Do you have any relatives that fought in ww2 /pol/? Anonymous 11/23/2019 (Sat) 23:03:45 ID:7d777e No. 16016
My grandfather fought for italy and continued to fight for mussolini when italy was divided.
My Grandfather was a Pole. He was mistaken for a Volksdeutsche and conscripted into the German army. Served his first year in a punitive unit for 'pretending' not to speak German. Defected, or rather intentionally became a russian POW between 1943 and 1944. Was treated with leniency as a non-German. Don't remember the details of his imprisonment but I think he stayed near the front line and did non-combat labor. Then was allowed to return home not long after the war ended. He says he isn't proud of having been in the Wehrmacht and for not defecting sooner but I'm proud of him.
>>16016 Yes, my Great Grandfather and his Brother in law fought for the 7th SS Mountain Division Prinz Eugen. Brother in Law was killed in action by Partisans but my Great Grandfather survived. I am honored to be related to them.
>>16016 my grandfather lied about his age so he could serve anglokike garrison duty in Africa.
>>16087 Your grandfather sounds like a huge faggot.
Grandfather fought for NDH, croatian independent state, killed in 1959 by partisans
My grandfather fought for the US army against Germany. I don't hate him for it. Even General Patton didn't know what a mistake that he'd made until the war was won by the Allies. "We defeated the wrong enemy".

>>16087 Ah yes, the niggers of Europe at it again. Slavs will never learn, will they?
>>16016 Both grandfathers fought in the red army as tankers. One was KIA and the other lived to see my birth and teenage years. I had many discussions with the one that lived and I was pleased to see that we were ideologically very similar. He hated niggers and kikes about as much as I do now, and saw what the kikes in the bolshevik regime were doing to the russian people. He really didn't have a choice in serving though and seeing the mess that has become of the world, he regretted fighting on behalf of the commies. I miss him.
>>16016 my grandpa and his brothers fought for jewnited slaves. there wasn't much pride in it so i don't have any stories to share besides one of my great uncles killed himself several years after returning from fighting in north africa and italy.
Two grandfathers who served in the American army. Both joined before the war since they could see the writing on the wall and wanted in before the draft. One served on the aircraft carrier that was not bombed in Pearl Harbour. Later his aircraft carrier was sunk by Japanese torpedo boats. But he survived. Other grandfather served in the army of Gen. Eisenhower. I do not know what he did because everyone who who would have known is now either dead or too far away to ask. I gathered that he fought in that battle where US-English forces smashed their way through the German attempt to bottle them up in Normandy. Oh and I had a grand uncle(?) who occupied Germany after the war and sought out family members (since my family is 90% German) to see how they fared. Apparently not so good but better than those on Soviet side.
My Dad fought at Normandy on D-Day, he was Navy. The ship was fired upon, missed it by 20 feet.

Grandfather served on an airfield as technician (mostly Bf 109). He was in british captivity after the war. One of his two brothers died in Stalingrad the other was in the SS and survived the war (had to cut out his tattoo). His Kar98k, which was buried afterwards, is still in intact. My other Grandpa was too young in WW2 to serve.
>>16016 My Grandpa took part in the de-nazification of Germany.
My grandfather fought for the states. He was a mechanical engineer who repaired planes that were damaged, so he wasnt really in an active combat role. White guilt is bullshit but good fucking god do I feel the anglo guilt.
My Grandfather was a machinist on a uboat, the boat was sunk near norway and he was taken prisoner until the end of the war. Sadly i never spoke with him about it but i have pride in him now.
great grandfather was too old in WW2 but being an SA-Sturmführer and former WW1-cavalry lieutenant he commanded a Volkssturm platoon or company in the battle of Berlin, where he died.
Had a relative that passed away in 1995 or so fight in North Africa in World War II, either as part of Operation Torch or one of the Americans fighting against Erwin Rommel's men. He wouldn't talk about the war with people at all after it was over and he came home, which leads me to suspect that he might have suspected that he was fighting for bullshit reasons. He was a great man, despite millions of others like him who were lied and gaslit to fight against the wrong enemy.
>>16237 >Even General Patton didn't know what a mistake that he'd made until the war was won by the Allies. "We defeated the wrong enemy". Indeed. The actual quote (with added parentheses) is: "We may have been fighting the wrong enemy (Germany) all along. But while we're here (on the Soviet border), we should go after the bastards now, 'cause we're gonna have to fight 'em eventually."
>>16016 arab turk here , grandpa fought for hitler

>>16016 grandfather was 2nd wave Omaha beach. died a couple of years ago. i wanted to ask him if he ever felt we fought the wrong enemy but never did.
>>16016 my granda became actually a partisan for the Action Party in Italy and also was a freemason.
Yeah I had an uncle who fought in WW2 in the Navy. He was serving in a medical capacity on a ship, after some personnel died he had to be their replacement. This meant that he never saw active combat, although I'm unsure if his ship was ever attacked. Unfortunately I was never old enough to have interest so I never talked to him about it. Unlike most veterans he would gladly speak about what happened in the service. When he passed away they did a 21 gun salute and somewhere his dress uniform from the old days is hidden away, probably buried in a box somewhere on the property. But we can't find it, and we've got out there with metal detectors. He bought the lie hook, line, and sinker. It's pretty depressing to think about it. When I visit his old house I see tons of memorabila from the war. When I visit I have a feeling in my heart somewhere between broken-heart, nostalgia for a history that never happened, and hopelessness that it won't ever be corrected in the future. Truly WW2 was the nail in the coffin for the future of Western Civilization.
>>16016 One grandfather was a Major in the Canadian Army but he never saw combat until after the war during peace keeping, probably due to a greatly decreased rank. My other grandfather was one of the pioneers of the SAS as a commando and fought in Burma. The commando's Brother my great uncle also fought in the Navy in the Pacific theater, although I'm not sure what rank he held probably a low one given his background. All of them made it home although the Commando was briefly interred in a POW camp and he was mentally shattered upon returning and abused my father throughout his childhood. The Major retired from the service when his regiment was finally disbanded and died of a heart attack a couple years after.
Grandpa was a Paratrooper in the Wehrmacht. IIRC Paratroopers were an elite unit in the third reich on par with the SS. Never asked him about the war tho and he never talked about it.
>>20775 same anon here again I forgot, my grandma kept telling me about her dad and brothers. I dont remember everything 100% but they fought for the third reich as well, I never bothered asking too much cause I dont want to make my grandma sad. However they fought for the Third Reich just like my Grandpa did, however they fought in Russia I think one brother died, the others were prisoners in the Soviet Union, Im not sure if all came back, but I remember her dad did and so did 2 brothers, however one brother died as they got back home, Im not sure about the dad. Fun Fact is that the brother that was always sickly before the war and had intense stomach problems survived the horrible Food as PoW(something a lot of prisoners died of) and came back healthier than ever. Weird. Power of Mind I guess
