"Hearts & Minds"

"During World War II, American soldiers on the battlefield remember the sexual experiences they had--and wished they had--with the women they left behind."  This is just your normal porn fare set in a WWII setting so enjoy it here.  Now note the site has a few pop-ups but when you get past them its party time.

Now you know what they were fighting for!

"Les grandes Grandes Vacances" aka "The Long, Long Holiday"

"Experience a new perspective on a World War II through the eyes of two young city children who are living at their grandparent's country home at the beginning of the war.  Despite the war, they will experience wonderful adventures while coming into contact with nature and animals and, making new friends!"  This was a pretty good show so give it a go at the links below.  

A new perspective of the war most have not seen,

Enemy Elite Friday: Enzo Grossi (Italy)

"Awarded the Knight’s Cross in recognition of his claiming to have sunk a Maryland-class battleship on the 20.05.1942 and a Mississippi-class battleship on the 06.10.1942.  However after the war it turned out that both claims were false, and that Grossi and his crew had imagined (or fabricated) everything."

A fabricated enemy elite,

Medal of Honor Monday: John W. Minick

"He displayed conspicuous gallantry and intrepidity at the risk of his own life, above and beyond the call of duty, in action involving actual conflict with the enemy on 21 November 1944, near Hurtgen, Germany.  S/Sgt. Minick's battalion was halted in its advance by extensive minefields, exposing troops to heavy concentrations of enemy artillery and mortar fire.  Further delay in the advance would result in numerous casualties and a movement through the minefield was essential.  Voluntarily, S/Sgt. Minick led 4 men through hazardous barbed wire and debris, finally making his way through the minefield for a distance of 300 yards.  When an enemy machine gun opened fire, he signaled his men to take covered positions, edged his way alone toward the flank of the weapon and opened fire, killing 2 members of the gun crew and capturing 3 others.  Moving forward again, he encountered and engaged single-handedly an entire company killing 20 Germans and capturing 20, and enabling his platoon to capture the remainder of the hostile group.  Again moving ahead and spearheading his battalion's advance, he again encountered machine gun fire.  Crawling forward toward the weapon, he reached a point from which he knocked the weapon out of action.  Still another minefield had to be crossed.  Undeterred, S/Sgt. Minick advanced forward alone through constant enemy fire and while thus moving, detonated a mine and was instantly killed." 

From S/Sgt. Minick's Medal of Honor citation, awarded in 1948.

May you be at peace,

"My Struggle"

I guess this is a manga of Mein Kampf.  Not sure why someone would make a manga of it but what can I say?  It's definitely WEIRD!

Leave it to the Japanese,

Honored Allies Wednesday: Aleksandr M. Vasilevsky (USSR)


"Vasilevsky was a Russian career-officer in the Red Army who attained the rank of Marshal of the Soviet Union in 1943.  He served as the Chief of the General Staff of the Soviet Armed Forces (1942-1945) and Deputy Minister of Defense during World War II, and as Minister of Defense from 1949 to 1953.  As the Chief of the General Staff from 1942 to 1945, Vasilevsky became involved in planning and coordinating almost all the decisive Soviet offensives in World War II, from the Stalingrad counteroffensive of November 1942 to the assaults on East Prussia (January–April 1945), Königsberg (January–April 1945) and Manchuria (August 1945).  Vasilevsky began his military career during World War I, earning the rank of captain by 1917.  After the October Revolution of 1917 and the start of the Civil War of 1917–1922 he was conscripted into the Red Army, taking part in the Polish-Soviet War of 1919–1921. In peacetime he quickly rose through the ranks, becoming a regimental commander by 1930. In this position he showed great skill in organizing and training his troops.  Vasilevsky's talent was noticed, and in 1931 he was appointed a member of the Directorate of Military Training. In 1937, following Stalin's Great Purge, he was promoted to become a General Staff officer.  At the start of the 1943 Soviet counteroffensive of World War II, Vasilevsky coordinated and executed the Red Army's offensives on the upper Don, in the Donbass, Crimea, Belarus and the Baltic states, ending his war in Europe with the capture of Königsberg in April 1945. In July 1945 he was appointed Commander-in-Chief of Soviet forces in the Far East.  He executed the Manchurian Strategic Offensive Operation (August 1945) and subsequently accepted Japan's surrender. After the war he became the Soviet Defense Minister from 1949 to 1953, a position he held until after Stalin's death in 1953.  With Nikita Khrushchev's rise to pre-eminence in the mid-1950s, Vasilevsky began losing power and was eventually pensioned off. After his death he was buried in the Kremlin Wall necropolis in recognition of his past service and contributions to his country."
