Parachute Tank division??????

Old uncle Hermann coined this name after consecutive dose of morphine... :D

Hermann Goering division had only modest 2 battalion tank regiment.
The only paras were battalion called Divisional School of Fighting.
From the name many legends arised making HG division the strongest German unit on both fronts. In reality just an average for summer 1944.

That's all for today. I tried to made captions funny, but would like to point that all the photos show normal people, ordinary servicemen in many situations. They are great for someone which is trying to understand WWII
in many perspectives. (Human one is perhaps the most important).

Good evening, honorable ladies and gentlemen. Sorry for my protracted silence, but that ill-fated, personally indeed painful hard-disc crash that occurred almost a month ago was a… very challenging phenomenon, if I may say so! However, I was able to somehow re-arrange all those dispersed data-collections, so I hope that I will be able to participate here more frequently.:)

Ja

Quote to self in the Pz V topic.


Panther Ausf G with steel-rimmed road-wheels.

Originally, it was planned to manufacture model Ausf G with steel-rimmed road-wheels (instead of previously used rubber-rimmed road-wheels), the all steel stamped wheels would save manufacturing tim, but in 1944 only small series of 24 was produced.

http://img517.imageshack.us/img517/9535/panstenr6.jpg



And one fantastic picture of the all steel wheel G in the front, this Panther had already entered in combat as in noted in the 3 killmark painted near the muzzle of powerful Kwk 42. Note that one of the external roadwheel has been replaced with the standar rubber tired model.

The Second World War still has weighs on many people, more than 60 years after it came to an end. As we all know, honorable ladies and gentlemen, real war is not a game – and war's real costs and consequences never can be declared sufficiently and apparently. Sorrow is the natural human response to death, and the full factographic expression of the verity of war may be war's most natural and effective deterrent.

This rare color photography is a truth force that says: "This is what war looks like". Simply and undeniably.

As we all know, honorable ladies and gentlemen, winter is a bed time for fighting. The nights are freeying cold, the ice-cold rain or snow seldom lets up, the battlefields are oceans of mud, or frozen snow-slurry…

The stakes of the winter battle are large and the losses are bound to be dramatically heart-rending. But perhaps there is nothing more dramatic in entire military history of the world than the stunning assault of the cold on the Wehrmacht in the Russian Campaigne.

The magnificent weather which favoured the German offensive at dawn on October 2nd 1941 was followed, a few days later, by a long period of rains, sometimes mixed with snow. From October 20 onward, the German armies were literally wading in the mud of the steppes. Off the roads the terrain was generally impassible and, with rare exceptions, the roads themselves were dreadful sloughs where vehicles were seen to completely disappear. All the rivers were in flood, which made it a long and difficult operation to repair the countless bridges that the Soviets had destroyed in their retreat.

There is abundant photographic evidence to illustrate this phase of the campaign and it shows mud up to the hubs of German vehicles, up to the bellies of their horses, and over the knees of their soldiers. Suddenly, the drop of temperature was far greater than expected, and was untolerable toward the realization of the tasks required by OKW. On November 12, the temperature was -12 degrees of Centigrade, the following day -13 degrees and, on December 4, the mercury fell to unbearable -35 degrees with a strong north-east wind that made the biting cold even more painful. As we all know, winter equipment was ordered too late, delayed on its way to the front by the effect of the cold on German locomotives... Badly worn by five months in the field, the clothing of the German soldier was, in any case, not at all suitable for the rigors of the Russian winter... This rare color photo, however, speaks for itself about those well known conditions.

http://www.myalbum.com/Foto-HOAOJGWO.jpg

The crew of a PzKpfw III is trying to melt out the frozen mud around their tank by bucketing hot water – December 1941, vicinity of Mozhaisk, photo taken by Dr Eugen Ott

Due to lack of antifreeze German engines had to be left running all the time, which meant a considerable increase in engine wear, as well as significantly augmented fuel consumption. Crampons for the tank tracks had not yet reached the front, and the tracks were too narrow to carry the tanks over the deep snow. Automatic arms jammed during combat and guns did not recoil properly after firing. Parts made out of synthetic, butadiene-sodium based German Buna-rubber, became friable and took on the consistency of wood. In these conditions, the motorised army-supply columns were able to cover only 20 miles a day, or even less...

