Transferred to Fifteenth Air Force in December 1943, the 96th engaged in bombing operations in Italy in support of the Allied drive north toward Rome; the Invasion of southern France, and the campaigns against German forces in northern Italy, Jun 1944-May 1945. Their primary mission being the long-range bombardment of strategic targets, the 96th attacked oil refineries, aircraft factories, steel plants, and other objectives in Germany, Poland, Czechoslovakia, Austria, Hungary, Yugoslavia, Romania, and Greece. In one mission, the 96th where en route to bomb a vital aircraft factory at Steyr on 24 Feb 1944, when the group found itself greatly outnumbered by enemy interceptors, it maintained its formation and bombed the target, receiving a Distinguished Service Cross (DSC) for the performance. On the following day, while on a mission to attack aircraft factories at Regensburg, it met similar opposition equally well and was awarded a second DSC. The 96th served as part of the occupation force in Italy after V-E Day and inactivated in Italy on 28 Feb 1946.

96th Bomb Squadron.jpg
World War I

Before embarking upon its first aerial warfare mission, the 96th BOMB SQ agreed upon a black triangle outlined by a white strip enclosing the profile of a red dare devil thumbing his nose at the ground with onr of his hands while he held a white bomb in his other hand. This distinctive emblem was designed by Harry O. Lawson, the squadron’s graphic artist, Symbolic of the “Daredevil” qualities of fearlessness and boldness, the dare devil characterizes the spirit of the Squadron and its past and present personnel. The bomb represents the historic mission of the unit, which it has performed since the beginning of aerial warfare in World War I

THE 96TH Aero Squadron was America’s first bomb squadron. It was formed at Kelly Field, Texas. Originally consisting of 80 college graduate and dropout volunteers whom passed the U.S.Army Air Service’ highest and most stringent aeronautical qualifications to join what was to be an elite group.

IMG_7408.JPG (155592 bytes)

The 96th saw combat as part of the 1st Day Bombardment Group, supporting the French Eighth and U.S. First Army from June through November 1918. It operated French-made Breguet 14 planes and was involved in an embarrassing fiasco when the entire squadron landed around Koblenz, Germany by accident, providing all of their planes intact to the Germans. Nonetheless, it was the most heavily engaged and most successful USAS bomber squadron.

World War II


Lockheed B17G Fortress 96th Bomb Squadron

After the Attack on Pearl Harbor, the 96th served on antisubmarine duty along the mid-Atlantic coastline . Then re-equipped with B-17F Flying Fortresses, the 96th was assigned to the Pacific Northwest for transition and combat training in late 942 and early 1943.Then they were moved to North Africa in April 1943 to carry out bombing missions in Algeria and Tunisia as part of Twelfth Air Force during the North African Campaign. The missions included support and interdiction, as well as bombing targets that included marshaling yards, airdromes, troop concentrations, bridges, docks, and shipping. Participated in the defeat of Axis forces in Tunisia, Apr-May 1943; the reduction of Pantelleria and the preparations for the invasion of Sicily, May-Jul 1943; the invasion of Italy, Sep 1943.

Transferred to Fifteenth Air Force in December 1943, the 96th engaged in bombing operations in Italy in support of the Allied drive north toward Rome; the Invasion of southern France, and the campaigns against German forces in northern Italy, Jun 1944-May 1945. Their primary mission being the long-range bombardment of strategic targets, the 96th attacked oil refineries, aircraft factories, steel plants, and other objectives in Germany, Poland, Czechoslovakia, Austria, Hungary, Yugoslavia, Romania, and Greece. In one mission, the 96th where en route to bomb a vital aircraft factory at Steyr on 24 Feb 1944, when the group found itself greatly outnumbered by enemy interceptors, it maintained its formation and bombed the target, receiving a Distinguished Service Cross (DSC) for the performance. On the following day, while on a mission to attack aircraft factories at Regensburg, it met similar opposition equally well and was awarded a second DSC. The 96th served as part of the occupation force in Italy after V-E Day and inactivated in Italy on 28 Feb 1946.

