I was wondering if anyone in this thread knows about a certain war story from WW2, I remember reading it on /k/ and it was a picture of a British Matilda slammed into a wall accompanied with text of what happened.

It went like this:
German scout on western front stumbles upon a column of Matilda's and it turns out all the tanks were empty with all the crewman at the front of the column being briefed or something. The scout hops into one of the tanks and takes it back to his outpost, although not knowing how to shut the engine off he decided to ram the tank into a wall.

I know I saved it somewhere but I just can't find it. I'm still searching for it.

Oh never mind, I finally found the story.

Major Werncke, of the Panzer-Lehr Division, conducted a reconnaissance of Point 213 later in the morning and reconnoitring on foot, discovered a column of unoccupied Cromwell tanks. The crews were studying a map with an officer at the front of the column and Werncke drove one off before the British could react and drove to the east end of Villers-Bocage, he found a scene of "burning tanks and Bren-gun carriers and dead Tommies" then drove back to the Panzer-Lehr headquarters at Château d'Orbois. "Because I had no clue how to switch the tank's engine off I drove the Cromwell into a sandwall by the Château d'Orbois, the HQ of the Panzer Lehr Division at the time, to finally stall the engine."

I also found in a British source that the original tank crew went to the French Gendarmerie.

if the battle of britain 'proved' anything, it was that strategic bombing of civilian targets does not result in capitulation, this happened afaik once, with the Dutch capitulating after the Germans threatened to bomb Utrecht after they had (somewhat accidentally) bombed Rotterdam
it also showed that the british were capable of replacing any losses suffered quickly enough to not have a real result in the overall combat effectiveness of the RAF

In my opinion the British and the French were aching to stomp Fritz again, so theyre just as guilty. Lets not forget however that Hitler literally wanted to remove every single person in the Lebensraum one way or the other.

There is no moral rationalizing it. There is a reason why every single small nation in Europe was against the Nazis (except for Ireland, Sweden and Spain).
>>
>>3025703
Wrong. The battle of Britain proved that radar tech in the defense of an island against terrible bomber planes (compared to 400 B-24s flying at night) is not going to work, especially since the escort fighters only have 30 minutes of fight in them, while a shot down British pilot can just parachute, run to the nearest airfield and fly again. A downed German fighter is a prisoner and out of the war.

Lastly, the radar detecting AA shells developed by the yanks was the real reason for the "victory".

Lastly, none of this matters, since Russia won the war with American supplies, while England sat on their island letting the US win the Atlantic, North Africa, Italy and Normandy for them.
>>
>>3034741
You're mostly right, but that's an understatement of the British efforts in the war. They contributed what they could and were the only ones who fought from 1940 to 1941.

First of all, i will again state that strategic bombing almost never works in the bombing party's favour. it does not matter how large or effective your bombing force is, the only occurrences of a nation capitulating after being bombed are the Netherlands in 1940 and the Japanese in 1945. The prior because they had nothing to gain whatsoever by continuing the fighting and the latter because they realized that nuclear warfare could mean the extinction of their nation.
Thus, with the exception of nuclear weaponry, it does not matter how capable or large your bombing force is, a determined nation(or government) will not capitulate due to bombing of strategic/civilian targets

>Lastly, the radar detecting AA shells developed by the yanks was the real reason for the "victory".
if you are referring to proximity fuses, these were still in development during the BoB and therefore of little relevance.

see>>3034885
Whilst you correctly state that the war was actually lost in Russia, it cannot be understated that the loss of experienced aircrew and materiel during the Battle of Britain that otherwise might have been used on the Eastern front.
Of course, germany still wouldnt have won, but one could argue that the Germans would have been slightly more successful in the east, seeing as the Germans lost only 50% more planes in Russia than they did over Britain.

