Adolf Hitler with Francisco Franco at the Gare d'Hendaye, Hendaye France to discuss the entrance of Spain into the War with the United Kingdom. The demands of Franco conflicted with the interests of Adolf Hitler, Spain wanting Gibraltar, regions of Africa under Vichy control, as well as supplies to sustain Spain during its hardship. Wishing to not offend the Vichy government a secret agreement was made in which Franco could enter the war when he saw fit and in return Spain would receive some French holdings in Africa. Dated October 23, 1940.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
The German SturmPanzer came from a very well respected man who goes by the name Erich Von Manstein. He created the concept of a SturmPanzer or at least the origins of the SturmPanzer all the way back in World war 1. Manstein notice in world war 1 that the German Sturmtrüppen where getting their asses handed to them by Pillboxes and that they had no effective means of knocking these Pillboxes out. So Manstein knew exactly how to solve this problem. He said why not take a big ass artillery gun and put it on a tank. Then the tank can just drive up to the pillbox and blow it sky high. Sadly no one took him too seriously with this idea and only a few attempts were made to create the first SturmPanzer. Needless to say all attempts failed. However shortly before the outbreak of World War 2 the Germans went through with the idea and made many SturmPanzers in the years following. One of which was the StuG however the StuG SturmPanzer roll was short lived when they were converted to tank destroyers early on in world war 2. So what exactly is the official concept of a German SturmPanzer? Glad no one asked but the SturmPanzer is a assault artillery infantry support weapon. However that sounds very similar to artillery right? Well a SturmPanzer unlike artillery is made for only direct fire while artillery can do both direct and indirect fire. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Popsickle brake after sightseeing at Oscarsborg fortress yesterday 🍦🌞 an outdoor history lesson 📖 #spring is finally here!! And I am finally fit enough for slow walks in the sunshine 😎
__________________________________________________ The fifth graders have been talking about #WW2 this last week, commemorating the German #occupation of Norway April 9th 1940. What better way to remember history than taking a field trip to explore the places were things really happened?
#Oscarsborg fortress played a vital role in delaying the German invasion. The German ship #Blücher carried soldiers, military leaders and equipment to fascilitate a swift invasion. The vessel was attacked by cannons and torpedoes from the fortress and sunk while passing the narrow waters by the fortress. Hence delaying key invasion forces and by such creating just enough time to bring the royal family, government, parliament and state gold treasure to safety 🇳🇴. Between 600 and 1000 German troops drowned due to lack of life wests, frose to death in the freezing cold spring morning or burned when the oil leakages from the vessel ignited. War is never pretty. Offence or defence, someone always dies 😢🤕. The Norwegian troops on the shores who's mission was to capture the survivors, focused on helping the wounded, thus unintentionally allowing several leading German officers to escape and find means of reaching Oslo by land. I find some comfort in knowing that faced with pain and suffering, help and empathy was prioritized above tactical decisions ❤. In hindsight Germany would inevitably have captured Norway within days. Our ice free winter coastline was way too valuable to stay away from, and Germany in 1940 was a mighty military foe. But I like that we fought back, and then tried to salvage the personal sufferings. #history #historylesson #worldwar2 #Norway #Deutschland #humanity #historie #fieldtrip

An American soldier standing at the podium in the interior hall of Monument to the Battle of the Nations (Völkerschlachtdenkmal) in Leipzig after the city fell on April 18, 1945.
A large monument erected in memory of the victory over Napoleon in 1813, was one of the last bastions to capitulate to the Allied Armies.
One hundred and fifty German SS soldiers with ammunition and foodstuffs stored in the structure to last three months dug themselves in, but were blasted with artillery and defeated.

