A photographer uses his own backdrop to mask Poland's World War II ruins while shooting a portrait in Warsaw in November of 1946.

In 1939, the Luftwaffe opened the German attack on Poland with operation Wasserkante, an air attack on Warsaw on 1 September. This attack by four bomber groups was of limited effectiveness due to low-lying cloud cover and stout Polish resistance by the PZL P.11 fighters of the Pursuit Brigade, which shot down 16 German aircraft for the loss of 10 of their own. However, heavy losses in Polish fighter aircraft meant that by 6 September the air defense of Warsaw was in the hands of the 40 mm and 75 mm anti-aircraft guns of the Warsaw Defense Command.

As the German Army approached Warsaw on 8 September 1939, 140 Junkers Ju-87 Stukas attacked the portions of the city on the east bank of the Vistula River and other bombers bombed the Polish Army positions in the western suburbs. On 13 September Luftwaffe level and dive bombers caused widespread fires. Further resistance was followed by propaganda leaflet drops.

Finally, starting at 0800 on 25 September, Luftwaffe bombers under the command of Major Wolfram Freiherr von Richthofen conducted the largest air raid ever seen by that time, dropping 560 tons of high explosive bombs and 72 tons of incendiary bombs, in coordination with heavy artillery shelling by Army units. The center of Warsaw was badly damaged. Approximately 1,150 sorties were flown by a wide variety of aircraft, including obsolescent Junkers Ju-52/3m bombers, which dropped 13 percent of the incendiary bombs dropped on the day. Only two Ju-52 bombers were lost.

Amazing: 3rd Jäger at Verdun. Two of them wearing the steel helmet. Next to that the first face covering gasmask of rubber (gummimaske) and one a Dräger tuben machine with oxygen.

British troops dig in to fight back the German advance. After almost four years of trench warfare this new type of warfare must have been a shock. #uk #military #museum #war #ww1 #ww2 #book #bookworm #travel #explore #landscape #outdoors #airforce #british #library #reading #navy #tank #guns #plane #photo #art #memorial #sky #warmemorial #army #history #infantry #greatwar

This looks like a heavy book but considering the number of Great War Memoirs I like to read I think it’s an important one. This book examines the memoirs, how they are written and what they tell us. #uk #military #museum #war #ww1 #ww2 #book #bookworm #travel #explore #landscape #outdoors #airforce #british #library #reading #navy #tank #guns #plane #photo #art #memorial #sky #warmemorial #army #history #infantry #greatwar

In March 1918 the Germans came as near as they ever did of winning the Great War. However, they missed their chance and expended irreplaceable resources in doing so. In a few months the allies were on the offensive and the war was won in a few months. This book tells that story. #uk #military #museum #war #ww1 #ww2 #book #bookworm #travel #explore #landscape #outdoors #airforce #british #library #reading #navy #tank #guns #plane #photo #art #memorial #sky #warmemorial #army #history #infantry #greatwar

‘IMSHI!’ I’m currently deciphering the text on the back of this Great War postcard. During the war postcards such as this were used by soldiers to record their first and lasting impressions of life in Egypt - an experience which left an indelible mark on all who visited. #egypt #greatwar #ww1 #soldiers #soldier #soldiering #soldieringinegypt #middleeast #postcard #earlytraveler #earlytravel #scribe

As we celebrate #LawrenHarrisWeek explore how both Lawren and his brother Howard (both born in Brantford) enlisted in the #GreatWar. Howard was killed in action in 1918 (although not listed on Brant County War Memorial) and this had a significant impact on Lawren for the rest of his life. #LestWeForget

Years later than I probably should have I’ve discovered the work of the artist Paul Nash. I think they’re stunning. #Ypres #salient #Flanders #WW1 #FWW #GreatWar
