Flowers were placed at the #memorial statue in #Manila, #Philippines this week to honour the Filipino "comfort women" who were forcibly taken to #Japanese front-line military brothels during #WorldWarII. It's believed that over 200,000 #Asian women, mostly #Koreans, forcibly served as #wartime #sex #slaves for the Japanese #army. An increasing number of cities in #SoutheastAsia, #America and #Europe are putting up statues #symbolising these #women in #solidarity with the few #survivors left and to #honour those who have died. Japan's government says the statues encourage anti-Japanese sentiment and insist that the women were provided by private brokers.

Undoubtedly the most famous scene from the 2004 movie/documentary Downfall, this depicts Adolf Hitler on a rant after he learns of a devastating loss.
.
In real life, Hitler was not much different. Towards the end of the war, he, like most Germans, knew it was over. However, he refused to take responsibility for his poor leadership which ultimately led to the downfall of the Third Reich. Instead, he blamed a nonexistent conspiracy that supposedly including all of his top generals and the entirety of the Wehrmacht, Luftwaffe and SS. Hitler often pinned losses in battle as sabotage and many German officers were executed towards the end of the war on implications of treason and sabotage.

Camouflage Uniform Patterns of World War II, Part I: A Brief Introduction

For much of the history of warfare standardized camouflage for the majority of a nation's armed forces has been rare in large scale conflicts until the 20th century. At first this took the form of simply making uniforms in one shade that helped blend into the environment. This was learned rapidly during World War I, by those who had not already adopted more drab and plain colors, but camouflage patterns were not made standard, and were mostly used on helmets, towed weapons, and vehicles. It should not be thought that single-tone camouflage is necessarily worse than complex patterns; during World War II it was found by U.S. troops that their camouflage patterns, while effective when stationary, were greatly lessened in their effectiveness when on the move. In any case World War II would see the rise of camouflage patterned uniforms, especially by Germany. This is in part due to various patterns being experimented with, as well as the Waffen SS putting patents on its patterns which prevented the rest of the German military from using them. The other major belligerents would also have camouflage patterns in use, but never on the same scale. At the beginning of the war, and to an extent throughout it, most nations would be using uniforms that were nearly the same shades they had fought the First World War wearing. This pattern, pun intended, of having equipment and doctrines carry over from the last war would, like most of its ilk, be phased out and/or evolved as the war continued.

This would be an awesome camo to implement into WT, even if it was a custom I could use. I’d love to have that on my C-4. Also, Awesome job 🔥🔥•

A Soviet IS 3 during the victory day parade at Berlin in 1945. --------------------
The IS-3 was a revolutionary heavy tank. It had extremely angled armour and heavy firepower. Many countries developed counters for the IS-3 for years while the Soviets had classed it as obsolete in the late 1940's. If deployed in combat, the German Tiger II would have had trouble killing this tank. #tank #tanks #war #ww2 #wwii #worldwar #worldwar2 #worldwarii #russia #russianbias #berlin #victoryday #victorydayparade #stalin #josephstalin

American Infantryman (1943) and German Machine Gunner (1943) @ First Division Museum – Wheaton, IL. American soldiers, many fresh from training, saw their first combat against German soldiers in North Africa. Inexperience and a battle-hardened enemy made for a tough learning curve in desert warfare. The warm climate meant often wearing only essential combat gear, leaving heavy jackets behind. When they landed in North Africa, soldiers of the 1st Division faced a deadly enemy. Germany’s Afrika Korps had been fighting there since the spring of 1941. Battle-tested, and well-equipped for desert warfare, they included combat veterans from the highly successful blitzkrieg campaigns across Western Europe. This Afrika Korps soldier carries a MG-34 machine gun. His tan tropical uniform and helmet provide effective desert camouflage.

I met Don Seki outside the Japanese American National Museum a few days ago. He was born in Honolulu in 1923 and served in the 442nd RCT during WW2. His parents departed on the last ship back to Japan in October of 1941, and they were separated for the duration of the war. Don lost his arm to German machine gun fire shortly after the battle to rescue the "Lost Battalion."