❌Graphic Content, KEEP SCROLLING IF YOU DON’T LIKE IT❌ Interestingly enough, many soldiers of both WW2 and WW1 practiced what is called Mensur (Burschenschaft). Mensur and Schmisse is an academic version of competitive fencing within fraternities in Germany, Austria and Switzerland. Men who dueled purely out of sportsmanship usually received facial scars. This is why you see so many German Wehrmacht and SS Officers with facial scars, most notably Otto “Scarface” Skorzeny. Skorzeny participated in 15 different duels and only received his scar on his last duel. The duels are done with a tradition eye mask and actual rapiers, so if you are slashed you will be injured. German men alike took pride in fencing and the dueling scars (Schmitte) were seen as honorable amongst Germans. Mansur is still practiced today in Germany, Austria, Switzerland and other German speaking countries. #history #historiansunion #interesting #germany

Visiting the @lyonairmuseum with my dad Steve. Here we are in front of a replica of the B-17 Nine O Nine, which flew 140 missions in WW2. At the time my grandfather Howard Snyder was piloting his B-17, the average was 6. Howard and his crew made it to 7, before getting shot down on his 8th, parachuting into Nazi-occupied Belgium, and evading capture for 7 months. And plenty more happened. Steve wrote a book about it titled SHOT DOWN. If you’re a history/WW2 buff, or appreciate a great story in general, this is something you want to pick up. Google “shot down book” and a link to Amazon should be the first thing that comes up. We are currently preparing a documentary, and intend to develop it into a feature film or miniseries. The more word gets out about the story, the better. Appreciate your support!! #shotdowndoc #shotdownbook

His initial command consisted of a flotilla of second-hand, if not run-down, boats with local commanders given authority to seek assistance from Kriegsmarine aircraft and local German lifeboat rescue societies. By the following year his units were designated the Ships and Boats Group- an unusual situation of a Luftwaffe officer commanding a fleet of ships! #war #military_history #military #soldier #army #thirdreich #kriegsmarine #ww2 #luftwaffe #germany

Welthauptstadt Germania, also known as "World Capital Germania" was the project to transform Berlin into the new capital in the Third Reich, if Nazi Germany won the war.

The model in the photos and the artworks gives us a glimpse of how it would look like, with the giant Volkshalle in the center.

The Volkshalle which had it's inspiration from the roman Pantheon and the St. Peter's Basilica in the Vatican City, would reach the height of around 290 metres (950 ft) and the diameter of the dome, would be around 250 metres (820 ft) and swallow up to 180 000 people.
The building was ultimately intended for public worship of Hitler, his successors and the Reich, like a gigantic nazi temple.

On top of the dome there would be a huge eagle clutching the swastika but that plan was later changed to a earth like globe instead of the swastika.

The interior would be decorated with marble pillars, eagles, statues, gold mosaic, among other things what would give a powerful impression.

The Polish resistance made an attempt to throw out the German forces from Warsaw when the Red Army approached the city.
Due to a short stop in the Soviet offensive, the Germans could regroup their forces and fight the resistance, but with alot of casualties.
The Uprising lasted for 63~ days and ended with a German victory.
Warsaw was left in ruins, the majority of the city was completely destroyed, the Germans continued the demolishion after the uprising aswell.
As Himmler said "The city must completely disappear from the surface of the earth and serve only as a transport station for the army. No stone can remain standing. Every building must be razed to its foundation." Around 15-16 000 of the resistance were dead or missing, up to 200 000 civilians had lost their lives, and up to 700 000 were expelled from the city, many of them sent to various camps, while the rest were transported to various locations in the German occupied Poland and released.
The majority of the survivors that fought the Germans, were sent to various POW camps in Germany

The Residenz in Munich is the former royal palace of the Wittelsbach monarchs of Bavaria. It is the largest city palace in Germany with a total of 130 rooms. One of the most impressive rooms in the Residenz is the Antiquarium. It's 66m long and was finished in 1571. It was almost totally destroyed during World War 2 (I've added a photo from the web to show how little of it remained), and was meticulously restored after.

