I was at Stalingrad with Paulus 6th Army and I ate OP's grandfather on death march to gulag.
Great Cousin Erik was in the Afrika Corps

You fuck this was war time. A lot of American soldiers wouldn't want to take a POW because supplies were scarce. There were plenty of them who would shoot a person like this no matter what the people glorifying the U.S. say.

mfw those jews in that train want to play too
Who left the bowl of onions here?
>Russian Ukraine crisis, Germany is in the middle of its crosshairs.
is it? how? why? since when?
>op claims his grandfather was at stalingrad
of the tens of thousands of german soldiers taken prisoner by the soviets at stalingrad only a few thousand ever returned to germany, and general paulus was probably not granting a lot of passes for enlisted personnel before the 6th was encircled and eating their horses
>op claims his grandfather was captured by canadian (british) soldiers
if he was he would be been interned, likely tried for war crimes if he was an officer, and held as a prisoner of war until the armistice.
also canadian units were not involved in the battle/fall of berlin
The US in it's todays Form inherits a whole lot of Nazi fantasies. They just put a new paintjob on em.
Still just my opinion, high Lord and savior!
Now go be exceptional somewhere else!
>>he endured freezing temperatures and trudged through knee high snow

A friend of mine is from Northern Wisconsin. This was everyday going to school.
Your grandfather wasn't a hero. He was some shithead machine gunning poor Jewish dirt farmers stealing their chickens.

he didnt have to worry about getting shot
well thats the least thing, murricans just came to claim victory so they could bitch about it, it boils my blood when i hear we saved your asses, the war would end even without fucking murricans, its shame that somebody didn't nuked them already
sry, it didn't happen. i kno cuz i was there.
if he was there to the end at Stalingrad then he would have been in the pow gulag in Siberia until 1956 like my opa
even if he got out he would not have been in Normandy
1938 Hitler Youth Knife, missing insignia
Respect. I'm also Canadian from german descent. My great grandmothers 2 brothers were in the schutzstaffel. Unfortunately they died. That's all I have. I did find a nazi song book at my grandmothers house one time. I still have it somewhere.
>"Now anon, when your classmates insult you for being half German..."
>"Remind them that you are half Canadian too..."
>"And tell them you're sorry."
yeah... like how we saved all the European colonies in the pacific with minuscule Australian New Zealand assistance. Like how England had 4 months of fuel left for its military. Like without America in the war japan would have turned its attention to Russia and the second Russo japanses war a war on two fronts against the Soviet Union. No lend Lease to everyone... no food for the U.K... the list goes on. I can cite if you so desire tommorow
1938 Captured Mosin Nagant with soviet stamping and year marking.

I had my suspicions for some time about it actually.
I can confirm that this is a reproduction of a M35 Stalhelm

Ya, I totally give a fuck about your sausage anal-stuffing piece of shit old Nazi grandpa that would love to force billions to learn your syrup-in-mouth language and kill 90% of the people that pretty much encourage research which benefits both the sick and medically fit lawl.

I will definitely look into this, thank you for bringing it to my attention
I will also show the reproduction flag I bought for $10 because I can

