November 20th 1943, The Battle of Makin and Tarawa took place. The two battles took place at the same time in the Gilbert islands in the pacific. The two battles were also the start to Operation Galvanic which was the invasion of the Gilbert islands to liberate them from Japanese control. On the Tarawa Atoll the landings were filled with heavy casualties as the Japanese defended the beach’s fiercely. Almost 1,700 US personnel died including 700 navy due to a sinking ship and 1,000 marines while the Japanese lost almost 5,000. On Makin island the islands received less fire upon landing but more as they moved into the woods due to the constant naval and air bombing before they landed. It took only 2 days for them to capture the island with little losses. 763 were killed with 697 navy personnel dead due to escort carrier sunk and battleship damaged while only 66 army personnel died while the Japanese lost only 395. The Americans overall won the battles and captured both islands but at a cost of men and 2 ships. - - -

⬇️⬇️⬇️ FOR SALE!!! ⬇️⬇️⬇️ Fiat BR.20 Cicogna, var. BR.20M, Regia Aeronautica, 1941, 1/72 • Check out auctions in our e-shop for this and many more models!! Just click on the link in profile 😉 • The Fiat BR.20 Cicogna (Italian: "stork") was a low-wing twin-engine medium bomber that was developed and manufactured by Italian aircraft company Fiat. It holds the distinction of being the first all-metal Italian bomber to enter service; at the time, it was regarded as one of the most modern medium bombers in the world. The BR.20 has its origins in a request by the Regia Aeronautica (Italian Royal Air Force) issued during 1934 for a new medium bomber capable of high speeds, long range, and satisfactory payload, reliability, and flight characteristics compared to contemporaries. Among the companies that chose to respond was Fiat, which completed its design for the competition during 1935. On 10 February 1936, the first prototype (serial number M.M.274) conducted its maiden flight. Flight testing proceeded at a rapid pace; during September 1936, initial deliveries of the type commenced to the Regia Aeronautica. During summer 1937, the BR.20 received its baptism of fire when a number were operated by the Aviazione Legionaria during the Spanish Civil War; the BR-20 came to form the backbone of Nationalist bombing operations, along with the German-built Heinkel He 111. It was also used in combat during the 1930s with relative success by the Japanese during the Second Sino-Japanese War. During 1939, a modified long-range BR.20 version (designated BR.20L) named Santo Francesco under the command of Maner Lualdi performed a highly publicised non-stop flight from Rome to Addis Ababa, Ethiopia •

DYK: Today marks the 74th anniversary of the beginning of the Nuremberg Trials — a series of military tribunals held after WWII famous for the prosecution of Nazi leadership for war crimes — and they hold a special connection to UW Law. Judge Walter B. Beals was a member of UW Law's very first graduating class of 1901. In 1946, he took a leave of absence from his position as Chief Justice of the Washington State Supreme Court to serve as presiding judge over the American military's criminal proceedings against 23 German physicians and administrators, 16 of whom were found guilty. As a result of Judge Beals' work, the UW Law's Gallagher Law Library was one of the recipients of the original mimeographed copies of the Nuremberg Trials proceedings, which today are held deep in the halls of the library in the special collections section.

Washington State says goodbye to Stan Jones, Tulalip Tribes leader and World War II hero. Jones was a veteran of the South Pacific who watched Japanese orphans scavenge trash cans for food in the aftermath of the atomic bomb. The children, lost and alone, stirred memories of his own childhood on the Tulalip Reservation. Legacy Washington was fortunate to document Stan Jones' story in "Washington Remembers WWII:" www.sos.wa.gov/legacy/washington-remembers/ . . . . .

Photos du superbe camps de reconstitution camps russe de Melun Villaroche lors du meeting aérien 2019. C'était un camps vraiment bien réalisé le petit plus: les barbelés. Beaucoup de travail et d'investissement et beaucoup de plaisir à voir sur place. Merci à vous tous qui réalisez des reconstitutions 😊👍🤗 🎊 J'en profite pour parler de la résistance en France pendant la deuxième guerre mondiale. Dès 1941 le parti communiste à constitué des groupes armés qui, sous le nom de L'OS Organisation Spéciale se livrent à des actions de résistance : distribution de tracts, sabotages d'usines et lignes électriques, déraillement de train où encore faire châtier les dénonciateur et les agents de l'ennemi. Le 15 mai 1941 la direction du parti communiste appelle à Paris la formation d'un front national de lutte pour l'indépendance de la France il est officiellement créé en juin. . Je vous invite à suivre @clementdaniere qui réalise de jolies photos de reconstitution. . . . . . . . .

Part of the exhibition examines artists who felt compelled to document their experiences in the camp. Bruce Ratner discusses the work of one Holocaust survivor and artist. . . [VID: VID: Paula Zahn interviews Bruce Ratner, chairman of the Museum of Jewish Heritage. . . Bruce Ratner: "There is an enormous amount of art that was done during the Holocaust by Jews. Whether it be when they were in the ghettos or whether it be when they were in the concentration camps or whether it be the death camps. In the case of one, Kantor, he was, he was also an artist. He was taken to Auschwitz and he wound up surviving and he did 150, 200 drawings while he was in Auschwitz. However, he wasn't able to take most of them out, but he had a photographic memory. So immediately after the war, he completely re-did every single one of those drawings that he could remember. And we have today 150 drawings of Kantor's that show us exactly what happened, from the crematoria, to people being beaten, to people being killed, and so on." . .