This drawing is by Dr. Suess from July 1942. Laval was a deft political opportunist who had started out as a Socialist & ended up a mess. During WWI he was a pacifist & a supporter of Bolshevik Russia. After the war he was mayor of Aubervilliers, & then spent 2 decades enriching himself as he rose to become Prime Minister. Though anti-Nazi in 1935, by the time Germany invaded France in 1940, Laval saw Nazis as the ones to bet on. He sat out the German invasion down in Bordeaux. When Paris fell & Pétain asked Laval to join his government, Laval insisted on becoming Minister of Foreign Affairs so that he could gain favor with Nazi Germany. Pétain eventually chucked Laval out of govt. today because Pétain was upset that Laval had turned over French copper mines & Belgian gold reserves to Germany w/out consulting anyone. Pétain also found Laval slovenly & resented his lack of deference. Laval had a habit of blowing cigarette smoke in Pétain’s face. In 1942 Laval began the process of sending French laborers to Germany. When Germans demanded Jewish deportations of adults, Laval went beyond orders & included Jewish children. By D-Day in 1944, Laval was broadcasting nationwide telling Frenchmen not to fight. As Patton marched east, Laval fled west to Spain, but under tremendous pressure from de Gaulle, Spain sent Laval to US-occupied Austria where the US turned him over to the Free French. Charged with plotting against France & collaborating with Germany, he was shot in 1945 by firing squad. As the bullets rang out he shouted,”Vive la France!”

WW2 45th Infantry Division patch variations.

In WW2 the 45th Infantry Division participated in 511 days of combat including in Sicily, Italy, France and Germany.

After serving under General George S. Patton’s 7th Army during the Sicilian Campaign he had this to say about the 45th, “Your division is one of the best, if not the best division in the history of American arms.” (Reference: 45thdivisionmuseum.com)

On March 7, 1944 pilot Hans Fahrenberger took off on patrol from a grass airstrip at Avignon in his G-series Messerschmitt Bf 109. His mission was to defend the Axis-occupied port of Marseilles against raids by US Air Force bombers. As Luftwaffe fighters swooped in off the Mediterranean to intercept US aircraft in the skies above the city, a dogfight broke out, and Fahrenberger’s Bf 109 was badly damaged by an American P-38 Lightning, which had been tasked to escort the bombers. And yes, the pilot was rescued by the Seenotdienst. #war #military_history #military #soldier #army #thirdreich #kriegsmarine #ww2 #luftwaffe #germany

The Second World War had already been raging for nearly two years, but on 22 June 1941 the true slaughter that the war became began in earnest, and the downfall of Nazi Germany by the end of the campaign was all but secured.
The Germans were told it would be a short war; that the soldiers would be home by Christmas, having conquered the Soviet Union and the establishment of Germania not far off. Even though the operation was a strategic and tactical failure, the German war machine was not yet finished.. not by a long shot.

The Soviets were utterly dumbfounded, remembering that just a day before they were allied with their Fascist "friends" to the West. Even though the average soldier likely thought this way, the Soviet high command had been preparing for some sort of conflict with the Nazis for some time, though the scale of the invasion certainly had them stunned as well.
By 5 Decmeber, Barbarossa was finished and had claimed nearly six million military casualties (dead, wounded, sick) on both sides, not even counting the plethora of Soviet civilian dead and wounded. #operationbarbarossa #barbarossa77 #77years #ww2 #wwii #history -----------------------

This vehicle was quite the mock up with interesting features. It was based on the M3 Stuart Chassis, utilizing the gun mount for the 75mm gun on an M3 Lee. It boasted an M1A1 75mm Pak Howitzer.
This vehicle would be cancelled after the creation of two models, in favor for the turreted "T41" project. The Army disliked its Superstructure design, and nose-heavy weight. Proving to create more issues to handle. - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

