    This Ben Affleck/Leo DiCaprio buddy picture needs to happen.

    Are we sure this is one of the genuine images of the two together? Stalin was notorious for using propaganda that heavily exaggerated his connection to Lenin, including falsifying images.

    I think you listed them in reverse order. That's Lenin on the right.

    I really would like to see a dramatic show about Trotsky, Lenin and stalin. I’m not really a big fan of the Bolsheviks but I can never bring myself to hate stalin and the Bolsheviks because they defeated the Nazis.

    and I hate Nazis.

    Hello everyone, my apologies for the poor quality image and any subreddit rules I may have violated, but I thought I'd share this picture of my great uncle and a few of his mates on V-E Day. He was a portable power generator operator with the 153rd Armored Signal Company of the 13th Armored Division and took part in the Ruhr Pocket operation (1-18 April 1945). He was deployed in Europe from approximately January to July 1945. The Ruhr Pocket operation saw the capture of about 317,000 German soldiers, and he brought back a few souvenirs that I could share, perhaps on a different subreddit. According to his unit's official history, the 153rd ASC was based in Tann, Germany on V-E Day. He brought back several postcards that have descriptions and images from the 13th Armored Division's deployment (apologies if linking to them violates subreddit rules), so here is a link to those plus a couple more pictures of his time overseas: https://imgur.com/a/2G3QwF4

    That looks like a bomb crater rather than a fox hole.

    Hope that guy made it home to whoever is in those letters.

    Based on a cursory google search, this would likely be after the actual taking of Iwo Jima.

    5 week battle. Approx 6k Americans killed, 26k injured

    17k - 18k Japanese “killed or missing” and several thousand kept hiding on the island after the occupation in late March.
