it correctly he wears the Feldbluse M43.

The story of Eddie Slovik, an American soldier executed for desertion ________________________________________________________ During #WW2, the US Army and its justice department dealt with many offenses carried out by the men in their ranks. From petty theft to rape and murder, life on the frontline sometimes caused soldiers to turn to crime for personal gain. But the army also had another problem, one that was much more common during wartime: desertion. Around 21,000 American soldiers faced charges for desertion, and 49 of those were given severe sentences. Out of those 49 soldiers who were sentenced to death, only one was executed. His was the first death sentence for desertion that was carried out since the American Civil War. His name was Eddie Slovik. Slovik was a troubled youth and was frequently arrested as a minor. At 12 years of age, he was arrested after he had broken into a foundry with several accomplices to steal brass to sell on the black market. Between 1932 and 1939, he was apprehended several times for crimes such as petty theft, breaking and entering and disturbing the peace. Slovik’s last adventure into disobeying the law during peacetime happened in 1939 when he and a few friends stole a car and crashed it while extremely intoxicated. Having spent three years in jail, Slovik was paroled in 1942. He found a job in a plumbing company, married and sort of backed down from his turbulent life. As he had a criminal record, he was at first classified as unfit for duty by the authorities. But as the war progressed and the US Army was in need of fresh recruits for the invasion of France, Slovik was reclassified in January 1944  and drafted. In August he was sent to join the 109th Infantry Regiment, US 28th Infantry Division in France, as part of a 12-man replacement detachment. En route to his unit, somewhere in France, he was met by an enemy artillery barrage. It was his first encounter with the reality of war, and his first instinct was to hide. Together with a friend he had met in basic training, Slovik found refuge in an improvised cover. As a result, the two men became separated from the rest of the detachment. It was there that... #war CONT⬇

The story of Hanns Scharff: Nazi Germany’s POW “Master Interrogator” ________________________________________________________ The Germans had a “Master Interrogator” who was so good at getting information out of prisoners that he became a legend. His methods were so effective that the US ended up adopting them. He didn’t use torture, cruelty, or any of the other techniques that the Nazis were famous for, however. He used something so unusual, it was mind-boggling. Hanns-Joachim Gottlob Scharff was never meant to be either a Nazi or their best interrogator. Born on December 16th, 1907 in Rastenburg, East Prussia to a wealthy family, his father was an army officer who died during WW1.  His maternal grandfather owned textile mills throughout Germany, so Hanns grew up in the family villa at Leipzig where he studied art. He also learned the family business, starting out with textiles and weaving before moving on to merchandising, marketing, and exporting. To train him in sales, Hans was sent to Adlerwerke’s (a now defunct firm) South African branch for a year. He ended up doing so well that they made him the director of their overseas division, a role he served for the next decade. He was a good salesman who knew how to handle people. While in South Africa he married Margaret Stokes, daughter of Captain Claud Harry Stokes, the British flying ace who scored five aerial victories in WW1. In 1939, the couple and their children went back to Germany for a vacation when #WW2 broke out. So now they were stuck. As a German citizen, he was drafted by the Wehrmacht, who sent him to Potsdam for training. His final destination was to be the Russian Front, but Margaret had other ideas. Since Hans was also fluent in English, she realized that he had a better chance of survival if he were kept as far away from the war front as possible. So Margaret convinced the authorities to use him as an interpreter. A telegram was therefore sent to Hans’ unit, ordering his transfer to Interpreters Company 12 in Wiesbaden. It arrived the day he was to leave for Russia, but when he got to Wiesbaden, the Military Police tried to put him with another battalion headed for Russia. #war CONTINUED⬇️

German paratrooper (Fallschirmjäger) posing for a photo during the battle of Monte Cassino, 1944.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
The Battle of Monte Cassino (also known as the Battle for Rome and the Battle for Cassino) was a costly series of four assaults by the Allies against the Winter Line in Italyheld by Axis forces during the Italian Campaign of World War II. The intention was a breakthrough to Rome. At the beginning of 1944, the western half of the Winter Line was being anchored by Germans holding the Rapido-Gari, Liri and Garigliano valleys and some of the surrounding peaks and ridges. Together, these features formed the Gustav Line. Monte Cassino, a historic hilltop abbey founded in AD 529 by Benedict of Nursia, dominated the nearby town of Cassino and the entrances to the Liri and Rapido valleys. Lying in a protected historic zone, it had been left unoccupied by the Germans, although they manned some positions set into the steep slopes below the abbey's walls.

