A great thread. I wish these men could live another 30 years.

They are heros, icons, the greatest example of our country.

Speaking of which....

"The second Kim was in fact born in Siberia, safely under the protection of Stalin, where his father commanded a military unit of Chinese and Korean exiles. His boyhood and upbringing were perfectly comfortable. It was the genocidal Stalin who, after the defeat of Japan in 1945, virtually created North Korea and imposed Kim Il-sung upon it as communist dictator. It was he who, with Soviet support, launched the Korean War." [per Frederick Forsyth]

Good heavens. I just watched five minutes and the combat is visceral and uncompromising. I'll be watching that full show later.

The last American who received the Medal of Honor during the WWII has died
Herschel Williams, born 02.10.23, died on June 29. He was a Marine, fought on Guam and Iwo Jima. At Iwo Jima, he burned out enemy pillboxes with a flamethrower acting alone (the rest were killed) (constantly crawling to recharge), and also repelled the bayonet attack of the Japanese who tried to stab him, with the same flamethrower.

On August 9, at the age of 103, an Italian partisan died in Rome
Mario Fiorentini, born on November 7, 1918 in an Italian-Jewish family. From July 1943 to June 1944, he was a guerrilla in Rome as part of the GAP – communist Gruppi di Azione Patriottica (although he was not a communist himself), mainly throwing or laying bombs in places where germans congregate. His parents were sent to the camp, but the Italian mother managed to escape by bribing a guard.
After the liberation of the city, he became subordinate to the OSS and partisan in the northern Apennines. After the war, he became a mathematician, taught at Italian universities.
Rich biography. The largest number of awards among the partisans

For my money the term "greatest generation", coined by a talking head media type who never served, is disrespectful to every other generation before and after WW2.
In some ways, Brokaw’s effort was to romanticize and support war.

The problem is that the Nazis were almost the same communists as Roosevelt, Churchill and Stalin. The left wing advocated pure collectivism along the lines of Stalin.
The crimes of Churchill are no less than those of the Nazis, and he himself was a Nazi. He said "I don't like Bengalis". And he staged a holocaust in Bengal. I doubt that this pig is somehow better than the Nazis

And Americans can say "Thank you" to Roosevelt for the wonderful life in the 30s after the roaring 20s. Alcoholization of the nation, confiscation of gold, restriction of freedoms, concentration camps, etc.

All these scum used people as slave cattle, only each in their own interests.

Fascists are jelly pigs just like communists. Their ideologies differed little - totalitarism. And do not try to assign the entire Russian people to communism, scum, the communists destroyed the Russians and put them in gulags - Russian concentration camps, including children, including children who were imprisoned under political articles. Communist Beria, leader of the USSR, raped a child. Gloldomors, red terror, executions and so on. The communist Mao massacred more than 20 million Chinese people during the Great Leap Forward and massacred the Uyghurs. Communists are criminals and everyone who whitewashes them is a criminal and a traitor to the Russian people. Fucking bitch

Stalinism was condemned by the 20th Congress, then the CPSU was recognized by the court as a criminal organization, and no one canceled these decisions, the fucking communist bitch. Putin and Medvedev also spoke about the crimes of Bolshevism.

And remember the communist bitch: the Russian people and other peoples of the former USSR won the war, not the communists.

Due to Stalinism and the repressions of 1937, the officer army was destroyed and the country's defense capability was undermined. Stalinism is directly responsible for the enormous sacrifices of 1941-1943.

On 08/14/1942, during a battle near the village of Sutoki, two sniper girls Natasha Kovshova and Masha Polivanova died in battle. When only they were left alive from the unit holding the defense under this village, the fighting friends let the nazis come close and blew themselves and the enemies surrounding them up with the last two grenades. By the decree of the Presidium of the Supreme Soviet of the USSR dated February 14, 1943, Natalia Kovshova and Maria Polivanova were awarded the title of Heroes of the Soviet Union (posthumously).

Preparing for war involves purging the ranks of the army. Hitler did not cleanse his generals and when events turned from victories to defeats, they tried to kill him. Stalin, even in the days when the Germans were standing near Moscow, could rely on his generals. and the Red Army put forward talented commanders from its ranks, who broke the back of nazism. Stalin could leave the capital and fly to Tehran, Hitler was forced to sit in the cellars of the Reich Chancellery and curse his generals. Goebbels wrote about this necessity in his diary in the last months of the Reich's existence. But it was too late.
