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) ----------------------------------------------------------

The 503rd (attached to XI. Armeekorps), took part in Operation Zitadelle, an offensive operation meant to destroy the Kursk salient. Four days before the start of "Zitadelle," the abteilung reported that 42 of their 45 Tiger tanks were operational.
The Tigers of the 503rd performed well in the offensive, losing three Tigers during Zitadelle and five more during the subsequent withdrawal. From July 5 to August 17, the unit claimed the destruction of 385 tanks, 4 assault guns and 265 anti-tank guns.

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.

Alexandra "Sima" Andreevna Dneprovskaya (Александра Андреевнa Днепровская) born in 1916, russian voluntary nurse, sapper and scout of the 325th separate army in the army at July 28, 1941.
Voluntary nurse of reconnaissance platoon 325 OAIB (отдельный аэродромный инженерный батальон- separate aerodrome engineering battalion) Dneprovskaya, was with a group of scouts on 16.8.1942 in the district of Yam-Izhora selflessly and bravely She attacked the dugout (землянкa), where were the German gunners. Invisibly approaching the dugout, she first burst into it and threw a grenade. Three fascists were killed on the spot. The fourth was killed in the trench when he tried to escape.They took the trophies - a machine gun and valuable documents, that was their main task. When the group returned to the unit she rendered medical help to seven wounded soldiers and commanders.
During the battles of Krasnogvardeysk on August 25-27, 1941, Dneprovskaya, under enemy fire, picked up 24 wounded soldiers (2 of them with weapons). During the fighting for the crossing near the river Tosno on November 3-6, 1941, Dniprovskaya carried 30 fighters and commanders from the battlefield, 20 of them with their weapons. By the order of the 55th Army from 5.09.42 she was awarded a "Medal for courage". In this pic she has two "Granata obr RGD" hand grenades. These are considered offensive grenades as they do not have a fragmentation sleeve around the grenade body. Grenades with such a sleeve would be considered defensive grenades. (RGD-33.) Note also the "amoeba" pattern camouflage smock commonly worn by reconnaissance troops. #womeninwar #ladiesinthewar #worldwar2 #wwii #ww2 #secondworldwar #worldwarii #worldwartwo #thegreatwar #history #historiansunion #military #wartime #warpic #womeninarmy #womenhistory #historypassion #historytime #война #ВОВ #redarmy #ВтораяМироваявойна #Руссия #ussr #СоветскийСоюз #sovietunion #краснаяармия #РККА #родина #russianarmy

Another sassy little clip from play #2 in my trilogy "Women You Thought You Knew", a Swing Era drama titled "Silk Stockings and a Bible", from the run of the entire trilogy in March 2017. Besides writing and directing I also have a supporting role in this play as an Atlantic City barmaid. Thanks to the wonderful cast, crew and The Puffin Foundation for making it possible! #trilogy #silkstockingsandabible #womenyouthoughtyouknew #thespians #playwright #director #producer #culturalactivism #sociallyconscious #chorusgirls #clubharlem #cottonclub #savoy #swingera #harlem #atlanticcity #500club #stageguerrilla #stageballs #thepuffinfoundation #wwii #1940s #sailor #navy

From the album of Salvatore Milone, one of the best parts of my personal collection- here you see a ship unloading its cargo, probably to be transported onto the railway wagons you see in front. #WWII #ww2 #worldwarii #worldwar2 #secondworldwar #blackandwhitephoto #militaria #history #militaryhistory #war #docks #port #dockyard #train #steamboat #cargoship

Lyudmila opened for me one of the most terrible pages of this war. The defence of Sevastopol lasted 250 days in the end the city surrendered. Neither military fighters nor civilians were evacuated. General Petrov only two more submarines left Sevastopol. The first one carried the archive of the Party, classified documents and valuables. The second one - 80 commanding officers. Admiral Oktyabrsky was evacuated by plane. It was the miracle that Lyudmila survived. A miracle granded by the man who never had the chance to propose to her. But he gave her his evacuation pass instead, that was her pass for a future life. ~ Eleanor Roosevelt ~

#OTD 1942: Canadians took part in the Dieppe Raid. It was a disaster. More than 900 Canadian soldiers were killed, and thousands more were wounded and taken prisoner, including Paul Dumaine. He painted this scene while he was in a prisoner of war camp.

Took a break from #WWII to visit the Heeresgeschichtliches Museum (Museum of Military History) to see the #WWI exhibit.

They have the car that Archduke Franz Ferdinand and his wife Duchess Sophia were assassinated in from a visit to Sarajevo in 1914. This assassination was the event that spiraled into the First World War.

A M A Z I N G. It really was. I feel that most Americans, and maybe the world, often overlook the Great War because of the magnitude of World War II. But it was so incredible, and I'm going to do more research on WWI as soon as I'm home.

🏵️ This year marks the 75th anniversary of the Dieppe Raid. It was launched on August 19, 1942, and proved to be the bloodiest single day for Canada’s military in the entire Second World War. --- 🏵️ http://www.veterans.gc.ca/eng/remembrance/history/second-world-war/dieppe-raid #operationrutter #operationjubilee #canada #canadaremembers #canada150 #dieppe #dieppe75 #WWII #WW2 #WorldWarII #war #history #CanadianHistory #2ndCanadianInfantryDivision #France #FrenchHistory #Germany #GermanHistory #Nazi #military #militaryhistory