'Ardennes Offensive'

A British Sherman tank crew of 29th Armoured Brigade, 11th Armoured Division, warm themselves around a fire in the village of Mesnil-Eglise near Dinant in Belgium, January 4, 1945. 
Left to right: Sgt Adam Kesson; Tpr John Davies; Tpr Jack Butterworth; Tpr Ronald Selwyn.

At the beginning of December, units of the 11th Armoured Division were placed in reserve around Ypres. The infantry was to benefit from a longer rest, while tank crews would receive new Comet tanks, a vehicle armed with a powerful 77 mm gun which was capable of engaging German panzers at longer range.
The start of the Ardennes offensive, (the Battle of the Bulge) modified British ambitions. Being one of few formations in reserve, the 11th Armoured was urgently recalled to active service with its old tanks and directed to hold a defensive line along the Meuse, between Namur and Givet. On 24 December, its advanced positions spotted and destroyed several tanks of the 2nd Panzer Division, east of Dinant. From 26 December onwards, the Germans started to withdraw and 11th Armoured was replaced by the 7th Airborne Division, after having pushed the enemy back beyond Celles. Only the 29th Armoured Brigade was retained in support of the Airborne units. It forced the Germans back to La Bure and Wavreille between 3rd and 7th January. From the 9th on, it reached Grupont, before being finally directed the following day to Ypres for rest, refit and training activities.

The 1st SS Panzer Division "Leibstandarte SS Adolf Hitler", short LSSAH, (German: 1. SS-Panzerdivision "Leibstandarte SS Adolf Hitler") began as Adolf Hitler's personal bodyguard, responsible for guarding the Führer's person, offices, and residences. Initially the size of a regiment, the LSSAH eventually grew into a division-sized unit.

He111H-3 (Wn.5606) V4+FA of Stab KG1
at Broomhill Farm, Camber, East Sussex. 
16.35 hrs.  September 11, 1940

Started with about thirty other bombers to bomb the Commercial Dock, London. The formation was flying at 21,000 ft and encountered no opposition until over London. In the target area the AA was very good and one engine was hit. The pilot turned for home but was surprised by several Spitfires near the coast, which stopped the second engine. The pilot made a forced landing and the crew set fire to the
aircraft which was burnt out. Although they were definitely trying to bomb the Commercial Docks, they also carried a camera in the aircraft for photographing the damage and according to the crew this accounted for the small bomb load but the crew destroyed the film on landing.

The story of how 230 American soldiers walked through enemy lines to safety ________________________________________________________ On February 15th, 1943, 230 American soldiers achieved a remarkable escape. Trapped behind German forces during fierce fighting in North Africa, they walked through the enemy lines to safety. In February of 1943 Tunisia was the site of some of the fiercest fighting in the war that was consuming half the world. American and British forces, with support from other Allied countries, were fighting to drive the Axis powers out of North Africa. The Germans and Italians, who had expanded their power in the region when France fell, were clinging on with bitter tenacity. On February 14th, the Allies received an unpleasant surprise. The Germans launched an attack on the Faid Pass and the tiny village of Side Bou Zid. It was not normally a remarkable part of the world. An obscure settlement in the vast expanse of the desert, Side Bou Zid became significant by an accident of geography. It was positioned on one of the routes the Allied forces in the west and Axis forces in the east could use to pass through the hills and attack each other. The attack on February 14th was a significant German advance. Sitting high on the slopes of a mountain named Djebel Lessouda, Major Bob Moore, the commander of an infantry battalion from the 168th Regiment, watched Axis tanks overrun Allied artillery and infantry below. As more German troops advanced, he struggled to tell friend from foe. At times when they could reliably tell the difference, his men used mortars to attack German troops passing beneath them. For the most part, they sat tight and held off German attacks against them. By the end of the day, it was evident Moore’s troops, along with several other groups, had been cut off by the German advance. The next day, an armored battalion of 52 tanks under Lieutenant Colonel J. D. Alger was sent to rescue them. Alger’s formation advanced across what looked like flat ground. Alger, however, had learned the dangers of the region by then. Ravines supplied cover that could provide the perfect hiding place for an ambush. As German planes strafed.. #ww2 CONT⬇

