1. In Central Africa in the middle of World War II, more than 500 Italian troops were ordered to defend a field airport. They had a solid concrete standing position, sufficient ammunition, and even two powerful 88 guns supported by the Germans. And sufficient ammunition, while the British on the offensive only had more than 400 people, and even decent heavy weapons were not available. The British commander had basically no hope for the attack and had even made plans to retreat.

But the strange thing was that the attack had just started, and the Italian gave up the resistance and hit the white flag.

When asked why the Italian officer who had surrendered surrendered, the other side exclaimed, "We don't have a crowbar, we can't open those damn ammunition boxes!"

2. Once the 15,000 U.S. and Australian coalition forces attacked a Japanese-occupied island. After preparing for 2 hours of shelling, the U.S.-Australian coalition landed and lost 25 soldiers during the battle and took complete control. Small island.

Of course, if the island does have Japanese defenders, this casualty figure should be expanded.

3. In the famous "Wolf Pack" operation, a German U-submarine hit an Allied transport ship. This transport ship full of military supplies and de-tona-tor suffered a large accident. Exploded, everything was blown up, and the captain of the German U-submarine ordered the submarine to go up to watch his record. Unfortunately, an M4 Sherman tank that was blown up to the sky just fell off and gave the submarine It sank ... And, this submarine became the only submarine in the world to be sunk by a tank.

4. When the Allies landed in Normandy , a commander who had almost no defeat in the European battlefield of the German Ace Tank Battalion may be stunned, and led his subordinates and the newly equipped new powerful Tiger tank to the beach, The courage with the Allied warships was extremely commendable!

But unfortunately, only after firing a round of artillery shells, the giant artillery on the Allied 30,000-ton battleships bombarded these new tanks directly to the state of parts.

5. In a port where both sides are stuck, the German minesweepers come to mine every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday, while the British minesweepers go to mine clearance every Tuesday, Thursday, and Saturday. This lasted for a long time-until one day the British commander failed to conduct routine mine clearance operations because of other things, and the German minesweeper who came to mine the next day was sunk by a mine the day before yesterday. ...

When the British army rescued the German officers who were in the water, they were very angry and questioned the British officers: "How can you be irresponsible as a minesweeper! This is absolutely not allowed in our army!"

The gentleman's British had always been very unhappy about this, so they gave the rescued Germans good treatment until the end of the war and sent them back home.

6. At that time, in the Chinese battlefield, a U.S.-assisted B24 was shot down, the crew parachuted, and the Japanese aircraft began shooting the parachuting Americans. One of the Americans immediately saw the scene and pulled his hands and feet to pretend to die in the air. The pilot drove down to check if he was really dead. At this time, the Americans pulled out a pistol and killed the Japanese pilot. This is the only record in World War II that the fighter was shot down with a pistol.

7. Potatoes sunk the submarine In January 1984, an American newspaper reported an anecdote: the potatoes sunk the submarine. That was World War II. The US destroyer "Obannon" was patrolling the sea. Suddenly a submarine in front of it surfaced with the Japanese Navy's mark on it. At the same time, the submarine also discovered "Obannon". Sudden encounters caught both sides off guard. The "Obannon" fired first, but none of them hit the panic. The Japanese submarine failed to launch the torpedo, and rushed towards the port side of "Aubenon" to enter the dead end of the gun fire. The situation suddenly changed, and the American sailors were panicking. They picked up the potatoes stored in the deck cabins and threw them at the submarine. The Japanese thought that the grenade was thrown in the past, and they were so frightened that they burped into the cabin. "Obannon" was driving at full strength and widening the distance, and the Japanese submarine fled hurriedly. On the way to escape, he bumped into the reef in a panic way and was buried under the sea.

8. The Soviet-German War reached the most critical moment in 1942. The Soviet Union was in short supply, so Stalin sent a message to Churchill for help: Please give food!

Churchill was unwilling to give him, so he called back and tightened his belt!

Stalin's helpless resurgence said: Please give a belt!

9. The Germans built a fake airfield in the occupied Netherlands, which led to a story that has long been a joke for allied pilots.

The "airport" aircraft carefully constructed by the Germans were almost all constructed of wood. There are wooden hangars, wooden oil tanks, wooden turrets, wooden trucks and wooden planes. The German airfield was repaired for a long time, so it was more than enough time for the Allied photo experts to observe and report on it, and the investigation was thorough. The completion day of the German fake airport finally arrived, and the last plank was nailed. Brits who like black humor decided to make a joke with the Germans. The next day, early in the morning, a solitary RAF aircraft crossed the English Channel and flew low over the newly completed wooden airport of the German army. After hovering around the airport, the British pilot calmly threw it down A huge wooden bomb.