To the north west, a Soviet heavy attack 100k south of Leningrad that had started 2 days before Christmas was repulsed today by the German 250th Infantry of Spanish volunteers. The Spanish volunteers were called the Blue Division. Spanish dictator Francisco Franco didn’t enter WW2 on the side of the Nazis, but he allowed volunteers to join the German Army as long as they fought exclusively against Soviet Communism on the Eastern Front, and not against Western Allies or any Western European occupied populations. This was Franco’s way of repaying Hitler for his support in the Spanish Civil War. Hitler’s Condor Legion of air force and army volunteers had fought in Spain from 1936 to 1939. During the early years of Franco’s regime he had admired Nazi Germany and had Spanish archaeologists seek to demonstrate that Spaniards were part of the Aryan race through their Visigothic heritage. The Visigoths were branches of nomadic German peoples who spread during the late Roman Empire & sacked Rome in 410. After sacking Rome, the Goths began settling down in Southern Gaul (France) and eventually Spain & Portugal were they founded the Kingdom of the Visigoths & ruled the region from the 5th to the 8th century. By 711 AD the Goths themselves were conquered by the Arab Umayyad troops from North Africa. In all, over 18,000 Spanish men volunteered to serve on Germany’s Eastern Front. By 1943 the Allies & many conservative Spaniards (including many in the Catholic Church) pressed Franco to withdraw the volunteers. Franco obliged in late 1943, but 3,000 refused to return. Others volunteered with the SS. In 1944 & 45, 372 Spaniards were captured by the Soviets. Of these, 286 were held captive until 1954.

Most people alive today weren't there to witness it. The numbers who witnessed Pearl Harbor are dwindling every year.

Your global preeminence was not bought. It was not bartered for, it was not negoiatated for. It was paid for in blood.

The chain of events that unfolded on that quiet Sunday morning in December 1941 would ring through history like an eternal bell. You cannot understate the furor of the American people that day.
That furor made steel coffins for Imperial Japan and Nazi Germany. It churned out ships, planes, tanks, weapons, ammo, food, and every other war necessity with astonishing speed and scale.The world had never seen anything like the American war effort.
And more importantly, it turned out men willing to do whatever it took for victory. Farm boys, city rats, sons of the reservations, southern bumpkins....all would fight side by side to push back Japan. Island by island, coral reefs and heat and jungle and sand be dammed, the Pacific would be won. In 3 years, the American fighting man defeated an army that successfully conquered East Asia and half the Pacific. American grit would wipe out the armies of murderers, rapists, and thieves that had systemically terrorized Asia since the early 30s. And as one man quipped, many a Marine would do so armed only with his rifle and a khaki shirt.

American exceptionalism started that Sunday morning in 1941. #neverforget

As the Reich conquered the Low Countries and Denmark and Norway, Seenodienst units were established in those countries for the rescue of downed aircrews. With the fall of France in 1940, captured French aircraft were added to the Seenotdienst fleet along with larger and more capable Dornier Do 24 flying boats. With the massing of Luftwaffe units in France for the anticipated invasion of Britain, German fighter ace and commander Adolf Galland stressed the importance of water survival to his flight crews- even single seat fighters were equipped with a survival raft and Luftwaffe crews were trained to ditch their aircraft and use the rafts as opposed to RAF crews who were trained to bail out and rely on their life vests. #war #military_history #military #soldier #army #thirdreich #kriegsmarine #ww2 #luftwaffe #germany

I have so much love for this museum and the brilliant work David Chipperfield, Julian Harrap, and their team, did in rebuilding and restoring it. The lavish 19th century building was bombed in WW2 and left in disrepair during the GDR years. The contemporary structure reflects this complex history by preserving parts of the original construction and decorative scheme where possible, while adding new elements such as the concrete and marble stairwell - managing to both respect the past and create something new and innovative - this is architecture at its best.

The German-American Bund (Amerikadeutscher Volksbund) was the pro-nazi organization in the U.S between 1936-41, reaching up to 25 000 members.

The organization which consisted of americans citizens with german desent, had about 20 combined youth and training camps, and 70 regional divisions across the country.

In 1939 they held a rally in Madison Square Garden, with up to 20 000 supporters attending, which can be seen on some of the pictures.