The story of the British Officer who went rogue and founded the SAS ________________________________________________________ If there hadn’t been a global war for survival taking place, Major David Stirling (left) is the type of British Officer who would have been thrown out of the army, if not court-martialed. As fate would have it, this rogue British Officer with a taste for action would found the famed British SAS and leave a legacy for one of the greatest clandestine fighting forces to enter harm’s way. Never mind that he broke into British Middle East Headquarters and ambushed a General with his plans for the SAS to gain approval, forget the fact that he raised the original SAS crew from a band of misfits and soldiers with disciplinary problems, and let’s not mention the fact that he stole half of the gear he needed from fellow Allied units. As the famed military saying goes, gear adrift is a gift, and Major David Stirling was simply one who knew how to open a gift. Without him, there would be no SAS, but thanks to him, enemies of Great Britain have every reason to sleep with one eye open. David Stirling was born in 1915 to an aristocratic family in Scotland. Stirling would display early on a heart for adventure and a joy for breaking the rules. While in college, he was dismissed for gambling and drinking before deciding that his life’s calling was to train to climb Mount Everest. During his training for the climb, #WW2 broke out and David Stirling decided to join the Scots Guard in 1939. However, this career almost ended early when after a late night out he fell asleep in an officer’s class and was almost thrown out of the military by the instructor. But he would have a fateful rendezvous with this instructor later in the war that would prove remarkably instrumental in creating the British SAS. In 1940, he volunteered for the No. 8 Commando unit and was deployed to North Africa in August 1941. But almost as soon as he arrived, the commando unit was disbanded as many felt the tactics of the unit provided too little a return at too high a cost. But Stirling thought otherwise. He would take it upon himself to create the force to help win the war in CONT⬇️⬇️

A Maquisard carrying a German MP.40 (Machinenpistole) at the time of the Liberation of Paris during August 1944.

The photo was taken by Lithuanian born photographer, Izraelis Bidermanas “Izis”, found refuge in the region of Limoges during the Second World War where he joined the French Resistance fighters. During the Liberation in August of 1944 he made portraits of his fellow “Maquisards”. The maquis increased fast with the reinforcement of many young men trying to escape the invasion by German troops in November 1942 and the STO (Service du travail obligatoire) in early 1943. Maquis operations changed from sabotages in 1943 to massive attacks against occupation troops in 1944. At its peak, the Limousine maquis is estimated to have reached between 8,000 and 12,000 fighters.

An american GI and a medic of the 80th US Infantry in Luxembourg at the german border are reading a comic during their break. 1945. You can see that the GI has ammo for the M1 Garand which he is holding.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
The M1 Garand is a .30 caliber semi-automatic rifle that was the standard U.S. service rifle during World War II and the Korean War and also saw limited service during the Vietnam War. Most M1 rifles were issued to U.S. forces, though many hundreds of thousands were also provided as foreign aid to American allies. The Garand is still used by drill teams and military honor guards. It is also widely used by civilians for hunting, target shooting, and as a military collectible.

The story of Le Paradis, the massacre of British soldiers ________________________________________________________ In 1940, members of the British military were slaughtered, after they had surrendered to German forces. Two survived, but no one believed their story. However, before the war ended, some Germans wanted those responsible punished. It started on May 26th, 1940. British and Allied forces in France were retreating from the German onslaught, withdrawing to Dunkirk for evacuation back to Britain. The Germans followed, all expecting the worst. To everyone’s surprise, however, the Germans did not press their advantage. They stopped for three days, long enough to let the evacuation happen. By the time it ended on June 4th, about 330,000 Allied troops had made it out of France. Not all did, though. Less well-remembered were those who fought to buy those evacuees the time they needed. SS-Obergruppenführer Theodor Eicke was fanatically loyal to Nazi ideology. He was in charge of the 3rd SS Division Totenkopf, a paramilitary group that shared his views. As a result of their reckless behavior, Totenkopf suffered more casualties than other German forces at the start of #WW2. On May 24th, the Totenkopf had been crossing the La Bassée River on the way to the town of Béthune when they came under fire from the British. To their surprise, they were ordered back across the river as their tanks were needed at Dunkirk. The 2nd Battalion of the Royal Norfolk Regiment and the 8th Lancashire Fusiliers were ordered to hold the Allied line at the French villages of Riez du Vinage, Le Cornet Malo, and Le Paradis for as long as they could. For them, there would be neither rescue nor evacuation, and they knew it. At dawn on May 27th, the Totenkopf attacked the British at Le Cornet Malo at the cost of four dead German officers. By the time the British surrendered, some 150 men from both sides lay dead and about 500 were wounded. Le Paradis was next. The 2nd Royal Norfolk’s headquarters were about a mile north of Le Paradis, at a farmhouse called Cornet Farm just beside the Paradis Road. Across were the headquarters of the 1st Royal Scots, who also buckled down. #wwii #war CONT⬇️
The story of Le Paradis, the massacre of British soldiers ________________________________________________________ In 1940, members of the British military were slaughtered, after they had surrendered to German forces. Two survived, but no one believed their story. However, before the war ended, some Germans wanted those responsible punished. It started on May 26th, 1940. British and Allied forces in France were retreating from the German onslaught, withdrawing to Dunkirk for evacuation back to Britain. The Germans followed, all expecting the worst. To everyone’s surprise, however, the Germans did not press their advantage. They stopped for three days, long enough to let the evacuation happen.