Sorry to disappoint you but Hitler's driving force was the conqueust of living space in the east and the subjection/eradication of so-called inferiror races in this process (based on his ideas of an eternal struggle between the races-> Social Darwinsim)
It is true that Hitler despised and hated the Jews but a radicalisation of the Nazi regime and the plan to kill the Jews on an industrial scale came into effect only after '42, 2 1/2 years of the beginning of WWII

>>3059645
not him but the start of the holocaust is generally considered to be august '41, when the einsatzgruppen started to shoot jewish women and children in addition to the men (communists!) after barbarossa. it's still unclear if that decision was made from the top down or if it was initiated by an individual unit and simply not corrected (hitler ruled by the thumb up/down principle, expecting, encouraging and rewarding initiative from the bottom up), thus resulting in the spread (hitler had not disapproved, thus approved) of this behavior and the subsequent evolution of the holocaust into gas vans, primitive gas chambers, krema.
i suspect it's the latter, that the nazis more or less stumbled in to the holocaust, as a logical but not designed conclusion to the continuously escalating anti jewish measures up to that point (since '33), conveniently facilitated (locked down europe, marshal law) by the world war they found themselves in. a banal slippery slope.
>>
>>3059662
What's your point with respect to the discussion?
Furthermore, your argument of an accidental holocaust (the killing of 6 million people in an industrial manner) was by no means something that 'kinda happened'.
In addition, your last sentence is full of illogical conclusions, assumptions. The Nazis found themselves in a world war that faciliated the extermination of the Jews? The Nazis stumbled in to the Holocaust. I mean, come on.
>>
>>3043530
They probably mean that the Russians will quickly be defeated and potential prisoners freed. Since the picture looks like it was taken before the defeat of the 6. Armee. If it was taken afterwards than I have absolutely no clue.
>>
>>3059699
i don't have a point. just felt like pointing out that the holocaust started in '41, not '42. and i didn't say it was accidental. the end solution was very much something the nazis had pursued for many years, in whatever form. i'm saying the form it finally took was one that was arrived at organically, not by design. this is just my opinion, there is no record of any high level order given to commence a genocide, so all that remains is speculation. and yes, i am arguing that the holocaust "kinda" happened.
if you don't point out what it is that you find illogical about my assumptions, i can't really respond further.

Banal: so lacking in originality as to be obvious and boring.
synonyms: trite, hackneyed, clichéd, platitudinous, vapid, commonplace, ordinary, common, stock, conventional, stereotyped, overused, overdone, overworked, stale, worn out, timeworn, tired, threadbare, hoary, hack, unimaginative, humdrum, ho-hum, unoriginal, uninteresting, dull, uninvolving, trivial;

> the form it finally took was one that was arrived at organically, not by design. this is just my opinion

Well, keep reading, your "opinion" doesn't match reality, not even close:

https://www.ushmm.org/outreach/en/article.php?ModuleId=10007683

The "euthanasia" program required the cooperation of many German doctors, who reviewed the medical files of patients in institutions to determine which handicapped or mentally ill individuals should be killed.

Doomed patients were transferred to six institutions in Germany and Austria, where they were killed in specially constructed gas chambers. Handicapped infants and small children were also killed by injection with a deadly dose of drugs or by starvation. The bodies of the victims were burned in large ovens called crematoria.

About 200,000 handicapped people were murdered between 1940 and 1945.

The T-4 program became the model for the mass murder of Jews, Roma (Gypsies), and others in camps equipped with gas chambers that the Nazis would open in 1941 and 1942. The program also served as a training ground for SS members who manned these camps.

https://www.ushmm.org/wlc/en/article.php?ModuleId=10007656

Various German authorities established the first concentration camps in Germany soon after Hitler's appointment as chancellor in January 1933. The SS, SA (Storm Troopers), the police and civilian authorities set up hundreds of makeshift “camps” in empty warehouses, factories, and other locations across Germany. The camps served as “temporary” detention centers for political opponents.
>>
>>3059942
yes, banal. if you look in to the holocaust, you hope to find some rime or reason to the thing. some noble, if not misplaced motivation and vision. if you then find that the only reason it occurred was that they set in motion, for reasons of populist political expediency, a train of escalating anti jewish measures that they were then unable and/or unwilling to stop, i think that can be called banal. as in very human, very fallible. wholy avoidable and unnecessary. disappointing and ordinary.
the existence of the t4 program and the concentration camps do not provide a precedent to the holocaust, or proof of planned intent thereof. they were murderous, but not genocidal. obviously there is a correlation between the regime's willingness to commit violence and murder and the eventual holocaust, but that says nothing about how the holocaust was eventually arrived at. by grand design or by uncontrolled escalation of said violence. planning something and (willingly) not stopping something you've set in motion but have only marginal control over, are two different things.
we can agree to disagree. you can't prove me wrong nor can i prove you wrong, the exact set of decisions and events that led to the holocaust are unknown.

