The Normandy landings, codenamed Operation Neptune, were the landing operations on 6 June 1944 (termed D-Day) of the Allied invasion of Normandy in Operation Overlord during World War II. The largest seaborne invasion in history, the operation began the invasion of German-occupied western Europe, led to the restoration of the French Republic, and contributed to an Allied victory in the war. Planning for the operation began in 1943. In the months leading up to the invasion, the Allies conducted a substantial military deception, codenamed Operation Bodyguard, to mislead the Germans as to the date and location of the main Allied landings. The weather on D-Day was far from ideal, but postponing would have meant a delay of at least two weeks, as the invasion planners had requirements for the phase of the moon, the tides, and the time of day that meant only a few days in each month were deemed suitable. Hitler placed German Field Marshal Erwin Rommel in command of German forces and of developing fortifications ...

Maseko worked as a delivery man in the South African town of Springs[2] before volunteering for service in the Native Military Corps. After completing his basic training, he was sent to North Africa with the South African 2nd Infantry Division. He became a prisoner of war on 21 June 1942 when Major-General Hendrik Balthazar Klopper, surrendered to Field Marshal Erwin Rommel at Tobruk with 32,000 men, including 10,722 South Africans of the 2nd Division (of which 1,200 were Native Military Corps members). While a prisoner, he constructed a bomb, using a milk tin, cordite and a fuse and, with the help of fellow prisoners Andrew Mohudi, Sam Police and Koos Williams, managed to hide the device on a German cargo boat at the docks of Tobruk. The boat was destroyed in the explosion later that afternoon.[2] He was later presented with the Military Medal (MM) by Major-General F H T ...

February 19, 1943 World War II – African Theater Battle of Kasserine Pass The first major meeting of the United States Military, which was untested, and the German War Machine under the command of Field Marshal Erwin Rommel. Though the Allied combined British/American forces outnumbered the German/Italian forces (30,000 to 22,000), it was a major tactical victory for the Axis powers by killing or wounding 10,000 Allied troops and destroying 183 tanks while the Axis powers lost 2,000 troops and 34 tanks. There were two bright spots where as the Allies regrouped and prevented the Axis powers from going on an all-out offensive while the second was a lesson learned of the command and command structure, which was changed, with some of the Allied commanders being replace. When these two groups meet again, in varying sizes and places, the new command structure gave the edge to the Allies that eventually led to the Allies taking back Africa.

Manfred Rommel, Son of German Field Marshal, Dies at 84 Field Marshal Erwin Rommel was a hero of Hitler’s Germany, the legendary “Desert Fox” who seized the world’s attention with his daring tactics in North Africa from 1941 to 1943. Manfred Rommel was his son. He was 15 when he said goodbye to his father, then watched as two German generals ushered him into a car. The generals had given the field marshal a choice: commit suicide or face a rigged trial on charges of conspiring to kill Hitler. If he chose the trial, they said, they could not promise that his family would be safe. Field Marshal Rommel was guilty of supporting a plot to kill Hitler, whom he had decided was leading Germany to disaster. Within minutes, he bit into a cyanide pill and quickly died. It was Oct. 14, 1944. Manfred went on to become the three-term mayor of Stuttgart, a major city in southwestern Germany where Mercedes-Benz makes cars. He became a liberal voice in postwar West Germany, supporting the rights of immigrants, bac ...

Wiener Dogs Were Bred to Kill Badgers Photos.com With their furry kielbasa bodies, stubby little T-Rex arms, and a tendency toward unwarranted yapping, dachshunds are the feisty Rodney Dangerfields of the modern canine community. They may be the ninth most popular dog in the U.S. today (having overcome the stigma brought about during World War I by an unavoidable association with the Kaiser's Germany), but for most people the breed is little more than a running joke, often subjected to open ridicule in the streets. Thinkstock/Stockbyte/Getty Images "I can taste your mockery." But believe it or not, the goofball qualities of the dachshund were designed with a purpose in mind. Those long, barrel-chested bodies, pointy noses, and paddle paws, combined with that aggressive personality, are all perfect for the job they were created for: murdering badgers.