"The 🇬🇧 Battle-class destroyers" - (Part 18 = The Aircraft Direction Conversion of the "1943" Battle class ships) •••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••• Photo caption - The HMS Barrosa (D68), HMS Corunna (D97), HMS Alamein (D17) or HMS Aisne (D22), and HMS Agincourt (D86). Genoa, Italy. -------------------------------------------- As early as 1944 it had been suggested that the 1943 Battle class could be fitted with a long range early warning radar fitted to a mast amidships, albeit at the expense of some of the torpedo tubes and AA armament. The idea was not taken up at the time but in the early post war years a need was identified for a Fast Air Detection Escort (FADE). These ships would accompany the fleet and detect, identify and track potential targets and direct friendly aircraft to engage them, a role known as Aircraft Direction (A/D). -------------------------------------------- A new frigate, the Type 61 Salisbury-class, was designed to carry out this role, however, it became clear that with a top speed of only 24 knots these ships would not be able to keep up with a carrier group. Consideration was therefore given to converting existing ships to carry out this role with carrier groups. The latest long range radar available at that time was the Type 965. The Radar Type 965 came with two aerial configurations, the AKE-1, known as "the bedstead", and the AKE-2, known as "the double bedstead". The AKE-1 weighed in at almost two tons and the AKE-2 at a massive four tons. It soon became clear that only a large ship, like a "Battle" class destroyer would be able to carry such a load. #The🇬🇧BattleClassDestroyers -------------------------------------------- #GreatBritain #Australia #RoyalNavy #RoyalAustralianNavy #HMS #HMAS #WorldWarII #SecondWorldWar #WWII #WWIIHistory #PacificWar #BritishPacificFleet #PortsmouthHistoricDockYard #BritishAdmiralty #MediterraneanSea #ChathamDockyard #NavalHistory #NavalWarfare #MilitaryHistory #History #Historian #HistoryBuff

Третьего июня 2012 года из вод норвежского Хафрсфьорда (Hafrsfjord) был поднят поднят уникальный самолет — немецкий He-115 B/C — трехместный разведчик-торпедоносец, затонувший 28 декабря 1942 года после жесткой посадки на воду в километре от аэропорта Ставангера. Таких машин было построено 300 штук, и находка — сейчас единственный сохранившийся экземпляр. Подъем с сорокаметровой глубины обошелся в 250 тысяч крон, эти деньги выделили спонсоры. Вероятно, после реставрации самолет будет демонстрироваться в национальном авиамузее в городе Боде.

Masanobu Tsuji (辻 政信 Tsuji Masanobu, 11 October 1901 – ca.1961) was a Japanese army officer and politician. During World War II, he was an important tactical planner in the Imperial Japanese Army; he developed the detailed plans for the successful Japanese invasion of Malaya at the start of the war. He also helped plan and lead the final Japanese offensive during the Guadalcanal Campaign.

Adnan Saidi (b. 1915, Selangor, Malaysia–d. 1942, Singapore), a lieutenant of the Malay Regiment’s 1st Battalion, died fighting the Japanese in one of the fiercest battles in Singapore during World War II. Regarded a war hero, he led his men in the Battle of Opium Hill (Bukit Chandu), off Pasir Panjang, giving the Japanese a bitter taste of real combat so much so that when they captured him, they tortured him as revenge before killing him and burning his body. Adnan was posthumously awarded with medals for his courage while a memorial plaque was erected at Kent Ridge to commemorate his valour, and that of his comrades. The memory of this brave soldier also lives on at Kranji War Memorial where his name is etched on the main memorial column wall of the Kranji War Cemetery.

Japanese holdouts (残留日本兵 Zanryū nipponhei, "remaining Japanese soldiers") or stragglers were Japanese soldiers in the Pacific Theatre who, after the August 1945 surrender of Japan ending World War II, either adamantly doubted the veracity of the formal surrender due to dogmatic militaristic principles, or simply were not aware of it because communications had been cut off by Allied advances.

Some continued to fight the enemy forces, and later local police, for years after the war was over. Others volunteered with local independence movements during the First Indochina War and Indonesian War of Independence.

Intelligence officer Hiroo Onoda, who was relieved of duty by his former commanding officer on Lubang Island in the Philippines in March 1974, and Teruo Nakamura, who was stationed on Morotai Island in Indonesia and surrendered in December 1974, were the last confirmed holdouts, though rumors persisted of others.

Yevgeny Khaldei: "I went to the park in front of the parliament to film a column of soldiers passing. And I saw this scene. On the bench sat a woman, killed by two shots - in the head and neck, with her dead boy and a girl of fifteen. A little further, lay the body of the father. On his lapel he had a gold badge NSDAP, lying nearby was the gun. Out of the building ran the Parliament janitor,he said: - This is it, he did it, not Russian soldiers. Arrived at 6am. I saw him and his family out of a basement window, on the deserted street. He moved along the bench, told the woman to sit down, the same thing told to children. I did not understand what he was going to do. Then he shot the mother and son. The girl, he laid her down on the bench and also shot her. Stepped back, looked at the result and shot himself. "
(in Vienna, Austria, April 1945)

German cavalry during WW2. Even though most of the German army was mechanized, they still had a big proportion of cavalry units, mostly used against the USSR.