Sgt. Clearance Pfeifer and Pfc. Sherman Maness of the 11th Armored Division bringing back two captured German prisoners, Longchamps, Belgium. January 13 1945

Notice the .45-cal. M3 SMG 'Grease Gun' and .30 cal. Browning MG mounted on the Jeep.

13 January 1945 "Initially delayed in order to insure a final daylight coordination, CCA launched its attack at 1000 in a column formation astride the Longchamps-Bertogne highway; infantry leading, tanks following; supported by artillery an the fire of CCR in position on its W flank. At 1100 an enemy armored counterattack of approximately 20 tanks developed on the E flank. Massed artillery fire effectively adjusted by an air OP, broke up this enemy effort. Six tanks were definitely hit and set afire and the remainder withdrew to the NE. CCA tanks then took the lead and made progress against moderate opposition until reaching an enemy minefield midway through the Bois de Nom de Falize. Engineers breached the minefield and the attack continued." #war #ss #soldiers #ww1

The story of Tuskegee Airmen brothers George and Arnold Cisco, better known as the ‘Cisco Kids’ _______________________________________________________Arnold and George Cisco grew up in mostly white, rural Jerseyville, Illinois, graduating with honors from Jerseyville High School in the 1930s. They both attended the University of Illinois. Arnold received a bachelor of arts degree in languages and graduated Phi Beta Kappa. George earned a Bachelor of Science degree. The boys’ father, Roscoe Cisco was a noted piano player and music teacher. He also was a caretaker for a well-to-do white St. Louis family’s Jerseyville summer house, where the boys and their younger brother Harlow were born. When #WW2 began, the Cisco brothers were determined to fight for their country, in spite of the fact that the armed services were segregated. The Navy designated blacks to serve as cooks or laborers. The Army formed all-black units, one of which built the Alaskan Highway. The U.S. Army Air Corps, citing bogus sociological studies from Southern colleges, determined that blacks were not capable of flying. Never mind the hundreds of black student pilots who trained at institutions such as Howard University. Thus the flight cadets at Mouton Field in Tuskegee, Alabama were for show only. Until Eleanor Roosevelt appeared, to inspect the field, and to the dismay of her Secret Service detail, climbed aboard the training plane of flight instructor Alfred “Chief” Anderson (as a kid, he taught himself to fly and land), and the two took off for a flight around Alabama. Upon returning to base, a Look Magazine photographer shot a photo of the smiling Mrs. Roosevelt and Chief Anderson. Whether or not the event was staged, the Tuskegee Airmen would soon be sent to join the war effort. George Cisco initially joined the U.S. Army’s 761st Tank Battalion after graduating from officer training school at Fort Knox, Kentucky in 1943, with the rank of Second Lieutenant. Eventually, he transferred to the Army Air Corp and earned his pilot’s wings, officially becoming a Tuskegee Airman. He was killed on a training mission on August 16th, 1944, when his Thunderbolt plane was hit by another plane ⬇️⬇️⬇

