- December 1943, Outskirts of Leningrad - 
A railroad captured by German troops is being used as a defensive position. The railroad is not being used anymore because the enemies are too close and the shelling destroyed most of the road.

@1943thebattleofkursk loving the sparse detail around the train tracks. Looks like how a railway would be. Nice job!

Crotch-sprocket. 
The NSU Motorenwerken Kettenkrad(Sdkfz 2) was produced from 1939-1948 (post-war for agricultural use) and I believe it to be the original ATV. Kettenkräden were used as air-portable artillery tractors, troop transport, and aircraft tugs for the Me 262 and reportedly the Arado 234. Wildly enough, these whippy little bastards could go nearly 50mph.

@jeffery.justice7 @collanmccoy I got a text that said WW2 enactment at the airport, but it’s pretty much over. But I went anyway and found where the dudes were camping and took pictures lol

@fernwehvisuals 😀📸👍✌️

“...a ‘punitive’ German commando came into the village to kill the Jews, under the responsibility of the head of the local Gestapo, a certain Hummel.  They [the Jews] were gathered in the main street in front of Hummel’s house and then arranged in columns of four across.  The Jewish children and the handicapped were torn from their families and placed in horse-drawn carts that followed the columns.  They were taken toward a great pit just outside the village.  The German gunmen were placed above the pit.  The Jews went down into the pit, twenty by twenty.  After the volley of shots, we three Ukrainian girls who, in our bare feet, had to pack down the bodies of the Jews and throw a fine layer of sand on top of them so that the other Jews could lie down.  Many Jews were wounded....We had trouble walking on them.  The shootings were so quick that we didn’t have time to catch our breath between shootings!  It lasted from 10 o’clock in the morning to 4 in the afternoon.  The Germans took turns to eat but not us.  As for the children; they were killed at the end of the main execution, after the adults.  They threw them in the air.  They threw them any old way...”

@justin.driver.94 Horrific to read, such an awful moment in human history

@jacksonthompson6358 @paul.50_159 i do agree with you granted the US marines VS the japenese was a nightmare to fight in, in the PBS documentary "the war" it highlights a marine division that actually cut dead japense soldiers heads off then staked them to there tanks when going into battle again and Roosevelt's wife was quoted saying "those men need to be reciviliazed before being be brought home" and theres another case where a US para marine or carlson raider member actually sent a legit japenese soldiers skull to his GF back state side he was writing to as a gift or something crazy. As for why those soldiers fought (on the axis side) its debateable wether it was a question of time before Stalin would invade Europe to expand the Soviet Union and MANY foreign volunteers fought for there home nations in a german Uniform the SS for example and then also the Heer but there reason was to fight communism plus many people suffered horribly by the Soviets personally and wanted revenge such as the baltic states (Estonian, latvitaian, and croation) and as the treatment of POW's the axis powers (and Soviets) used them as slave labor and other such things or just straight murder them many men march day and night to gulags and if you couldn't keep up well we all can figure what happened (just look at the Bataan death March) and plus there was complaints by the american public about german POWs state side where they were getting the best of the best possible, during that documentary the person being interviewed was asked why the german POW's were better off than war rationed civilians and he said "so our boys would be treated the same" so it kinda implies possibly that if we didn't care about the American pows then the german POWs woulda have had possibly the same horrible fate. But facts are facts and that didn't happen. I can't speak for every german or Frenchman or Finnish or Swedish or Ukrainian and even British or any other nationality that fought under germany (inlcuding Indians due to there second class status as citizens to the British) but the vast majority of Germanys loses was in Russia and the memoirs i've read, many wanted to end communism.

The StuG-Abt. 244 was equiped with 8 StuG III F by September 1942. 
The command StuG was able to destroy 9 Tanks within 20 Minutes during a Attack against the Red October Factory in late September 1942.