This picture depicts a camouflaged Soviet T-34/76 tank from the 206th tank battalion of the 90th Tank Brigade on his position near Stalingrad, somewhere around 1942. 
As pictured in the foreground, we got there the commander of the crew, the junior lieutenant Mikhail Kitiya, who was awarded on 22 October 1942 for an exemplary performance of combat missions during a battle with the Order of Lenin. But sadly Mikhail died in a battle (just three days later) on 25 October 1942 near the "Gornaya Polyana" state farm in Stalingrad. It's a very humbling photograph if you think about, that these soldiers died in action just few days later after getting awarded. But you can clearly see that they're looking very pleased to have a meal, but their emotions don't look like they're happy to see combat again, the fear was always there.

Sainte Mere Eglise and U.S. paratroopers (D-Day)
-
Sainte-Mère-Église, a commune in Normandy, a strategic crossroads town that led to Utah and Omaha beaches. The Germans had control Saint Mere Eglise since June of 1940 and the Germans turned it into a secondary inland outpost. The landing on Utah Beach on D-Day was assigned to the U.S. 4th Infantry Division. One of the roads in the area linked Sainte Mere Eglise directly to Utah Beach and it would provide the perfect exit for the landing troops on Utah. Taking control of the area would also prevent German reinforcements from the south. Mission Boston, a parachute combat assault at night was assigned to the U.S. 82nd Airborne Division as part of American airborne landings in Normandy on June 6, 1944. The capture of Sainte Mere Eglise was assigned to the 505th Parachute Infantry Regiment, 82nd Airborne Division. In the first hours of June 6, 1944, the U.S. pathfinders were dropped in the area to prepare the drop zones for following paratroopers. At 1.40 am, the men of the U.S. 82nd Airborne Division dropped over the Merderet River and marsh. Due to the poor weather conditions at the time with the heavy German anti-aircraft fire, the 82nd and 101st Airborne's drops scattered all over the place 4 times larger it was planned. The 505th Parachute Infantry Regiment was the only regiment that dropped almost accurately to the northwest of Sainte Mere Eglise. However, at 1.00 am, one of the houses near by the Church  in Sainte Mere Eglise was caught on fire (by German fire or flares that were shot by U.S. pathfinders) which raised the German alarm and alerted the Germans in the area. It also lightened up the sky and allowed the Germans to be able to locate the men of 2nd Battalion of the 505th PIR as they were coming down. 🔰Continuation in the comment!🔰

THE 15 BEST FILMS OF 2017
#RANKED2017 .

5. Dunkirk
Dunkirk is technical filmmaking brilliance. Its almost a silent film in its minimal dialogue but also maybe the loudest film of the year in its sounds of war. You may think i'm crazy for comparing these two, but Dunkirk reminds me a lot of Rogue One. Especially in the reception, or complaints. They're two war films, one on the beach and one in space, that people can't understand were never going to be character pieces. They're about the situation, the war, and the overall picture, and people just blindly yell, "yeah but no character development!!" and it drives me crazy. There isn't much character development in Dunkirk, or dialogue, because not every film has to have the same formula.  Dunkirk doesn't make you care for one particular person but rather the overall collective of soldiers trapped on this beach, surrounded on all sides, desperate and impending doom, and saved by a miracle. This was the first film i ever saw in IMAX and it blew me away. Nolan somehow made tension last for 90 straight minutes. This may be the most realistic feeling WWII film i've ever seen, and its up there with the greatest war films of all time. .

Number 4 will be up later today.

🇬🇧 A Finnish pilot takes a nap under his fighter Messerschmitt Bf 109 G. (Colored picture). Until 1941 it was the most important fighter of the Luftwaffe. They were built about 35,000 and Finland used more than 150 units.
 The Finns scored 667 confirmed victories with the type, losing 34 Bf 109s to enemy fighters or anti-aircraft fire. A further 16 were lost in accidents and eight aircraft were destroyed on the ground. Twenty-three pilots were killed.
102 Bf 109s survived the war, and they remained as main fighter of the Finnish Air Force for almost a decade after the end of World War II. Despite the aircraft's expected short lifespan (it was built as a wartime aircraft and was calculated to last about 100–200 flight hours), it continued in service until spring 1954 when the FAF entered the Jet Age. The last flight was on 13 March 1954 by Major Erkki Heinilä in aircraft MT-507.