Auxiliary horse transportation companies, hurriedly prescribed by German headquaters and applied on a spur of the moment by German troops were only a temporarily solution, because the army's livestock suffered terribly too. It was generally unknown that the German horse does not have the same resistance to the harsh Russian climate as his Russian cousin, who was accustomed to scratch out grass with his hoof.

It was in the depth of winter, and the march of the transportation columns through the heavy, snowy roads, were very trying and wearisome; But the soldiers and animals endured all… somehow.

You mean those color pictures from the German winter campaign, mein lieber Herr Major? They are originating from a half-forgotten Yugoslavian edition of the "Picture History of World War II", printed in 1970 by „Mladinska Knjiga”, Ljubljana under the license provided by American Heritage Publishing Inc., and originally published in English in 1966 (pp. 276-277).

This one, however, derives from the page 349:

Advancing German infantry – USSR, September 1941.

BTW: I think that I have seen before that highly appealing signature of yours... If I remembered that well, it was created by a truly remarkable and absolutely unique personality, who was my personal adviser about German armored vehicles – a genuine, matchless celebrity of the German part of the Internet, who always signed his posts with that distinctive expression "Mit besten Schwermetallgrüßen"… Are we, by any chance, honored with his personal visitation here, my dear Herr Major? :)

That's a very interesting photograph.

The sldrs don't have cuff titles which would normally indicate they've not passed off the square.
No oversmocks so it may mean it's dated from pre-war until the end of the Polish campaign in '39, or it's of lads in trg.
There again, drawing on arty shells when in trg seems odd too.
It's definitely a propaganda shot so maybe the snapper used recruits as they were the nearest troops.
There is so much that is open to conjecture.
Have you any more information about the date, location, etc ?

Some Koreans were also found fighting with the German Army.

They were joined or forced into the Japanese army and sent to Europe as conscription troops.

Is this real? Which one of the soldiers can consider himself more lucky?
The quality is too good to be genuine action footage. Most likely it is a training film - among the weapons issued to the British Home Guard were bags of pepper intended to be thrown in the enemy's face. Since the thing being thrown appears soft and to give off a big cloud of dust, and the thrower is wearing a Brodie helmet, I think that is the most likely explanation.

Unfortunately, my dear Mr. Panzerknacker, this time we are not facing giant officers and midget soldiers. Depressing verity is that those German combatants actually are the members of the very last available German human reserve – 14 and 15 years-old kid recruits of the Wehrmacht. :(

My history teacher in 9-10th grade was one of them. At the age of 15 he was issued a rifle in already surrounded Berlin and ordered to take on the Red Army. The result of this deployment was that he lost both eyes through a Russian tank shell (he told us that the last thing he saw was a T-34 coming around a street corner. Then it fired and apparently a fragment of the shell entered one temple, exiting on the other side, cutting the visual nerves to both eyes. He was the youngest Wehrmacht soldier blinded in WW2). During his stay in hospital and recovery, he became very disillusioned with the Nazis. He still managed to finish school with the Abitur exams and later earned a PhD in history, before becoming a school teacher. Dr. Liepe, I don't know if you are still alive, it has been more than 20 years, but you have been the best history teacher I ever had. You taught us how to THINK and to evaluate sources critically.

Oh, I am sure that he was more than able to understand those heartless lessons of history, my dear Mr. Walther. Yes, history did not happen to us because it was bound to happen in that way, nor yet did it happen by accident either. It happened because the people of history behaved in the way they did in the light, or the darkness of their consciousness. And the future will not happen in a predictable and inevitable manner, nor will it come as sightless accident – it will come as we, in our consciousness of historical freedom, fashion it on our own responsibility.