PS it has nothing to do with the ~6 million (which is even doubtful).

“It makes no difference what men think of war, said the judge. War endures. As well ask men what they think of stone. War was always here. Before man was, war waited for him. The ultimate trade awaiting its ultimate practitioner. That is the way it was and will be. That way and not some other way.”

the Venerable Dhammananda wrote,

(PS wiser and older then any judge.)

"Buddhists should not be the aggressors even in protecting their religion or anything else. They must try their best to avoid any kind of violent act. Sometimes they may be forced to go to war by others who do not respect the concept of the brotherhood of humans as taught by the Buddha. They may be called upon to defend their country from external aggression, and as long as they have not renounced the worldly life, they are duty-bound to join in the struggle for peace and freedom. Under these circumstances, they cannot be blamed for becoming soldiers or being involved in defence. However, if everyone were to follow the advice of the Buddha, there would be no reason for war to take place in this world. It is the duty of every cultured person to find all possible ways and means to settle disputes in a peaceful manner, without declaring war to kill his or her fellow human beings."

war is like cancer, it is part of life but not a law, we choose war because we are afraid and to small to comprehend that we can change...so why don't you change even though you know it is wrong....you still don't dare to change. (Krishnamurti)

Violence creates violence,glorification of violence creates heroism, heroism creates false perspectives, false perspectives create propaganda, propaganda creates slaves...

war = slavery, freedom = peace...

If all of you wankers instead of trying to rebuild or recreate a past, would build on a future, we would be so much better of, instead we are still shooting at each other in utter panic and fear...no lessons learned, to bad these +50 million people died in vain....

If you wish for people to learn from history, because that's the only way you can stop a war like this from happening again, you need to examine said history. Learning from historic events is the non-plus ultra. Instead of closing our eyes we need to understand what happened and how to make sure that we can prevent it from happening again.
You're basically proposing that we ignore and put all of this "under the carpet" and be done with it, that's actually kind of how Germany works nowadays. Unfortunately in relation to many things that should be talked about. It does not work that way and right now you're basically screaming things that simply do not make any sense because you're in some kind of troubled emotional state. In fact, you are talking about prevention and all these "ethical" questions but you basically, even if you might not realize it, take a big dump on all the lives that were lost, the sacrifices that were made. Don't say stupid things like "glorification" while playing the "higher ground" moral card.

WWII is highly interesting in many ways. Do you wish for me to tell you how many of my ancestors died on the Eastern Front? The Western Front? On the sea? Almost all of my family members on both sides, except for some Saxons and Bavarians, are German Silesians. We lost a home after 1945. A home that is most likely never going to be our home again, do you really think someone would glorify this?
If you're German, like the reply chain would suggest, then I'm ashamed, sad and disappointed that you would say such things.

Replay it in games calling yoursel Lt. blabla, in books, fucking LARP's, in movies, in songs, in everything. war, war, war, war, war.

you probably think you are a real HC historian super wise buff, you are not you are a fan of genocide and murder.

you have no clue what really happend, just drooling over death and violence and weapons.

name me one no war related subject from that era, you can't....because you are blind with violence and destruction (it gives you adrenaline).

out!

BTW I am not German at all.....

WW2 is becoming a tantrum of heroism and superhumanism, people turn it in to a fucking cartoon with dreams attached to it....ya'll went to far....ya'll fanatics.

you make me and many other people sick with your ever stupid,"he man you know what happend on a beach in France with some boats some bikes and a 1000 bunkers."