Cold War

Reactivated under Strategic Air Command on 1 July 1947 and equipped with B-29 Superfortresses. Trained for strategic bombardment missions during the postwar years, being upgraded to the new atomic bomb-capable B-50 Super-fortress in 1948. Replaced the propeller-driven B-50s with new B-47E Stratojet swept-wing medium bombers in 1954, capable of flying at high subsonic speeds and primarily designed for penetrating the airspace of the Soviet Union. In the late 1950s, the B-47 was considered to be reaching obsolescence, and was being phased out of SAC’s strategic arsenal.

In September 1996, the 96th deployed and launched attacks against military targets in Iraq in support of Operation Desert Strike. It earned the 1996 Mackay Trophy for the 33-hour long mission from Louisiana to Iraq and back as the most meritorious flight of the year.

TRENCH WRITING INSIDE

1941 GREECE 1945 KKE

“KKE” & “GREECE”

Founded in 1918, the Leftist/Communist Party of Greece , better known by its initials, KKE, is the oldest Greek political party in the last 100 years. 2on the Greek political scene. KkE was founded on 4 November 1918 as the Socialist Labour Party of Greece. KKE rallies a significant amount of support within the organized working-class movement. The KKE stands in elections and has representatives in the Greek Parliament, local government, and the European Parliament.

Greece

Greece dealt the first victory for the Allies by resisting the Italian invasion on 28 October 1940 and pushing Mussolini’s forces back into Albania. Hitler was reluctantly forced to send forces to bail out his ally and subdue Greece (Operation Marita). The resulting Battle of Greece in April 1941 delayed the invasion of the Soviet Union by six weeks. This fact, combined with the heavy losses of the German Fallschirmj¤ger over Crete, effectively put a halt to large-scale German airborne operations for the remainder of the war. The country was occupied by Germany, Italy and Bulgaria, while the government and the King fled the country to Egypt, from they supported a vigorous Resistance movement in Greece from 1942 on.

dominated largely by the leftist National Liberation Front (EAM). Throughout 1943, the guerrillas succeeded in liberating much of the country’s mountainous interior, establishing a free zone called “Free Greece”. After the Italian capitulation in September 1943, the Germans took over the Italian zone, often accompanied by bloodshed and atrocities, as the Italians tried to resist (as in Cephallonia), or as the Allies tried to occupy Italian-held areas (the Dodecanese Campaign). As the tide of the war turned, and Liberation approached, the Resistance became divided along political lines, and a mini civil war ensued between EAM, rightist resistance groups and the collaborationist government’s Security Battalions.

An agreement establishing a national unity government was reached in the May 1944 Lebanon conference, which eased tension somewhat in the final months of the Occupation. With the advance of the Red Army through Eastern Europe in summer 1944, the German forces withdrew from the Greek mainland in OctoberNovember 1944, although garrisons were left behind in many islands, including Crete, where the German forces surrendered after the unconditional surrender on 8 May 1945. The returning government in exile, backed by British forces, soon clashed with EAM forces in Athens, in the first episode of the Greek Civil War; a conflict that would last until 1949 and leave a divisive legacy in Greek politics and society until the 1970s.

WWII
GREEK or TURKISH.

CRESCENT AND SUN/STAR

WHICH COULD BE ??

Turkey was neutral until several months before the end of the war, at which point it joined the Allies. Prior to the outbreak of war, Turkey signed a Mutual Aid Pact with France and Britain in 1939, yet remained neutral after the German invasion of France. In June of 1941, after neighboring Bulgaria joined the Axis and allowed Germany to move troops through to invade Yugoslavia and Greece, Turkey signed a non-aggression pact with Germany.

Turkey was an important producer of chromite, a key ingredient in the manufacture of stainless steel and refractory brick to which the Germans had limited access. Sale of chromite to Germany or to the Allies (who mainly bought in order to preclude sale to Germany) was the key issue in Turkey’s negotiations with both sides.

Turkey halted its sales to Germany in April, 1944 and broke off relations in August. In February, 1945, after the Allies made its invitation to the inaugural meeting of the United Nations conditional on full belligerency, Turkey declared war on the Axis powers, but no Turkish troops ever saw combat
