Yes, I know the difference between a clip and a mag. I was half asleep when I finished and I didn't proof read.

My history teacher served in WW2 and said he was on one of the small islands in japan  forgot which one  and claimed that the island was so small you could hear each side if you yelled at each other. So one night both sides were talking 			****		 to each other yet again and one of the Japs said "Hey Americans, tonight you die rike pigs!" and one of the raiders yelled back saying "Yeah, we'll see about that!" (in Japanese) so  the Japs replied "John Wayne is bad actor!"   
   
   
I assume many lels were had

This is why war sucks. It just shows you that the other side, they're not just mindless enemies, they have personalities, families, dreams, feelings. How do you fight someone after something like that? How do you go from cracking jokes to shooting each other? Still really funny though

even worse in WW 1 where in some cases they played games together outside of the trenches and also sang and ate

Yeah... this is why it's asinine to go to war for anything but the defense of your nation, or another nation acting defensively (Nonaggression Principle).

WW1 and WW2 didn't have to happen (especially the European Theater), and ALL the Men on BOTH sides (blame starting with the aggressors, of course) were fools to fight.

These men were going out in fields and slaughtering eachother for a nonexistent conflict - so that a few rulers back home could subtly steer and trick world politics and gain a little extra power.

Watch this video all the way through when you have the time, and share it. It's massively interesting and illuminating: www.youtube.com/watch?v=RgcdRCWEt4Q

It's like a weird bittersweet thing or something, war shows the worst and the best in humanity, we could play games, trash talk each other and sing between trenches, but it also gets shattered by the horrors of humanity.

after christmas in WWII british and german soldiers had a soccer game together and refused to fight each other for the next couple of weeks
you eventually see that everyone has feelings

My great uncle died in WW2, but he has a medal named after him in France for marksmanship apparently. His unit was being overrun, and with them retreated he grabbed an anti-tank gun: a weapon two people were meant to manipulate and fire. Using it alone he managed to take out something ridiculous, I'd need to confirm, but I believe it was something along the line of 15 tanks, all on his own before he was killed.

“It was like shooting turkeys back at home… If you shot the ones in the back, the ones in the front wouldn’t know and keep charging instead of getting into cover.”

What the **** kind of turkeys was York hunting back home?

Jack Malcolm Thorpe Fleming Churchill anyone? One night he single-handedly took 42 german prisoners with nothing but a broadsword, escaped from a concentration camp but recaptured and sent to austria only to escape and meet up with a US armored column (after the atomic bomb was dropped, AND he swung from a rope and stabbed a nazi officer and proceeded to beat 8 germans soldiers up with nothing with his fists. There's a lot more you can find on this guy at badassoftheweek.com/churchill.html

He also got the only longbow kill in the war, I believe

I love the stories but I've noticed that they always are from the allies POV why no Axis stories?

"History is written by the victors"
can you imagine if some grandchild proudly told a story of his German pop's killing spree? not socially acceptable unfortunately

WWll was the war of all wars. It is by far the most interesting, and the **** that happened in WWll are unbelievable. When you read about the soldiers that recieved Medals of Honor, you can barely comprehend it. The movies we see actually had to tone down the chaos because "Nobody would think it's realistic".
Pic related, that's not a Micheal Bay Film, it's America unloading on Omaha Beach, ready to **** **** up.
User avatar #76 to #57 - melonfucker (02/19/2014) [-]
yep, like the american army was the first army or group to connect the english channel of england to france with floats i don't know if that is what is named, it was like small plastic/rubberblack boat and send military supplies after taking the beach.

My Grandfather was in WW2.
He flew a b-24 liberator.
His tail gunner was once hit by flak and they had to wash what was left of the guy with a fire hose.

He flew in ploesti (which was a horrible mission, in which they took a wrong turn and ended up retracing their tracks) and the germans tore up most of their planes.

they lost over 50% of their planes. My grandfather ended up piloting a plane with 3 engines 1400 miles back to Africa, with no bearings at all, and low fuel.

I never met you Grandpa, but I love you.
User avatar #55 to #30 - tkfourtwoone ONLINE (02/19/2014) [-]
It's called Ploiesti, not ploesti.

Also, US bombers were forced into flying so low they were the main cause of shellshock and PTSD in almost all who defended that refinery. You try to remain fully sane when a bomber zooms over you at 30-50 meters.

well since people are sharing stories i might aswell share few that my grandpa told me:

1:he was too young for war,but he stole a bicycle from the nazis and sold beer to them for chocolate,he also once raided a finnish armory and stole a bag full of guns and grenades and such(one of those grenades killed my uncle btw)


2.my grandfathers brother,who fought in the war survived the entire thing without a single injury whatsoever,then right after the war he got drunk and fell of a pick up truck breaking his neck.


not so heroic war stories....

During the battle of the Bulge there was an American combat engineer who countered German propaganda being broadcasted at his unit with blasting an Al Jolson record (a jewish jazz musician, two things that the nazis hated) his name? Mel Brooks

My grandad was a corporal in the Australian Army as a medic during Vietnam, two stories of his I remember is his platoon stocking up on a **** ton of grenades also getting drunk and trying to spear his Lieutenant, another time, while pissed, he hid a grenade under his Lieutenant's pillow, but forget to take out the pin. Other than that he got into a few local newspapers with pictures of him doing medic stuff.

I hear stories from my family about my Great Grandfather, he became governor of New South Wales after the war and I hear a lot of stories about him in the war, he was a quartermaster for the AIF and a lieutenant. The most common story I hear was about a German force that had met up with some Italians, moving on his forces position they were given one night to prepare before the Axis forces arrived. Many soldiers slept but as quartermaster he had to spend the whole night preparing ammunition, destroying supplies that could be used by the Italians and Germans and preparing medical supplies for the move out and most importantly (with the help of some engineers) preparing a minefield in the base. About 3 in the morning, he heard engines coming. Knowing what this meant, He silently woke the soldiers and prepared the wounded to the leaving planes, before the planes took off him and 4 men and prepared a rearguard to buy time for as many planes as possible to leave.
They fought long enough to get 10 of the planes off the ground, he escaped through the clear path of the minefield and broke to the last plane as it was leaving. He was the last remaining memeber of the rearguard action alive, and the last man out of their sector of Africa.
