Cool posts, wish I had more to help out but only have these two.
saved, I like that style, anon, I have some of the same genre which I will dump here
great feedback, thanks, glad you like them, I'll dump more.
I've got a treat for you
These are god-tier, man.
I hadn't even considered this as a /wg style before!
Thanks. I have attached what I think is a better quality version of OP.
Thanks for your comments, they made my day. So glad to find other anons also love this style.
Mort Kunstler is the artist for most of what I posted. In addition to pulp fiction artwork, Kunstler also painted many Confederate War scenes, and historical moments in Americana, like pic related - the golden spike ceremony of the Transcontinental railroad

This is the funniest one. What is that lady doing with that gun? Is she discouraging this action before her? Supporting it? Either way, that guy is getting thrown. Meanwhile the Asian guy in the back is like "Fuck this, I'll throw myself off. I'm not even fucking with this whole scene"
Glad to see so much positive response here.

Pulp fiction bad guys were usually Nazi villains because uniforms looked so good in artwork. Pulp fiction writers loved to put Nazis in settings where they would be surrounded by beautiful women, the more exotic, the better. Latin America is a common location because of all the dangerous jungle wildlife that make good pulp fiction, like gators, lobsters, giant frogs, snakes, lizards, bears, wild cats, and so on. It's easy to imagine Nazis roaming the jungles of Latin America in search of temples and treasure, just like in Indiana Jones. After all, there are ancient pyramids in the rain forest, and some of the Nazis did go to Latin America after the war.
From what I've seen or read, Adolf Hitler and the top Nazi leadership (Himmler and Hess, particularly) were big believers in the occult. They sent out expeditions all over the planet with teams of researchers, including astrologists, historians, archaeologists, and scientists, to seek out ancient treasures that might possess some sort of supernatural powers, including the Holy Grail and the Ark of the Covenant. Google Nazi+occult for lots more info.
There are all sorts of legends about Nazi connections to UFOs and extraterrestrial technology. John Lear, the son of Bill Lear, the creator of Lear jets, is very outspoken about how much tech he believes the Nazis got from UFOs, and he points to the Nazi invention of jet airplane and V2 rocket as evidence of his claim. Very easy to dismiss as /x/ tinfoil hat lunacy, but the guy is a very wealthy and highly educated person, and he is the FAA's most certified pilot ever, so he does have amazing credentials. Google John Lear for more info.
It's sort of funny to see how far out there some of the pulp fiction stories can be, and then you find out that there are historical anecdotes that are true and even more extreme than the fictional ones.
>From what I've seen or read, Adolf Hitler and the top Nazi leadership (Himmler and Hess, particularly) were big believers in the occult.
Not completely correct, my dear anon. Only one who really digged the occult (and the term is somewhat debatable) was Himmler and a few high-ranking Algemeine-SS officials. Hess was too interested, but not as much as Himmler and was mostly not proactive in this interest.
Hitler was completely different, guy was very cold about the occultism, mostly did not cared and sometimes even made remarks about Himmler being irresponsible about it. If anything, Hitler was a very pragmatic and down to earth about the occultism, even though he displayed interest to learn about it's basic themes before the war.

Also for the OP and all of you dumping pictures - guys, this is seriously the best thread in a months. Thank you so very much. When I was a kid, those pictures were rare as fuck here in the Eastern Europe and I collected some of them from various magazines. Inb4: I'm not that old, we were just a bit behind the rest of the world in the 80-90s.
thanks for replying with a book suggestion, Eastern European-anon. Check this out:
>The Holy Lance (German: Heilige Lanze), also known as the Holy Spear, the Spear of Destiny, or the Lance of Longinus, is the name given to the lance that pierced the side of Jesus as he hung on the cross, according to the Gospel of John. Several churches across the world claim to possess this lance.
>Trevor Ravenscroft's 1973 book, The Spear of Destiny (as well as a later book, The Mark of the Beast), claims that Adolf Hitler started World War II in order to capture the spear, with which he was obsessed. At the end of the war the spear came into the hands of US General George S. Patton. According to legend, losing the spear would result in death, and that was fulfilled when Hitler committed suicide and Patton died in a car accident in an army camp.
Thank you anon for the reply. I love this legend, one of the most interesting of all for me, together with the Vril stuff.
If you would have a way around here, you can check pretty awesome old nazi tunnels and underground systems around here - most of the stuff have also some legends about them, some even about the old nazi forbidden tech. Love the stuff.
Have a nice day, anon - I really like this thread and people here.
Yeah, it is sort of local classic. There are people who "find" either nazi gold or other treasure at least two times a year. Funny part is that it is always denied by the government few weeks later, which sparks unending conspiracy theories - until there is a new treasure "found".
Those two were Polish and that train is one of the biggest and oldest legend around here. There is even a Wiki article.
But what is interesting about Walbrzych, is the Nazi mausoleum above the city. Pic related. That "Totenburg" should have some serious occult background and is still standing - you can even see some swastikas through the whole place and other stuff. Check it out, it might interest you.

I love how much is going on in that pic
Don't have anything to say about the dive bombing sea plane; but those "jap jets" are mxy-7 ohka's, rocket powered kamikaze aircraft.
did a bit of research on them about seven years ago. Here's the Wikipedia page if you're interested. https://www.wikipedia.org/wiki/Yokosuka_MXY7_Ohka

About the image: Guardians of the North by Mort Kunstler
>Alaska -- 1968 -- Since the seventeenth century, the National Guard has provided units for the first-line defense of the nation. The Scout Battalions of the 297th Infantry, Alaska Army National Guard, composed mostly of Eskimos, continue this historic mission. Supported by the 176th Tactical Airlift Group, Alaska Air National Guard, the Scout Battalions patrol the vast Alaskan tundra. The battalions were organized during World War II and given the mission of providing early warning in case of an enemy landing. Just as they have done since 1942, the Scouts operate from small villages in Northern and Western Alaska, constantly observing the Bering Sea coastline and often providing significant intelligence information. Like their colonial predecessors, the Scouts of the 297th Infantry and the airmen of the 176th Tactical Airlift Group continue to defend their community, state, and nation.
