A comic page I did in 2011 about La Nueve. A group of Spanish republicans that fought alongside with the French during Second World War and ended up being the first company to reach the Hôtel de Ville during Paris' Libération in August'44. This shots represent Alicante harbour, were some of those men escaped from Spain by ferry the last day of the Spanish Civil War. I wouldn't mind starting again this work if I had more time and resources. #guerracivilespañola #lanueve #secondworldwar #2db

Frankfurt Trench British Cemetery
———————————————————————— East of the infamous Redan Ridge, where the British offensive on the Somme petered out in the mud of the Battle of the Ancre, is the Frankfurt Trench British Cemetery, named for the nearby German trench of the same name. This trench was located on the reverse slope of Redan Ridge as part of the German intermediary position with the nearby Munich Trench. The trench was the second objective of Major-General Harper’s 51st Division on the first day of the Battle of the Ancre. The second line battalions were expected to assault the Frankfurt Trench at 7:30am, but slow progress in the face of the German Quadrilateral strongpoint meant that only the 5th Brigade was in a position to push onwards. 120 men of the 17/Royal Fusiliers, and the 2/Oxford and Bucks Light Infantry, along with a few of the Essex and King’s of the 6th Brigade attacked, and a few small isolated parties managed to penetrate the trench. Unable to link up with each other, they were pushed out by German bombers and snipers. When the attack was renewed on the 14th of November, the Frankfurt Trench was again the final objective, although once more it evaded capture. Again the attack was resumed on the 15th, with some of the 1/7th Argyll and Sutherland Highlanders reaching the trench and bombing some dug-outs, the rest ran into the British barrage, and the small foothold quickly became untenable and was evacuated. Again the British High Command designated the trench an objective on the 18th. Some units of the 11/Border Regiment forced their way into the Trench, but they were ejected after bitter fighting. With this failure the Trench remained in German hands until the withdrawal to the Hindenburg Line in early 1917. As for the cemetery itself, it was created by V Corps after the German retreat when their units cleared the Ancre battlefield. In total 150 casualties are now commemorated in this site, with over a fifth of these being unidentified. (Taken May 2018)

Estoy de interrail por muchas razones. Una de ellas es entender algo más lo que pasó en Europa durante la IIGM. Por ahora, no he conseguido el objetivo. La visita a Auschwitz es tan obligada como desesperante: salgo mucho más perdida de lo que entré. Todo el sadismo que ya conocía por libros, documentales y películas se ha vuelto real con los restos; pero las razones que pueda tener una persona “normal” para asesinar y torturar sin ton ni son a tanto inocente me sigue pareciendo una etapa oscura de nuestra historia colectiva. Los raíles que hoy día significan viajes, experiencias y aventuras, tornaron una vez en las vías de las peores ideas que se pudieran tener. Lanzaría desde aquí una petición para que no se vuelvan a cometer los errores del pasado, pero lo cierto es que mientras estoy escribiendo estas líneas, millones de personas se encuentran en situaciones que ni soy capaz de imaginar. #rail #tren #auschwitz #birkenau #holocausto #iigm #polonia #cracovia #nazi #segundaguerramundial #campodeexterminio #campodeconcentracion #train #holocaust #secondworldwar #poland #krakow #exterminationcamp #concentrationcamp #canon1300d

Spent this afternoon going to see the Wakes Colne viaduct, pillboxes and defensive structures still standing in the area which made up part of the Eastern Command Line along the River Colne, as part of Home front defences from July 1940 throughout the Second World War. It struck me how local historical sites such as this are under appreciated. It saddened me to see the amount of graffiti there was on site of such historical importance. I encourage anyone to have a look around if you pass through the area, and hopefully something can be done to clean up and improve the site. #Colchester #WakesColne #secondworldwar #homefront #history

