World War Two

               World War Two Film Clips

''Occupied England'' (Yank Magazine, 1945)

This YANK MAGAZINE article, written just after the Channel Islands liberation, tells some of the stories of the Nazi occupation of Jersey and Guernsey Islands.

"Before the war the English Channel Islands - long known as a vacation spot for the wealthy - were wonderful places to 'get away from it all.'"

"Then the Germans came to the islands after Dunkirk, and for five years 100,000 subjects of his majesty the King were governed by 30,000 Nazi officers and their men."


War Stories from the Second Armored Division in Normandy (Yank Magazine, 1944)

An account relaying a bloody slice of life lived by the officers and men of the U.S. Second Armored Division. The story takes place on the tenth day following the D-Day landings as one armored battalion struggled to free themselves of the hedgerows, placate their slogan-loving general and ultimately make that dinner date in far-off Paris. Yank correspondent Walter Peters weaves an interesting narrative and the reader will get a sense of the business-like mood that predominated among front line soldiers and learn what vehicles were involved during an armored assault


The Australian Soldier (Yank Magazine, 1944)

Attached is a two page article concerning the basic lot of the World War Two Australian soldier: his pay, his kit, his battles and the general reputation of the Australian Imperial Forces (A.I.F.):

"...the Australian Imperial Forces who have - and are seeing action all over the world...has fought in every theater in which British forces have been engaged...They have especially distinguished themselves at El Alamein in the North African campaign and in the Papuan and New Guinea campaigns."

Optimistic Plans Regarding the Use of Cavalry (The Alertmen, 1943)

This illustrated article from an obscure U.S. Army weekly states quite clearly that in light of the successful use of cavalry on the Eastern Front, the U.S. Army was once again training men to fight on horse-back. Referring to the writings of a Soviet General named O.T. Gorodoviko (a probable reference to General O.T. Gorodovikov: 1879 -1960) who had stated in an article written in an undated issue of "The Cavalry Journal", that cavalry proved effective in fighting the Nazis when deployed as mounted infantry in limited engagements. The journalist conveyed his enthusiasm that the era of the mounted man was back.

Please give us your thoughts about this article, something seems terribly fishy; did over-extended Soviet Generals have time to write for American journals? Furthermore, you might find that the accompanying photos seem deliberately out of date. The hard-charging post-debutants at tend to feel that this article was a hoax intended to throw someone off the trail...


The Japanese Surrender Proceedings (Yank Magazine, 1945)

"We are gathered here, representatives of the major warring powers, to conclude a solemn agreement whereby peace may be restored."

Those were the words of General Douglas MacArthur when he opened the Japanese Surrender Proceedings on board the deck of the American battleship, U.S.S. "Missouri" on the morning of September 2, 1945. This report was filed by Yank correspondent Dale Kramer, who amusingly noted that all concerned were dressed in a manner fitting the occasion, with the exception of the American officers who (oddly) seemed unable to locate their neckties that morning.

The Japanese Surrender Document (Yank Magazine, 1945)

A copy of the signature page of the Japanese Surrender Document signed on the deck of the U.S.S. "Missouri" by all the various representatives of the combatant nations. The Document was signed 9:08 a.m., September 2, 1945 in Tokyo Harbor.

In addition to the U.S. representative, the document was signed by China, the United Kingdom, the Netherlands, the Soviet Union, Australia, New Zealand, France and Canada. Five pens were used and the Japanese delegates used ink brushes.