James M. Gavin, pictured here as a major general (1907 – 1990), the youngest major general to command an American division in #WW2. James Maurice “Jumpin’ Jim” Gavin was the youngest lieutenant-general in the US Army ever, and the only general to make four combat airborne jumps in the history of the United States. Hence his nickname, "Jumpin' Jim". Before he became a general, he spent a life of struggle with very humble beginnings. He was an orphan born in Brooklyn in 1907. Jim was adopted as a two-year-old boy by Martin and Mary Gavin from Mount Carmel, Pennsylvania in 1909. Gavin grew up in a mining family, but he realized that life in the coal mines of Pennsylvania was not for him. He ran away from home in 1924, at the age of 17. He enlisted in the US Army as an orphan, as he required his parents’ consent being underage. He served in the U.S. Coast Artillery at Fort Sherman, Panama. After serving for six months, Gavin was promoted to a corporal. In his free time, he read books about military tactics throughout history and dreamed about enrolling in the prestigious West Point Military Academy. In pursuit of his dream, he applied to a local army school and became a candidate for West Point. He again lied about his age stating he was 21, instead of 18. He had little formal education and, to keep up in class, he spent the early hours of every morning reading in the bathroom where there was light. Following four years of hard work he graduated in 1929, becoming a second lieutenant. He was stationed at Camp Harry J. Jones, Arizona, along with the 25th Infantry Regiment, one of the few units made up entirely of African American soldiers. There he became acquainted with the US Army segregation policy, against which he fought in the later years of his career. During the pre-war years, Gavin advocated radical innovations within the US Army strategic doctrines. He was very much aware that the nature of warfare was changing. Tanks and airplanes, he believed would play a much greater role and to supply them with gasoline, along with other logistics, were the future problems of military leaders. His opinions did not go unnoticed, as he was sent back to West Point #war ⬇️⬇️

USAAF Capt. Dewey E. Newhart
“Mud N’ Mules” Republic P-47D-15-RE Thunderbolt LH-D s/n 42-76141 350th Fighter Squadron, 353rd Fighter Group, 8th Air Force

Capt. Newhart was killed in action on the 12th of June 1944 during a mission over Northern France.
He was leading the squadron down to strafe an enemy truck convoy near Saint-Saëns, Normandy when he was jumped by 8-10 Bf.109s whilst flying a P-47D LH-U(s/n 42-26402) named “Soubrette”, he was hit and radioed that he was attempting to make landfall. Before he could escape, he was attacked by two more fighters, and was shot down and killed.

The pictured aircraft was re-assigned to Capt. Lonnie M. Davis who renamed it “Arkansas Traveler” but retained the mule artwork out of respect for Newhart. _________________________________

Wilhelm 'Willi' Hübner, one of the youngest recipients of the Iron Cross, 1945 by @fuehrer_of_photography _______________________________________________________As casualties mounted during #WW2, Germany was forced to call up ever younger conscripts to fill the ranks of the Wehrmacht. So dire was the situation at the end of 1944, that boys born in 1928 were called up to serve the Fatherland. They were 15 or 16 years old and had grown up in the shadow of Nazism. Each would have spent their teenage years in the Hitlerjugend (Hitler Youth) preparing them for military service. The net result of this was a cadre of youths that grew up surrounded by Nazi propaganda and were called up to serve the Vaterland they had been raised and trained to defend. In many cases they fought bravely against overwhelming odds, but the lives of thousands of these youths were wasted by throwing them senselessly into battle with the Allies when the war was already lost. One of these young soldiers was Willi Hübner, a 16-year-old messenger with the Führer Grenadier Division. At the beginning of March 1945 the Führer Grenadier Division was part of a counterattack to retake the Silesian town of Lauban. After 8 days of fierce fighting the town was secured, and cameras from Die Deutche Wochenschau were there to capitalise on this success for propaganda purposes. Hübner was first awarded Eisernes Kreuz 2 Klasse (Iron Cross 2nd Class) by Reich Minister of Propaganda Joseph P. Goebbels in Lauban. At 16, he was one of the youngest recipients of the award. One day after he was flown to Berlin, given a new uniform, redecorated by Artur Axmann, and was told to wait to meet Hitler. On March 20th, 1945 there was an award ceremony in the gardens of the Reichskanzlei in Berlin for members of the Hitlerjugend who had distinguished themselves in combat. The footage from this event is very famous, as is the last known footage of Hitler to be recorded (seen in the bottom). Willi Hübner was compelled to tell his story for the cameras: “When the Russians were closing in on Lauban, I reported for voluntary duty as a messenger to the combat commander.