독일은 독-소 불가침 조약 (Nonaggression Pact) 을 깨고 소련을 공격해 역사상 가장 잔혹한 전쟁을 시작했다. 소련은 제 2차 세계 대전기간 병사 13,800,000명이 전사하는 그 어떤 나라보다 많은 희생을 치루었고 민간인도 군사작전, 전쟁범죄, 기아, 질병 등으로  약 9,000,000명이 목숨을 잃었다

Messerschmitt BF 109 fighter. Designed by Willy Messerschmitt in 1935, the aircraft was the principal German fighter/interceptor throughout the war, supplemented by FW 190 from 1942 onwards. The Nazis' top ace, Erich Hartman, downed 352 planes on the Eastern front piloting the 109. Most widely produced fighter of WWII with nearly 35000 made. This example is a Spanish licensed version made by Hispano Aviation and called the Bouchon. The Spaniards continued making the plane until 1954. For the post war production, they chose the same engine that powered the 109's adversaries- the Mustang and Spitfire- the Rolls Royce Merlin V 12 (original German ac relied upon Daimler Benz 605 V 12) Due to their post war production,  frequently seen in movies such as 2017 Dunkirk #messerschmitt #bf109 #hispanoaviación #museum #warbirds #ericksonaviation #ericksonaviatiinmuseum #madras #ww2 #fighters #interceptors #planes #merlin #rollsroyce #daimlerbenz #erichhartmann #easternfront #aces #licensing #dunkirk #nazis #thirdreich #outstandingdesign #monocoque #flying #collection

The Waffen-SS during WW2 were some of the most elite, and most destructive troops during the war. It all started with Hitler’s personal bodyguard (the soon to be Leibstandarte SS Adolf Hitler[LSSAH]) which by 1934 was formed into a full Regiment of “elite” soldiers. As the invasion of Poland was due for the Germans forces, the Deutschland SS regiment (formed around the same time as the LSSAH) and the LSSAH joined the 17th Infantry Division tasked with protecting the flank of the Southern German pincer that would drive into Poland. They performed exceptionally, and both Regiments would soon become divisions. In the coming years, many more Waffen-SS divisions would be created, including the elite “Totenkopf” and “Das Reich” divisions. The Germans also soon brought in volunteers to form new divisions, such as the ever popular 20th Waffen-SS 1st Estonian division, or even a French division (more of a brigade really). By the end of it all, there had been a total of 38 divisions created, a good few of them having some of the finest fighting soldiers the world has ever seen. Although, the troops of many of these divisions could be less than peaceful when dealing with POWs or “enemy civilians”, and many of these divisions were well known for it. An example of this is the Malmedy massacre committed by the LSSAH during the Ardennes Offensive, where 80 American troops were executed after having been captured. This was the reputation these troops had earned, and would die with.

Pistolet-pulemyot Sudayeva 1943 aka PPS-43. It’s mean, ugly, and nasty. The way God meant com-bloc smg’s to be made. • • • #pps #pps43 #sbr #7 .62x25 #tokarev #wwii #easternfront #guns #firearms #pewpew #pewpewlife #gunsmith #guntech #browne

@true_arms_custom_gun_works The thing that fascinates me most about a lot of com-bloc firearms, well really a majority of older military weapons is the simplicity behind them. I mean, look at a majority of bolt rifles from back in the day. Hardly any moving components lol. It’s amazing.

@gandalf.socrates I love these things. They just work so well.

Ova slika predstavlja Nemački MG-42, jednu od naj prepoznatljivijih mašinki iz Drugog Svetskog Rata.

MG-42 je predstavljen 1942, zato i sufiks ,,42, i trebala je da u potpunosti zameni stari MG-34.

MG-34 je bilo dosta adekvatno oružje, ali su nemci imali dosta razloga zašto su trebali da je zamene.

Prvo, proizvodnja je bila  kompleksna, zato je bila skuplja i trebalo je više vremena da se napravi.

MG-42 se oslobodila drvenih delova koje je imala 34 i zamenila ih je sa lako dostupnim metalom.

Ako pogledate dve mašinke deo po deo MG-42 je bila loše obradjena za razliku od lepo odradjene MG-34.

Druga velika razlika je bila povratni mehanizam, što joj je dozvolilo da ispaljuje i do 1.500 metaka u minuti za razliku od 800-900 metaka u minuti kod MG-34.

Ovo novo oružje je dobilo nadimak ,,Hitlerova motorna testera jer je bilo teško čuti zasebni zvuk metka tokom paljbe.

Jedan primer da je MG-42 bio smrtonosan je bio tokom Dana D na plaži Omaha gde su bili postavljeni da pucaju unakrsno u vatri koja nije dopuštala prolazak vojnika.

Ovo oružje je bilo najefikasnije oružje tokom celog Drugog Svetskog Rata i najsmrtonosnije.

