8 Assault 1945

Assault 1945

Posted on April 18, 2012 by team

In April 14-15th, “the club of the military history of the 17th airborne division” (Klub vojenské historie 17th Airborne Division o.s.) held an annual reconstruction of battles between the German and American troops of 1945.

In 1945 the third American army liberated the Czech cities: Ceske Budejovice, Pilsen, Karlovy Vary and was ready to proceede further to Prague. But in May, 5th, commander of General Staff of Red Army A. Antonov demanded from general Eisenhower “not to move allied troops in Czechoslovakia to the east from the iniatially planned line”. Everybody understood that those who would liberate Prague would be able to impose their political and economical rules on the Czech government. There were three alternatives: “western democracy”, “market economy” and “the most advanced public system” – Leninism-Stalinism. Stalinism won.

    More nazi glorification on ER. So much neo-nazi propaganda here, so it’s no surprise that ER is a favorite gathering place for anticommunist.

    “Americans shooting the captives”????

    Not sure how this is historically accurate, at least not in this stage and location of the war.

      I know, if I had a dime for every American soldier with a Nazi tattoo…

      yeah…They are always the “good guys” right ? Shooting surrenderd soldiers who killed your friends was done by every army in WWII…USA included

    “Americans shooting the captives?” I smell a war crime. But isn’t war crime like saying the fire was hot? And thanks ER for a most accurate statement: “Stalinism won.” Note it’s not communism won. Words matter.

    Já trvám na tom, že Plzeň osvobodil Patton, s tanky a děly, na džípech bílý hvězdy měli… :D
    BTW, what are these photos doing on English Russia, they have no connection with the Evil Empire.

    Both the American soldiers and the German soldiers are too fat, nothing like the front troops of any war. Maybe reenacters could be more accurate in this aspect as well…