The story of General Theodore Roosevelt Jr, son of Teddy Roosevelt, who fought in both World Wars _______________________________________________________A son will often attempt to live up to the legacy of their father, and when your father happens to be former President, Rough Rider, and man extraordinaire Teddy Roosevelt, that can be quite a tall order. Named after his father, Theodore Roosevelt Jr. fought in both World Wars and demonstrated the type of bravery that must clearly run in the Roosevelt blood. He made multiple petitions to be on the first wave of the D-Day invasion and when command finally relented, Roosevelt was the only General to be there with the men when the ramps first dropped. General Omar Bradley once noted when asked that the single most heroic thing he had ever seen in combat was Ted Roosevelt Jr on Utah Beach. For his actions that day, Theodore Roosevelt Jr. would receive the Medal of Honor and prove the most difficult thing to do in any war just might be killing a man named Theodore Roosevelt. Born in 1887 the eldest son of future President Teddy Roosevelt, Theodore was given his father’s namesake and all the burden of living up to it.  However, his father would also impress upon him the need for military training and for every man to be prepared to do his part when the time should come. Roosevelt would go on to attend Harvard and after graduating in 1909, he entered the business world.  Proving to be highly skilled, he was able to build quite a personal fortune prior to WW1 which might have given other men a little more incentive to sit out the war if possible. But other men didn’t have to call the famed Rough Rider of San Juan Hill daddy. In 1915, the US military had set up a summer camp for business and professional men to receive military training at their own expense.  This was used as a method to assess and increase military readiness as war erupted throughout Europe and would prove essential in building a junior officer’s corps for a rapidly expanding army needed to fight WW1. Three of Teddy’s 4 sons were graduates of this camp and were offered commissions when the US joined the war. Now a Major, Roosevelt Jr.. CONTINUED⬇

A german soldier of the 3rd SS-Panzerdivision "Totenkopf" gives a soviet tanker some water next to a T-34. Battle of Kursk.
--------------------------------------------------------------------- The Battle of Kursk was a Second World Warengagement between German and Sovietforces on the Eastern Front near Kursk (450 kilometres or 280 miles south-west of Moscow) in the Soviet Union during July and August 1943. The battle began with the launch of the German offensive, Operation Citadel (German: Unternehmen Zitadelle), on 5 July, which had the objective of pinching off the Kursk salient with attacks on the base of the salient from north and south simultaneously. After the German offensive stalled on the northern side of the salient, on 12 July the Soviets commenced their Kursk Strategic Offensive Operation with the launch of Operation Kutuzov (Russian: Кутузов) against the rear of the German forces in the northern side. On the southern side, the Soviets also launched powerful counterattacks the same day, one of which led to a large armoured clash, the Battle of Prokhorovka. On 3 August, the Soviets began the second phase of the Kursk Strategic Offensive Operation with the launch of Operation Polkovodets Rumyantsev (Russian: Полководец Румянцев) against the German forces in the southern side of the Kursk salient.

The final moments of a Yokosuka D4Y Suisei Japanese Dive Bomber as it leaves a trail of smoke and flame as it falls toward the ocean, March 18th, 1945. The Japanese Dive bomber was caught squarely by antiaircraft fire from gunners of the USS Wasp. The pilot might have already been dead by the time the bomber was going down; getting knocked out would probably be a small mercy compared to being burnt alive or drowning. There’s a passage from an autobiography of a #WW2 British bomber crew member called “In for a Penny, in for a Pound”: he describes that if they were to survive a crash but find themselves completely stuck in a burning wreck, they were instructed to stick their face in the flames and breath in. Their lungs would be incinerated from the heat, making them pass out, allowing a quicker and less painful death than being burned alive. Dive bombers, as the name implies, were aircraft specializing in delivering bombs using a diving attack. By flying along a steep trajectory that closely matched that of the bomb, the dive bomber eliminated much of the error in aim in the direction of approach. As a result, a well-trained pilot could hit his target better than 50% of the time, and the superb Japanese Navy carrier pilots achieved a hit accuracy of better than 80% against the British carrier Hermes and cruisers Cornwall and Dorsetshire in early 1942. It is a measure of how badly Japanese pilot skill deteriorated that, by the end of the war, the remaining pilots were hitting their targets only 10% of the time. Overall, dive bombers scored 20% hits against stationary battleship-sized targets during the war. Part of the wide variation in effectiveness of dive bombers can be attributed to the importance of leadership. Dive bomber formations on both sides attacked in 20 to 30 second intervals behind their leader. If the leader came close to the target with his bomb, the pilots behind him could easily adjust their aim and have an excellent chance of scoring hits. If the leader was wide of the target, the entire squadron might miss the target. Although dive bombing was originally developed as a means of accurate delivery, the attack profile of a dive bomber CONT⬇️⬇️

