SOME WW2 FACTS..........The Germans had an aircraft carrier called “Graf Zeppelin” that never left port due to lack of finishing. After the war, the USSR used it to learn ways to sink Western carriers. The USSR had limited experience in naval combat during WW2 and was seeking ways to learn about carrier combat..........The invasion of Okinawa was larger than that of D-Day..........The US & UK actively worked on ways to assist their own POWs to escape prison camps. The United Kingdom had a very interesting method – Send care packages via the Red Cross that contained maps. The maps were made out of cloth Monopoly boards and contained secret codes..........Thousands of American servicemen were killed off the coast of the United States by the German submarines. In fact, this is the reason the saying “Loose Lips Sink Ships” became so popular. The US government’s intention wasn’t to avoid ship route information being leaked to the Germans (Granted, that certainly could have been a side benefit). The primary reason was to prevent American morale from faltering if Americans knew that German submarines were operating in as little as a few hundred yards off the coast. Sinking ships and killing American sailors who had very little defense. An etimated 609 American ships were lost during the ‘Second happy time’ for a total loss of 22 German U-boats..........The first Tiger tanks could actually act as submarines. Each tank was fitted with a snorkel that would allow the tank to operate underwater as long as it could reach fresh air. This was intended to allow tanks to drive through deep rivers in Russia. Eventually the parts were dropped in favor of making the tanks easier to produce..........Between December 7th 1941 and September 22nd 1945 it was illegal to sell a new car in the United States. In fact, new cars simply wouldn’t be produced during the entire war period. Any individual caught storing or selling new cars risked imprisonment..........Nickel was so valuable in the United States that the metal was actually removed from the 5-cent piece during the war. It was substituted with silver, which was considered less valuable for war. If you happen to find a nickel minted between 1942 and 1945, it most likely contains 35% silver content, which is worth anywhere between $1 and $2 depending on market prices. Pennies in Canada and the United States were also stripped of their copper content and replaced with galvanized steel..........Although making up around 2% of total naval tonnage, the United States submarine force accounted for more than 50% of enemy ships destroyed..........A battalion of Japanese Americans liberated the Dachau prisoner camp. Initially American soldiers in the camp feared that soldiers from the Empire of Japan were there to kill them. The soldiers quickly realized they were mistaken when the soldiers spoke English and started passing out cigarettes..........On November 11, 1940, Molotov met with Ribbentrop in Berlin, where the German Foreign Minister insisted that Britain was “finished.” Then an air raid alarm blared, and everybody went to the shelter, and waited out the bombing. Molotov asked acidly, “If the British are finished, why are we sitting here, and whose bombs are falling on us?” Ribbentrop had no answer..........Pearl Harbor was bombed a total of three times during ww2. Twice on December the 7th, 1941, and again on March 4th 1942. The first two attacks resulted in significant devastation to the US navy. The third attack resulted in no American casualties, the bombs dropped by the Japanese however did damage some private property..........The French government recruited SS and former Wehrmacht prisoners to fight against the Vietnamese in the French-Indochina war..........A total of 236 submarines were used by the United States during WW2. A total of 52 were destroyed, resulting in a 22% casualty rate, the highest of any branch during WW2..........Nicknamed the “White Mouse”, a Australian citizen by the name of Nancy Wake led a one-woman army through occupied France and parts of Germany. She managed to kill (by some estimates) dozens of German soldiers while blowing up no less than one munitions factory..........Source: KnowledgeGlue

An Anonymous Vietnam Veteran Writes....

 The following are the words of an anonymous Vietnam Veteran who wrote in to the site. We thought it appropriate that these precious comments be published as a separate article....

As 19 yr. old Marine I was trained to kill the enemy and I will admit I had no reluctance to do so when we went out looking for them. Army units, not paratroopers or rangers,knew where to go to avoid contact.U.S. paratroopers and rangers of RVN area were highly motivated but VC and NVA would capture them but as a testimony has to how much smoke we put on their asses, they had bounties on our heads and only started taking marine prisoners when they knew that politics would soon end U.S.involvement.In the 1st combined action group our kill ratio was 11 to 1.

