On this day in #1942 #WaltDisney releases #Bambi. Bambi was released in theaters in 1942, during World War II, and was Disney's 5th full-length animated film. At the time of the film's release, Bambi received mixed reviews from the critics, mainly because of the lack of fantasy elements in the film and objection towards a dramatic story of animals and their struggle to survive in the woods and avoid the threat of humans. Bambi lost money at the box office for its first release; out of its $1.7 million budget, it only grossed back $1.64 million. Today, however, Bambi is viewed as a classic and recouped a considerable amount during the 1947 re-release and subsequent re-issues. The off-screen villain "Man" has been placed No. 20 on AFI's List of Heroes and Villains.

Very fascinating picture of 5 Heer soldiers wearing different models of the feldbluse. Can you identify the differences?

Началась героическая оборона Ленинграда на ближних подступах
В директиве, подписанной 21 августа Гитлером, снова подчёркивалось, что из всех задач, которые надлежит решить до взятия Москвы, одной из важнейших является захват Ленинграда и соединение с финнами. Ради достижения этой цели враг бросил на Ленинград огромные силы.

The entrance to Sachsenhausen concentration camp. It's the largest concentration camp in Germany. Originally it was a labour camp, but later became a death camp.
It was males only, and the prisoners had all their hair shaved off which was used to stuff their "pillows" and "mattresses". Their teeth were pulled, grounded and added into fertilizer.
It was chilling just knowing that I was walking where thousands of tortured prisoners walked years ago. ///

Hugo Jaeger is the former personal photographer of Adolf Hitler. He travelled with Hitler in the years leading up to and throughout World War II and took around 2,000 colour photographs of the Austrian-born German politician. Jaeger was one of the few photographers who were using color photography techniques at the time.

After the success of Operation Cobra (July 25-31, 1944) there was a shift in tactics. It was no longer congested hedgerow fighting, but rapid maneuver warfare. By August 13, the Allied advance was so rapid that the Allies were beginning to completely encircle the German Seventh Army. The encirclement was happening between the towns of Falaise and Chambois. With the British from the north and Americans coming up and around the bottom from the south, the responsibility of closing the pocket rested on the Canadian forces, which were going slow. On August 18, the American 90th Infantry Division "Tough Ombres" and Polish 1st Armored division met at the town of Chambois, the Gap was closed. The Pocket was small, about 6 miles deep and about 7 miles wide. The Allied Forces used their superior air power to bombard the Germans inside, and even set up airfields around the pocket so that the planes could refuel and rearm and be back to bombing the Germans in a matter of minutes. By the end of the first day after setting up these airfields, Allied pilots made a total of 1,471 flights over the gap. By Monday Aug. 21, the pocket had been defeated. More than 50,000 Germans were taken prisoner. Inside the pocket, It was a hellscape. For miles, it was nothing but destroyed panzers and bodies of German soldiers. The corpses of 10,000 Germans were left in the spots which they fell and another 2,000 horses lay dead in the August sun. Even pilots of aircraft flying overhead could smell the stench of the decomposing bodies. General Eisenhower commented, “You could walk for 100 yards only stepping on bodies.” #WWII #WorldWarII #WW2 #WorldWar2

"Erika" (or "Auf der Heide blüht ein kleines Blümelein" ("On the Heath a Little Flower Blooms") was a marching song of the German military. The song was composed by Herms Niel in the 1930s, and it soon came into usage by the Wehrmacht, especially the Heer and, to a lesser extent, the Kriegsmarine. The theme of the song is based on "Erika" being both a common German female name and the German word for heather. In itself, the song has no military themes, beyond the fact that the narrator (evidently a soldier, though this is not explicitly stated) is away from his beloved and recalls her when seeing the plant which has the same name.

Wrapping up this book and I'm sad to put it down. Luke teased me because I was actually trying to put into practice the rowing techniques from the book when he and I took the canoe out recently, which isn't really possible, but I still enjoyed pretending. I'm so glad they included the old black and white photos of the team and Olympic preparations! I definitely recommend the read! #storiesandpictures #theboysintheboat #bookclub #goodreads #history #wwii #greatdepression #rowing #thatsdarling #thehappynow
