It measures 1-1/2 inches wide by 2-1/8 inches. October 30, 1941 - Germans reach Sevastopol. In mid-February, after the Soviet push had tapered off, the Germans launched another attack on Kharkiv, creating a salient in their front line around the Russian city of Kursk. [189] An American B-17 bombing raid, by the 8th Air Force, on the Focke Wulf factory in Germany, 9 October 1943 Exploiting poor American naval command decisions, the German navy ravaged Allied shipping off the American Atlantic coast. [190] By November 1941, Commonwealth forces had launched a counter-offensive, Operation Crusader, in North Africa, and reclaimed all the gains the Germans and Italians had made. [191] In North Africa, the Germans launched an offensive in January, pushing the British back to positions at the Gazala Line by early February, [192] followed by a temporary lull in combat which Germany used to prepare for their upcoming offensives. [193] Concerns the Japanese might use bases in Vichy-held Madagascar caused the British to invade the island in early May 1942. [194] An Axis offensive in Libya forced an Allied retreat deep inside Egypt until Axis forces were stopped at El Alamein. [195] On the Continent, raids of Allied commandos on strategic targets, culminating in the disastrous Dieppe Raid, [196] demonstrated the Western Allies' inability to launch an invasion of continental Europe without much better preparation, equipment, and operational security. [197] In August 1942, the Allies succeeded in repelling a second attack against El Alamein [198] and, at a high cost, managed to deliver desperately needed supplies to the besieged Malta. [199] A few months later, the Allies commenced an attack of their own in Egypt, dislodging the Axis forces and beginning a drive west across Libya. [200] This attack was followed up shortly after by Anglo-American landings in French North Africa, which resulted in the region joining the Allies. [201] Hitler responded to the French colony's defection by ordering the occupation of Vichy France; [201] although Vichy forces did not resist this violation of the armistice, they managed to scuttle their fleet to prevent its capture by German forces. [202] The now pincered Axis forces in Africa withdrew into Tunisia, which was conquered by the Allies in May 1943. [203] In early 1943 the British and Americans began the "Combined Bomber Offensive", a strategic bombing campaign against Germany.

The top 100 prime contractors received about two-thirds of the awards by value; the top 10 got about 30 percent; the leading contractor, General Motors, accounted for nearly eight percent. Britain maintained a strong influence in the military and provided it with equipment, instruction, and technicians. But that is not the end of the story, since Rattenbach, decades later and as a senior officer and much respected retired Lieutenant General was commissioned with two other officers (Navy and Air Force) to undertake a full report on the Malvinas war of 1982 which ended in a disastrous surrender and shame for the Argentine armed forces, which effectively had invaded the Falklands in April that year and were expelled 74 days later by a Task Force sent by Margaret Thatcher.

When the bombardment began on 16 Feb, Smith realized it was not even a full three-day bombardment. Hering, a Byslaw (Poland) native, served with the Polish Army during World War II and was a prisoner of war in Germany for five years. This leaves room for millions of civilian war deaths on territory under Soviet control, primarily from malnutrition and overwork; of these, one million may have died in Leningrad alone. He was the man responsible for the planning of the attack on Pearl Harbor, and other major naval operations including the Battle of Midway in which the Japanese lost naval superiority.
