An exhausted Rommel in a photo said to have been taken shortly before El Alamein, possibly end of June/early July 1942.

The now Generalfeldmarschall was at the gates of Egypt, but like himself, his forces were hanging by a thread. Egypt was, and would remain beyond his grasp.

Despite the best efforts of his devoted orderly, Günther, during the North African campaign Rommel often showed a complete disregard for his health, repeatedly driving himself into a state of near exhaustion. Due to a poor diet he suffered from several ailments, especially of persistent stomach problems due to the long periods he went without food or drink.
According to Günther, Rommel would leave for an entire day in the desert with just a sandwich or a can of sardines and a piece of bread. He wouldn’t drink much either, taking with him only a small canteen filled with cold tea with lemon, a canteen which was often almost full by day’s end.

One of the things the Afrika Korps could not brag about was its diet, deemed too heavy for the desert and lacking fruits and vegetables, it was responsible for a large number of cases of jaundice amongst the troops.

British supply convoy in Iran with a Soviet BA-10M armored vehicle escort, September 1941.
After Operation Barbarossa, Britain and the USSR became formal allies. They saw the newly opened Trans-Iranian Railway as an attractive route to transport supplies from the Persian Gulf to the Soviet Union. The Anglo-Soviet invasion of neutral Iran codenamed Operation Countenance, lasted from August 25 to September 17 of 1941. The purpose of the invasion was to secure the oilfields at Abadan to ensure a supply route to the USSR in the struggle against Nazi Germany on the Eastern Front. The invasion was rapid and conducted with ease. The Allies managed to move over 5 million tons of war materiel across Iran to the Soviet Union.

Soviet commanders of the 29th tank brigade of the Red Army standing next to Soviet armored vehicle BA-20 in Brest-Litovsk city during their mission to liberate the territories of Western Belarus and Ukraine from Polish occupation. In the foreground, the battalion Commissar Vladimir Yulianovich Borovitskiy. September, 20 1939. These very territories — Western Ukraine and Western Belarus — were annexed by Poland during the Polish-Soviet War (1919 — 1921). The war was unilaterally unleashed by Warsaw against the USSR, torn and devastated by the civil war • The city of Brest is a historic site of many cultures. It was the location of important historical events such as the Union of Brest and Treaty of Brest-Litovsk. The Brest Fortress was recognized by the Soviet Union as the Hero Fortress in honor of the defense of Brest Fortress in June 1941 --------------------------------------------------- Фотохроника освобождения территорий западной Беларуси Красной Армией в 1939 году. На первом фото: Командиры 29-й танковой бригады Красной армии у бронеавтомобиля БА-20 в Брест-Литовске. На переднем плане батальонный комиссар Владимир Юлианович Боровицкий. На втором фото: он же общается с немецкими офицерами. 20.09.1939 г. • Краткая история города: Во время советско-польской войны в феврале 1919 года Брест-Литовск уже находился под контролем Польши. 2 августа 1920 года, в результате контрнаступления, его заняли части Красной армии. А 18 августа, после поражения Красной армии под Варшавой город снова был занят польскими соединениями. По результатам Рижского договора отошёл к Польше. С этого момента город известен как Брест-над-Бугом, центр Полесского воеводства. 14 сентября 1939 года в ходе вторжения в Польшу немецкий 19-й моторизованный корпус атаковал город и занял его; утром 17 сентября немцами была занята и крепость. 22 сентября Брест передан 29-й танковой бригаде Красной армии во время импровизированного парада, и вошёл в состав СССР как центр новообразованной Брестской области БССР в соответствии с Договором о ненападении между Германией и Советским Союзом. По реке Западный Буг пролегла советско-германская демаркационная линия

Soldiers of the U.S. Seventh Army move past a roadblock cleared by engineers in a forest in the Alsace region of France. The Seventh was stretched thin at the time of Nordwind because it had to extend its northern flank to cover ground previously held by the Third Army, which counterattacked German forces during the Battle of the Bulge.

Finnish 2nd Lt. Olavi Alakulppi inspecting a Soviet SMG in the Tolvantojärvi area on the 25th of September 1941.
.
"He won a gold medal in the 4 x 10 km cross-country relay at the 1939 FIS Nordic World Ski Championships in Zakopane.
.
Alakulppi served in the Finnish Army during the Winter and Continuation Wars. In 1942 he was awarded the Mannerheim Cross.
.
In 1945, in order to evade prosecution for his involvement in the Weapons Cache Case, he skied to Sweden and arranged for his wife Eevi, their son Vesa, and him to travel to the United States, where he joined the United States Army. Vesa Juhani Alakulppi eventually followed his father into the army and was killed in action during the Vietnam War.
.
Alakulppi retired from the US Army in 1968 as a lieutenant-colonel. He died in 1990 in Petersburg, Virginia, and is buried in the Arlington National Cemetery.
.
While Alakulppi served as a company commander in West Germany in the 1950s, his personal chauffeur was Elvis Presley, who was carrying out his military service."

INCROCIATORE PESANTE GORIZIA
La classe Zara fu una classe di incrociatori pesanti della Regia Marina, impiegata durante la seconda guerra mondiale; la classe era composta da quattro navi, Zara, Fiume, Pola e Gorizia.
Costruito nei Cantieri navali dei Fratelli Orlando si Livorno venne varato nel 1931. Era armato con:
8 cannoni da 203/53 mm.
12 cannoni da 100/47 mm
84 mitragliere 40/39 mm
8 mitragliere Breda da 13,2 mm
Partecipò alle principali battaglie del Mediterraneo e a missioni di scorta indiretta di convogli.
Il 10 aprile 1943 mentre si trovava nellla base sarda de La Maddalena fi attaccata da 84 bombardieri. Ebbe il tempo di reagire con l'artiglieria contraerea, ma servì a poco. L'incrociatore fu attaccato da 36 aerei e fu presto colpito e messo fuori uso. La nave fu ridotta ad un relitto galleggiante ed ebbe 63 morti (4 ufficiali, 6 sottufficiali, 53 marinai) e 97 feriti. Ciononostante si riuscì a ripararla per consentirle di trasferirsi a La Spezia. Le riparazioni non poterono procedere per mancanza di materiale e così, all'armistizio, la nave era ancora inutilizzabile e non poté prendere il mare. La sera del 9 settembre 1943 fu abbandonata dall'equipaggio e catturata dai tedeschi, che la abbandonarono dopo aver asportato tutto ciò che poteva essere usato.Nel 1945 fu trovato semiaffondato nel porto ligure e non si poté far altro che demolirlo.

After 1917 the Konstantin palace fell into decay: it was handed over to a child labor commune, then to a secondary school. For a period during World War II, the Germans occupied Strelna and had a naval base there. Some Decima Flottiglia MAS men and attack boats were brought from Italy and based at Strelna. Only the palace walls were left standing; all interior decoration was gone. No effective restoration had been undertaken until 2001. I witnessed Strelna (now a Presidential Residency) in its decay state.