Greetings to all of you wonderful fans of Wilawai! Today starts the section titled The Primal Personality. The Primal Identity was my favourite piece to write- so I hope you are enjoying reading it as much as I enjoyed writing it. Happy day to all of you! The Primal Personality In non industrial societies, especially those of the past such as the Mesoamerican, Polynesian, and Native American cultures, the connection between man and nature was not lost as it is today. Indeed, these cultures considered themselves a part of nature in a very real way. As a result, no emotion or quality found within humans was without its counterpart in nature. Each animal was seen as the embodiment of specific qualities. These qualities included strength, wisdom, fertility, paternal protection, and maternal nurturing. They ranged from the communal nature of some animals to the independent nature of others. From hunting to foraging, giving birth to killing, every primal tendency was represented. Thus, a person was able ...

Some time ago, in a conversation with Oliver Preston, I mentioned that I had a story to share with him. I don't expect any of my atheist friends to endow this account with any credulity. I can hear the word 'coincidence' already forming as I type this and that's your assessment. My experience was and is different. I'm the last person fit to be preaching to anybody, so please don't take this as some sort of sermon. It took me a very long time to get anywhere as a writer. I collected a ream of rejection notices over the years and when i first started out that was all that rewarded any effort I made to put pen to paper. Better part of two years with nothing to show for it. A good deal of the blame, naturally, lay in a lack of experience and a dogged insistence on an archaic style (a hobgoblin that still causes me to butt heads with editors). Another part, however, was stubbornly trying to get into horror magazines with Lovecraftian themes or Victorian-style ghost stories when Splatterpunk was en vogue. Anywa ...

Weekend Quote: “Be an example to your men, in your duty and in private life. Never spare yourself, and let the troops see that you don't in your endurance of fatigue and privation. Always be tactful and well-mannered and teach your subordinates to do the same. Avoid excessive sharpness or harshness of voice, which usually indicates the man who has shortcomings of his own to hide.” ― Field Marshal Erwin Rommel
Canada and the Second World War The March of Conquest The year 1941 was to see the war encircle the globe, and see the creation of the Grand Alliance of Great Britain, Russia and the United States against the Axis powers, Germany, Italy and Japan. In the autumn of 1940, while the Battle of Britain was still raging, Mussolini, the Italian dictator, perceived an opportunity for conquest. On September 13, 1940, he invaded Egypt to gain control of the Suez Canal; and a month later carried the war to the Balkan peninsula with an unprovoked attack on Greece. The Italian Armies were held back and their victories forestalled until, in March 1941, the German High Command came to the aid of its Axis partner. Crack German troops marched on the Balkans. Yugoslavia was overrun in a few weeks and the Greeks, although aided by a small Commonwealth force, were soon defeated. The Afrika Korps, under Field Marshal Erwin Rommel, was sent to Libya and the Germans drove the British back into Egypt with heavy losses. Then, on ...

