.
(FACT) did you know in the battle of North Africa, It was so hot over there that you could’ve cooked your meal on a tank.

So thankful for the experience I was given in February, the Holocaust education trust gave me the opportunity to visit Auschwitz 1 and 2. This is a Jew identification star which Dutch Jews had to sew onto their clothing before the final solution was put into operation there are different examples for different countries. #ww2 #wwii #worldwartwo #worldwarii #worldwar2 #wewillrememberthem #history #militaryhistory #shermantank #tank #germany #M4a1 #USarmy #US #USA #armoureddivison #usmc #usaaf #american #america #GIs #GI #gis #gi #theamericangi #theamericangicollection #dday #france1945 #dday #1944

🇫🇷La rue Clemenceau d'avant guerre donnant sur l'Hôtel de Ville de Dunkerque.

L'Hôtel de Ville de Dunkerque est construit sur les bases de l'ancien hôtel datant de 1644 et démoli en 1896.
Le nouvel édifice est réalisé par l'architecte lillois, Louis Cordonnier, qui réalisera plus tard la Chambre de commerce de Lille.
La construction commence en 1897 et s'achève en 1901.
L'Hôtel de Ville, dans un style très néo flamand est inauguré par le président Français de l'époque, Émile Loubet en compagnie du Tsar de Russie, Nicolas II.

Cet imposant bâtiment sera durement touché lors d'un bombardement aérien datant du 27 mai 1940.
Il sera restauré par le fils de Louis Cordonnier et est à nouveau inauguré en 1955 par le président René Coty. 🇬🇧The street Clemenceau before war overlooking the Town Hall of Dunkirk.

The Dunkerque Town Hall is built on the foundations of the old hotel dating from 1644 and demolished in 1896.
The new building is designed by architect Louis Cordonnier, who will later make the Lille Chamber of Commerce.
Construction begins in 1897 and ends in 1901.
The City Hall, in a very neo-Flemish style is inaugurated by the then French President, Emile Loubet in the company of the Tsar of Russia, Nicolas II.

This imposing building will be affected during an aerial bombardment of May 27, 1940.
It will be restored by the son of Louis Cordonnier and is again inaugurated in 1955 by President Rene Coty

FieldMarshall Erwin Rommel inspecting the beach defenses at Omaha beach, Normandy, France 1944.
_______________________________
The waters and beach were heavily mined, and had many anti tank obstacles, and there were 13 strongpoints, these were called Widerstandsnester (“resistance nests”). Numerous other fighting positions dotted the area, supported by an extensive trench system. The defending forces consisted of three battalions of the veteran 352nd Infantry Division. Their weapons were fixed to cover the beach with grazing enfilade fire as well as plunging fire from the cliffs, Omaha was a killing zone.
.
(FACT) did you know during the battle of Caporetto in 1917 during The First World War, when Erwin Rommel was a junior Officer, he was commanding 126+ men, he captured over 9,000 Italian soldiers in just over two days, he lost just 5 men.

The Iron Mike monument near the bridge at La Fière, France. It is built to commemmorate the units of the 82nd Airborne that fought a fierce battle here during the first few days in Normandy. Company G of the 401st GIR had to cross a completely exposed causeway that was surrounded by flooded fields. The only way to the town ahead was across that causeway. At the end the Germans were waiting for them

Chi-Ha Type 97 at the Yushukan WW2 Museum.
Video Here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-z64e2QZCos

This Chi-Ha was knocked out during the battle of Saipan and served with the 9th Tank Regiment.
It has multiple hits on the right side, and was probably used for target practice.
The tank was salvaged out of a canal together with another Chi-Ha, this one was send to Yasukuni Shrine War Museum and the other Chi-Ha was send to Wakajishi Shrine.

It was on display outside the museum for a longtime suffering from the elements, but was restored sometime in the 90's and is now on display in the museum. ■ Store https://teespring.com/stores/panzerpicture-2
