Knocking on Germany's front door. Crossing the Rhine. Making it across the Rhine was not an easy task, visualized by this picture showing Americans of the 89th Infantry Division under heavy fire while being transported across the Rhine River in a DUKW of the 1st Engineer Brigade. March 1945. (The DUKW, or commonly referred as a a duck, was an amphibious vehicle) ----------------------------------------------------------

Here is a photo of Japanese pilot Kenichiro Oonuki during #WW2. Oonuki was asked if he wanted to become a Kamikaze and fly his aircraft into an Allied warship. The target Kenichiro Oonuki was to fly towards was an Allied fleet off the Japanese island of Okinawa on April 5th, 1945. His mission was simple: to smash his fighter plane, laden with high explosives, into an Allied warship. He would blow himself into a million pieces, and also, he was told, become a kind of god. Oonuki would become one of the infamous warriors of the Second World War – a Kamikaze. These Japanese suicide pilots were called “madmen” by the Allied servicemen who faced them. In war, the belief that one’s foe is insane unites everyone around a common goal. But the Kamikaze weren’t mad at all. A study of Japanese history reveals that, paradoxically, the only “inscrutable” Japanese were probably the tiny number who – when asked – didn’t volunteer to become Kamikazes. In the autumn of 1944, a senior Japanese Air Force officer visited Oonuki’s training base, seeking “volunteers” for a “special mission”. He made it clear that anyone who volunteered had no hope of surviving. Oonuki and his comrades were told to think it over and then, the next morning, give one of three responses – “No”, “Yes,” or “Yes, I volunteer with all my heart”. The immediate reaction was predictable. “We were taken aback,” said Oonuki, “I felt it was not the type of mission I would willingly apply for”. But, as the night wore on, they thought about what might happen if they said “No”. They might be accused of cowardice and be ostracised; their relatives shunned. Apart from a brief period at the end of the 19th century and start of the 20th, Japan had been one of the most culturally insular countries in the world. The government that had come to power in the 1930s had called for a return to the “traditional values” that existed before contact with the west. So in 1944, for anyone to be excluded from a cultural group they had been told for years was acceptable was a terrible humiliation. Then Oonuki and his friends realised those who didn’t come forward could be “sent to the forefront of the most severe.. CONTINUED⬇️⬇️

This picture depicts Yuri Gagarin, the first man in space, posing for a picture in front of the french Eiffel Tower on the Palais de Chaillot before attending a conference on aeronautics in Paris, 27 September 1963. The photographer is unknown.

Two very battle weary German soldiers with the 1,000 yard state whilst under intense shelling near Kharkov, 1943. As you can clearly see they are in a trench which was an extremely common defensive feature on the Eastern Front. The Germans used them extensevily especially during their massive retreats from 1943 to 1945. Their trench systems were like any other but not as reinforced and usually hastily and quickly dug. One of the most synananmous features of the German trenches were a dugout which was like a bunker where all the troops lived, ate, and slept. They usually didn't spend much time above ground since it was bitterly cold or they were being shelled. The only time they would come above ground is to repel an enemy attack and many times they failed and had to retreat, unable to bury their dead or identify them. In the dugout it was usually very small, fit maybe 10 people, and it was just an all around uncomfortable place to fight in. Since the trenches were usually hastily built they commonly collapsed burying men alive. Someone on my street had a husband who fought on the Eastern Front with the Germans and actually survived! He was buried by a Soviet shell fire and it took hours for him to be rescued but luckily he found a pocket of air. For the rest of his life he would have nightmares about that event and never forgot it. I may be going to talk with her soon so if you'd like to hear more please tell me in the comments! Colorized by me and couple months ago.

Here is a quick photo of my EK2 to keep you guys occupied while I vacation. I picked this up a few months ago and absolutely love it!
The shine on it is truly breathtaking!
I will be home on the 25th, but will try to post photos of my trip as I visit sites such as the USS Midway!

Today was certainly an adventure.
I ventured to New Orleans with these two, and we went to the National World War II Museum. It was awesome! There was so much to see and learn. Also, it was cool to go with somebody from Europe who had a different perspective on World War II than Americans do. He was also very handy to have around when it came to translating the German words we found.
It was a lot of fun!! #fun #museum #worldwar2 #ww2 #ww2museum #veterans #america #neworleans #louisiana #adventure #history #historic #perspective #european #europe #cool #funfriday