A notable dispelling of the Hollywood portrayal of the Nazis is in the person of Field Marshal Erwin Rommel, arguably Germany's greatest World War II general. Something that is kept fairly quiet - for obvious reasons - is that Rommel was a devout Christian. He was a man known for cutting the rations of his own men in order to feed prisoners of war. On one occasion, when there was grumbling among them over the extent of his humanness, Rommel ordered his standards will be followed simply because it is God's law, and that's that. "I have complete faith that God is keeping a protective hand over us and that He will grant us victory," Rommel wrote in his diary. How would someone of Erwin Rommel's character, who was also not known for being anti-Jewish, have fought for the German cause to the end if millions of people were being exterminated? It's highly unlikely that someone of his stature would have had no idea that it was taking place. -The Hidden World
Greeting Tankers. A little history: The Second Battle of El Alamein took place from October 23 to mid-November of 1942. It is best remembered as a contest of wits and wills between Lieutenant-General Bernard Law “Monty” Montgomery, the newly-promoted head of the British Eighth Army, and the famed and feared “Desert Fox,” Field Marshal Erwin Rommel, one of the men who pioneered modern armored warfare tactics from the war’s outset, and put the British strongly on the defensive. “Monty’s” energetic assumption of command and insistence upon resupply helped restore flagging British morale. Rommel realized he could not allow the British to resupply and launched an assault of his own before his ammunition and fuel could entirely run out: “The battle raged for twelve days. British artillery attacks were followed by a massive tank engagement in which both sides battered one another to an apparent bloody standstill. However, the 8th army had more tanks, and in what became a battle of attrition, Ro ...
UK Ministry of Defence seeks to counter growing opposition to war By Harvey Thompson 14 October 2013 A document obtained by the Guardian under the Freedom of Information Act exposes the preoccupation of Britain’s ruling elite with how to prosecute future wars in the face of growing anti-war sentiment. The study was written in November 2012 by a Ministry of Defence (MoD) think tank, the Development, Concepts and Doctrine Centre (DCDC) and entitled Risk: The Implications of Current Attitudes to Risk for the Joint Operational Concept . The eight-page document, which has no named authors, begins with two quotes. Bill Rammell, minister for the armed forces under the last Labour government, declares, “My great fear is that we as a nation will become so risk-averse, so cynical and so introverted that we will find ourselves in inglorious and impotent isolation by default.” Field Marshal Erwin Rommel states, “A risk is a chance you take; if it fails you can recover. A gamble is also a chance you take, but ...

(Note: There no WWI today. it's not there.) WWII: On this day in 1942, Field Marshal Erwin Rommel is brought to a standstill in the battle for control of North Africa. In June, the British had succeeded in driving Rommel into a defensive position in Libya. But Rommel repelled repeated air and tank attacks, delivering heavy losses to the armored strength of the British, and finally, using his panzer divisions, managed to force a British retreat—a retreat so rapid that a huge quantity of supplies was left behind. In fact, Rommel managed to push the British into Egypt using mostly captured vehicles. Rommel's Afrika Korps was now in Egypt, in El Alamein, only 60 miles west of the British naval base in Alexandria. The Axis powers smelled blood. The Italian troops that had preceded Rommel's German forces in North Africa, only to be beaten back by the British, then saved from complete defeat by the arrival of Rommel, were now back on the winning side, their dwindled numbers having fought alongside the Afrika K ...

POW Camp Once Behive of Activity Trinidad (AP) -- Crumbled cement foundation, an old water treatment plant and parts of the main gate are about all that's left of Camp Trinidad, a World War II lockup that once held thousands of captured German soldiers. Now cattle graze the remote 715-acre prison site, located about 200 miles south of Denver near the New Mexico border. Camp Trinidad was one of more than 240 such camps in the United States during the war, local historian Carla Ann Thompson said. The $1.8 million facility opened on June 4, 1943. It housed about 3,500 German soldiers during its heyday, many of whom were "the cream of prisoners," such as German Field Marshal Erwin Rommel's Afrika Korps, who had been defeated by British Field Marshal Bernard Montgomery's 8th Army. The camp was a beehive of activity with 330 structures, including 10 guard towers, and its own sewage and water supply systems. A hospital, blacksmith shop, stable, theater and post office were also on the prison grounds. "They had e ...

George Washington Named "Britain's Greatest Ever Foe" British National Army Museum poll identifies country's most outstanding military opponent. American Revolutionary War hero and the country's first president was the winner of a vote held to identify Britain's most outstanding military opponent, The (London) Daily Telegraph reported. Britain's National Army Museum conducted the poll in which George Washington topped Irish independence hero Michael Collins, French Emperor Napoleon Bonaparte, German Field Marshal Erwin Rommel, and Mustafa Kemal Ataturk, the founder of the Republic of Turkey. Historian Stephen Brumwell said Washington "led from the front but also had the skills to deal with his political counterparts in Congress and with his French allies. Above all, he never gave up even when the war was going against him." According to Brumwell, the American Revolutionary War was "the worst defeat for the British Empire ever," so it's no surprise that the architect of that defeat is Britain's most resp . ...