🔶️Gun requested by : @danendradinata
14-inch (35.6 cm) Mark VII
🔻 Gun Length: 16.532 m
🔻 Rate Of Fire : 2 rounds per minute.
🔻range : 35,260 m at 40 degrees.
🔻range : 46,630 m at 45 degrees (Coastal artillery with super chargesabout)
🔻 Elevation : -3 / +40 degrees
🔻The high-velocity heavy gun had fallen out of favor in the British Navy because of the problems experienced with the 16"/45 (40.6 cm) Mark I used on the Nelson class battleships. For this reason, the design of the new 14"/45 (35.6 cm) Mark VII reverted to the lower velocities used in guns produced before and during World War I. As a result, the muzzle velocity of the new Mark VII did not differ appreciatively from that achieved by the 14"/45 (35.6 cm) Mark I carried by the battleship Canada (ex-Chilean Almirante Latorre) during World War I.
🔻The decision to use 14" (35.6 cm) guns on the King George V class Battleships was made in order to comply with Treaty restrictions, despite the fact that other European powers were building ships with larger weapons. As a result, the King George V class were arguably the weakest-armed battleships built in the 1930 to 1946 time period.
🔻The design of this gun was based upon the 12"/50 (30.5 cm) Mark XIV, which was an experimental weapon completed in August 1933 to test "all steel" construction techniques. These new 14" (35.6 cm) guns were to a no-wire, radial-expansion construction, which resulted in a stronger, lighter gun that was less likely to suffer from barrel droop. This improved design gave the British a weapon that was more accurate and had a longer barrel life than the larger 16"/45 (40.6 cm) Mark I. Unfortunately, the mountings for these weapons were prone to mechanical failures during the early part of the war, with both HMS Prince of Wales and HMS King George V having numerous problems during their engagements against Bismarck.
🔻In addition to those used on the battleships, a further two guns were used as coastal artillery at Dover, but their extemporized mountings were not suitable for targeting fast moving ships. These coastal guns were supplied with a supercharge, giving them a very long range.

“Hacksaw Ridge” (2016) es un film coproducido por Estados Unidos y Australia, de género drama biográfico y bélico basado en hechos reales, el cual fue dirigido por Mel Gibson y protagonizado por Andrew Garfield, Sam Worthington, Hugo Weaving, Teresa Palmer y Rachel Griffiths.
El guión es sobre el soldado estadounidense Desmond Doss, quien por motivos religiosos (adventista del séptimo día) se enlistó en el ejército en 1942 y sin hacer uso de armas para defenderse o para matar eventuales atacantes, logró en medio de la Batalla de Okinawa salvar 75 soldados de infantería que se encontraban heridos en el acantilado de Maeda. Después de la guerra, Desmond Doss fue condecorado por el presidente Harry S. Truman, siendo así; el primer objetor de conciencia en recibir la Medalla de Honor.

Es la segunda vez que me veo esta película y la he disfrutado mucho otra vez, gran producción; se destacan la fotografía, la dirección de arte, el vestuario y la música del gran Rupert Gregson-Williams (“Hotel Rwanda” – 2004, “The Legend of Tarzan” – 2016”, “Wonder Woman” – 2017…). Recomendado film que aborda un poco los dramáticos momentos de las tropas estadounidenses en el frente pacifico durante la Segunda Guerra Mundial, especialmente durante la Batalla de Okinawa. Este largometraje obtuvo numerosos premios e incluso ganó dos premios Oscar (Mejor Montaje y Mejor Sonido) de seis nominaciones para la edición 2017.#hacksawridge #films #desmonddoss #secondworldwar #melgibson #andrewgarfield #hugoweaving #rupertgregsonwilliams

"My tank hit a mine, one caterpillar track was hit so the tank started rotating. I got out of my tank and while I was running to another tank I was hit by a sniper.

