Hitler'in Ceza Taburlarıyla tanışın.2.Dünya Savaşı sırasında 50.000'e yakın Wehrmacht mensubu askerin de yer aldığı bu taburlar ne iş yapardı peki? Strafbattalion denilen bu taburlar genelde katiller,tecavüzcüler,dolandırıcılar ve çete üyelerinden oluşuyordu.Yürüyen hapishaneler olarak tabir edebileceğimiz bu taburların askerlerine genelde en zor görevler veriliyordu.Kimi zaman taburlar bir mayın tarlasına sürülüyor ve mayın tarlasının temizlenmesinde kullanılıyor,kimi zaman da şok birlikleri olarak görev yapıp cephe gerisinde çeşitli eylemler düzenliyorlardı.Diğer ceza taburlarının aksine Waffen SS'e bağlı 36.Piyade Tümeni mahkumlara ceza vermek ya da onları ıslah etmek için kurulmamıştı.Bu birlik Alman topraklarındaki en azılı suçlulardan oluşturulmuş.Bu tümenin amacı işgal edilen doğu topraklarındaki halkı korkutmak ve onları dehşete düşürerek sindirmek olmuştur.1940 yılında Himmler'in emri ile oluşturulan bu birliğin komutanı çocuk tacizinden hüküm giymiş azılı bir suçlu olan Oskar Dirlewanger'dı.Bu birlik 30.000 sivili vahşi yöntemlerle katletmiştir ve bu 30.000 sadece kayıt tutulan kısmıdır. #ww2facts

📖eng. In her new book When the Soldiers Came, Professor Miriam Gebhardt (pictured) suggests the Americans raped 190,000 women between 1945 and 1955 • One of the enduring narratives of World War II is that during the invasion of the Third Reich, British and American troops largely behaved well, and it was the soldiers of the Soviet Union's Red Army who raped hundreds of thousands of German females, aged from eight to 80. However, a new book published in Germany makes the shocking and disturbing claim that the Americans raped a staggering 190,000 women in the decade from the invasion until West Germany became a sovereign country in 1955.
In When The Soldiers Came, historian Professor Miriam Gebhardt also suggests the British raped 45,000 German women, and the French a further 50,000 _______________________________________________________ 📖rus. Книга немецкого профессора Мириам Гебхардт «Когда пришли солдаты» вызвала шок в Европе. Немецкий профессор развенчал миф о «зверствах» Красной Армии: Немок массово насиловали англосакcы. Одна из стойких и излюбленных картин на "Западе", изображающих Вторую мировую войну, заключается в следующем: освобождая Германию от нацистов, британские и американские войска вели себя вполне пристойно, а вот солдаты Красной Армии изнасиловали сотни тысяч немок в возрасте от восьми до восьмидесяти лет. Автор приводит такие данные: Американцы подвергли сексуальному насилию 190 тысяч жительниц Германии, британцы — 45 тысяч, французы примерно столько же. О Красной Армии Гебхардт практически не пишет, но считает цифру в 2 миллиона «многократно завышенной» _______________________________________________________ #ww2 #wwii #worldwartwo #secondworldwar #ww2history #investigation #ww2facts #allied #2ndworldwar #historic #history #ww2history #military #warcrimes #war #historical #germany #berlin #berliners #wehrmacht

Milkweed doesn't just help the insects! Did you know during WWII soldiers used milkweed in their life preserver stuffing? It's lighter than cork, and very fluffy! Native Americans also used it in baby "diapers" to help soak up baby waste. #warnerparknaturecenter #milkweed #ww2facts

Leo Major’s story is so preposterous that Hollywood still hasn’t made a movie about it. A French-Canadian who saw action in the Normandy landings, Leo began his military career by capturing an armored vehicle full of communications equipment, providing the Allies with invaluable intelligence. He then single-handedly took out a group of elite Nazi SS troops, but lost his left eye after a dying enemy managed to ignite a phosphorus grenade. When a doctor tried to send him home, Leo reportedly replied that he only needed one eye to aim. He later broke several bones in his back, but again refused to be evacuated, returning to the battlefield to participate in the liberation of Holland.

The Bell P-39 Airacobra was one of the principal American fighter aircraft in service when the United States entered World War II. The P-39 was used by the Soviet Air Force, which scored the highest number of individual kills attributed to any U.S. fighter type in the Eastern European theatre. Other major users of the type included the Free French, the Royal Air Force, the United States Army Air Forces, and the Italian Co-Belligerent Air Force.
Top speed: 389mph
Number built: 9,588
Unit cost: $50,666 in 1944
Designed by Bell Aircraft, it had an innovative layout, with the engine installed in the center fuselage, behind the pilot, and driving a tractor propeller via a long shaft. It was also the first fighter fitted with a tricycle undercarriage.[6] Although its mid-engine placement was innovative, the P-39 design was handicapped by the absence of an efficient turbo-supercharger, preventing it from performing high-altitude work. As such it was rejected by the RAF for use over western Europe but adopted by the USSR where most air combat took place at medium and lower altitudes.

« Two soldiers of the Royal Military Police with Anna, a four-year-old Austrian girl with whose family the men were billeted, in the Klagenfurt area of occupied Austria, May 1945. The Royal Military Police (RMP) is the corps of the British Army responsible for the policing of service personnel, and for providing a military police presence both in the UK and while service personnel are deployed overseas on operations and exercises. Members of the RMP are often known as 'Redcaps' because of the scarlet covers on their peaked caps, or scarlet coloured berets. »

« A Royal Air Force Lockheed Hudson Mk VI (AE626) of the Middle East Communications Flight flying over the Egyptian pyramids, 1942. The Lockheed Hudson was an American-built light bomber and coastal reconnaissance aircraft built initially for the Royal Air Force shortly before the outbreak of the Second World War and primarily operated by the RAF thereafter. The Hudson was the first significant aircraft construction contract for the Lockheed Aircraft Corporation—the initial RAF order for 200 Hudsons far surpassed any previous order the company had received. The Hudson served throughout the war, mainly with Coastal Command but also in transport and training roles as well as delivering agents into occupied France. They were also used extensively with the Royal Canadian Air Force's anti-submarine squadrons and by the Royal Australian Air Force. »

« The Mitsubishi A6M "Zero" is a long-range fighter aircraft, manufactured by Mitsubishi Aircraft Company, a part of Mitsubishi Heavy Industries, and operated by the Imperial Japanese Navy from 1940 to 1945.

The official Allied reporting name was "Zeke", although the use of the name "Zero" was later adopted by the Allies as well. »
