    These two were part of a 10 man foreign volunteer squad called "team baguette", part of the large foreign legion attached to the Ukraine military. They are volunteers who previously worked for the US military, but are not active duty anymore. They were captured in the Kharkov area, having bad intel that Russians weren't where they were going.

Billow, who died May 17, was attached to the Army’s 285th Field Artillery Observation Battalion when his unit surrendered and he was taken prisoner by Waffen SS soldiers as German forces launched an offensive in Belgium to try to change the war’s tide in December 1944. According to various accounts, the Germans opened fire on the unarmed prisoners in a field, killing more than 80 in what came to be known as...

  • Out of ammunition, Ukraine's 36th Marine Brigade surrenders to the Russians

    04/13/2022 9:07:37 AM PDT · by hotsteppa · 40 replies
    More than 1,000 Ukrainian marines have surrendered in the besieged port of Mariupol, Russia’s defense ministry said on Wednesday of Moscow’s main target in the eastern Donbas region which it has yet to bring under its control. If the Russians take the Azovstal industrial district, where the marines have been holed up, they would be in full control of Mariupol, Ukraine’s main Sea of Azov port, which would allow Russia to reinforce a land corridor between separatist-held eastern areas and the Crimea region that it seized and annexed in 2014.

    A captured Russian soldier has described how he was shot at and his comrade killed after fellow troops opened fire on them when they tried to protect Ukrainian civilians. In a video, the POW described how he and a lieutenant tried to save a woman in her 20s, and her mother, after Russian soldiers were given orders to fire on civilians on February 24 in Kharkiv. In the clip, the captured soldier claimed he was shot in the foot, and the lieutenant killed, when other troops realised the pair weren't shooting at civilians. It comes as a separate video showed...

    A Russian commander captured by Ukraine condemned Moscow’s “genocide” invasion — saying in a remarkable televised statement that the troops were duped into believing Kyiv had been overthrown by Nazis and needed liberating. National Guard Lt. Col. Astakhov Dmitry Mikhailovich, who was captured along with two other soldiers, said he had been told they were being sent to help Ukraine because it was “dominated by a fascist regime” and that “nationalists and Nazis had seized power.” “Obviously, this information was unilateral information,” Mikhailovich told reporters in a video that emerged Monday.

    Ukrainian Pres. Zelensky claims morale of Putin's Russian forces is deteriorating in a powerful address adding his forces have so-far killed 9,000 invaders, a claim disputed by Moscow. He also said his country had thwarted Russia's sneaky plans, and he was proud of the heroic resistance to Moscow's shocking invasion. "We are a nation that broke the enemy's plans in a week. Plans written for years: sneaky, full of hatred for our country, our people. Our military, our border guards, our territorial defense, even ordinary farmers capture the Russian military every day.

    The Sixth Circuit Court has denied the federal government’s motions to transfer the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) vaccine mandate lawsuit to Washington, D.C. and hold it in abeyance, dealing another blow to the Biden regime that has banked on the relatively small agency’s ability to enforce its divisive mandate. In the court documents, posted to Twitter by populist pundit Election Wizard, the Court denied the government’s motion to transfer the case to Washington, D.C., denying the government’s request to hold the case in abeyance. The Court also granted two unions, the International Electrotechnical Commission and the IEC Florida...

    There were about half a dozen prisoner of war camps in Tennessee during World War II — the best known of which was Camp Crossville, in Cumberland County. We know a lot more about Camp Crossville than the others because of Gerhard Hennes. Hennes was a German officer captured in North Africa in May 1943. Five months later, he entered the gates of Camp Crossville, where he was interred for two years. After World War II, Hennes would become an American citizen, and in 2004 he published The Barbed Wire: POW in the USA. In it he gives a detailed...

    Clarksville, TN (CU) - The story of prisoners of war being held at Fort Campbell isn’t discussed very often. Like anything else with history, it can be a complicated discussion. During World War 2, the United States operated 142 internment camps for German prisoner’s of war. One of which was located at Fort Campbell, Kentucky. The military constructed 3 separate POW camps on the base that included housing up to 1,000 prisoners per facility. How did they end up here?
