1941 yılında Guderian'ın komuta ettiği Alman orduları Moskova önlerine dayanmıştır.Moskova başkent prestiji dışında bir öneme daha sahiptir o da Lenin'in mumyasının Moskova'da tutuluyor olmasıdır.Savaşlar ve topraklar kaybedilebilir ancak bir fikrin mimarının mumyasına ulaşılması özellikle Sovyet Rusya'sı için ağır bir mağlubiyetten daha trajedik sonuçlara sebep olabilir.Eğer Almanlar Moskova'yı ele geçirirse bu bir felaket olurdu ama Lenin'in naaşı ele geçirilecek olursa bu Sovyetler için son derece küçük düşürücü bir olay olurdu.(Aynı sebeple Hitler naaşını yaktırmıştır).Gelişmeler üzerine Stalin,Lenin'in mumyasının büyük bir gizlilik içinde başkentin 1000 km doğusunda bulunan Tyumen'e götürülmesi için emir verir.Savaş boyunca Tyumen'de tutulan naaş,her gün bilim adamları tarafından bakımı yapılarak titiz bir şekilde saklanmıştır. #ww2facts

📖rus. Видео на тему Польско-Венгерского вторжения в Чехословакию осенью 1938 года. Русские комментарии • По результатам Мюнхенского соглашения, государство Польша в октябре 1938 года поддержало гитлеровскую Германию в территориальных претензиях к Чехословакии и аннексировало часть чешских и словацких земель в числе которых были местности Тешинская Силезия, Орава и Спиш. До заключения пакта Молотова - Риббентропа оставалось чуть меньше года. Вместе с Германией и Польшей на Чехословакию напала и союзная нацистам Венгрия _______________________________________________________ 📖eng. There is an aspect of the Munich pact, however, that has been downplayed ever since World War II. The simple fact is that it wasn't only Germany that dismembered Czechoslovakia. The surrounding nations, seeing a defenseless Czechoslovakia "up for grabs," moved in like vultures to take their shares. Germany didn't really care what happened to other areas of the country, at least at first, and cultivated relations with future war ally Hungary by agreeing in the first "Vienna Award" to their taking over areas adjacent to its own territory. Poland also moved in, and since Germany didn't want to provoke Poland until it was good and ready, it turned a blind eye. There was enough left of Czechoslovakia to go around. All this left Czechoslovakia as a rump state. Its troops fought the Hungarian (and perhaps Polish) invaders, but resistance was scattered and in any event they were overwhelmed and received no assistance from England, France or anyone else. Indeed, the Czech people were largely either apathetic or actively supporting the invaders, at least the minorities who were ethnic Germans, Hungarians and Poles. Eventually, Germany simply moved in and took over what was left of Czechoslovakia after Poland and Hungary were finished gobbling up their shares, without much fuss. Czechoslovakia knew when it was beaten _______________________________________________________ #ww2 #wwII #wwii #worldwar #worldwar2 #worldwartwo #worldwarhistory #polskie #secondworldwar #2ndworldwar #ww2history #warsaw #War #poland #nazigermany #ww2daily #ww2dailyhistory #warszawa #polska #History #czech #ww2facts

« 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 A6M was designated as the Mitsubishi Navy Type 0 carrier fighter (零式艦上戦闘機 rei-shiki-kanjō-sentōki), or the Mitsubishi A6M Rei-sen. The A6M was usually referred to by its pilots as the "Reisen" (zero fighter), "0" being the last digit of the imperial year 2600 (1940) when it entered service with the Imperial Navy. The official Allied reporting name was "Zeke", although the use of the name "Zero" was later adopted by the Allies as well. »

Crazy times

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

« Beautiful photos of women during World War II. Women were needed to fill many traditionally male jobs and roles during the war and various advertisements were used to encourage women to take on these jobs and roles. Women joined the nurse corps and the armed forces so that more men could be sent into combat. Most women did not get to join and fight in the war because they "are better at home" which is not true at all. But the Soviets thought differently and they let women fight in the war. They had many female snipers as they were thought to have better patience and eyesight which makes them better snipers. »

« A group of Curtiss P-40 Warhawks escorted a pair of Consolidated B-24D Liberators on a flight near the Aleutian islands, Alaska, 1944. The Curtiss P-40 Warhawk is an American single-engined, single-seat, all-metal fighter and ground-attack aircraft that first flew in 1938. The P-40 design was a modification of the previous Curtiss P-36 Hawk which reduced development time and enabled a rapid entry into production and operational service. The Warhawk was used by most Allied powers during World War II, and remained in frontline service until the end of the war. It was the third most-produced American fighter, after the P-51 and P-47; by November 1944, when production of the P-40 ceased, 13,738 had been built,[4] all at Curtiss-Wright Corporation's main production facilities at Buffalo, New York. »
