The Dutch NSB was founded in Utrecht in 1931 during a period when several nationalist, fascist and national socialist parties were founded. The founders were Anton Mussert, who became the party's leader, and Cornelis van Geelkerken. The party based its program on Italian fascism and German national socialism, however unlike the latter before 1936 the party was not anti-semitic and even had Jewish members. โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€” Lisence: Public Domain. โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€” Just for history, non-political. โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€” #waffenss #ss #easternfront #wehrmacht #wehrmachtwaffenss #militairhistory #militar #soldaat #soldier #soldate #krieg #europa #europe #hitler #nazi #nonpolitical

โœด๏ธWhich submachine gun is better: the MP40 or the M1A1 Thompson?โœด๏ธ โ€” What's my favorite WW2 Gun? THE MP40 of course!! This picture shows an MP40 after being dug up years after the war. ๐Ÿ”ถ โ€” The MP40, or known officially as the Maschinpistole 40, was a German made submachine gun used from 1940-1945 by the German Military and other axis powers during WW2. ๐Ÿ”ถ โ€” Shooting 500-550 rounds a minute and with a MAX range of 200 meters, the MP40 was very effective at eliminating enemy infantry at close-mid range, especially close range, however.๐Ÿ”ถ โ€” The gun was also reasonably lightweight with a distinctive look to it that I know and LOVE. ๐Ÿ”ถ โ€” With 1.1 million of these guns made from 1940-1945, it is easily one of the most popular guns of the war. Although the Germans, in 1943, moved to replace the Kar98's and MP40's with newer and more superior StG Assault Rifles, the MP40 remains a legend in the eyes of many.๐Ÿ”ถ โ€” #mp40 #machinepistol #pistol #machinegun #submachinegun #9mmparabellumbullet #9mm #warrelic #war #relic #dugup #magazine #easternfrontww2 #westernfront #easternfront #germanyww2 #germanarmy #heer #wehrmacht #secondworldwar #wwii #ww2 #millions #stg44 #stg #kar98k #kar98 #boltaction #assaultrifle

October 21st 1941. the day Nazis killed almost 3000 innocent Serbs in Kragujevac as a response to guerilla fighters killing occupators.

โ€œ...a โ€˜punitiveโ€™ 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 Hummelโ€™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 didnโ€™t have time to catch our breath between shootings! It lasted from 10 oโ€™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...โ€ - Ukrainian Witness Ternivka Massacre 27 May 1942

-| No Mercy | September 1944 | Western Poland |- - This photo depicts Waffen-SS soldiers standing over a captured Soviet tank driver, where he is about to be executed, even though already being taken prisoner and posing no threat to his captors. - - The Waffen-SS during WW2 were some of the most elite, and most destructive troops during the war. It all started with Hitlerโ€™s personal bodyguard (the soon to be Leibstandarte SS Adolf Hitler[LSSAH]) which by 1934 was formed into a full Regiment of โ€œeliteโ€ 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 โ€œTotenkopfโ€ and โ€œDas Reichโ€ 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 โ€œenemy civiliansโ€, 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.

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 oruลพje, ali su nemci imali dosta razloga zaลกto su trebali da je zamene. Prvo, proizvodnja je bila kompleksna, zato je bila skuplja i trebalo je viลกe 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 maลกinke deo po deo MG-42 je bila loลกe obradjena za razliku od lepo odradjene MG-34. Druga velika razlika je bila povratni mehanizam, ลกto 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 oruลพje je dobilo nadimak ,,Hitlerova motorna testera" jer je bilo teลกko ฤuti zasebni zvuk metka tokom paljbe. Jedan primer da je MG-42 bio smrtonosan je bio tokom Dana D na plaลพi Omaha gde su bili postavljeni da pucaju unakrsno u vatri koja nije dopuลกtala prolazak vojnika. Ovo oruลพje je bilo najefikasnije oruลพje tokom celog Drugog Svetskog Rata i najsmrtonosnije. โž–โž–โž–โž–โž–โž–โž–โž–โž–โž–โž–โž–โž–โž–โž–โž–โž– @ww2historia @ratne_slike @drugi_svjetski_rat @volunteers_ww2 โž–โž–โž–โž–โž–โž–โž–โž–โž–โž–โž–โž–โž–โž–โž–โž–โž– #ww2history #wwll #mg42 #machinegun #weapon #germany๐Ÿ‡ฉ๐Ÿ‡ช #germanengineering #keephistoryalive #historic #education #educateyourself #military #westernfront #easternfront #gun #guns #photography #picture

The closed military fortress of Breslau (today Wrocล‚aw 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 wasnโ€™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..

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 #ww2 #wwii #germany #nazigermany #easternfront #ussr #cccp #sovietunion #war #history #warhistory #combat

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, youโ€™re part of our legacy, and we will never forget your sacrifice. ๐Ÿฅ€ __________________________ Follow my mates for more awesome militaria! _____________________________ @rmsmilitaria @ward_militaria @mw_militaria @world_war_2_militaria @ww2.germancollectibles @ww2decorations @zegermancollector @kwaringss @the_kreigsberichter_41 @worldwar2_collector @_a.s.m.e.r @falcon.militaria @wehrmachtcollector @times_of_war @busters_militaria @german_medals #easternfront #heer #wehrmacht #wwii #collector #winter #summer #camo #medal #blitzkrieg #war #military #army #secondworldwar #history #eagle #heer #eastern #ww2 #wwii #allies #axis #wwi #ww1 #firstworldwar

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 Hitlerโ€ฆ . โ€˜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: โ€œfinal solution, which will take some time,โ€ 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. . โ€˜These grisly preparations were augmented by a โ€œhouse cleaningโ€ of Polish intelligentsia, clergy & nobilityโ€ฆ By mid-autumn 3,500 intelligentsia (whom Hitler considered โ€œcarriers of Polish nationalismโ€) were liquidated. โ€œIt is only in this manner,โ€ he explained, โ€œthat we can acquire the vital territory which we needโ€โ€ฆ This terror was accompanied by the ruthless expulsion of 1,200,000 ordinary Poles from their ancestral homesโ€ฆ In the ensuing bitter months more Poles lost their lives in the resettlement from exposure to zero weather than those on the execution list.โ€™ . Another Hitler biographer, Ian Kershaw, tells a similar story: . โ€˜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.โ€™

โ€œ...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: โ€˜Well, you ainโ€™t gonna get me.โ€™ 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 itโ€™s all over, I thought. And so my colleague saw it and he went, โ€˜Ah, ah!โ€™ 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. Itโ€™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. Whoโ€™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, โ€˜Come on, where are your first aid packets?โ€™ 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, โ€˜Careful, a Russian.โ€™ 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. Thatโ€™s the first time I saw a brain...โ€ - Helmut Walz 305th Infantry Division Stalingrad - Red October Plant 17 October 1942

RGD-33 grenade fragmentation sleeve with plenty of original paint on it. When fitted over the grenade the sleeve improved the kill radius by producing a number of diamond-shaped, heavier fragments. With the jacket installed the grenade was said to be in "defensive" mode.