@jared_ellis16 Helmet is bent

The closed military fortress of Breslau (today Wrocław Poland) endured a brutal 80 day siege that lasted from February- May 1945, leaving the city a smoldering ruin, and some 90,000 casualties.

These Soviet infantrymen fight in the ruined city with a PTRS-41, a 7 foot long, 46 pound, five round, semi automatic anti-tank rifle. The PTRS wasn’t as reliable as the simpler single shot PTRD; it was prone to jamming when dirty and the powerful 14.5mm cartridges tended to rapidly foul the gas port needed to cycle the weapon. However, when functional, Soviet anti-tank teams could fire many more rounds per minute, devastating fortified positions and eliminating lighter armored vehicles. 
They were particularly effective against German Panzer IIIs and IVs, which only had 30mms of armor at their thickest flanks. At 300 meters the PTRS could penetrate 40mms of armor. A dozen anti-tank teams could quickly swarm lighter German tanks, hammer away and disabled them. This was very effective while firing from concealed elevated positions throughout ruined cities, like Breslau..

@dochawkeye The PTRS was discontinued because it was complicated and expensive to manufacture, at least more than the Russians were willing to put up with.

Why Germany couldn't win the war on the Eastern Front

I see alot of arguments about the war on the Eastern Front, so-called what if scenarios. Here are some of the arguments I see often and some counter-arguments for them.

Germany should've attack straight to Moscow:
Soviet Union wasn't like France, you don't necessarily win by conquering its capital and killing its leaders. Soviet Union's citizens would most likely fight to bitter end just like the Germans did in reality. Also German blitzkrieg tactics would stretch supply and maintenance routes too thin in vast Soviet territory, making them easy to exploit. Germany couldn't conquer Stalingrad and Leningrad, how would it conquer Moscow?

Germany should've built more Wunderwaffe:
The German army and tactics were relying heavily on combined arms and fast movements. The so-called super war machines like Maus, heavy railway guns, P.1000 Ratte would require too much work, material and manpower. Huge vehicles would have alot of restrictions due to their size and weight, they would be easy targets for bombers etc. Also, Germany was short on oil in 1940's and vehicles need it to work.

Simplifying their armored vehicles:
Once again, the oil shortage. Germany's facilities and factories were bombed by Allied forces which complicated the process.

Just attack Caucasus' oilfields:
Soviet Union knew what Germany was after in the South, the oilfields. The vast Soviet territory would put the German lines on too large area to hold with Heer's manpower. The Soviets would've destroyed the oil facilities before the German could reach them.

If Germany developed a nuclear weapon:
Most of the scientists working for Germany were expelled in 1930's for being Jewish. And Hitler saw the nuclear science as Jewish science, so the German nukes would've been unlikely. And an aggressive country like Germany would've been the first country to be nuked if it had nuclear weapons in its possession.

These are just few of the arguments I see on forums and discussions. And there's more, there's just no more space in this post

@mr_tdinler @forgotten_battles the submarine idea was just a general idea. The most brilliant way of conquering cities are the „Einkesseln“. Just surround the city, destroy the cities Defence forces from behind the line and just wait to dry the city out. They should do it to every city before Moscow. Stalingrad should be invaded by allied forces. But it was all nonsense. Why do you start to attack another empire, when you didn’t even take Britain. The Germans lost the ground under the feet and thought way to be powerful. Never overrestimate yourself.

@mr_tdinler @mr_tdinler the „einkesseln“ tactic came from the airforce officer Kesselring.

@jantzforgottensoldier https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=G8sEB88eaSE https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCv4duOLQqY-H08hHEXu4HTg AUSTRALIAN STORY: My father was a veteran of the second world war. He fought in the battle for Berlin and survived the terror of the Halbe Pocket. Taken prisoner by the Russians, tortured, starved and released, he escaped the iron curtain and made his way to Australia under contract as a Displaced Person. The 'war' that he endured was an eternal search for a belonging, for an identity, for a soul, for those were the things that he had lost, and those were the things that he WOULD fight for. In founding a new family, the death of my mother dealt a grave blow. Burdened with a newborn, a one and two year old, he was resolute in reclaiming his existence as a person of worth on this earth. He died in January 2017, a tortured soul, a forgotten soldier. In life he had been displaced but found a new life, a new identity, and a new home in Australia. In death his soul remains displaced, for no government will afford him his redemption through a recognition of his right to legitimacy. Ransomed into service for the Waffen SS, a Nazi, he forfeited his soul in exchange for the lives of his Volksdeutsch family. My father was born in Poland, fought for Germany and belongs in Australia. He will forever remain in my heart, a champion of sacrifice, a testament to the fabric of the human spirit, and yet an enigma to those who are unable to understand.

