Commanders and notable members of the Waffen SS (in order of Unit number) ****⚠️Non Political. Just historical facts ⚠️**** The 18th SS Volunteer Panzer Grenadier Division "Horst Wessel" was formed in 1944 around a cadre from the 1 SS Infantry Brigade and included mainly ethnic Germans (Volksdeutsche) from Hungary. The 1st battalion of about 1000 men was attached to SS Division Horst Wessel and sent to Galicia. It was used for "rear-security" duties until it was sent to the Eastern front, with the exception of one regiment that fought the Slovak National Uprising in August 1944. It later fought as a single unit in Hungary and later in Czechoslovakia where it was destroyed. The Division was named after SA member Horst Wessel, (pictured here in the bottom middle column) known for being the author of the lyrics to the Nazi party anthem, the Horst Wessel Song, and glorified by the Nazi regime as a martyr of the party's early years.

Commanders and notable members of the Waffen SS (in order of Unit number) ****⚠️Non Political. Just historical facts ⚠️**** 16th SS Panzergrenadier Division "Reichsführer SS" was a motorised formation in the Waffen SS during World War II. Formed in November 1943 when Volksdeutsche recruits were added to the Sturmbrigade Reichsführer SS, which was used as the cadre in the formation of the new division. A Kampfgruppe from the division fought at the Anzio beachhead, while the rest of the division took part in the occupation of Hungary. It fought in Italy as a division from May 1944, until being transferred to Hungary in February 1945. A Kampfgruppe of the 16th Training and Replacement Battalion was based in Arnhem and took part in Operation Market Garden. The division surrendered to British forces near Klagenfurt, Austria, at the end of the war. The division, during its time in Italy, committed a number of war crimes, and, together with the 1st Fallschirm-Panzer Division Hermann Göring, was dis-proportionally involved in massacres of the civilian population.One possible reason for the division's increased involvement in war crimes has been identified in the fact that a large number of its leadership originally came from the SS Totenkopfverbände. Pictures: Anti-clockwise from Top Left. Commanders with dates of service period within the Division. * SS-Obersturmbannführer Karl Gesele (February 1942 – September 1943) * SS-Gruppenführer Max Simon (3 October 1943 – 24 October 1944).

🔶NOT POLITICAL | ONLY HISTORY!🔶 — And yes I realize Hitlers eyes should not be blue — January 23rd, 1941 - On this day in World War Two history, Before Congress, Charles Lindbergh suggests the US negotiate a neutrality pact with Hitler. Before Pearl Harbor, the United States was predominantly neutral in mindset. Around 70% of the population desired to remain out of the conflict raging over both oceans and let things settle down on their own. To ensure that Hitler did not attack US owned property or land, Lindbergh desired a neutrality pact to be signed between the United States and Nazi Germany. By this point in time, the Germans had annexed Austria, taken Czechoslovakia, Poland, Denmark, Norway, the Netherlands, Luxembourg, and France, and in the coming months would conquer Yugoslavia and Greece in cooperation with other axis powers. Britain was under siege by German bombers, and thus, looking at the world as it stood in January of 1941, I’m not surprised there were many who called for no action to be taken against Germany. They were a military colossus, and at this point in time the United States did not have a very big military. Japan was a different story. Japanese aggression and expansion hit closer to home as the Philippines, Guam, and Wake Island, all US territories in the Pacific near Japan, were being threatened. The US placed embargoes on the Japanese Empire, but all this did was force them to conquer more and more land to make up for its losses. The United States attempted to negotiate with Japan, but the Japanese high command had already made their decision, and, well, we all know what that was. This picture is of Adolf Hitler, the man America was contemplating making a piece with. — #wwii #ww2 #worldwar2 #worldwarii #secondworldwar #germans #wehrmacht #bundeswehr #historyofwar #history #ww2history #warhistory #historybuff #historychannel #historylesson #charleslindbergh #historynerd #historynerds #historybuffs #history2 #historyinpictures #notpolitical #1940s #1941

Remember the helmet that I received in October? It was a personal gift by David Marshall of M Company, 334th Infantry Regiment of the 84th Infantry Division. Today I took the helmet to visit the grave of his best friend, Benedict Schmitt "Smitty", who was Killed in Action on November 19th 1944 near the town of Prümmern, Germany. David had to walk over his body and never really had the time to process and say goodbye. He eventually visited the Margraten War Cemetery after the war, but it was different. Today I took the helmet to Smitty's grave to take some photographs for David. Seeing the crosses out in the snow was a stunning view! at Netherlands American Cemetery

