World War Two - The Land War
Not too much in my land war section just now as I have been extremely busy in the Sea War section. I hope to add more items in here in the not too distant future.
The American invasion plans for Japan. In the event that the US would actually have had to invade the Japanese mainland. The dropping of the Atomic bombs clearly showed that millions of lives, on both sides, were saved by this seemingly catastrophic event.
|The "Invasion" of America. Or how Americans panicked when a Jap submarine shelled a Santa Barbara oilfield for personal revenge!|
|El Alamein - The decisive and war turning battle of 1942|
|Operation Claymore - Raid on the German occupied Lofoten Islands.|
|My Uncle Cyril - memorial to my uncle who died just before El Alamein.|
|Oradour sur Glane. The massacre of an entire village on 10 July 1944 by elements of "Das Reich" SS Division. In retaliation for French Resistance kidnap and sabotage in the area. Its is suspected that the SS got the "wrong village" ?|
The Capture of Tiger 131. The first Tiger to be captured intact in April 1943
