If You Have Already Seen.....

If you have already seen any of the images here on some other site or forum, it is very likely the source is from here. This is the original site of rare images from war and history.

We have been accused.....

Pro-Nazi? Partial to fascism? Sympathetic to Nazism. These are some of the comments that come up. The truth is far from that. This impression was perhaps created because we carry more pictures from German sources. There is a reason for that. The victors (Russia, America, Britain...) tend to give out only those images that show them in good light. And they are dull! Who said propaganda is entertaining? The pictures taken by Germans are very interesting because the source; Nazi Germany itself disappeared. There was no one to control which images were to be released. And they are fascinating. They show war as it was. Not the way someone wanted us to see it.

Also, images of the Wehrmacht are fascinating for the simple reason ( besides, of course, that it was a very formidable fighting force) that the German army was defeated , dismembered, and most of the best soldiers died before WW2 ended.

We repeat. WE ARE NOT PRO-NAZI.

WW2 SPECIALS

Von Stauffenberg: The Man Who Almost Killed HITLER
After several unsuccessful tries by Stauffenberg to meet Hitler, Göring and Himmler when they were together, he went ahead with the attempt at Wolfsschanze on 20 July, 1944. Stauffenberg entered the briefing room carrying a briefcase containing two small bombs. The location had unexpectedly been changed from the subterranean Führerbunker to Speer's wooden barrack/hut. He left the room to arm the first bomb with specially-adapted pliers, a task made difficult because he had lost his right hand and had only three fingers on his left. A guard knocked and opened the door, urging him to hurry as the meeting was about to begin. As a result, Stauffenberg was able to arm only one of the bombs. He left the second bomb with his aide-de-camp, Werner von Haeften, and returned to the briefing room, where he placed the briefcase under the conference table, as close as he could to Hitler. Some minutes later, he excused himself and left the room.

Please note...

In articles related to the Eastern Front of WW2, the Soviet Union has been commonly referred to as Russia. This is because the Soviet Union was mainly Russia. Other states like Ukraine, Georgia, Byelorussia were in comparision very small.