After all – that’s why we are here. :)

And now, something new and – most probably! – much more cheerful:

kind of-sort of related to the last post (from axishistory.com)

The German tank men would well be forgiven if they thought that every living creature in Russia was against them, particularly in view of the telex message from Army Operations Section of OKH and sent to all Army Groups. This read: "A panzer division on the Eastern Front which had placed its vehicles under cover and in a warm place, in accordance to standing orders, found that when an alarm call was received only 30 percent of its vehicles were ready for action. Mice had gnawed through the electric leads on the engines of the tanks."
A Staff Officer with a sense of humour had annotated the document with the words "Soviet mice!!!!"
-"War on the Eastern Front 1941-45"; James Lucas

When I first read the above, it seemed just an amusing anecdote from the OstFront, but the chance discovery of previously restricted Soviet files, and a fluke of luck during an interview with a former Waffen-SS member, put me onto the trail of that most secret of secret wars within WW2. Initially following the lead on Soviet mouse detachments, this led to revelations about SS cat operations, and eventually to the untold story of what really happened to the disbanded antitank dog units of the Red Army. This is the story of animal heroics amidst the carnage and brutality of the OstFront. Battles fought in cellars and engine-compartments, away from the prying eyes of the better-known human combatants.

Formation of the First Soviet Mouse Units
During the bleak days of "Barbarossa" in 1941, the beleagured Soviet Union was struggling desperately for survival, and all non-essential tasks were put to one side to concentrate on the defeat of Nazi Germany and her allies. One such area of non-essential work was the "Mouse Research Unit" at the University of Smolensk, led by Dr. Igor Valenkho. He had pioneered Pavlovian methods for teaching tricks to laboratory mice, and intended to use his mice for fine repair/recovery in industry and engineering - allowing work to be carried out without need to strip down machinery. But it was not regarded as realistic, and (especially with the approach of the Wehrmacht) Valenkho was re-assigned to the newly created anti-tank dog training unit. While despairing of his new work, the mouse-expert secretly continued with his old research, but with a new goal - anti-tank mice! Combining the two areas of research with which he had become involved, he spotted a niche for his trained mice. With their ability to get inside engines and destroy wiring and other small components, they were ideal for the task of disabling tanks and other vehicles. But there was a problem - how to get the mice to their targets?
A flash of new inspiration came to Valenkho - the Polikarpov light bomber aircraft were famously making low-level nuisance raids on the Germans. They could drop his mice directly into action!
After some persuasion, he was allowed to carry out an experimental drop on a German Panzer unit near Kirov in early April 1942. The results must have impressed the Red Army, because further drops were authorised, and in particular the mouse attack on 22 Panzer Division, 18-19 November 1942 which had a dramatic effect on the Stalingrad Campaign...

The German Response
Following this successful operation, Valenkho examined one of the disabled tanks (recovered by the Soviets) and discovered one of his mice sleeping in the engine compartment. This was the famous "Mikhail", who was honoured with a special "Hero of the Soviet Union" medal for his part!
However, the easy days for the mouse specialists were drawing to a close. Apart from the awareness of mouse activity (as represented in the quote at the start of this document), the shooting-down of one of the specially-equipped Polikarpovs gave the Germans a clue as to what was going on...Thus, in late 1942, there developed the use of cats in Panzer units to combat the Red Army Mice. In Wehrmacht units, a random collection of cats were unofficially added to the ration list, and gave sterling (if unrecorded) service. But, in typical style, the SS would only allow pure black cats into their "Katzesicherheitabteilungen" (KSA - Cat Security Units). While showy, these units were often inferior to their scruffier Heer contemporaries (where the cats were chosen as mousers, rather than by how they looked). But Germany could not seem to supply enough cats.
In desperation, the SS then organised special "Handschar" and "Hiwi" units of non-German cats, with some success. (It has been noted that, in the immediate post-war period, due to intelligence gleaned from former-Wehrmacht and SS officers, the US and UK both organised provisional cat units to protect their armoured units from possible Soviet sabotage - this was later rendered unnecessary when British scientists discovered a wire-coating inedible to mice).

Every Dog Has His Day?
With the reduction in success of his rodent legion, Dr. Valenkho despaired again - until another flash of inspiration struck him. The anti-tank dogs had proved a failure, and dogs were now being reassigned (mainly to Gulasch or Vivisection duties!). Realising a use for limited numbers of these already trained dogs to escort his mice into action. If one or two dogs could be dropped in conjunction, these would chase off or distract the cats and allow the mice to infiltrate the AFVs. It was a desperate measure, but given the options a number of dogs did "volunteer" for duty. The resulting actions were of limited success, however, partly as the new Tigers were virtually proof against mouse attack - the petrol fumes tended to kill/overcome the mice before they could chew through the wiring.
Anyway, by now the Soviets were on the upsurge, and had less need of such tricks...

