ww2_airwar_over_western_europe "Empty you pockets, Tom, Dick and Harry, strip your identity, leave it behind. Lawyer, garage hand, grocer, don't tarry. With your own country, with your own kind.

Leave al your letters. Suburb and township, Green fen and grocery, slip-way and bay, hot spring and prairie, smoke-stack and coal tip. Leave in our keeping while you're away.

Tom, Dick and Harry, plain names and numbers, pilot, observer and gunner depart. Their personal letter only encumbers somebody's head, somebody's heart." John Puddy

bubnovpa The Seventh Army was the first American formation of Field Army
size to see combat in World War II. It was formed from the
U.S. I Armored Corps to take command of #Americanforces in
#OperationHusky, the invasion of Sicily. During the campaign, it
was commanded by Lieutenant General George Patton. Patton
officially took command of the Seventh Army aboard USS Monrovia (APA-31), Admiral Kent Hewitt's flagship, thus became the Army's
motto, "Born at sea, baptized in blood." Later was added "...crowned with glory."

fovmodels The night has set in. Nothing but the sound of the cold winter wind blowing and automatic gun fire in the distance can be heard. The cold wind blows against your face. Your nose, ears, fingers, and toes are numb. The only thing keeping you from giving up is the picture of your kids, tucked away in a pocket on your winter coat. 41min

ww2_airwar_over_western_europe The allied bombing was not only devastating for the German citys, but also for the citys in the german occupied low countries. The most devastating was the attack on the belgium town Mortsel by the 8th Airforce on april 5 1943. An attack that supposed to hit a German aircraft plant near Antwerp instead hit the belgium town. Killing 926 civilians. #airwar #ww2 #bombing #usaaf #mortsel #belgium #worldwartwo #wwII #wereldoorlog2 #tweedewereldoorlog 11h