Construidos como un avión de guerra de corta vida útil (se calculó que duraran entre 100 y 200 horas de vuelo), continuaron en servicio hasta la primavera de 1954, cuando la Fuerza Aérea Finesa los sustituyó por reactores.

An exhausted Marine sleeps under the watchful eye of his Dobermann Pinscher in the volcanic sands of Iwo Jima, 1945.

The Marine Corp utilized its own K9 handlers in the Pacific theater. These dogs were specially trained as messengers, delivering ammunition, medical supplies and of course intelligence messages. Sentry/guard dogs were trained to alert their handlers of approaching enemies and prevented ambushes. They were particularly useful late war as the Japanese military doctrine changed in favor of digging in and fighting to the last man; prolonging the conflicts as long as possible. The Japanese were skilled infiltrators and would sneak into Marine positions in the dead of night and kill the sleeping Marines with knives and bayonets. These dogs added some security, allowing the Marines to get what little shut eye they could while on the front line.

The picture shows a French resistance member, Georges Blind smiling at a German firing squad in October 1944.
-
However, this execution was a mock execution. The Germans tried to make him spill the information but Blind didn't spill a word and also smiled at the German firing squad in this picture. The Germans had tried it many times but Blind still hadn't spilled any words. Blind was later sent to a concentration camp where he was murdered on arrival sometime in November 1944. The interesting thing about this picture is how the Germans put Blind in the position. They put him in the corner of the building to reduce the chance of bullets ricocheting back to the firing squad members.

A shell shocked soldier in the trenches during World War One. I don’t know why,  but I find this image strangely beautiful. Grievous, but beautiful. I am not sure of the photographer of this piece or the name of the soldier in the photo. I do know that it is the cover image of the book “ Broken Men: Shell Shock, Treatment and Recovery in Britain, 1914-1930,” written by Fiona Reid.

This illustration shows a British RAF Hawker Tempest tipping one of the wings of the V-1 flying bomb to make it go out of its course. The V-1 flying bomb was a crude bomb (it glided not guided) which put England in terror during the last years of the war. 🔰Stick around for more info!🔰

"It sounded like an old motorcycle over your head, you'd rather hear the sound faded away than all the sudden the sound just went off because that'd mean you were in serious danger."

V-1 flying bomb (Buzz Bomb)
-
As the tide turned against the Germans, Hitler decided to create and launch the first operational Cruise Missile to terrorize the enemy civilians.
V-1 bomb was an unmanned aircraft. It would be launched from large ramp in Holland and would fly to the target area with the timer when the time had come it would cut its engine and fly straight to the ground and detonate 1,800 pounds explosives. After it cut its engine, the sound would go silent for 14 seconds and then it would hit the ground and create enormous explosion. Its first attack was on London, June 13, 1944, days after D-Day. It wasn't capable of hitting the target but it would hit somewhere not specific. RAF and USAAF had to redeploy anti-aircraft guns and their fastest fighter planes to take down these V-1 bombs but shooting it down would set off the bomb and take down both the bomb and shooter's aircraft so Allied pilots preferred "tipping" the V-1's wings by using their planes' wings which would send the bomb off its course or make it go down. This job was one of the most dangerous job for the Allied pilots in the last years of the war.
Over 10,000 V-1s were launched with around 2,400 got through which killed over 22,000 people and huge numbers of Allied airmen.

Batman Paratrooper: Major Malcolm Wheeler-Nicholson brainstormed this idea in 1942, in which he figured that parasailing into enemy lines would give the soldiers better control before they deployed their parachute.

The Bombing of Warsaw in World War 2 refers to bombing campaign commenced by the Germans during the siege of Warsaw in the invasion of Poland in 1939 and also refers to bombing raids campaign in Warsaw in 1944 during the uprising. During the war time 84% of the city was destroyed by German mass bombings, heavy artillery fire and the German demolitions of the city.

Recorded this awhile back for a friend who asked me what I like to do to work on my alternate picking. Been using this basic single string lick for years and it has always helped immensely. Just feel like sharing because I am loosing my staring contest with the celling and realised I haven’t posted anything on an electric guitar for awhile. Working on some new videos that I will post soon, once I touch up my chops to a level at which I am satisfied and well mainly because I actually really miss playing shreddy metal stuff. #shred #ithink #iamnotreallyashredder #lickoftheday #justfortoday #epiphone #lespaul #riffwars #lickwars #worldwarii #nottoosoon #goodafternoon
