The Japanese Canadians were being punished for a crime they did not commit. This meant people were suspicious and literally afraid of Japanese for being spies sent from Japan. This notice was distributed throughout British Columbia. If any Japanese were found in the prohibited areas listed, they would be incarcerated.
It must be Soviet Union and the Allies. This sounds just right. Worse, it would have limited the Allied ability to advance, requiring different parts already in the field, fuel for the Shermans to run with the added weight, and secondary supply logistics to run the extra supplies which means that you have trim down in other supplies being transported.
Force that cannot be used is Force wasted. The Tiger tank broke down far too often. Its fuel requirements meant that it had limited range from the railroad tracks and was therefore useless in the field for much of the war.
As the article notes, the greatest factor in tank-to-tank battles was determined by who was Defender vs Attacker: Dug-in Vs Charging but vulnerable. Already-in-position-to-fire Vs Trying-to-get-in-position-to-fire First-to-see, First-to-fire Vs Looking-for-the-enemy and Waiting for his first shots to reveal himself.
The Officers were apparently just happy to count the burnt or captured hulks and call it a day most of the time, leaving future historians wondering whether the tanks on both sides were destroyed by mines, mechanical breakdown, cannibalism, enemy action, or post-action destruction. And the Officers were right.
As it is, history demonstrates that the Tiger tank succumbed to its deficiencies first and foremost. Historians will have to begin with this lb gorilla in the room, if they are to be taken seriously in Historic and Contemporary Military Affairs. In fact, one variant of the Sherman, the M4A3E2, was factory-equipped this way.
But it did make the troops feel a bit better, perhaps, which is certainly worth something Nixie Some of the techniques were of little use, but welding on double thicknesses of armor plate was definitely effective.
I cannot prove but strongly suspect that the obvious and continuing deficiencies of the Sherman were a result of both a conservative military mindset and a private industrial sector e. Chrysler which was reluctant to retool and spend any more than was necessary to obtain big profits from the federal government.
For probably more unbiased evaluations, I recommend the actual field reports made by the Wehrmacht troops on the ground at the time, and not so much later texts which often have a decidedly ideological and political bias.
All that being said, I find that I have the highest regard for both U. Pretty sure it holds the title for the most mass-produced tank of the war, and it caused a minor panic in the German military when it first appeared on the battlefield — the German Panther tank seems to have been built as a direct response to the T Pretty sure it holds the title for the most mass-produced tank of the war, and it seems to have caused a minor panic in the German military when it first appeared on the battlefield.
Plus the German Panther tank seems to have been built as a direct response to the T It did have great stats, but its ergonomic and visibility issues hampered performance. To be fair to the tank, Soviet tactics contributed significantly to those losses — but the Soviets received a few thousand Shermans and their crews were generally happy with them.
Robert Maybeth Your comment on the T34 was dead on — crude in the extreme, barely good enough! This meant they gave orders to the one with the radio and the others followed along like cattle. The Russians had a shortage of radio sets.
Moreover the design of the T34 was so crude, the floor of the turret did not rotate with the turret itself…So when the turret turned, the seats stayed where they were and the crew had to scootch in their seats!
Also most of the ammo was stored under the turret floor. To get to this ammo, two steel floor panels had to be removed, the heavy ammo hauled out, and the floor panels quickly replaced, or not?!Expert Opinions | On August 6 and 9, , the U.S.
President Harry S. Truman ordered the dropping of atomic bombs on Hiroshima and Nagasaki, upon which Japan surrendered, ending World War II. Over , people died, mostly civilians.
It has remained the only time atomic bombs have ever been used in warfare. This short essay focuses on education within schools and universities during the Second World War in order to explore the relationship between war and learning.
Topic: Japanese Canadians during World War II During the World War II, there was more than 6 millions of Jews killed by Nazi, most of them killed in the concentration camp A place where selected groups of people confined, usually for political reasons.
Racial slurs for the whole family, impress your friends with your vast knowledge of hate! Japanese Canadians During to , World War II was a sad time in Canada’s history.
Due to the unfortunate attacks on Pearl Harbor, Japanese Canadians were treated unjustifiably. The Canadian government subjected the Japanese Canadians to financial loss, racism, relocation of residencies, and harsh living situations.
In this course we will read three genres in American literature: short stories, poems, and a novel. Edgar Allan Poe, Kate Chopin, Eudora Welty, and Kurt Vonnegut will introduce us to Gothic Romanticism, turn of the (nineteenth) century feminism, racial discrimination during the segregation era, and a dystopian view on equality.