There’s a passage from an autobiography of a #WW2  British bomber crew member called “In for a Penny, in for a Pound”: he describes that if they were to survive a crash but find themselves completely stuck in a burning wreck, they were instructed to stick their face in the flames and breath in. Their lungs would be incinerated from the heat, making them pass out, allowing a quicker and less painful death than being burned alive. Dive bombers, as the name implies, were aircraft specializing in delivering bombs using a diving attack. By flying along a steep trajectory that closely matched that of the bomb, the dive bomber eliminated much of the error in aim in the direction of approach. As a result, a well-trained pilot could hit his target better than 50% of the time, and the superb Japanese Navy carrier pilots achieved a hit accuracy of better than 80% against the British carrier Hermes and cruisers Cornwall and Dorsetshire in early 1942. It is a measure of how badly Japanese pilot skill deteriorated that, by the end of the war, the remaining pilots were hitting their targets only 10% of the time. Overall, dive bombers scored 20% hits against stationary battleship-sized targets during the war. Part of the wide variation in effectiveness of dive bombers can be attributed to the importance of leadership. Dive bomber formations on both sides attacked in 20 to 30 second intervals behind their leader. If the leader came close to the target with his bomb, the pilots behind him could easily adjust their aim and have an excellent chance of scoring hits. If the leader was wide of the target, the entire squadron might miss the target. Although dive bombing was originally developed as a means of accurate delivery, the attack profile of a dive bomber CONT⬇️⬇️

This is Bf 109 E 4 "White 5" of 3rd Gruppe/JG 53 (53rd Fighter wing, possibly based in Guernsey), shot down over Margate, Kent on 6th September 1940. 
The pilot was Unteroffizier Schulte and the aircraft crash landed near Manston airfield. The swastika has been painted out. That was because the Wing Commander, Hans-Jürgen Erdmann von Cramon-Taubadel married a girl who, in Goering's opinion, was not suitable (Jewish). He therefore ordered the unit to remove their "Ace of Spades" mascot from the cowlings of their Messerschmitts and paint a red band around the noses of their aircraft as a mark of shame. 
When Cramon-Taubadel was replaced, the “Ace of Spades” mascot was reinstated, but, in response to this, the unit overpainted the swastikas of their aircraft in protest.

The story of Ira Hayes, an Iwo Jima flag raiser and a reluctant hero by @fuehrer_of_photography ________________________________________________________ Ira Hamilton Hayes was one of five men who helped raise the American flag over Mt. Suribachi on the Japanese island of Iwo Jima on February 23rd, 1945. This event was immortalized in a black-and-white photograph that symbolized America’s inevitable victory in #WW2. Sadly, the end of that war would also spell Hayes’ own. Hayes was a Pima Indian of the Akimel O’odham people in Arizona, US. According to friends and family, he was an extremely shy kid who could go for days without talking. He was also incredibly intelligent, becoming literate at four and achieving fluency in English, something unusual for the Pima back then. When Japan bombed Pearl Harbor on December 7th, 1941, 17-year-old Hayes told friends that he was going to become a Marine. On August 26th, 1942, he did just that, and volunteered to become a Marine paratrooper. They called him Chief Falling Cloud at the Parachute Training School and promoted him to Private First Class on December 1st, 1942. Hayes saw his first actual combat on December 4th, 1943 as a platoon automatic rifleman with Company K at the Bougainville Campaign in Papua New Guinea. He then landed on Iwo Jima on February 19th, 1945 as part of Company E, 28th Marine Regiment of the 5th Marine Division where he’d find unwanted and unwelcome fame. The Battle of Iwo Jima lasted till March 26th and became one of the bloodiest battles during WW2. In its aftermath, some 6,821 Americans were killed, while another 19,217 were wounded. The Japanese, however, lost between 17,845 and 18,375 men. On the first day alone, 760 Marines had to make a near-suicidal charge from the beaches to secure their position. It didn’t take them long to discover the reinforced bunkers hiding in the dark volcanic sand. Japanese artillerymen would open metal doors, fire at the Americans, then shut them quickly to avoid return fire. The solution was to force open those doors and throw a grenade in. Once the Marines got inside, they found a system of tunnels which made their guns useless because of the.. #war CONTINUED⬇️

