A pretty simple pic showing a French Built Somua S-35 medium tank and a German soldier running. The Germans used about 250 of these tanks after the French surrender.

Anyone care to take a guess at where and when this pic was taken?

Without doing an image search that is.

:P

Ask me about the legendary desert Bigfoot. A.K.A the Sandsquatch and his more elusive cousin, the Albino White Sands Dunefoot.

Time for another guess.

This image appears to be one thing but is actually another. Name these soldiers and what they are doing and I'll see if I can't get you half a Bart Buck.

Guess away!

I think I had a plastic soldier in that exact pose as a kid!

Somewhere in the East against the Russians, early 42?

I binge watched the entire ten episode miniseries Friday night.
 Top notch!

Ok, I admit being from Louisiana I am very proud of our area’s contribution to WWII. The Higgins Boat has been called “the boat that won the War”. I hope you will all enjoy this video on a very important part in our nation’s history. 🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸

Here is to finding old friends and resurrected threads.


Today in history.

May 10 1940. The knotz Germans begin their invasion of western Europe. Within 6 weeks, Netherlands, Belgium, Luxembourg, and France had all been soundly defeated and the BEF had been expelled from the continent with massive losses in equipment.

Here is a pic of a German mechanized column going through a captured French town. Leading is a Sturmgeshütz III B. To my knowledge only 6 of these type were available
for the invasion. IIRC this example was attached to Liebstandarte Regiment at this time.

The Matilda II, circa May 1940. AN armored behemoth for its time. Too bad the main gun was pretty useless against soft targets, being able to only fire armor piercing ammo.

This pile of junk was heavily armored though that only reliable way to knock them was using a 88mm Flak gun.

My Grand Father said he fought in the  Battles of Khalkhyn Gol and killed many Japs (his words, not mine), he says that the Japs were like a bunch of pissed off fire ants spreading thru Asia and that they needed a good stomping.
