1/ 75 years ago today, US forces liberated #Dachau concentration camp. My maternal grandfather #DavidMaxEichhorn, a Jewish Chaplain, was there. I will spend next week documenting from contemporaneous reports what he saw & did.

2/Time Magazine reporter Sidney Olsen (1908-1995) was with US troops at liberation. Olson’s account of the horrific conditions at #Dachau was part of the most graphic coverage of the war to date. His family hopes to turn his writings into a book.

His maternal uncle was killed by Nazis in #Dachau.

@ChinneryRoy @RT_sputnik @georgegalloway @francisbeckett @GayatriGalloway @RT_com @UKLabour I don't believe you've read much history of WW2... if you had you wouldn't have come out with such an uninformed statement!
1st & foremost, George is correct - Britain fought for 2 years on our own & that is what saved the world... & what America conveniently forgets! ...cont
@ChinneryRoy @RT_sputnik @georgegalloway @francisbeckett @GayatriGalloway @RT_com @UKLabour 2. There were more '#British' troops landed on D-Day than #American troops.
The #OmahaBeach disaster was the #Americans fault - They screwed up there as they did in #NorthAfrica, #Sicily & #Italy & in the #Pacific at #PearlHarbour on #Tarawa & #Pelelieu & elsewhere. ...cont
@ChinneryRoy @RT_sputnik @georgegalloway @francisbeckett @GayatriGalloway @RT_com @UKLabour 3. #USNavy CnC Earnest King caused a disaster in the #Atlantic in late 12.'41-05'42 when over 600 merchant ships were sunk in sight of US coast, because he didn't want to take #British Advice.
Of all the #American commanders only #Eisenhower & Marshall were Not Anglophobes! ..ct

@dancohen3000 @For2000years The Soviet Union's armed forces were responsible for 88% of Nazi Wehrmacht's military deaths - That's nearly 9:10... & gives more reality to weight of combat in the East
We are awash in #USMilitary propaganda about #OmahaBeach & #BattleoftheBulge but the Soviets are forgotten!
@dancohen3000 @For2000years 2. The same applies to fighting #Japan - The Final Battlefield was #Manchuria where the Soviets destroyed a Japanese army of 1M in a matter of days & were threatening to invade Hokkaido when Japan surrendered - This is also forgotten!
#America achieved far less than they claim!
@dancohen3000 @For2000years 3. Russia did more to win #WW2 than has been told by the west & even the #Japanese are now asking questions.
In reality the Japanese Emperor & Military were more afraid of the Soviets invading than they were of #Nuks.
