The Hanko Front 13.03.1940 - 04.12.1941

Hello Thought to advertise my site a bit here also, as I haven't done that earlier and just updated the site. This presentation keeps inside a mapping of the Harparskog-line (H-position). The numbered structures in the defensive line are presented in this presentation with photographs and with text....

Harparskog-line

After over a month of work and three visits to the Hanko Cape, I finally completed the presentation from the Harparskog-line. After the Winter War, Finland was forced to rent Hanko and the surrounding islands to Soviet Union as a naval base. Closing the Hanko Cape from the Soviet base was an importa...

Hello

Thank you very much for the information.

I'll have to check that site at home, as our company policy restricts my access to that particular site, so I can pretty much guess what the site is about.

Feldgrau however is accepted by our internet filter :)

At least Herbert A. Werner, author of the Iron Coffins and a commander of the U-953 (his last boat), claims that in Norway, two men were executed on 7th of May. The charge was desertion. Werner however says, that nominally the war ended on 5th of May, the day that they received a message from Doenit...

Domagk was awarded the Nobel Prize for Medicine in 1939. The interesting fact is, that Domagk was forbidden by the Nazi government to go and collect his Nobel Prize and so he was able to receive the Prize only after the war in 1947. The brand name of the drug that Domagk introduced, was called Pron...

94er Denkmal in Weimar

Hopefully this is a correct section for this question? Couldn't think of any other section where this question would belong to. I already tried to ask this in another forum, but I didn't get any response and the question probably isn't too hard? I wonder could anyone tell me about the 94er memorial,...

Hi Guys, Hope to make a start on Finland 1941-1944 soon. Let me know when you'll get started with this as my father collects Finnish stamps (has been so for the past 40 to 50 years) and has a nearly finished Finnish stamp collection with only few earliest and rarest stamp issues from the 19th-centu...

And what I'm talking about here is that: - The German soldiers had taken an oath to serve Hitler and soldiers oath is something that cannot be easily forgotten? - What was the true motivation of Stauffenberg and the rest of the men who were involved to the attempt? I must admit that I've not read ab...

http://www.bills-bunker.de/32101.html Is it correct to use traitors and conspirators, who wanted to murder the legal head of state in time of war, as post war national heroes? This debate will go on for generations to come. This quote comes from the his webpage on Remer. I think it shows what the s...

I cannot really explain exhaustively my interest towards Germany. First it was just about the Second World War, even before I could read I was looking at the pictures in the books. Then I started to read about the WWII and especially about Germany during the war. But now I could say that the whole G...

Actually it took a bit longer to finalize the German-Polish border than 1919. The plebiscite in Silesian area, wasn't held until 1921, where eastern part of Silesia went to Poland, western part to Germany and a small section of Silesia to Czechoslovakia. However I don't know about the years when oth...
