The British crew of a Matilda tank take a break during the fighting near Tobruk, North Africa, November 1941.
#funfacts: Matilda tanks would also be given to the USSR. They liked the armour and the planetary gear box system intrigued them, but they were not so positive about it's slow speed and weak armament.

I wanted to take some time to cover American patterns during WWII. From what I've seen, the "Frog Skin" pattern was issued as the first attempt of disruptive camouflage in 1942 with the Marine Raiders. The pattern consisted of a five color variation of green and a three color variation of browns. "Frog Skin" was primarily used in the Pacific Theater, but saw limited use in the Normandy campaign primarily to its' similarity to the Erbsenmuster "Dot 44" pattern and other various patterns by the Germans.

A wounded US Marine holding the piece of shrapnel that was removed from his neck in the invasion of Iwo Jima, February 20, 1945.

Iwo Jima ( (February 19-March 26, 1945) was the only Marine battle where the American casualties, 26,000, exceeded the Japanese -- most of the 22,000 defending the island. 6,800 American servicemen were killed.

Operation Market Garden was one of the largest Allied operations of the Second World War. It aimed to secure the bridges over the rivers Maas (Meuse), Waal and Rhine in the Netherlands in order to outflank the heavy German defences of the Siegfried Line and to insure a swift advance towards Berlin.
Operation Market Garden was one of the largest Allied operations of the Second World War. It took place in September 1944. The goal of the operation was to secure the key bridges over three wide rivers in the Netherlands (Maas/Meuse, Waal and Rhine, respectively) in order to outflank the heavy German defences of the Siegfried Line (Westwall) which protected heartland Germany beyond the Rhine. It was hoped that with a swift advance towards Berlin the war would be over before Christmas.
Market Garden was a risky plan of British Field Marshal Bernard Montgomery. It was executed by 41.628 English, American and Polish airborne troops and three divisions on the ground. 
The operation consisted of two parts. Operation Market was the largest airborne operation in the history of warfare. Operation Garden was the campaign on the ground of the 30th Corps aimed at securing the bridges captured by the airborne forces.
The operation was highly ambitious and in the end it failed due to weather conditions and heavy German opposition, especially near Arnhem. But there were more causes of failure: The airborne drop zones were situated too far from the Nijmegen and Arnhem bridges. Combined with communication problems, the laborious advance of the ground troops and a few mistakes by the high commanders in the final days of the operation, they led to failure in the end. After the successful Battle of Nijmegen the Allies did not manage to take the last bridge in Arnhem: the proverbial ‘Bridge Too Far’.

During World War II, U.S. Major General Henry C. Pratt issues Public Proclamation No. 21, declaring that, effective January 2, 1945, Japanese American “evacuees” from the West Coast could return to their homes.
On February 19, 1942, 10 weeks after the Japanese bombed Pearl Harbor, U.S. President Franklin D. Roosevelt signed Executive Order 9066, authorizing the removal of any or all people from military areas “as deemed necessary or desirable.” The military in turn defined the entire West Coast, home to the majority of Americans of Japanese ancestry or citizenship, as a military area. By June, more than 110,000 Japanese Americans were relocated to remote internment camps built by the U.S. military in scattered locations around the country. For the next two and a half years, many of these Japanese Americans endured extremely difficult living conditions and poor treatment by their military guards.
During the course of World War II, 10 Americans were convicted of spying for Japan, but not one of them was of Japanese ancestry. In 1988, President Ronald Reagan signed a bill to recompense each surviving internee with a tax-free check for $20,000 and an apology from the U.S. government. #WWII #japaneseamerican #internmentcamps #americanhistory #drinkinbroshistorybuff

One of Hollywood’s first superstars would today be referred to as a male sex-symbol. He was also of Asian decent. Sessue Hayakawa (1889-1973) with his smouldering looks, often played a villain which made his fans love him more. Rivalling Fairbanks, Chaplin and Barrymore’s level of fame, his success was made more remarkable due to an interracial screen romance being so taboo at the time. In fact it was part of his appeal. Born in Japan, bursting an eardrum on a swimming dare prevented him from war service. Ashamed he tried to commit harakiri. Saved by his barking dog and his father he would come to America to study economics. A talented footballer in university he drifted into acting in Los Angeles and then films. Making his debut in Ince’s “The Tycoon” it was in DeMille’s “The Cheat” a smash that made him a star playing the first of many “forbidden lovers” or villains. Disenchanted with his typecasting despite his huge success he turned down Valentino’s role in “The Sheik” to form his own production company which would make him one of the top earning stars - around $2M a year - at that time. With fans dropping their coats in puddles for him to cross, driving his Pierce-Arrow and known for throwing the wildest parties of his day, by the mid 20’s his star had diminished so he left Hollywood for Europe with success. Coming back to Hollywood opposite Wong in the “talkie” “Daughter of the Dragon“, failed so he went back to France where he stayed separated from his family during the occupation. Hollywood remembered him when Bogart wanted him for “Tokyo Joe.” Roles followed in “Three Came Home”, “House of Bamboo”, his brilliant Oscar nominated “honorable villain” Colonel Saito in Lean’s “The Bridge on the River Kwai”, the crowning achievement of his career, “The Geisha Boy” and Disney’s “Swiss Family Robinson.” He said. “All my life has been a journey. But my journey differs from the journeys of most men. My one ambition is to play a hero.” This Zen Buddhist master, a French resistance member in WWII, painter and acting coach had in fact always been a hero throughout his remarkable journey. #japan #1889 #sessuehayakawa #hero #idol #heartthrob #moviestar #silentmovie