When those piss and garlic smelling bastards would mutilated, brutally mutilate one of ours we played their game, "you want to play fuck around you fish head eating monkey's, we'll play fuck around!!" It was tit for tat that stopped their "animalistics". I never enjoyed killing and never bragged about it in later yrs.But what hurts the Vietnam Vet is that we had no business fighting people who were trying to rule their own land and take it from those as the french who just wanted their resources. Although we never thought we were fighting for freedom but for each others survival, "with my buddy I'm cool cause united we stand" and we never lost a battle and when they hit us we knew that they out numbered us and still wipe out the VC and the 95th NVA got to where they ran from us cause every time we met them their numbers got less and less, some would surrender for the B-52's out fear in them and once they got trapped between us and the ROK Blue Dragon marines, those Koreans put a hurt on them more then we did and many became Chu Hoi's (fight us no more and live and eat well) My guilt is not of killing their wounded for that's what they did to us or flayng them alive went we found one of ours like that but the poor peasants who were caught in the middle, who got their meager huts and food resources burned when we found enemy arms and food sashed If they didn't do it the VC would kill them, we just destroyed the little bit they had.

The thing about combat professionals we started off as rookies and out of necessity of survival we got to be efficient killers and in my heart although I never want to harm another in anger or war, I know that if there is no flight, I will kill before being killed. When I come to this site it makes that guilt go away, it reminds me that I never let myself turn into an animal for the love of harming and killing ass many of us did but not on the scale of these blood sucking raping Japanese swine or Hilters less than men butt boy SS pigs. If I had have been in my father's war after knowing what japan and Hitler was doing to people I would have loved the honor of sending them to hell. I would have gladly fought and killed these baby killing rapist. The fact that so many were pardoned makes me sick to my stomach.But when I see what they did I feel so much relief for only did what we had to do and rape, baby killing and torture was beneath us.

Thank you Jesus!!

Points To Ponder


It is difficult to distinguish between the quality of both the German and Russian soldiers. Both were motivated by their love for their motherland. But there were others factors that drove the two sides to such desperate fighting.

One, both sides knew that this was a no-holds bar war. Not fighting was thus not an option.

Second, both Hitler and Stalin had squads that killed any deserter. Turning away from fighting was just not possible.

Thus was seen some of the most bitter, brutal and desperate fighting on the WW2 eastern (Russian) Front.
"Those who do not remember the past are condemned to repeat it."
-- George Santayana


"Be polite; write diplomatically; even in a declaration of war one observes the rules of politeness."
--Otto von Bismarck

"When the enemy advances, withdraw; when he stops, harass; when he tires, strike; when he retreats, pursue.'
--Mao Zedong


"The main thing is to make history, not to write it."
--Otto von Bismarck

"When you have to kill a man it costs nothing to be polite."
--Winston Churchill


"In time of war the loudest patriots are the greatest profiteers."
--August Bebel

"God is not on the side of the big battalions, but on the side of those who shoot best."

Quotes about War....

"Anyone who has ever looked into the glazed eyes of a soldier dying on the battlefield will think hard before starting a war."
---Otto von Bismarck


"Naturally the common people don't want war; neither in Russia, nor in England, nor in America, nor in Germany. That is understood. But after all, it is the leaders of the country who determine policy, and it is always a simple matter to drag the people along, whether it is a democracy, or a fascist dictatorship, or a parliament, or a communist dictatorship. Voice or no voice, the people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders. That is easy. All you have to do is to tell them they are being attacked, and denounce the pacifists for lack of patriotism and exposing the country to danger. It works the same in any country."
--Hermann Goering


"To conquer the enemy without resorting to war is the most desirable. The highest form of generalship is to conquer the enemy by strategy."
--Tzu Sun

"All men are brothers, like the seas throughout the world; So why do winds and waves clash so fiercely everywhere?"
--Emperor Hirohito