The first bullet hit my helmet and I was knocked down, as soon as I was on my feet the second bullet hit my shoulder. I was right by the tank, the commander opened the lid and the third bullet hit me. The bullet went through me and out my back and I blacked out completely. That was my baptism of fire." - Nikolai G. Orlav, Soviet 4th Mechanised Corp, Stalingrad 1942.

A Walk Through Poland's History ⠀

Imagine walking through a room full of portrait shots of innocent people that we failed. There is no question that Poland suffered horribly in the war. It lost about 20 percent of its population, saw its borders shifted hundreds of kilometres to the west in 1945, millions uprooted, and ended up languishing for decades under Soviet domination.⠀

The museum gave us a perspective of not only how it was in Poland but also the other countries affected. For that reason, it has received a lot of backlash from the government. So sure was the staff of Poland’s new Museum of the Second World War that the government would not like it, that it was advertised with the slogan, “See it before they close it.”⠀

Allied forces air dropping supplies due to the dire food situation in the Netherlands, April 29th, 1945.
From September 1944 until May 1945, 22,000 people died and 4.5 million were affected by the consequences of the Dutch famine. In addition to a harsh winter and four years of brutal war, the Nazis imposed an embargo on food transport to the western Netherlands in September 1944 in retaliation for the Dutch national railway strike to hinder German military initiatives.
By the early Spring of 1945 the German high command in Holland had began to accept the war was lost and with the situation growing desperate for millions of Dutch under their control they agreed to allow Allied planes to drop food supplies without opposition, within specific air corridors and the Allies would not bomb the German positions.

British soldiers with a Mark II tank named "Lusitania" in Arras during the Battle of Arras, April 1917.
.
The pictured Mark II tank is of course named after the British passenger ship Lusitania, which was sunk by a German submarine on May 7, 1915.
.
The Battle of Arras was the supporting but crucial part of the Nivelle Offensive in the Spring of 1917, the main assault being the French at the Second Battle of the Aisne.
.
The British succeeded at breaking through at Arras, with the Canadians capturing the Battle of Vimy Ridge being a big part of it. The British brilliantly showed they had learnt from their mistakes from the Battle of the Somme the previous year; that they had evolved as a fighting force.
.
The French failure on the Aisne forced the British to continue their Arras offensive. The German defenses were better prepared than last time, and stood firm, inflicting thousands of casualties on the British.
.
The attack was called off on May 16, 1917. The British had suffered 160,000 casualties and had inflicted 130,000 on the Germans. Although the Nivelle Offensive was a clear failure, the British had made significant gains during the Battle of Arras, and was a more intelligent and sophisticated force afterwards.

New to my collection, again all British!

Those are also finds from the bottom of an allied 25 pounder from the 2nd World War.
Parts of the detonator / igniter (with marks), conductor bands (also one marked), protection caps and .303 shell.

From the battle of the Kapelsche veer / Operation Fall Braun. This bloody battle took place between the end of December 1944 and the beginning of February 1945 at the German bridgehead over the Maas in sprang-capelle North Brabant, where many soldiers were killed on both sides.

Panzerkampfwagen VI 'Tigers' of 1./SS Pz.Div. "Leibstandarte Adolf Hitler" in Vinnitsa, Ukraine. November 1943.
**
The 1st SS Panzer Division "Leibstandarte SS Adolf Hitler", short LSSAH, 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 during World War II.
**
The LSSAH participated in combat during the invasion of Poland, and was amalgamated into the Waffen-SS together with the SS-Verfügungstruppe (SS-VT) and the combat units of the SS-Totenkopfverbände (SS-TV) prior to Operation Barbarossa in 1941. By mid-1942 it had been increased in size from a regiment to a Panzergrenadier division and was designated SS Panzergrenadier Division "Leibstandarte SS Adolf Hitler". It received its final form as a Panzer division in October 1943.
**
Members of the LSSAH perpetrated numerous atrocities and war crimes, including the Malmedy massacre. They killed an estimated 5,000 prisoners of war in the period 1940–1945, mostly on the Eastern Front.