This hear is a very special artefact. A portrait of a young Matthew Connell, of the 13th battalion. Matthew was one of the many ANZACs who lost their lives at Gallipoli. He died of Pneumonia 4 days into combat, he was taken from the shores to a hospital ship, where in his journey back to Alexandria, he passed away. He is now buried at sea. Rest In Peace young soldier, you’re part of our legacy, and we will never forget your sacrifice. 🥀

Protection cap from an old @siemens electric meter transfomed by a soldier into a food canteen by adding a copper wire as a handle. Bullet hole on one side, black paint... Nice and in the same time sad to see the ingenious ideas the soldiers had in those times of need.

Found it last week dug on the side of some trenches disputed a couple of times between the Romanian and the Russian soldiers in 1944 during the Sonja and Katja Operations. Hope I'll find the exact type of meter it was in some era catalogues or something...

Last month we covered some of the devastation & bloodshed of the 1939 German invasion, including the relentless bombardment of a defiant Warsaw. Yet this was merely the opening chapter of a much longer horror story, as John Toland explains in his excellent biography of Hitler…
.
‘While Stalin was digesting the three Baltic States & eastern Poland, Hitler was transforming the rest of that nation into a massive killing ground. He had already ordered Jews from the Reich massed in specific Polish cities having good rail connections. Object: “final solution, which will take some time,” as Heydrich explained to SS commanders on Sept 21. He was talking of the extermination of the Jews, already an open secret among many high-ranking party officials.
.
‘These grisly preparations were augmented by a “house cleaning” of Polish intelligentsia, clergy & nobility… By mid-autumn 3,500 intelligentsia (whom Hitler considered “carriers of Polish nationalism”) were liquidated. “It is only in this manner,” he explained, “that we can acquire the vital territory which we need”… This terror was accompanied by the ruthless expulsion of 1,200,000 ordinary Poles from their ancestral homes… In the ensuing bitter months more Poles lost their lives in the resettlement from exposure to zero weather than those on the execution list.’
.
Another Hitler biographer, Ian Kershaw, tells a similar story:
.
‘Hitler set the tone for the escalating barbarism, approved of it, & sanctioned it. But his own actions provide an inadequate explanation of such escalation. The accelerated disintegration of any semblance of collective government, the undermining of legality by an ever-encroaching & ever-expanding police executive, & the power-ambitions of an increasingly autonomous SS leadership all played important parts. These processes had developed between 1933 & 1939 in the Reich itself. They were now, once the occupation of Poland opened up new vistas, to acquire a new momentum altogether. The planners & organizers, theoreticians of domination, & technocrats of power in the SS leadership saw Poland as an experimental playground. They were granted a tabula rasa to undertake more or less what they wanted.’

“...I went forwards towards the dugout that they were shooting from. Bullets were flying above my head. And so I see Russians in front of me, maybe five metres away from me. So I called out to them to surrender, and they did not do that, so I threw in a hand grenade, and now you can imagine what it looked like in there. One of them came out and he had blood coming from his mouth, from his nose and from his ears. And he pulled his machine gun, the Russian machine gun with a drum at the front, he pulls it into the air and I say to myself: ‘Well, you ain’t gonna get me.’ And I aim my gun at him and all of a sudden I see little stars. I was shot and that was it. I saw little stars in front of my eyes. I looked to my right, and I ran my left hand over my face and a jet of blood comes out and my teeth flew out of my mouth. It was half past ten in the morning, a Saturday morning. Now it’s all over, I thought. And so my colleague saw it and he went, ‘Ah, ah!’ He crushed the head of the Russian who had shot me. He crushed his head despite the steel helmet he was wearing, right into the middle of his face. That made such a cracking noise, I can still hear it today. It’s brutal, but what can you do? And then I saw my second lieutenant, Hennes, he was maybe 20 or 30 metres away from me. So I gave this sign with my right hand, and then I waited again. Who’s shooting, where are they shooting, are there any bullets around me? Was it a sniper, was it one of our bullets? And then I went to the second lieutenant, into his hole, and he said, ‘Come on, where are your first aid packets?’ I could not say anything. And he took the two packets out and bandaged me. My steel helmet had gone anyway. So he bandaged me and all of a sudden he said, ‘Careful, a Russian.’ And he aimed his machine gun at him and then his steel helmet flies through the air. He got shot in his head and he had that leather strap underneath and that was just blown away and it flew through the air and then I looked at him and I saw how he was shot in his head and how his head split. That’s the first time I saw a brain...”

