Paris started mobilizing for war in September 1939, when Nazi Germany invaded Poland, but the war seemed far away until May 10, 1940, when the Germans attacked France and quickly defeated the French army. The French government departed Paris on June 10, and the Germans occupied the city on June 14. During the Occupation, the French Government moved to Vichy, and Paris was governed by the German military and by French officials approved by the Germans.
For the Parisians, the Occupation was a series of frustrations, shortages and humiliations. A curfew was in effect from nine in the evening until five in the morning; at night, the city went dark. Rationing of food, tobacco, coal and clothing was imposed from September 1940. Every year the supplies grew more scarce and the prices higher. A million Parisians left the city for the provinces, where there was more food and fewer Germans. The French press and radio contained only German propaganda.
Jews in Paris were forced to wear the yellow Star of David badge, and were barred from certain professions and public places. On 16–17 July 1942, 13,152 Jews, including 4,115 children and 5,919 women, were rounded up by the French police, on orders of the Germans, and were sent to the Auschwitz concentration camp.
An amazing photograph from HMS Belfast during the Arctic Convoys of 1943. The route passed through a hazardous funnel between the Arctic ice pack and German bases in Norway.
Construction of Belfast, the first ship in the Royal Navy to be named after the capital city of Northern Ireland and one of ten Town-class cruisers, began in December 1936. She was launched on St Patrick's Day 1938. Commissioned in early August 1939 shortly before the outbreak of the Second World War, Belfast was initially part of the British naval blockade against Germany. In November 1939, Belfast struck a German mine and spent more than two years undergoing extensive repairs. Belfast returned to action in November 1942 with improved firepower, radar equipment, and armour. Belfast saw action escorting Arctic convoys to the Soviet Union during 1943 and in December 1943 played an important role in the Battle of North Cape, assisting in the destruction of the German warship Scharnhorst. In June 1944, Belfast took part in Operation Overlordsupporting the Normandy landings. In June 1945, Belfast was redeployed to the Far East to join the British Pacific Fleet, arriving shortly before the end of the Second World War. Belfast saw further combat action in 1950–52during the Korean War and underwent an extensive modernisation between 1956 and 1959. A number of further overseas commissions followed before Belfast entered reserve in 1963.

Surrender of the German submarine U-889 to the Royal Canadian Navy near Shelburne, Nova Scotia, 13 May 1945
On 8 May Kapitänleutnant Friedrich Braeucker was ordered by U-boat Headquarters (Admiral Donitz), to surrender, and appears to have complied promptly with the instruction to surface, proceed to the nearest Allied port with a black flag of surrender flying. Two days later, on the 10th of May 1945 a Royal Canadian Air Force plane came upon U-889 motoring on the surface at 10 knots with a black flag flying. A Canadian escort force, W-6, was nearby and sped to intercept U-889 within an hour. At first Braeucker and his men were ordered to Newfoundland (Bay Bulls), however the following day the sub was assigned to HMCS Inch Arran and HMCS Buckingham. These frigates escorted U-889 into Shelburne Harbor, Nova Scotia. There Braeucker formally surrendered and the Royal Canadian Navy boarded the submarine and took possession of her on 13 May. Transferred to the US Navy on 10 Jan 1946, arriving at Portsmouth Navy Yard, NH on 12 Jan 1946. Sunk on 20 Nov 1947 off Cape Cod by US submarine USS Flying Fish. (Colour by Mark)

Otto Skorzeny and Operation Eiche.
Also known as the “Gran Sasso Raid,” 1943’s Operation Eiche saw a team of German commandos pull off the daring rescue of none other than Benito Mussolini. The mission came in the wake of the Allied invasion of Italy, which had resulted in the fascist dictator being expelled from office and arrested by the king of Italy. Concerned that Mussolini was crucial to keeping Italy in the war, Adolf Hitler ordered Waffen SS officer Otto Skorzeny to free “Il Duce” before he could be handed over to the Allies as part of a peace deal. After several false starts and dead ends, Skorzeny and his team tracked Mussolini to the Hotel Campo Imperatore, a ski resort situated on a remote mountaintop in the Apennine range.
With no easy way to reach the resort from the ground, Skorzeny opted for a risky aerial attack. On September 12, 1943, he and a team of commandos made a silent descent on the mountain in twelve gliders and stormed the hotel, easily overwhelming the bewildered Italian guards. After destroying the post’s radio equipment, the commandos located a much-relieved Mussolini, who supposedly exclaimed, “I knew my friend Adolf Hitler would not leave me in the lurch!” Desperate to make his getaway before reinforcements could arrive, Skorzeny convinced one of his support aircraft to make a precarious landing on the rugged mountaintop and then personally escorted Mussolini to safety in Austria. The dictator went on to spend several months as a puppet leader in northern Italy before partisan forces finally captured and killed him in April 1945.

Soon I’ll be watching two massive oceans flowing into each other from such cliffs with @zhenyaswan in South Africa.
Such winter escapes are the most appreciated thing in February and we choose South Africa as it offers the most diverse experience between surfing waves, watching animals and do the most adventurous hikes.
I’m ready for a month of burning sun 🙃
Anyone has some good places to share for a road trip down there?