German soldier whit kar98k during second world war in Estern front . 🇺🇸The Karabiner 98 kurz (often abbreviated as K98k, K98 or Kar98k) was a revolving-sliding shutter rifle, chambered for the 7.92 × 57 mm Mauser projectile, developed and used by Nazi Germany during the Second World War. It was the last of a long series of military rifles produced by Mauser. Although semiautomatic and automatic rifles were available, the K98k remained in service throughout the war, and is still visible in the various conflicts thanks to the large amount of war remnants still practically intact. . . . . .🇮🇹Il Karabiner 98 kurz (spesso abbreviato in K98k, K98 o Kar98k) è stato un fucile a otturatore girevole-scorrevole, camerato per il proiettile 7,92 × 57 mm Mauser, sviluppato e impiegato dalla Germania nazista durante il secondo conflitto mondiale. Fu l'ultimo di una lunga serie di fucili militari prodotti dalla Mauser.

Olive Wetzel Dennis, the world’s first “Service Engineer,” was born on this day in 1885. During an era when few women even set foot on trains, let alone helped design them, Dennis spent most of her time riding the rails for the B&O, thinking of ways to improve the average traveler’s experience. Over her decades-long career, the “Lady Engineer,” as she was called, introduced scores of improvements to the company’s railroads—from footrests and reclining seats to special ventilators she designed herself.

You read to me and my siblings when we were little. You encouraged adventure and getting dirty. You and Grandma sacrificed to make sure your children and grandchildren would be tight knit with memories that included you in them. You drove to my soccer games, you guide me when I am lost. And even to this day you support and cheer me on in my endeavors. To the example of a true gentleman who found a partner in life and experienced the world with her.

Amon Goeth (1908-1946) foi um oficial da SS e comandante do campo de concentração de Plaszow, Polônia. Nascido em Viena, ingressou no Partido Nazista em 1932, em 1940 na SS. Posteriormente, foi transferido para Cracóvia, onde supervisionou a liquidação dos guetos e campos em Szebuie, Bochnia, Tarnow e Cracóvia. De fevereiro de 1943, a setembro de 1944, Goeth serviu como comandante no campo de concentração de Plaszow, como foi retratado no filme “A Lista de Schindler” de Spielberg. O nazista era conhecido pelo seu extremo sadismo, o totalitarismo do III Reich abriu as portas para que psicopatas colocassem toda sua insanidade em prática, Hitler não executou tudo sozinho. Goeth costumava atirar da sacada de sua casa nos judeus que estavam trabalhando no campo de concentração. Havia dois cães treinados por ele para matar prisioneiros, vários foram mortos de maneiras absurdas por esses cachorros. Amon chegou a matar um cozinheiro judeu porque a sopa estava muito quente. Após a Segunda Guerra Mundial, os americanos o capturaram e o entregaram aos poloneses, que o condenaram a morte por enforcamento, a corda arrebentou 2 vezes, até Amon morrer na terceira tentativa.

First aviation book I ever got back *coff*coff* years ago was “Sabre Jet Ace,” the story of America’s top (still) jet ace, Captain Joseph C. McConnell, Jr., by Charles Coombs. . It was fortuitous, I believe, that the dynamic cover painting of this book (by R. G. Smith? I have never been able to find out), and the wonderful, seemingly effortless, pen & ink illustrations inside by Rod Ruth sparked something inside which has never left, namely, “I wonder if I can do that ...” ✍️😎🎨 . Internet pic. I still have my copy, but it’s a bit worn(ish). 👍🏼

Luftwaffe symbol . .🇺🇸The Luftwaffe (literally: "air weapon") was the German military aviation, an integral part of the Wehrmacht during the Second World War. Involved in all theaters of war, it contributed, especially during the first years of the conflict, to the success of the "lightning war" tactic adopted by the German armed forces. Victorious in Poland and France, he suffered a first setback in the Battle of England by fighting against the British Royal Air Force, to then pay much of his attention to the eastern front, where during the Barbarossa operation he first conquered air superiority over the inexperienced Soviet aviation. The Luftwaffe also had paratrooper units (Fallschirmjäger) and other land formations under its control. . . . . .🇮🇹La Luftwaffe (letteralmente: "arma dell'aria", fu l'aviazione militare tedesca, parte integrante della Wehrmacht durante il secondo conflitto mondiale. Coinvolta in tutti i teatri di guerra, contribuì, soprattutto durante i primi anni del conflitto, alla buona riuscita della tattica della "guerra lampo" adottata dalle forze armate tedesche. Vittoriosa in Polonia e in Francia, subì una prima battuta d'arresto nella battaglia d'Inghilterra scontrandosi contro la Royal Air Force britannica, per poi rivolgere gran parte della sua attenzione al fronte orientale, dove durante l'operazione Barbarossa conquistò in un primo tempo la superiorità aerea sull'inesperta aviazione sovietica. La Luftwaffe ebbe sotto il proprio controllo anche le unità di paracadutisti (Fallschirmjäger) e altre formazioni terrestri. . . . . .