The story of Antis the Bomber Dog, who went on bombing missions to Germany and earned a medal ________________________________________________________ In the immense tragedy of war, some people need something to hold on to during its darkest moments. For a Czech Pilot at the start of #WW2, it was a small, emaciated German Shepard puppy. It is a story that almost ended tragically on several occasions. However, the bond between man and dog transcended the fall of nations and the horrors of combat and resulted in the dog earning a Dicken Medal. Serving in exile after the Nazis had taken his homeland, Czech airman Vaclav Robert Bozdech was flying with the French Air Force based in Saint-Dizier in early 1940. During a reconnaissance mission, Bozdech and fellow airman Pierre Duval were shot down by anti-aircraft fire and crashed in no-mans land between the French and German lines. They made their way to an abandoned farmhouse for cover where they discovered the starving puppy. Bozdech fed it melted chocolate and snow which it drank. The airmen realized they needed to escape while it was still dark. Bozdech left a pan of water and more chocolate behind for the pup and locked the door. As they ran to nearby trees, they could see the flares fired by German soldiers who were looking for them. As they approached the trees, they could hear the puppy howling in the farmhouse. They agreed they needed to kill the dog to prevent it giving away their position to the enemy. Bozdech went back, picking up a rock on the way with which to kill the puppy. However, when he opened the door, he found he could not do it. Instead, he nestled the puppy in his flight jacket and returned to the wood. A spectacular act of compassion considering an ill-timed bark could have meant death or capture for the airmen. Fortunately, they were found by French soldiers sent out to search for them. When they returned to their base, Bozdech joined his fellow Czech airmen in exile who played with the puppy. They decided to name it Antis (or Ant for short) after a Czechoslovakian aircraft. The exiled Czechs time in France was cut short when Germany brought the war to the Western front in May of 1940. ⬇️⬇️

By @fuehrer_of_photography The photo above shows US Marine Colonel Francis Fenton conducting the funeral of his son Private First Class Mike Fenton, near Shuri, Okinawa, May 1945. This picture depicts one of the most heart wrenching moments to occur on Okinawa involved a family with a proud Marine heritage. Colonel (later Brigadier General) Francis I. Fenton enlisted in the Marine Corps in August 1917. He gradually rose through the ranks until he became division engineer officer of the 1st Marine Division in July 1944. With this unit, Fenton won a Bronze Star for duty at Peleliu before landing on Okinawa. While Colonel Fenton advanced to higher command, his younger son, Michael, enlisted in the Marine Corps on August 17th, 1943, and joined B Company, 1st Battalion, 5th Marine Regiment, 1st Marine Division, the same division in which his father commanded the engineers. Reportedly turning down a commission so he could fight at the front, Michael served as a scout-sniper on Okinawa. Father and son met once during the fighting when their paths crossed at a partially destroyed Okinawan farmhouse. After exchanging news from home, including information on Michael’s older brother, Francis, Jr., who had been commissioned a Marine officer in 1941, the two family members returned to their work. They would never talk again. On May 7th, 1945, while beating back a Japanese counterattack not far from Sugar Loaf, 19 yr old Pfc. Michael Fenton was killed. When his father received the bitter news, he traveled to the site of his son’s death and knelt down to pray over the flagdraped body, a scene that produced one of the Pacific war’s most touching photographs. Upon arising, Colonel Fenton stared at the bodies of other Marine dead and said: ‘Those poor souls. They didn’t have their fathers here’. After the burial, Colonel Fenton returned to his headquarters and wrote a brief note to his wife, Mary, in San Diego. The soldier then resurfaced. Fenton fixed his attention on a large map hanging in his headquarters, studied it closely for a time, then said to his subordinate, “We’d better double the guard around No. 5 bridge. The Nips may try to blow it”. #ww2 #war #wwii  CONTINUED⬇
