  2. WW2 MEMORIAL COMPLEX IN KIEV For all like-minded history admirers, who have previously paid attention to my Poland-2018 historical trip I am excited to share a new material about one of the largest WW2 memorial complexes and museum worldwide with a total collection of 400 000 exhibit units. Within this detailed material I would like to invite you to make a virtual tour along with all the main sites, museums and statues of the WW2 Memorial complex in Kiev, Ukraine, my native land. Also, I would try to fill the gap between my English-speaking readers and the names, notions, connected with the Eastern front, USSR, Ukraine, to detail into the historiography of Kiev in the Second World War. I hope this, in some sense ‘unobvious’ Ukrainian military tour would have no fewer interest that the previous ones. I would be looking forward to your feedback and questions as it drives me to work days and weeks on every article to share with you. https://war-documentary.info/ww2-memorial-kiev/

Many stayed there but after eight campaigns they were made heroes of the Soviet Union.This group still exists and continues this tradition of fighting and defending for France.Those who were still honored in Russia every year. 🇫🇷

  5. It is known that the weapons at the disposal of Russia have always been the most reliable, powerful and killing in the world. And, of course, just as time does not stand still, so does the development of the defense system. Thus, a new «Boomerang» combat platform appeared in service of the Russian army, which many experts already called the best armored personnel carrier in the world: «this is speed, protection and modularity». Moreover, enhanced armor allows protecting the crew from mines, land mines, shelling with large-caliber weapons. Active protection built into the upper hemisphere is able to protect the machine from anti-tank missiles and projectiles. With the help of modules on the «Boomerang» it is possible to install a machine gun, a 30-mm or 57-mm cannon, and even a 100-mm gun, and the speed and maneuverability of this machine allows quickly move and deploy units in the right area. Furthermore, it is armed with four «Kornet» complexes, with a range of up to 10 km, which may well hit a tank. Also, it is possible to unload the landing party from the stern, and not from the side hatches, as was the case in the former BTR-80. Also, it is impossible to disregard the development of the T-14 tank, which in the USA was called a revolution in tank building, and also reported that NATO has no competitor among the combat vehicles. Thus, the observer of the American publishing house of «The National Interest», Mark Episcopos, in his article noted the power of the 7.62-mm machine gun «Armata», which is equipped with a special device that allows to remotely reloading the weapon. The sealing mechanism protects it from water ingress into the electric trap during precipitation or when overcoming water obstacles. The T-14 tank also has a heavy 12.7-mm machine gun «Kord», capable of penetrating light armor. Moreover, this tank is equipped with reactive dynamic armor, uninhabited turret, laser-guided missiles and a rough surface, thanks to which it is easier to blend into uneven terrain, and it is easier and safer to move along armor covered with special material, since it does not slip. The newest 2B25 «Gall» mortars began to enter the Russian army, which are characterized by almost complete noiselessness, making it very difficult to detect the position from which the shooting is being conducted. In early May 2019, several dozen such mortars were received by Special Forces units. The 82B «Gall», a silent mortar of 82 mm caliber, was developed by the «Nizhny Novgorod Central Research Institute «Burevestnik», and according to the manufacturer, the maximum range of the product is 1200 m, the minimum is 100 m, the rate of fire is 15 shots per minute if the fire is fired at one the point. It is possible to bring a mortar into a combat position from a traveling one in just 30 seconds; it is able to work at an ambient temperature of minus 50 to plus 50 degrees Celsius, a crew of two men. Also, the undoubted advantage of the 2B25 mortar is the stealthness of the firing position and the suddenness of its use due to the noiselessness, flamelessness and smokelessness of shooting, due to the peculiarities of the design scheme and the use of the silent 3PO35 shot.

  7. I don't know about "very few" knowing the history, but the Guardsman described in the picture mounting guard outside Buckingham Palace is a member of the Grenadier Guards- not the Coldstream as described. Apart from the regimental badges their loyalty can be ascertained by examining the buttons in the front of the tunic. They are arranged in ones for the Grenadiers. In groups of two for the Coldstream. Groups of three for the Scots Guards. Groupds of four for the Irish Guards, and groups of five for the Welsh Guards.

  11. I have my family's postcards from WW1 and I would like to make a coffee book. I think the story on the cards and the pictures would be of interest to others. There are some embroidered, photographs and cartoons. I have been trying to find who to contact for copyright and have come to dead ends with every place I've tried. Can anyone help me with this?

    who are you?

    Much as I enjoy the web site and the thoughtful content you provide, I am troubled by the anonymity of the site. There is no 'about us" feature. And it is often not possible to post comments on Facebook when I read an article. This would be ok if there were no comments but often, I read offensive comments which need to be called out.