More seriously on the dog picture, as dogs rely upon air over their mouths for cooling and given the constricted airflow and extra breathing effort in the gas masks, wouldn't they have been required to make a far greater effort than humans to survive under extreme exertion in battle? Which isn't fair, although conscripting dogs and other animals - apart from humans who are too dumb to object - for war isn't fair to begin with.

Normal practice would have been to be standing outside the trail-arm of the mounting when pulling the lanyard.
From the fact of the man remaining within the trails, I'd think either very careless or inept troops, or badly uninformed and ill-prepared actors.

No actors, that was the Frontschau, an series of training videos for the army, not the Wochenschau wich was a weekly newreel for all public.

The spades in the howitzer carriage were not properly deployed, probably the gun was shoot in a hurry.

You're right Uyraell, it does help with the aiming when the cap isn't in your way, but that would only be done in combat/firing situations, not while being lined up and supposedly 'at attention'.

If you look at them, you can tell they obviously feel rather humiliated by the way they have to stand there...

I encountered these pictures before. These soldiers are indeed POW's. Furthermore they're tank- respectively assault gun troops, you can tell by the uniforms. So, no real aiming problems because of the caps. Another strange thing - which can oftenly be seen on photos of German POW's of the Red Army- is the unusual position of the decorations. Just take a look at the soldier far left in the larger picture. His Iron Cross 1st class almost pierces his Adam's apple.;)

I really don't see what you're talking about, flamethrowerguy. The Iron Cross of the soldier on the left side is just pierced into his left front pocket, if that's the one you're talking about?

As for the shabby look of them: I wouldn't be surprised if that was a Soviet way of redeeming the 'German Arrogance' they felt German troops had, by humiliating them. Some of the uniforms even look like they were taken from smaller/bigger soldiers and put on them...

Well, it obviously is a harmless case of humiliation, but its humiliation nonetheless, just the same way it would be humiliating for you if you had to stand in line in your little/big brother's clothes, with the pants on backwards. It's not a crime against humanity or anything big, but it still is something.

Such a personal marking on a vehicle wasn't unknown on Allied vehicles either, though they tend to be more difficult to find pictures of.
Basically, the marking takes the place of the "Lady's favour (ribbon)" that used to be worn on a Knight's Helm during either Tourney or Battle.

And the belief is similar: that the symbol will ward-off evil that approaches the one who carries it.

As example on an allied vehicle, I have seen a heart applied on both a Cromwell, and a Valentine, and a Jeep, both latter vehicles seen in real.

Regards, Uyraell.

I'm pretty sure its real, though I have a tough time telling if its WW1 or WW2 - If it is WW2, as I believe, than this is only from a training exercise - there were no Gas attacks in WW2...

I think its a Kar98b, which is after WWI....

Well, the sights on the top of the gun make it look somewhat like the original Mauser 98, but i seem to see a little dent on the side, which would speak for a K98b.

I'm starting to think that this is probably from a training exercise of the Weimar Republic...

Honorable ladies and gentlemen, I am under painful necessity of informing you that in consequence of having supported several serious architectonic re-compositions of my dearly beloved library during the last two months I was quite incapable of facing my engagements here. :(

As soon as our heavy constructive works here can be accomplished - in two weeks at the most - I hope to be able to do honour to all my liabilities. ;)

In the meantime, here is another example of a new full-color apotheosis of the rare & funny vera eikon:

Hänsel, pull up here, Hänsel rip it up there… Hänsel is working everyvhere! (He 111, KG 55 Greif) [Original inscription: "Success is the result of hard work", "Signal" U/Nr. 12-42]

In our opinion the complaint is not correct. :)

Just an idle thought, but on Malta and at times in the desert, the Brits used to start aircraft by swinging the prop through with a rope that had a leather-wrapped loop which was placed around the prop blade. The exercise usually took 3 to 4 brave (and damn quick on their feet(!)) men to carry out successfully.