lel just remember scrub I still outrank you.
Now do us a favor and search up "allied war crimes in WWII" Just to give you an idea of what the US did, MG Raymond Huft, USA said that if the US had lost the war, he "would have been on trial at Nuremberg". At Audouville-la-Hubert alone, 30 German POWs were executed by members of the US Airborne infantry.
Op's story total bullshit. His granddad just 'happens' to be present at every turningpoint of the war, including stalingrad, which statistically should have left hun dead, or at least in russian captivity. Either op or his grandfather was a lying shit.
As an American, I'm not a Nazi fan, but damn that hit the feels. There's nothing wrong with being proud of serving your country. My respect to your grandfather, and sorry he finally kicked the bucket. Hopefully post-war was alright for the man.
awh is a PFC mad that he wasn't good enough to get into a college and have the navy pay for it? it's okay PFC, there are a lot more like you.
What's the difference between an LT and an enlisted man?
I have a plan and a degree to work with after service.
Mahfucka makin' me look for a sharpie and some paper, what's wrong with you?
Technically you outrank the real soldiers and Marines, true, but you're just a check in the box. The only worthwhile brass I served with were mustangs. And tell a snco you outrank him in the Marine Corps and he'll laugh in you're face and tell you you can climb up his chevrons for a salute. Have some respect boot. You think you're legit because of your fucking degree? Lol
I don't know whether to cry or be happy for OP's purpose in life.
I heard this one on /k/ about a guys grandfather who climbed the side of a small mountain to reach a plateau to take out the Japanese on the otherside something like that in the pacific.
They used just ropes and very little climbing equipment to scale this, they had to be quiet in the dead of night to not be heard, silence was the main part of this mission. A few guys fell from climbing and they remained silent as they fell to their deaths because they knew if they yelled it would danger the Americans who arrived on the beach just moments beforehand.
Navy paid for it? Sorry you went to Annapolis and didn't make the cut to be a Marine. I'm out now, making awesome bah from the gi bill, and 70% disability! since I actually did something. You on the other hand, likely will never get a combat action ribbon. Keep being an arrogant pussy sir.
Germany is one of the largest countries (population-wise) in the EU and the most productive economically. They also contribute a lot to military defense. As such, they do dictate a lot of how the EU economy works and are pretty much the face of EU when enacting foreign policy.
And who was Ukraine signing a treaty with when all that shit went down in Crimea?
hahaha worthwhile brass? I tell you to do something and you don't do it I can end your Marine career right fucking there. If I had a fucking Marine like you in my platoon I'd whoop his fucking ass into the ground and have some corporal come over and pick up his fucking bones
If america militarily and strategically captured a city using its own manufactured weapons and supplies, using raw russian materials and supplies for manufacturing purposes (all soviet machinery that comes to mind was manufactured in the USSR, ppsh, katusha, t-34, etc.), america WOULD claim that victory. It boggles my mind why we take credit for the European theatre at all, the Soviet Union did a dizzying amount of the bloody work, and without them, the war would certainly have been lost. Battle like Stalingrad, Kursk, or the Bagration offensive were all supreme and decisive events in the war, executed by the Soviet Union.
dun give a fuck. i work in a canteen at base borden in canada. you fuckin officers get a little bit extra spit in all your food. all the nco's get the fresh ingrediants. i aint in the army so i dont give two fucks about you and your power trip about a bar or what ever on your shoulder
>mfw Americans squabbling is ruining memory of OP's Papa
Daily reminder that the Soviet Union won WW2.
2/3 of the Wehrmacht fought on the Eastern Front. 80% of German casualties were caused by the Red Army.
The great contribution of the British was bombing the shit out of German civilians. By D-Day, the Germans were already retreating on the Eastern Front.
American lend-lease, which supposedly "saved" the Soviets' "asses" made up a whopping 4% of total Soviet equipment, mostly consisting in trucks, not weapons.
What about the Japanese?
In 1945, the Red Army blitzkrieged Manchuria, capturing 600,000 Japanese soldiers, killing 80,000, while losing less than 10,000 men. The Kwantung army was chased out of mainland China and forced to retreat to the main island.
The decision to drop the bomb was made mainly to secure a fast victory and prevent a Communist Japan.
In the Battle of Stalingrad alone, more Germans died than in all the battles fought by Britain and America combined.
The Red Army and the Soviet people won WW2. Contribution to the war effort by the other Allies was minimal.
Deal with it.
I didn't say they're all worthless, just that when I was a cpl, sergeant at an age that they were still sweating finals meant something to them, and they had respect. I saluted them, called them sir, but that's about all they're good for. The squad leaders and fire team leaders are the real leadership. If you don't respect that, then I feel bad for your guys.