On 23 January 1940, the former South African Prime Minister J. B. M. Hertzog introduces a motion in the House of Assembly, saying that ‘The time has arrived that the war with Germany should be ended and that peace be restored.’ The debate that follows was about the character of South Africa’s contribution to the British Commonwealth’s war effort. The phrasing of his plea suing for peace was quite ambiguous. Was he advocating a general peace? Or did he want South Africa to make a separate deal with the Germans? . Hertzog was unconvinced that the South African declaration of war against Germany in September 1939 was grounded on valid reasons. In fact, he Hertzog was such a prominent adversary to the Treaty of Versailles that he could very well understand that Germany wanted to restore the authority and the territorial unity of their country, ‘so scandalously dislocated and broken up’ by the 1919 treaty. . He placed the responsibility for the outbreak of a second world war with the Allies, who according to Hertzog refused to discuss peace terms with Hitler. He thought that the Allied were out to destroy Germany or once again force ‘unacceptable conditions’ on the Germans ‘with the knee on his chest and the sword at his throat, as had happened at Versailles.’ . Many of his opponents and even his supporters knew better. They were careful to emphasise that support for Hertzogs motion did not imply pro-nazi sympathies. Still, the motion appealed to Afrikaner Nationalists, who didn’t care about what they believe was ‘the Empire’s War’, not South Africa’s. . Edit: Re-upload because of error in the photo. .

We were honored to be joined by two children of men who served at Anzio: - Fred Muntzner, son of Frederick Muntzner of Brooklyn, New York, who was killed at Anzio on April 18, 1944, just three weeks before his 22nd birthday and just three weeks after his son Fred turned one; and - JoAnne Prasnick, daughter of Arthur G. Prasnick, a sergeant in the 3rd Infantry Division who served at Anzio. We were also joined by @usarmy Chaplain Lieutenant Colonel Todd Wolf, Commander Richard McHugh of the @royalnavy and Assistant Naval Attaché for @ukinusa , and Major Jeff Pederson of the @Canadian forces from @connect2canada We thank all those who participated and helped us to honor the 186,000 Allies who served and in remembrance of the 7,000 Allies killed and the 36,000 wounded or missing during the Battle of Anzio. #WWII #WW2 #BattleofAnzio #ThankYou #Service #Sacrifice #NeverForgotten #NeverForget #GreatestGeneration

---Night Witches--- Or as translated into German, “Nachthexen”, was the nickname German forces gave to the daring female pilots that belonged to the Soviet Air Forces 588th Night Bomber Regiment. This particular bomber regiment, consisted of 3 units made up entirely of female aviators, being the first Soviet combat unit of WWII to allow women to serve in their ranks. The unit was made up of young fearless women who felt the need to serve their beloved Mother Russia in a more effective way than simply taking care of the wounded or handing out rations. These women wanted to kill Germans and that they did. The units flew missions from 1942 all the way up to the end of the war. By the end of the war, the Night Witches had flown over 23,000 missions, dropped roughly 30,000 tons of ordinance, and lost 32/40 of its original members. One particularly popular attack method used by the Night Witches was one called harassment bombings. These attacks occurred almost always at night and were used to spread fear and paranoia across German lines. The pilots flew slow wooden framed bi-planes with a payload of only 2 bombs each. But these rather rudimentary aircrafts were used by design. Upon descent, pilots would cut their engines, making the aircraft virtually silent, swoop down on their targets at incredibly low altitudes, and drop their payloads without ever being discovered. Their stealthiness allowed them to repeat attacks a handful of times within a night without coming under any enemy fire. This tactic was not necessarily the most devastating physically, but it was said to have taken an immense toll on German troops psychologically. This is where the term “Night Witches” was coined. Another plus side to their rudimentary bi-planes is that they flew at such a slow speed that most German fighters stalled out trying to keep up with them, making them incredibly hard to combat even during the broad daylight.

Commanders and notable members of the Waffen SS (in order of Unit number) ****⚠️Non Political. Just historical facts ⚠️**** The 15th & 19th Waffen Grenadier Division of the SS (1st Latvian) & (2nd Latvian) The 15th Waffen SS (1st Latvian) was formed in Feb 1943, and its sister unit, the 19th Waffen SS (2nd Latvian) was formed in January 1944. Together they constituted the Latvian Legion. The 15th Waffen SS lost much of its manpower fighting in districts surrounding Leningrad (Ostrov, Novosokolniki and Novgorod Oblast). In Sept 1944 the division fought on the Pomeranian Wall defences and then retreated through Pomerania and Germany to Berlin. Part of the division with a total of 824 men, surrendered on 27 April 1945 to the advancing Americans at Güterglück near the Elbe River. Other elements of the Division, approx 4,500 men, at south of Schwerin on 2 May 1945. The 19th Waffen SS was surrounded in the Courland Pocket at the end of the war where it surrendered to the Red Army. The Latvian Legion, being an organization of conscripts, was exempt from the opinion rendered at Nuremberg trials, consistent with findings by post-war Allied authorities. No Latvian ever been accused of any war crime while being a member of the Latvian Legion. Commanders with dates of service period within the Division.

