I decided to start a thread of WW2 photo's that are properly sourced and have some kind of story behind them.

Only post a photo that has source information :deal:.

-------------

WWll Compozillone, Italy

January 1944. Gene Mazzo and Dad. Painted bombs on the barrel of the gun to show how many planes shot down.

Follow the "Dad's WW2 (Set)" link through the image url for the background info.

Ack Ack 1944

Dad befriended these two pigeons in Obermodern, France 1944. He named them Ack Ack. They flew the coop sometime later. (He would get a kick out of saying that). Dad said the soldiers slept in the boxcars at this train station.

British Prisoners at Dunkirk, June 1940

Some very sorry looking soldiers. Made me feel sad.

Yes, my dad had a special fondness for the kids he came in contact while in Europe. He felt bad for the misery they had to endure.

Well shit, I have some kind of background behind almost all of mine. I just don't have any time now to post them and type of the background. :p

All those unsourced photo's inspire me as well :) I think needing the backstory has something to do with reading and editing too many Wikipedia articles :faq:.

Those aren't really historic descriptions. Most of them aren't anyway.

And take "Vorstoß" instead of "Fortschriit"

Well I don't lay it all out on a plate for you. The person who posted it on Flickr or where ever claims they know what it's of and could be contacted. A lot of WW2 photo's have become seperated from any kind of info whatsoever. Not that those one's aren't amazing enough.

Here are some very interesting databases I found ...

WW2DB: Photographs

The Eastern Front in Photographs

WWII Photo Gallery

Some unpublished German WWII photos

WWII aviation photos

[quote=Ts4EVER;4557262]And take "Vorstoß" instead of "Fortschriit"

What do those words mean ?

"Fortschritt" means "advance" like "technological advance" and "Vorstoß" means "advance" like "troops advancing"
