Тяжелый танк ИС-2 у стен поверженного Рейхстага.
⠀
Тяжёлый танк ИС-2 – один из самых известных и удачных образцов бронетехники СССР военного периода. Этот танк, с честью прошедший все тяготы заключительного этапа Великой Отечественной Войны, в то время по некоторым качествам превосходил все аналоги, а позже стал родоначальником послевоенных советских тяжёлых танков. Примечательно, что в отличие от большинства танков, созданных в середине войны, ИС-2 остался в строю долгие годы, пережив даже более современные машины, которые должны были его заменить.

А Вы знаете как расшифровывается ИС?.

This abandoned Japanese Type A Ko-Hyoteki midget submarine on Kiska islands is on of the many silent witnesses of the Aleutian Islands campaign in WW2.

The Aleutian Islands campaign was a military campaign conducted by the United States and Japan in the Aleutian Islands, part of the Territory of Alaska, in the American theater and the Pacific theater of World War II starting on June 3, 1942. In the only two invasions of the United States during the war, a small Japanese force occupied the islands of Attu and Kiska, where the remoteness of the islands and the challenges of weather and terrain delayed a larger US-Canadian force sent to eject them for nearly a year. The islands' strategic value was their ability to control Pacific transportation routes, which is why US General Billy Mitchell stated to the US Congress in 1935,

The islands' strategic value was their ability to control Pacific transportation routes, which is why US General Billy Mitchell stated to the US Congress in 1935, "I believe that in the future, whoever holds Alaska will hold the world. I think it is the most important strategic place in the world." The Japanese reasoned that control of the Aleutians would prevent a possible U.S. attack across the Northern Pacific. Similarly, the U.S. feared that the islands would be used as bases from which to carry out a full-scale aerial attack on US West Coast cities like Anchorage, Seattle, Portland, or Los Angeles. ----------------------------------------------- #historygeek #historydaily #ww2 #worldwar2 #ww2history #historyfacts #ww2photos #ww2daily #ww2pic #ww2pics #nowandthen #thenandnow #ww2inphotos #wwiihistory #wwiifacts #secondworldwar #kiska #aleutianislands ...

A crowd is listening to Mussolini giving a speech on the Piazza del Plebiscito in the city of Naples on October 24, 1931.

Benito Amilcare Andrea Mussolini was an Italian politician and journalist who was the leader of the National Fascist Party. He ruled Italy as the prime minister from 1922 to 1943; he constitutionally led the country until 1925, when he dropped the pretense of democracy and established a dictatorship. Mussolini inspired several totalitarian rulers, such as Adolf Hitler. ------------------------------------------------
