Launched on the 26th June, 1944, during the Battle of Normandy, Operation Epsom (aka the First Battle of the Odon) was a British offensive designed to seize the then German occupied city of Caen, France. Operation Epsom took place between the 26 and 30 June, 1944, and was a major Allied objective designed to outfox the Germans. The plan was to encircle the German defenders around Caen by sweeping round to the west and south of Caen to reach the main Caen-Falaise road. The attack was carried out by General O'Connor's VIII Corps (11th Armoured, 15th Scottish) and 43rd (Wessex) Divisions), which was part of the follow-up force that landed in Normandy after D-Day. Most of the 60,000 soldiers under O’Connor’s command were inexperienced and for many of them Epsom was their first experience of battle. British General, Montgomery, had originally planned to start the Epsom offensive on the 18th June, but unfortunately at that point only one of O’Connor’s divisions had reached Normandy. Poor weather also meant that the Allies could only land a fraction of supplies they needed. This delay enabled the Germans to place the powerful 2nd SS Panzer Corps, led by experienced General Hausser, in Normandy by the 26th June. The Battle Visibility in the Normandy countryside was poor and the campaign continued to be plagued by bad weather, which brought thick mist and rain causing cancellation of useful Bomber support. It also made the ground very boggy and awkward to operate in. Operation Epsom began with early attacks to secure lines of advance with the units of the 15th (Scottish) Infantry Division advancing behind a three hour long artillery barrage - this was supported by naval guns from the fleet off the beaches. The tanks of the 31st Tank Brigade accompanied the 15th Scottish who made steady progress, but that didn’t stop the Germans from putting up a strong, defensive fight. As the troops got closer to the Odon River the scene got more and more dangerous and securing the flanks was difficult.[...]
This image taken on October 25th, 1944 during the Battle of Leyte Gulf shows Japanese sailors of the aircraft carrier Zuikaku as they salute their flag as it is being lowered on their sinking ship. Others are also seen raising their fists while letting out one final: "Banzai!" as their ship is lost to the ocean. The Zuikaku, the last survivor of the six Japanese aircraft carriers that launched the planes which attacked the American naval base at Pearl Harbor on December 7th, 1941 and brought the United States into World War II, would ultimately take 842 souls with her out of a crew of over 2,000. ____________________________ #worldwar2 #worldwartwo #1940s #battleofleytegulf #zuikaku #japanesehistory #americanhistory #ushistory #worldwarii #worldwar2history #war #history #historical #historic #warhistory #axis #americainww2 #japaninww2 #allies #historiansunion #united_historians #warphotography #warphotos #soldiers #historybuff #historynerd #stopcensoringopposingviews #youcannotcensorhistory

Just one of the many faces of war. This officer has a 2 piece ribbon bar (not shown) which is incredibly blurry and I am unable to determine what the medals are. _________________________________ Follow My Brothers: @wwiigermanrelicss (RIP) @the_ww1enthusiasts @wwii_photos_firearms @chaotic_panzer 🇺🇸Tag A Friend! _________________________________ #worldwar2 #worldwartwo #worldwarii #worldwar2history #war #history #warhistory #axis #allies #americainww2 #history #franceinww2 #warphotography #warphotos #combat #soldiers #axishistory #alliedhistory #historybuff #historynerd

A picture of Omaha beach at d-day. •Omaha beach was an American sector and by far the most heavily defended. • I apologize for lack of posts, I’ve been awfully busy.

Il 26 giugno 1940, dopo cinque giorni di ricovero nell'ospedale di Pinerolo moriva il Sergente Maggiore Ferruccio Ferrari, aveva solo 22 anni. Era stato ricoverato a seguito delle gravissime ferite, subite durante il terribile bombardamento dei mortai francesi da 280 mm del forte italiano di Chaberton, il forte più alto d'Europa. Nel corso dell'azione militare gli italiani accusarono nove morti, alla cui memoria vennero assegnate 3 medaglie d' argento e 6 medaglie di bronzo e oltre 50 feriti. Fra di essi vi era anche il Sergente Maggiore Ferrari. Il militare cuneese benché gravemente ferito, cedeva la barella ai propri commilitoni. Alla sua memoria verrà concessa la Medaglia d'Oro al Valor Militare alla memoria con la seguente motivazione: Sottufficiale artigliere G. a F., all’inizio delle ostilità lasciava volontariamente l’ufficio contabilità per salire al forte ed assumere il comando di un pezzo. Durante violentissimo e preciso tiro di controbatteria nemica, pur conscio dell’inesorabile sorte della sua torre, con l’esempio animava i serventi del suo stesso magnifico slancio. Colpita in pieno la torre, lui stesso ustionato e mortalmente ferito, con sovrumano sforzo e sublime altruismo salvava dal rogo quanti più serventi poteva e cedeva ai suoi soldati feriti la barella che gli toccava per turno. Lasciava poi il forte incitando e gridando ai compagni la consegna del Duce. Nel delirio dell’agonia una sola visione illuminava il supremo olocausto: il fuoco del suo cannone per la vittoria e la grandezza della Patria. Luminoso esempio di eroismo e di fede. Forte Chaberton, 21 giugno 1940.
