A soldier of the U.S. The Second Infantry Division was holding a little French boy in his arms, and both of them were smiling. Maybe this is one of the brilliance of humanity that flashed from time to time in the brutal World War II.
This photo was taken on June 11, 1944, of a U.S. soldier inspecting a German “remote-controlled track bomb” on Utah Beach in Normandy. This is a “black technology” specially developed by the Germans to deal with Allied armor. It is called the “Goliath Remote Control Bomb”. It can carry hundreds of kilograms of high explosives. During the war, the Germans built thousands of these devices. Son. The “Goliath Remote Control Bomb” has some clear drawbacks. It can only move at a speed of 9 kilometers per hour, requires a cable remote control, and the control cable is limited to a length of 630 meters. Therefore, this “black technology” is not of much use.
This photo was taken on June 13, 1944. After the Allied armored forces landed in Normandy, they drove deep into France, leaving billowing smoke and dust wherever the convoy passed. On the left side of the camera, the remains of a Spitfire lie there quietly. Not long ago, Garwood of the 412th Squadron of the Royal Air Force flew a fighter plane to cover the advance of ground troops. He did not want his car to encounter a malfunction and had to make an emergency landing here. Fortunately, Garwood was not injured and returned to the base unharmed a day later.
The photo was taken on June 17, 1944. The crew of a Cromwell VI tank belonging to the 7th Armored Division of the British Army were taking a group photo. At this time, they seemed very happy because they had just won military exploits not long ago. The guy named Cotton in the lower left corner is the commander of the vehicle. He looks a little proud at this time. Not only is he wearing an Italian Air Force “Marus” jacket, he even has a German Iron Cross on his chest. In an operation a few days ago, the crew destroyed a Panzer IV tank, and the commander Cotton was promoted to captain.
The photo was taken on August 9, 1943. An American military doctor treated his comrades while the curious Italian people watched. This was a scene that took place during the Sicilian landing campaign. Not long ago, a corporal named Roy Humphrey was injured by shell shrapnel from the German-Italian coalition. Fortunately, he survived and was sent down in time by his comrades.
The photo was taken during the North African War. This is a German soldier. On the North African battlefield, the uniforms of the armies of various countries basically followed British styles. Therefore, identifying their identities mainly relies on various details. The soldier of the German Afrika Korps used two grenades as a chair, while holding his forehead and pretending to meditate. Guest officers can leave messages and try to figure out the psychological activities of this German soldier.