Librarian, I wondered if there are images of the same process in the Luftwaffe or Regia Aeronautica?

Oil be damned! I told you, Mischel, that it was incorrect to refil the Steering circuit to the filler cap with 28 buckets of Winterschall’s Lubrol! Equally, hitting the cylinder with a hammer will not cure pinging; we have achieved reverse steering instead!

Possibly, my dear Mr. Uyraell. And I am assuring you that we’ll do our best to find them! ;)

Hello.

I once heard that the Reichswehr used 'Paper-Panzers' during maneuvres ... but i thought they spent more money on those [now imagine a large maneuvre tank battle].

http://i36.tinypic.com/kf12s6.jpg

I think that model was used for AT training purposes - we also used wooden tank models [nice old russian BMPs and a T72] for PzFst3 training before going to the shooting cinema.

Best regards.

Alas, my dear Mr. Uyraell, I was unable to discover any photo connected with that previously mentioned prop-swinging theme. However, some pretty amazing photos taken in the early forties from behinds the WW 2 scenes were discovered during that tiny research. Here is one example, otherwise completely suitable for this thread:

Yes, Sir –I do know that the SC 50 surely is a less important contributory cause of the painful spine, but if you provide us with some supplementary Pferdebalsam, I am assuring you that my performance will be splendidly devoted again in almost no time!

No, my dear Mr. Ivaylo. Our distinguished Mr. User Name actually is anticipating our common European future. In fact, the EUSSR is taking shape right in front of our eyes, especially now, when our dearly beloved president of the EU has come into being. ;)

Nevertheless, enough with this vacant thinking, and back to our main theme in this thread: color photo-rarities connected with the German Armed Forces.

My sincerest congratulations, Bruno! You do have magnificent driving skills, but we, somehow, use a great deal of your brilliance to keep ourselves stuck in the sand, and I'll bet that your clutch adjustment now is out of whack… („Signal”, U/Nr. 8-41, PK Schultz)

And why EUSSR ? EU is not based on communist or leninist ideas , there is no KPSS or something ... We're becoming more like USA rather than the old USSR i think .USSR was a closed type of sistem nothing in common with EU.

Schuultz
12-03-2009, 08:07 AM
The reasoning for the buzzword EUSSR is simply that it is not democratic. Just like the USSR, the EU is governed by a political elite, not elected by the people but chosen by the powerful. I have not seen a public vote regarding the Presidency of the EU, or the state secretary, or the foreign affairs secretary, or any position, really.
Important positions are given away through trading and gambling at the top level of the politicians, not elections among all the European people.

Why?

Because if the EU was democratic, the large states - that is Germany, France, GB (in that order) could achieve a majority over the rest of the EU states.
This, of course, is something they don't want, so they rather reduce the power of the big states and strengthen the weak ones - a motif that you find throughout the EU:
Good for the small states, bad for the big ones.

Germany is one of the biggest losers of the EU. It currently has a national debt of almost 1,650,000,000,000 Euro. And yet, Germany pays a rough average of 550,000,000 Euro to every EU state each year (It pays 26,000,000,000 Euro a year, with a return of roughly 12,000,000,000 Euro), practically financing many of the smaller Eastern European states without return.
Now, do you understand why Germans who actually deal with the matter and aren't blinded by some ridiculous EU-philia strongly dislike it?
The big economic winners are Italy, Spain and Poland - they are/were able to quickly modernize their countries and keep them competitive in the Global and European market. In other words, the big states Germany, France and Britain finance the competition of their own industry.
Not to mention countries like Greece, which, without European financing, would have been broke 10 times over by now, and single-handedly pushes down the value of the Euro year for year.

So why, you might ask now, would German, French and British politicians always work towards the EU?
The answer is a simple one: Power.
This is something you always hear from EU-philes: "Can you imagine how powerful Europe could be, if it would only work together?" or "Europe could be the new super-power, if we were only united!", or, as Tony Blair said: "As it is, Europe is turning into a Middle-Ages Disney land for the American and Chinese politicians. The EU has to be united if we want to continue to have a say in global politics".

For the EU-philes, the Union is pretty much supposed to be the anti-dote against the loss of global power following the end of European Imperialism and the emergence of the US and USSR.
