On a visit to the British National Archive in 2001, Sonke Neitzel made a remarkable discovery: reams of meticulously transcribed conversations among German POWs that had been covertly recorded and recently declassified. Neitzel would later find another collection of transcriptions, twice as extensive, in the National Archive in Washington, D.C. These were discoveries that would provide a unique and profoundly important window into the true mentality of the soldiers in the Wehrmacht, the Luftwaffe, the German navy, and the military in general - almost all of whom had insisted on their own honorable behavior during the war. Collaborating with renowned social psychologist Harald Welzer, Neitzel examines these conversations - and the casual, pitiless brutality omnipresent in them - from a historical and psychological perspective, and in reconstructing the frameworks and situations behind these conversations, they have created a powerful narrative of wartime experience. 1.

High Quality Content by WIKIPEDIA articles! The Machine Gunners is a children's historical novel by Robert Westall published in 1975. It was awarded the Carnegie Medal for that year, and in 2007 was selected by judges of the Carnegie Medal as one of the ten most important children's novels of the past 70 years. A play based on the book has been written by the author, and it has also been adapted for television and radio. The story is set during the Second World War and deals with a group of children living in the North East of England. Their town, Garmouth, regularly suffers from bomb attacks by the German Luftwaffe. The children make a game of collecting war souvenirs, e.g. incendiary bomb fins and pieces of shrapnel. One of the children, Chas McGill, finds a German He 111 that crashed in the area and takes a fully operational machine gun and two thousand rounds of ammunition, with the help of a friend, Cyril "Cemtery/Cem" Jones, intending to set up their own fortress.

The Weserflug We 271 was a German flying boat active during World War II.This amphibious flying boat was produced in 1938 by the German aviation company Weser Flugzeugbau GmbH. The aircraft was a twin engine, all-metal, four seat transport with a cantilevered wing. Its wheels retracted into wells in its outrigger under wing floats. The We 271 first flew on June 28, 1939. World War II English language historical literature gives only very minimal information about the operational history of these machines, aside from the fact that they were employed by the Luftwaffe as light passenger transport during the early years of the war.