When the war broke out in 1939, the organization started to fall apart, the leader, Fritz Julius Kuhn was arrested for embezzlement and after the war deported to germany.

Why do they have George Washington there? One thing is that they celebrated his birthday during this rally, and the LIFE Magazine wrote an article were the headline said " Nazis Hail George Washington As First Fascist" - followed by
"Bund members reportedly declared George Washington “the first Fascist” because, they claimed, he “knew democracy could not work.”

LIFE Magazine's William Vandivert,
was the first Western photographer to gain access to the Führerbunker, this happened after that Soviet soldiers had looted the place.
He also took several pictures outside the bunker and of the destroyed Berlin.

The sofa in the first picture show traces of blood,
is this the sofa on which Hitler committed suicide? Or did the blood belong to Wilhelm Burgdorf or Hans Krebs, who also shot themselves in the bunker? A question that will remain a mystery.

The pictures were published in July, 1945

Today it's 73 years since Germany signed the first instrument of unconditional surrender of all German forces to the Allies.

The european part of World War II was over, but the pacific war would still continue for a while.

The pictures shows Alfred Jodl signing the contract in Rheims, on May 7th, 1945

It's hard to imagine that it's just 73 years since the deadliest conflict in human history, with 50-80 million lives lost, happened.
Far back in time, but still so close that there still are people here with us that witnessed it all.

Do you have a relative that served in the war? If so, where and what did he/she do?

🔸Fritz Christen🔸
(29 June 1921 - 23 September 1995)
Fritz Christen served in the Waffen-SS with the infamous Totenkopf ("Deathshead") Division on the Eastern Front from the first days of the invasion of Russia during Operation Barbarossa by German forces. On the morning of September 24, 1941, Christen and his anti-tank battery were fighting Russian forces north of the Russian village of Lushno. During this fight, all of Christen's comrades had been killed or had left the field of battle while Christen remained. While exposed to artillery and small arms fire, Christen manned his 50mm cannon alone, holding on without supplies or provisions for the next two days. At night, he would sneak from his firing pit out to other gun sites and retrieve ammunition to replenish his supplies to continue his fight. When a counterattack by other Totenkopf troops recaptured Lushno, Christen was credited with having knocked out 13 Soviet tanks and single-handedly killing approximately 100 enemy soldiers. The SS men that relieved him were amazed that a single soldier could hold his position against hundreds of Soviet troops and a formidable armor presence. He continued to fight bravely towards the end of the war, he and the Totenkopf division surrendered to American forces in Czechoslovakia. The Americans turned them over to the Russian Red Army. While in custody of the Russians, the Totenkopf men received especially harsh treatment due to their reputation as an organization that committed outrageous war crimes on Russian soil. As a result, many of these men died while in a Soviet gulag. Christen survived ten years of this brutal treatment and was released to return home in 1955. He died quietly at his home in Bavaria in 1995. He and his wife Maria are buried in Neusorg, Bavaria, Germany.

When you think concentration camp, you think Auschwitz. Whilst it is the most infamous it was not the first. This is Dachau, opened in 1933 by Heinrich Himmler originally to house political prisoners. It grew to house Jews, criminals, homosexuals, gypsies and anyone else the Nazi's deemed 'sub-human.' The camp was designed to house 5000 people. When it was liberated, it had 30,000 within it. Around 7000 inmates were sent on a death march from Dachau when the commandant knew liberation was inevitable. Those who couldn't cope with the six day journey were executed, whilst others died from exhaustion and hunger. Over 1000 people were found in a mass grave along the route.
Much like Auschwitz, Dachau is an unsettling place to visit. It was the prototype and model for the camps that succeeded it. It is a pity that a lot of it was torn down in the 50s and 60s, only two reconstructed barracks remain to remind people of what happened.

The main spark to the deadliest conflict in human history was ignited.
16 days later the Soviet Union invaded from the east, splitting the country in half.

Still unreal that it's been less than a hundred years since it happened, the humanity should work for a common goal, but the world seems to split up more and more each day, hate and false information about things are spread easily from every direction daily.

