Spin, strangeness, and charm

A British movietone newsreel about that long-awaited Victory in Europe Day.

There was fighting going on until the last day — and indeed for some days beyond, in some cases by German troops trying to exfiltrate through Russian lines to surrender to the Western Allies.

There was no parallel in the of the decades-long Japanese holdouts like Hiroo Onoda, whose story was the inspiration of the concept album “Nude” by progressive rock band Camel. Two German U-boats, U-530 and U-977, set course for Argentina, which led to lots of postwar speculation and legends.

The very last German troops to lay down their weapons to the Western Allies were the 11-man crew of a Kriegsmarine weather station on Nordaustlandet, the 2nd largest island (after Spitsbergen) in the Svalbard archipelago. They had learned of the surrender by radio, but no transportation could be spared to retrieve them until a Norwegian…

Unconditional surrender

Tuesday 8 May 1945 was ‘Victory in Europe’ (VE) Day, and it marked the formal end of Hitler’s war. With it came the end of six years of misery, suffering, courage and endurance across the world.

Individuals reacted in very different ways to the end of the nightmare: some celebrated by partying; others spent the day in quiet reflection; and there were those too busy carrying out tasks to do either. Ultimately nothing would be quite the same again.

The end of the World War One on 11 November 1918 had come as a shock to many soldiers and civilians because the collapse of the German army had been so sudden. By contrast, it was clear – since at least the beginning of 1945 – that the end of the World War Two was in sight following a series of capitulations. The German forces in Italy surrendered on…

Scourge of Progressivism

Seventy years ago today an avowedly leftist nationalist project surrendered to Allied forces in Europe, bringing to end the horrors of the Second World War in Europe.

“Fundamentally, these new means of political struggle can be traced back to the Marxists,” said one Adolph Hitler to Hermann Raushning in 1935. “I only needed to adopt and further develop them, and I essentially had what we needed. I just had to continue, with greater resolve, where the Social Democrats had failed ten times over because they insisted on trying to achieve their revolution within the framework of democracy. National Socialism is what Marxism could have been if it had freed itself from its absurd, artificial connection with the democratic system.”

If the greatest trick the Devil ever pulled was convincing the world that he didn’t exist, then I submit that the second greatest trick is the idea that 20th century fascism…

When the phone rang and I heard Joe’s voice, I was surprised – I thought we’d already had this conversation, and the issue was settled.

“We’ve had a cancellation Chris; so if you still want to dive the U-853, you’re on the team.”

I was stunned and incredulous from what I just heard… “Do I stillwant to dive the U-853?!” I almost shouted back into the phone. “Of course I still want to dive the U-853!”

“Well then good, because you’re going to make the dive, Chris.” replied Joe, calmly.

“Thank you!” I shouted back!

“We’ll talk more about it later, Chris. Have a good night.”

“Yeah, you too, Joe. You too!”

As I hung up the phone I was elated! Yes, I was really going! I was going on a dive to explore the wreck of a World War II German U-Boat, with the New England Aquarium Dive…

A Stamp A Day

Victory in Europe Day celebrates the formal acceptance by the Allies of World War II of Nazi Germany’s unconditional surrender of its armed forces on Tuesday, 8 May 1945, marking the end of World War II in Europe. VE Day (or V-E Day in the United States) is observed by most Western European states on 8 May with several of the Channel Islands marking their various Liberation Days on 9, 10 and 16 May. Russia, Belarus, Serbia, and a number of other former Soviet bloc countries celebrate on 9 May, Israel also marks VE Day on 9 May, as a result of the large number of immigrants from the former Soviet bloc, although it is not a public holiday. The term VE Day existed as early as September 1944, in anticipation of victory. Other names for the anniversary include Victory Over Fascism Day, Liberation Day or simply Victory Day.

Day 15: Thursday 18th July 2013 – Lompoc, CA to Monterey, CA

Today was the day that the coast highway would start getting really interesting with some nice curves and switchbacks, but the initial section out of Lompoc and up past San Simeon is fairly smooth.

From California, July 2013

From my last trip along this road, I had forgotten how much agriculture there is between Los Angeles and San Francisco. For most of yesterday’s ride and the start of today’s, I was seeing field after field growing vegetables and fruit, sometimes in huge fields of poly tunnels. I haven’t ridden the 101 freeway between LA and SF, always preferring to stick to the coast, but I’ve been told that for pretty much the whole journey there is industrial scale agriculture along the whole road.

At Cayocus, I stopped off for refreshment and noticed that it’s not just British seaside…