The German soldiers with with winter outfits and white camo.According to their outfits,this photo was most probably taken in the Battle of Moscow.

On Tuesday, 7 October, the first snow fell and quickly melted, turning roads and open areas into muddy quagmires, a phenomenon known as rasputitsa in Russia. German armored groups were greatly slowed, allowing Soviet forces to fall back and regroup.

Soviet forces were able to counterattack in some cases. For example, the 4th Panzer Division fell into an ambush set by Dmitri Leliushenko's hastily formed 1st Guards Special Rifle Corps, including Mikhail Katukov's 4th Tank Brigade, near the city of Mtsensk. Newly built T-34 tanks were concealed in the woods as German armor rolled past them; as a scratch teamof Soviet infantry contained their advance, Soviet armor attacked from both flanks and savaged the German Panzer IV tanks.For the Wehrmacht, the shock of this defeat was so great that a special investigation was ordered.Guderian and his troops discovered, to their dismay, that the Soviet T-34s were almost impervious to German tank guns.

Other counterattacks further slowed the German offensive. The 2nd Army, which was operating to the north of Guderian's forces with the aim of encircling the Bryansk Front, had come under strong Red Army pressure assisted by air support.

According to German assessments of the initial Soviet defeat, 673,000 soldiers had been captured by the Wehrmacht in both the Vyazma and Bryansk pockets,although recent research suggests a lower—but still enormous—figure of 514,000 prisoners, reducing Soviet strength by 41%.Personnel losses of 499,001 (permanent as well as temporary) were calculated by the Soviet command.

This picture shows Finnish troops on the Eastern Front operating an M1937 during the German invasion.
During the initial German invasion of the USSR from June-December of 1941, the Germans had only been outfitted with summer uniforms due to the fact that Hitler believed the campaign would be over by the end of August at the latest. 
Hitler, after observing the Red Army blunders during the Winter War with Finland in 1939-1940, thought that the USSR was merely a rotten door that needed to be kicked in. Overconfident after immense victories in Poland, Scandinavia, the west, and in the Balkans, Germany went to war with the Soviet Union.
While the Germans experienced immense success in the opening months, capturing millions of soviet troops, thousands of tanks, and gaining air support very quickly, things soon turned sour in the fall and winter.
With the delay of Army Group Center in order to assist Army Group South, by the time the Center got back on track towards Moscow, the heavy muds had set in, and the German blitzkrieg was immensely hindered. To follow this up, one of the most fiercest Russian winters then moved in, crippling the Germans, many of whom still had largely summer apparel. Their guns stopped working, morale dropped, frostbite ravaged the troops, and hypothermia ran rampant in the German camps. The battle against the Red Army became a battle against the Russian Winter, of which the Red Army was more or less used to.
The Soviets were able to halt the German advance on their capital city, Leningrad still held out, and Stalingrad had not been reached yet. The Soviets were still in bad shape though, and in Case Blue the following year, they were equally close to catastrophe than in 1941.
The Germans were more prepared for the Winter of 1942, having more heavily warm uniforms, scarves, and mittens.
Still, when tens of thousands of men are trapped in a city (Stalingrad), the cold will seep in any way possible.

@sibtourguide @dmitry.dobrynin yes. They were stopped by the Red Army, not by winter and mud

@dmitry.dobrynin @semperfidel69 I believe the true reason behind this misconception is the western historical environment flooded with revanchist interpretations. People generally believe information they reach in their language, while something totally new to them sounds uncomfortable. Without adequate access to historical documents, literature, and publications from the other side due to language barriers (and that's the issue to be addressed by the Russian historians and history enthusiasts) it will take quite long to break the ice.

@armin.alom25 @guille_glb Capitalism has never killed anyone, why don't you ask the people who lived under a socialist regime if its good, oh wait you can't cause they're dead. You deny the killing of millions of innocent people because you think it's not true