@p40americandream

WWII Wednesday with this old girl.. 👌🇺🇸 . . . American Dream is based on the remains of a P-40N from WWII, flown by a combat veteran, 1st Lt. Joel Dixon Thorvaldson. 👨‍✈️ . . . Thorvaldson flew over New Guinea with the 8th Fighter Squadron’s Blacksheep in the 49th Fighter Group, 5th Air Force. The P-40, which Thorvaldson nicknamed Punkins (pictured above), was in honor of his wife. It was also named “Mr.Five by Five” and numbered ’55’ on the vertical stabilizer 🎃 . . . This airplane had 2 confirmed kills (a Japanese Zero and a Betty Bomber) to her name, possibly a third, and was herself shot down by a Japanese A6M Zero in combat over Tsili Tsili, near Finschafen, New Guinea on September 13th, 1943. The P-40 received hits to its engine, and caught fire. 🔥🔥 . . . Thorvaldson belly-landed his fighter in a field of grass, surviving the incident, but he was deep in unfriendly territory. He shot a flare into the cockpit to torch the damaged airplane and found his way to a river. A circling Allied aircraft saw the pilot by the river, and dropped him an inflatable life raft. 💯 . . . He floated down the river and was picked up five days later by Australian forces. Thorvaldson survived the war and stayed in the Air Force, making a career of it. He passed away in Virginia in 2014. 👌😎 . . . The TP-40 you see today as “American Dream” was salvaged in 2005, beautifully restored in Australia and brought to the US in 2014. She remained “FivexFive” until Warbird Adventures acquired her in 2018, where she was renamed “American Dream,” however she still bares the #55 on her tail. . . . #wwii #wwiihistory #p40americandream #p40warhawk #p40 #warhawk #aviation #aviationlovers #aviationhistory #japanese #zero #history #avgeek #warbird #warbirds #warplane #fighter #pilot #wwiipilot #airplane #airplanes #fly #warbirds #warbird #warstory #flying #warbirdadventures #americandream #kissimmee #florida @flywarbird at Warbird Adventures Inc

"Voi che vivete sicuri nelle vostre tiepide case, voi che trovate tornando a sera il cibo caldo e visi amici: considerate se questo è un uomo che lavora nel fango che non conosce pace che lotta per mezzo pane che muore per un sì o per un no. Considerate se questa è una donna, senza capelli e senza nome senza più forza di ricordare vuoti gli occhi e freddo il grembo come una rana d’inverno. Meditate che questo è stato: vi comando queste parole. Scolpitele nel vostro cuore stando in casa andando per via, coricandovi alzandovi; ripetetele ai vostri figli. O vi si sfaccia la casa, la malattia vi impedisca, i vostri nati torcano il viso da voi."

A painting stolen by the Nazis over 80 years ago was auctioned at Christie’s. The painting, Portrait of John Frederick I, by #Lucas Cranch the elder. The painting was once part of Fritz Gutmann’s renowned art collection in the pre-war Netherlands. Fritz was forced to sell a part of his collection in #WWII by a #nazi #artdealer. Some of the artworks from his looted collection were brought specifically to Hitler and Goering. Fritz and his #wife Louise were murdered in the #concentration #camps of Theresienstadt and #Auschwitz. Missing for nearly 80 years before its recent rediscovery in America, Christie’s have facilitated the return of this important work to the Gutmann family. The painting was estimated to be between $1-2M before the auction in April last year, it sold for $7.7M! We are celebrating this success and working hard to make sure more looted artworks will return to their original owners.

My one of the favourite WW2 photograph of all time . Credit - @ww2_glimpses This picture shows humanity between the gruesome war It's a original colour photo . A striking color photograph of a German soldier beside the grave of an unknown English lieutenant Buried somewhere in Africa . The German inscription translated as "Here lies an unknown English lieutenant, who was killed in aerial combat June 14, 1941". This probably on the Western Desert of North Africa. (Initially, Germans buried that killed English lieutenant with all military Honor. ) #worldwar #worldwartwo #worldwar2 #ww2 #wwII #military #history #militaryhistory #dead #germans #nazis # #waffenss #burial #armored #american #soldiers #diesoldaten #historyporn #bomb #dday #historybuff # #historystuff # #humanhistory #africacorps #desertrats #1941 #royalairforce

Then&Now 1944-2013. Batterie Crisbecq, Saint-Marcouf. === Picture after taking and before the explosion. === Due to an explosion of the ammunition stored here it came to destruction a few days after the conquest of the battery. It also killed several American soldiers. Inside are still the remains of several dead German soldiers who were collected here after the fighting and filed. A salvage was not possible. === #wwii #ww2 #worldwar2 #lestweforget #normandie #dday #ddaylandings #overlord #militaryhistory #combathistory #ww2daily #ww2dailyhistory #war #krieg #history #historylover #historytour #routesofhistory #historicplaces #militaria #militar #instagood #battle #wanderlust #normandy #linkofhistory #easycompany #thenandnow #soldier #nowandthen #instagood . == Go follow @dday_history at Batterie Crisbecq