childish fanstasy or plausible fiction?
Fuck OP's papa, based on his adventures, he probably raped and murdered Slavic qt's because that's all German soldiers did in Russia other than die. Papa probably lied and likely deserves no honor.
the fuckers get here from st. john and think they are king shit of turd mountain and treat everybody who isnt army like shit. so yea fuck officers. the nco guys are okay its like they understand that other people arnmt justy there to serve them.
St John? lel if a new officer from anywhere did that in the US he'd get his shit handed to him
if you mean enlisted no. MOS 1802 is the MOS for officers applying to get into the armor corps
hey OP, my grandpa fought against the nazis and he was captured and put into 3 different concentrations camps because of your faggot race. luckily, germans are shit and he escaped all of them and lived to tell the tale, but fuck you guys for starting the war that got almost all of his friends and himself killed. nobody will ever like you german nazis and that's just how it will be, so suck it up and gtfo.
i bet its the same at every base. the officers treating civvies like shit. i only stay for 25 dollar an hour mac and chesse cooking job. those cunts make it almost not worthwhile. plus the hour long walk to work everyday
You need to stop posting.
I sincerely hope you're a well informed troll.
No one ever taught you to regard your troops his way.
And truly, a 2lt doesn't know a damn thing.
But you should know better than this.
Stop tarnishing your rank.
bet they had the money to pay for those workers too, right ?
I think he's a faggot liar. Tank officers in the navy/mc don't go to benning as far as I know. And he's probably just drunk or something, he'd be instantly ostracized if he ever talked shit to a Sergeant.
Ok queer, where were those soviet factories? Who provided them with the technical equipment and technique to build all the things you listed?
How do you build a t34 without Bessemer steel, cockfag?
Quit your childish nationalist cheerleading and go open a book.
The Americans enabled the soviets to fight, and if the Japanese would have had a free hand to open up another front against them, they would have beyond a shadow of a doubt been utterly conquered.
But they manufactured in the east instead of fought, which allowed them to beat back Germany.
The Soviets would have lost utterly without heavy deliberate American guidance and support.
OP, Germany wouldn't have needed to defend itself against russia if it didn't invade and kill millions in the first place. The Russian conquest and sack of berlin was literal historic justice and revenge, and made the two countries even. Didn't your pap feel like a hypocrite for heroically defending his home city after trying to loot and massecre in a city that had nothing to do with him? Seriously fuck Nazi Germany. Forcing their disgusting ideology by slaughtering innocents and then getting venerated by edgy teens and delirious old men. At least the communists weren't picky about race, and made Germany their bitch regardless.
"He confronted a well-dressed Jew on the streets before the rescue and asked him how he came to be free.
"I'm not like those stupid ones in the camp who opposed Hitler," said the man, as Fujita recalls it. "I work with the Nazis, and I'm fat and happy and I smoke good cigars.""
from what got im my history classes in highschool, the brits just sent us where they knew nobody else would win. also 9 times outta ten when a succesful artillary barrage happend it was canadian troops manning the guns... holy fuck we were the imperial guard of WW2 but without the retared number of losses like the russians
You wouldn't know because you still live with your mother after 42 years and playing videogames all day you filthy basement dweller. Go contribute to society for once you useless NEET.
Isn't it a little silly that the scraps of recognition you're fighting for in the name of the USA is around 4% of total soviet industrial output? The Soviets crushed the Germans, and when they put their attention on the Japanese, they shattered them with relative ease (see Manchuria). It's just facts mate, we don't need to take credit from a worthy ally. The fact that the US and Russia are not historical friends and bretheren is rather upsetting to me.

My grandfather was a partisan in Yugoslavia during the war.
> mfw he was a Communist
> mfw he killed a bunch of nyemtsiy
When he found out I was taking German in high school (third year), the first words out of his mouth:
> Heil Hitler.
OP is a faggot, but, I would gladly fight alongside or against you, Deutscher.
Ich moechte gern mit dir zu trinken.
Did he say that?
Then he's some tool trying to make officers look bad.
Navy sends no one to tanks, and Marines send 100% of their tank officers to the army school at Knox, after 7 months of TBS, after 12 weeks of OCS.
At both of these schools, he is constantly taught the value of a strong NCO, and given advice by strong SNCOs in how to earn the loyalty and respect of his Marines.
Nothing on Earth will convince me this idiot is a Marine Lieutenant, except an image of his commission with a time stamp and more of his idiocy.
But if he does that, he might find out some perhaps surprising oldfags check out /b/ from time to time, that haven't worn a gold bar in a long time.
>> many many many prejudices and racism against his family because they were germans
Oh the shame of it it.
But why anon, why were they so prejudiced against the german people, it's almost unfathomable.
>>bullied in history class because I'm of German descent
>bullied for being German
Are you sure it wasn't just because you are a faggot?
>Paris got taken again
Go ahead and post a reputable source that undermines the material support of the U.S. to this degree. I want the 4% number in there too, because you sound full of shit.
Still holding up that a Barbarossa pincer from the east, cutting off the pacific, and the Siberian manufacturing, wouldn't have totally undermined the soviets? Have any barely compelling strategic explanation for that idea?
Or are we saying that conscripts with Mosins would have done just as well, regardless.
Come correct, this is boring.
Feels like -16
I didn't realize that it was this cold until I was halfway down the street to the liquor store earlier. (Packie)
He came from a backwater Albanian village. He joined up when he was around twenty. Left my grandmother who was his childhood sweetheart.
He was buddy-buddy with a few of the high-ranking partisans, but, they were always poorly equipped.
He didn't even have a weapon or proper clothing so he told me that after any altercation, they would have to scavenge.
> He would literally slip the boots off of a dead German and wear them
"Best clothing I've ever worn."
Only picture I have of him.
He's still alive, actually.
I just never see him and there's a language barrier.
