blitzkrieg1933 "On this day during World War 2" July 26, 1944 The first German V-2 rocket hits the United Kingdom.

The V-2 (German: Vergeltungswaffe 2, "Vengeance Weapon 2"), was the world's first long-range ballistic missile. The liquid-propellant rocket was developed during the Second World War in Germany as a "vengeance weapon", designed to attack Allied cities as a form of retaliation for the ever-increasing Allied bomber effort against German cities. The V-2 rocket was also the first man-made object to enter the fringes of space.

Beginning in September 1944, over 3,000 V-2s were launched by the German Wehrmacht against Allied targets during the war, mostly London and later Antwerp, and Liege.
The V-2's greatest impact may have been after the war; as Germany collapsed, teams from all of the Allied forces raced to collect rockets, designs and the German engineers and scientists involved in the V-2 effort. In the immediate post-war era, these teams were combined with local groups to re-engineer and update the V-2 design. The knowledge gained from these efforts led to rapid progress, especially in the United States and the Soviet Union, and by the mid-1950s, nuclear-armed descendents of V-2 missiles were common battlefield weapons. By the end of the decade these had reached intercontinental range and became a primary strategic weapon.

Through a lengthy sequence of events, a significant portion of the original V-2 team ended up working for the US Army at the Redstone Arsenal. This team, led by Wernher von Braun, would be turned over to NASA on its formation. For NASA they designed a series of booster rockets in the Saturn family, which successfully landed a man on the Moon. #ww2 #wwii #worldwar2 #worldwarii #germany #german #wehrmacht #luftwaffe #V2 #Rocket #science #uk #british #Britain #war #history #july26 #1944 #moon #space #NSDAP #nationalsocialism

theworldwars Two men of the 101st Airborne Division stand next to a Douglas C-47 Skytrain as one paints markings on the face of the other, the day before D-Day, June 5, 1944. The man on the right is holding a Thompson M1A1. What's a bit weird is that if you look closely at the patch on the left arm of the man on the right, both "Airborne" and the famed 101st Airborne eagle are both poorly colored over. I tried to find the same picture without those strange blurs, but each one I found had a dark blur over it. Someone must have done it on a computer, but I don't know why. Maybe for safety reasons, to protect the 101st? I don't know.

Normal World War I & World War II
theworldwars U.S. soldiers of the 25th Division move up along the Balete Pass in northern Luzon in the Philippines on April 12, 1945. Also on this very, United States President Franklin Delano Roosevelt passed away, while serving his fourth term in office. Roosevelt's four terms in office are the most by any U.S. President to ever serve in office. Years later while Truman was president, the maximum number of terms the president could serve was officially changed to two. President Franklin Roosevelt helped lead the United States trough the Great Depression and through the darkest conflict of the 20th Century, and by the end of that conflict, the United States would emerge as the most dominant nation on Earth. For these reasons, I personally believe FDR was the greatest president in U.S. history.