The Hartheim Castle, in Austria, was one of several places, where the Nazi euthanasia program, "Aktion T4" (Operation T4) took place.

Aktion T4, was the mass murder of people that the Nazi physicians and doctors deemed incurably sick.
Men, women and children with a physical or fysical disability were murdered, or in the words of the nazi doctors, given a "mercyful death".
This was also considered to restore the racial integrity in Germany, eliminating what they thought was "people unworthy of having a life", they also considered them to be a financial burden to the state.

It's estimated that between 200 - 300 000 people were murdered under the program, and in this particular castle, over 18 000 people lost their lives between 1940-41.
The first methods to be used was lethal injections, and sometimes starvation.
Gas chambers would later replace these methods.

In 1945, U.S forces investigated the castle and found a safe, containing the Hartheim statistics, this was a 39-page brochure produced for the internal purposes of the Nazi euthanasia programme, it contained monthly statistics of the murder of mentally and physically handicapped patients carried out in the castle.

The prisoners in the second picture are not connected to Hartheim, but from the Buchenwald concentration camp. Handicapped people could often be sent from the camps, to the institutions.
The fourth picture shows the gas chamber door, and the fifth is said to have been taken when the crematorium was used.
I also included how the crematorium and gas chamber looks like today, the crematorium oven is gone.
The final picture shows the document with Hitler's authorization of the T4 program.

The Indian Legion (Indische Legion), officially the Free India Legion (Legion Freies Indien) or Infantry Regiment 950 (Indian) (Infanterie-Regiment 950 (indisches), I.R. 950) and later the Indian Volunteer Legion of the Waffen-SS (Indische Freiwilligen Legion der Waffen-SS), was a military unit raised during the Second World War in Nazi Germany. Intended to serve as a liberation force for British-ruled India, it was made up of Indian prisoners of war and expatriates in Europe. Because of its origins in the Indian independence movement, it was known also as the "Tiger Legion", and the "Azad Hind Fauj". Initially raised as part of the German Army, it was part of the Waffen-SS from August 1944. Indian independence leader Subhas Chandra Bose initiated the legion's formation, as part of his efforts to win India's independence by waging war against Britain, when he came to Berlin in 1941 seeking German aid. The initial recruits in 1941 were volunteers from the Indian students resident in Germany at the time, and a handful of the Indian prisoners of war who had been captured during the North Africa Campaign. It would later draw a larger number of Indian prisoners of war as volunteers.

TODAY 59 YEARS AGO the first 600 german late retournees of "the last 10.000" arrived in Germany.
On 2nd February 1943 the german "6. Armee" under leading of field marshal Friedrich Paulus capitulated in the Stalingrad pocket. The capitulation happened against Hitlers order to fight to the last man or to commit suicide. So about 108.000 men were captured by Sowjet forces and brought to a war prison in Siberia.
On 8th September '43 the german chancellor Konrad Adenauer flew to Moskau to negotiate the release of the prisoners.

Only 6.000 survived the hunger and coldness.

Since im a history nerd, here is some old and some new history lesson from Munkholmen, an island just outside of Trondheim i visited today. -In the years prior to the founding of the city of Trondheim in 997 by King Olav Tryggvason, Munkholmen had been used as an execution site by the Jarls of Lade. The arrival of Olav Tryggvason to Norway in 995 coincided with a revolt against Haakon Sigurdsson, who was killed by Tormod Kark. The severed heads of both Haakon and Kark were placed on stakes on Munkholmen facing out into the fjord to serve as a warning to visitors. The tradition of displaying the severed heads of criminals and political opponents was continued for some time, but the heads were now placed so that they faced the city of Trondheim to deter its citizens from committing crimes. -Fort and prison:
Construction of a fort on the island began in 1658 following the Swedish siege of Trondheim during the Dano-Swedish War in 1658-1660. When it was completed in 1661, the fort was also used as a state prison for society's rejects. Count Peder Griffenfeld, Munkholmen's most famous prisoner, was transferred from the fortress of Copenhagenin 1671. Griffenfeld was kept at Munkholmen for 18 years, after which he was released, having contracted a terminal illness. From 1700 to 1704, the commander of the fort was Major Curt Christoph von Koppelow. The fort remained in operation until 1893.

