Japan Battleships prior to the attack on Pearl Harbor Part 2

Japan had 12 battleships prior to the start of World War II. With only one other started. The Battleship Shinano (Yamato Class) 72000 tons. After the start of the war, Japan saw the need for more aircraft carriers and the Shinano was converted to a aircraft carrier. She was the largest carrier until the launch of the USS Forrestal CV-59 that was launched in Dec. 1954. Japan would not build or launch another battleship after the Yamato in Sept. 1941. On the morning of Dec. 7th, 1941, Japan had the most powerful fleet. They had 2 of the largest battleships in the world – The Yamato & Musashi. Most people are mistaken in thinking the allies knew the true size of the Yamato and caliber of her main guns. This was not known until near the end and even after the war. When documents were discovered giving the true actual design facts on the Yamato class battleship. Oddly enough with Japan’s successful aircraft carrier attack on Pearl Harbor, they made the Yamato & Musashi obsolete! Neither battleship ever went in battleship on battleship type combat. The Yamato and Musashi mainly provided escort and bombardment during the war, right up until both were sunk by US carrier based aircraft. The only real ship to ship combat that either ship had action in was the Battle off Samar. When both the Yamato & Musashi were sunk, the loss of life was great. An estimated 2498 of the 2700 crew members on Yamato were lost, including Vice-Admiral Seiichi Itō, the fleet commander. The Musashi crew

Churchill’s secret weapon. Nazi Germany’s greatest foe. Ian Fleming’s inspiration. Discover how a hardware salesman from Canada changed the fate of nations and helped win World War Two. Sir Winston Churchill once said, “In war, the truth is so valuable that it must be protected by a bodyguard of lies.” At the outset of WWII, in the face of Nazi aggression and American apathy, the British PM required facts and fiction to achieve his goal of defending Great Britain. Churchill trusted one man above all others to generate both. That man was Sir William Stephenson, The True Intrepid. Stephenson changed the course of the Twentieth Century, yet even after his death he remains firmly in the shadows. From his early family life in Winnipeg to heroic deeds on the front lines of World War One, to his pivotal role during the cold war, Stephenson blazed a trail so unique that history is divided on how he should be remembered. Previous accounts of his life have been rife with factual errors, no accident when you consider Stephenson himself once said, “Nothing deceives like a document.” Now, for the first time ever, comes an accurate account of his work outside the established intelligence community where, under the guise of British Passport Control, his agents perfected coding, forgery, counter-espionage and propaganda, all with the intent of defeating Hitler’s military juggernaut. In this hour-long documentary, the life of a master spy is examined more closely than ever before

Google Tech Talks December 18, 2007 How Stanford & the CIA/NSA Built the Valley We Know Today, presented by Steve Blank. How much does an average Googler know about the history of the place he/she works in – Silicon Valley? Come and test your knowledge. I have seen this talk and I assure you – even seasoned Silicon Valley veterans will find this story interesting. Silicon Valley entrepreneur Steve Blank will talk about how World War II set the stage for the creation and explosive growth of Silicon Valley, and the role of Frederick Terman and Stanford in working with government agencies (including the CIA and the National Security Agency) to set up companies in this area that sparked the creation of hundreds of other enterprises. Steve Blank spent nearly 30 years as founder and executive of high tech companies in Silicon Valley, most recently the enterprise software firm E.piphany. He has been involved in or co-founded eight Silicon Valley startups, ranging from semiconductors to video games, and personal computers to supercomputers.

From D-day to the Dam (Canadian ‘home’ video’s) part 2 – Movie

Visit: worldwar2propaganda.info for more World War II movies and music. “There is a long long trail a-winding into the lands of my dreams” Part 2. These movies were made by Canadian troops at or nearby the frontline. This part shows the liberation of the Netherlands in 1944 and 1945 viewed through Canadian eyes. + 1/2 of the movie is with English narration 1/4 in Dutch and 1/4 in French. It all got Dutch subtitles. Sorry for the pretty bad video quality, I don’t know why Part 1 looks alot better then this one. But this will be no problem in the downloable version. Download will be added when I have the time to upload it.

WW2 – Dieppe Raid (part 1 of 2) – footage

WW2 footage. German Wartime Newsreel. The Dieppe Raid, also known as The Battle of Dieppe or Operation Jubilee, during the Second World War, was an Allied attack on the German-occupied port of Dieppe, Seine-Inférieure on the Northern coast of France on 19 August 1942. Over 6000 infantrymen, predominantly Canadian, were supported by large British naval and Allied air force contingents. The objective was to seize and hold a major port for a short period, both to prove it was possible and to gather intelligence from prisoners and captured materials while assessing the German responses. No major objectives of the raid were accomplished. 3623 of the 6086 men who made it ashore were either killed, wounded, or captured. The Allied air forces failed to lure the Luftwaffe into open battle, and lost 119 planes, while the Royal Navy suffered 555 casualties.

WW2 footage. German Wartime Newsreel (Die Deutsche Wochenschau Nr. 739, 02-Nov-1944) The Gumbinnen Operation, also known as the Goldap Operation (or Goldap-Gumbinnen Operation), was a Soviet offensive on the Eastern Front late in 1944, in which forces of the 3rd Belorussian Front attempted to penetrate the borders of East Prussia. The offensive failed, due to strong resistance by the Wehrmacht. As a result it is largely known through German accounts of the defence and because of the atrocities that were alleged to have been committed by troops of the 11th Guards Army, the so-called Nemmersdorf massacre. On 16 October, the 5th and 11th Guards Armies went onto the offensive and initially penetrated some 11 km into the German defensive belt. The flanking armies commenced operations the next day, by which time units of the 11th Guards Army had crossed the East Prussian border. The Soviet troops ran into extremely strong resistance, however. It took them four days to penetrate the initial tactical defences, while the second defence line was so strong that Chernyakhovsky was compelled to commit the 2nd Guards Tank Corps to break it. Casualties were extremely heavy. On 20 October, the second line was ruptured by the 11th Guards Army and 2nd Guards Tank Corps east of Gumbinnen, defended by the guns of the 18th Anti-Aircraft Division and the Fallschirm-Panzerkorps Hermann Göring, which had been redeployed in the area to counter the Soviet advance. On 21 October, the Soviets
