Your task will not be an easy one. Your enemy is well trained, well equipped and battle hardened, he will fight savagely.
But this is the year 1944! Much has happened since the Nazi triumphs of 1940-41. The United Nations have inflicted upon the Germans great defeats, in open battle, man to man. Our air offensive has seriously reduced their strength in the air and their capacity to wage war on the ground. Our home fronts have given us an overwhelming superiority in weapons and munitions of war, and placed at our disposal great reserves of trained fighting men. The tide has turned! The free men of the world are marching together to victory!
I have full confidence in your courage, devotion to duty and skill in battle. We will accept nothing less than full victory!
Good Luck! And let us all beseech the blessings of Almighty God upon this great and noble undertaking.
My great grandfather is in the copilot seat of this exact plane when the picture was taken. This was also the mission in which he earned his Purple Heart, getting hit by shrapnel from German anti-aircraft artillery (AAA). @WWII @B-17 @379bombergroup @mightyeighthairforce
Google Drive has this neat little automatic list generator built into it. Here’s how it works:
1) Open a spreadsheet.
2) Enter two related items in cells A1 and A2.
3) Highlight A1 and A2. Hold down option (or “ctrl” for Windows) and drag the lower right corner down.
Boom! You’ve got a list. Here’s some more we did, but try it for yourself and send us any funny/weird/creepy ones you come up with.