German occupation:
Nazi Germany invaded and occupied Norwayin 1940. After capturing Trondheim early on in the Norwegian Campaign, the Germans quickly established a submarine base, exploiting the natural protection provided by the fjord. At this time, Munkholmen was fitted with anti-aircraft weaponry. A large portion of the fort was retrofitted to hold ammunition, and the flooring planks were nailed in with wooden nails to prevent explosions caused by soldiers' boots striking metal nails. The German occupying forces remained in Norway until the end of the war in Europe in May 1945. Remnants of the installation still exist in the upper levels of the fort.

The Quest for Speed
___________________
To the designers of early fighter aircraft; manoeuvrability; range; and firepower were always key points, but in those pioneering days of combat aircraft development, superior speed surely was ultimate the goal in the heart of those creators. To be faster than your opponent; your pursuer; is primal in an evolutionary sense, and not just in the world of machines.
.
📷 The photo I’ve posted is once again one I’ve never seen before, and has a Luftwaffe maintenance crewman buffing and polishing the paintwork on a Bf 109, presumably to enhance the streamline of the fuselage and help get every ounce of speed out of it in the air. On the subject of speed, at the outbreak of WW2, the Messerschmitt Bf 109E-1 was the Luftwaffe’s most important fighter, and had a top level speed of 348mph (560kph) at 16,000ft. By the end of the war after refinements and obviously a far better power plant, the Bf 109K-4, the last mass produced version of Germany’s venerable fighter, had achieved a top level combat speed of about 415mph (668kph), but with a Water-Methanol (MW 50) emergency power boost could reach 440mph (708kph) at 25,000ft.

The pinnacle of piston-engined fighter aircraft development had been reached by 1945, with top level speeds from a couple of models on both sides reaching 450-480mph (724-772kph). Fast yes, but they were already making way for the new kid on the block: the jet fighter. It’s chief advantage once again; speed!

The dashing Luftwaffe fighter ace, Werner Mölders is laid to rest. Today in WW2 history, Nov. 28, 1941. Pictured at the funeral: Hitler’s personal secretary Martin Borman, personal adjutant Julius Schaub (who had been in prison with Hitler in 1923), der grumpy Führer himself, evil physician Karl Brandt, & Luftwaffe field marshal Erhard Milch. Göring gave the eulogy. Mölders was known for his strength of character, his paternal care for his men, & his devout Catholicism (which irritated the Nazis). He demanded that Allied aviators be treated civilly, & would often invite captured pilots to dine with him. Mölders was famous for being the 1st pilot in aviation history to claim 100 aerial victories. He had joined the Luftwaffe in 1934 at the age of 21. In 1938 he volunteered for Spain’s Condor Legion that supported Franco in the Spanish Civil War. In 1939 he defended Germany’s western borders. In 1940 he was shot down over France & taken prisoner. Though beaten by his captors, he asked to shake hands with the pilot who shot him down. By 1941 Mölders was in action on the German Eastern Front for the attack against the Soviet Union. After hitting the 100 victory mark against the Soviets in July of 1941, Mölders was prevented from flying further combat missions for propaganda reasons. Inspecting Luftwaffe units in Crimea this month, Mölders was ordered back to Berlin to attend the state funeral of WWI flying ace Ernst Udet. Udet had committed suicide in despair because he knew Göring was lying to Hitler about the true power of Soviet aviation strength. The suicide was hid. 3/4 of the way back to Berlin for Udet’s funeral, Mölders was a passenger in a plane that crashed attempting to land at Breslau (Wrocław) during a thunderstorm. Mölders was buried next to Udet.
