_history_pl. 🇬🇧 Today, August 23, 2019, the German daily Tagesspiegel criticized

🇬🇧 Today, August 23, 2019, the German daily Tagesspiegel criticized the silence of the role of the USSR in the outbreak of World War II. According to the newspaper, reducing the role of Joseph Stalin and the Red Army to victory over Germany Adolf Hitler is a mistake. "Almost 80 years ago, national socialist Germany began a war that resulted in the deaths of many millions of people. Most of the victims were citizens of the Soviet Union. But September 1, 1939, the day on which Wehrmacht invaded Poland, would not have been possible without August 23, 1939. on the day, 80 years ago, the foreign ministers of the Third Reich and the Soviet Union Joachim von Ribbentrop and Vyacheslav Molotov signed a non-aggression treaty. Hitler-Stalin pact, "the newspaper recalls. "In a secret protocol, both sides of the pact agreed on the division of Poland. In addition, Stalin was given the right to seize Finland, Estonia and Latvia," the newspaper adds. Just over two weeks after the Wehrmacht's attack on Poland from the west, from the east the Red Army entered the country with the largest Jewish population in Europe. In the middle, the allies met at a joint victory parade - reminds Tagesspiegel. According to the daily, from September 1939 to June 1941, when Germany invaded the Soviet Union, about 200,000 were murdered. Polish civilians. In official Soviet-Russian historiography, however, the Great Patriotic War begins only with the operation "Barbarossa" June 22, 1941 - he points out. "Can you be reminded of the cooperation of two totalitarian systems? This question sounds strangely defensive. What does" can "mean? Or shouldn't it be" done "? asks a Berlin newspaper. In reply, he says that the approach in which the roles of Stalin and the Soviet Union are reduced to victory over fascism is wrong. Although historical truth may hurt, millions of victims of communist dictatorship deserve to be remembered, the journal says. "National socialism and Stalinism were totalitarianisms that left a decisive mark on Europe in the 20th century. European memory must include all victims. Fragmentation is a contradiction in itself," writes Berlin's largest newspaper. ➡️ @history_pl_color

The Guadalcanal Campaign - Aug 7, 1942 – Feb 9, 1943 ▪️ Saburō Sakai (坂井 三郎 Sakai Saburō, 25 August 1916 – 22 September 2000) ▪️ “Sakai sustained serious injuries from the return fire of rear seat gunner. He was hit in the head by a 7.62 mm (0.3 in) bullet, blinding him in the right eye and paralyzing the left side of his body. The Zero rolled inverted and was descending toward the sea. Unable to see out of his uninjured eye due to blood from the head wound, Sakai's vision started to clear somewhat as tears cleared the blood from his eyes, and he was able to pull his plane out of the dive. He considered ramming an American warship: "If I must die, at least I could go out as a Samurai. My death would take several of the enemy with me. A ship. I needed a ship." Finally, the cold air blasting into the cockpit revived him enough to check his instruments, and he decided that leaning the fuel mixture he might be able to return to the airfield at Rabaul.” ▪️ IMAGE by - ▪️ #zeropilots

One of my weirder pieces. This is a Yugoslavian M59/85 helmet with an M68 veil cover. Despite looking similar to a mosquito net this is intended for camoflague purposes. It was part of a complete suit that was designed to be worn over the uniform. #MilitaryHelmets #MilitaryHistory #HelmetCollecting #ColdWar #Communism #Yugoslavia #YugoCivilWar #Balkans #MilitaryHelmet #History #Military #Camouflage #Camo #ArmyHelmet

LE "QUATTRO PIUME" ITALIANE Subito dopo la sconfitta subita ad Adua gli italiani dovettero fronteggiare l'invasione della Colonia Eritrea da parte di abbissini e dervisci. Questi ultimi, guerriglieri musulmani feroci e temuti che avevano già sconfitto gli anglo-egiziani negli anni predecedenti, cinsero d'assedio Cassala, città fortificata sudanese che gli era stata strappata dagli italiani nel 1894. In netta inferiorità numerica i soldati e gli ascari guidati dal capitano Hidalgo resistettero all'assedio mahadista per due settimane, poi, con il sostegno della colonna di soccorso del colonnello Stevani ribaltarono la situazione e sconfissero i dervisci dopo sanguinosi scontri all'arma bianca sul monte Mokram ed al campo trincerato di Tucruf. Il settimanale "L'illustrazione italiana" raccontò, praticamente in diretta, grazie a bellissime tavole a colori, gli eventi salienti dell'assedio di Cassala e della vittoria italiana, episodio della guerra mahadista (resa famosa per il film britannico "Le quattro piume") e riscossa dopo il trauma di Adua. ~ 📷 Tavole de "L'illustrazione italiana" sull'assedio di Cassala; Il capitano Hidalgo; Il colonnello Stevani; Sciabola da ufficiale Mod. 88; Casco coloniale Mod. 94 da ufficiale con l'iconico velo di seta celeste cupa . . . #storia #instastoria #instahistory #historian #historians #historyblogger #historyblog #regioesercito #regioesercitoitaliano #sciabola #swordcollector #antiquesword #cascocoloniale #belleepoque #italiacoloniale #storiacoloniale #dervisci #kassala #illustration #illustrazioneitaliana #800 #ottocento #militaryhistory #storiamilitare #militaria #raccontare #scoperte #collezione #collezionismo

Congratulations you ungrateful colonists, you just ticked off most powerful country in the world and they are now coming for you. On 23 August 1775, King George III issued “A Proclamation for Suppressing Rebellion and Sedition” which declared parts of the American colonies were in a state of “open and avowed rebellion” and gave authority to Crown representatives “to use their utmost endeavours to withstand such a rebellion.” Fighting would continue until the last major battle at Yorktown in 1781 and would officially end in 1783 with the signing of the Treaty of Paris (effective May 1784). ⠀ ⠀ Would you have rebelled against the mother country which was also the most powerful in the world to support a ragtag, unorganized, underfunded, and only partially supported by the public Continental Army?
