My coworker Kalle is analyzing one of my historymagazines.

I stumbled upon this movie while zapping. RED DAWN from 2012.

The North Koreans launches a surprice attack at USA and drops paratroopers in Washington. A teenage group start a resistance group called the Wolverines and now its time for guerilla warfare!

The movies biggest problem is it has no real story and the casting is a bit weak and anonymous. This is a movie that should have been made as a serie instead with stronger story and lots of dark humor. 
It won the prize EDA Special Mention Award as "Sequel or Remake That Shouldnt Have Been Made" 2012.

Just think if they had made it a serie with guest appearances in every section...Mel Gibson and Danny Glover drinking beer in the garage or Clint Eastwood as grumpy neighbour with a shotgun? Bruce Willis sitting in his car while paratroopers land at the street or Sylvester Stallone baking cookies in his kitchen? Schwartzenegger sitting on his porch with a cigar being bullied by the North Koreans until its payback time. Now wouldnt that had been fun?

I bought this military WW2 RTS retrogame in 2007. The servers are still up with lots of players.

Horribly addictive game though it has lots of design flaws that hasnt been fixed by Relic or SEGA (but they still want your money!).
You can download it from Steam.

You build a base and start pumping out soldiers and vehicles. Why not try a barbecueparty with the Sherman flamethrower tank? Or blow up the bridge when the german assault force passes by? Or sneak in a bunch of engineers to place explosives on all enemy buildings?

An advice...if you play 2vs2 automatch games...its full of sc-mbags so you will get LOTS of insults from your teamplayers telling you how bad you are. You never get any good advice...only insults. 
So I placed a postitnote on the screen to cover the chat. Problem solved! 
Oh and one more thing...you have to cancel all jobmeetings the closest weeks...its addictive. (just one more game!).

My latest catch. With an article about Totenkopf or Deathheads.

On the 26 of May 1940 the surviving 99 men from Royal Norfolk regiment surrendered to Totenkopf at Le Paradis, north of Arras France, after having run out of ammunition.

The Offizier in command, Obersturmfuhrer Fritz Knöchlein disarmed the men and placed them against a wall in front of two machineguns where they were gunned down and murdered. The survivors were then killed with bayonets and rifles. Two men escaped alive by playing dead among the bodies of their comrades, Albert Pooley and William O'Callaghan and hid for three days in a farmyard.

Knöchlein was awarded the Ritterkreutz in Kurland 1944 and survived the war. He was captured and hanged in Hameln the 21 jan 1949. .

Some of my collection of Stalingrad magazines. Seems like every mag needs to have its fair share of Stalingrad ones or twice every year.

Picture two and three shows some tips on books.

Tip of the week: this weeks book "Stalingrad" by Antony Beevor 1998 is 480 pages thick and consists of several parts. It starts with an overview of the battles from the beginning of Operation Barbarossa to the attack on Moscow, the russian counterattack in dec 41 to the german summeroffensive in 42 that would lead to the epic battle of Stalingrad.

We also get an interesting description of why general Paulus who never had commanded a division nor an army group got command over the 6th army.

The fighting on the steppes between Don and Volga is handled together with the assault on the oilfields in Kaukasus that was the main goal before Hitler changed his mind and also wanted that city with Stalins name. 
Then we follow the rattenkrieg in Stalingrad and the fighting from building to building.

Zjukovs trap with the encirclement of 6th army, Luftwaffes inadequate support, Mansteins assault to save the doomed army and two months of survival before the final capitulation is handled.

Beevor has written an easy to read and very well written book of the battle for Stalingrad depending on diaries, letters, interrogation protocols and medicine reports. 
On picture two and three you can see some of the references hes been using.

My weekends movie is Stalingrad from 1993 by Joseph Vilsmaier telling the story of five men trying to survive in the ruins and battlehardened hell of the famous russian town. It tries to show us the reality of war with men shitting in their pants, horror and confusion of battle instead of heroic charges. 
The movie took five months to film in different locations, almost as long as the actual battle of Stalingrad and involved over 12000 persons. The music is also memorable and adds to the overall feeling of the movie.

Im celebrated 400 followers last week after waiting for it several months. Now its down to 397 again. Its like having a birthday cake and get it removed from the table before you can eat it. But thanks anyway ;) .

Here is my collection of old retrogames from mostly the 2000 era. It all started in 1995 with that Command & Conquer RTS game. Im a desktop table general inventing revolutionary battlefield tactics in countless hours of on-screen combat.

The best moments was to snipe the driver with that Jarmen Kell guy and steal the enemys vehicle in C&C Generals, or to sneak into the enemys base in CoH with a truck loaded with engineers and plant demoexplosives on all buildings while the driver gives covering fire with the .50 .
Or to meet the mighty Tigertank with my weak M10 and drive around it in a circle so the 88 in the slow turret couldnt aim at me :) (yeah its actually from this game that Brad Pitt got his tanktactics in Fury from ;) .

Which one is your favourite game?

My weekends movie is a masterpiece from 2004. 'Der Untergang' or 'Downfall' follows the final days of the Third Reich and nazi Germany where Adolf Hitler in his bunker rules over the last remnants of his fast shrinking Empire. Traudl Junge is the young secretary to the Fuhrer who watch the madness at close range when Hitler still believes Germany can achieve Victory and orders his men to fight to the bitter end.

Bruno Ganz does an amazing performance as Adolf Hitler and always gives the feeling that its the real Fuhrer we are watching. The famous 'blowup' scenes when Hitler get bad news is where he really excellence and its barely i dare breathing while the fury rages on.

The scenerys are excellent with the interior of the bunker, its surroundings and shots from the streets of Berlin with russian shelling.

The movie got 21 wins and 29 nominations incl one Oscar nomi for Best Foreign Language Film of the Year. .

To save up on money the Swedish government decided the military recruits have to create their own ammunition. With icebullets. 
Naaah its just me prepping an icecold 'Saft' drink for the weekends movie ;) . .

Watching 'The Lost Battalion' from 2001 based on a real story. In 1918 near the end of WW1 an American battalion is cut off and surrounded in the Argonne forest trying to survive until help arrives.

Most action take place inside the wood with close quarter combat with men killing men using machineguns, rifles, pistols, bayonets, flamethrowers or fists with blood splattering all over the face showing the dark side of mankind. To kill or be killed. Survival. A place where death comes quickly...or slowly while Major Whittlesey tries to keep his men alive.

The movie got two wins and seven nominations incl a Christopher Award for television o cable and a Golden Reel Award for best sound editing in television.

Have you always wanted to fly hot and low in a helicopter with loudspeakers at full effect? Or just add some fresh coolness to your lousy car? Now its your chance to do that with this nice wireless bluetooth speaker mounted in a .50 cal ammo can. Also called the A-BOX from Thodio. (did someone mention Apocalypse Now?) Well you can read more about it here:
https://store.thodio.com/products/thodio-a-box-heavy-edition

I also have a cool idea for Thodio for your next product...what about a Claymore mine with a radio? for the beach. Place a Claymore radio in the sand and you probably get the following 50 meters totally free to enjoy yourself ;) Just send me 5% for the idea when you start selling it, ok?

I visited the annual book sale at Storheden and only found one military book. But what a catch! The military history of weapon, equipment, tactics and battles from the Roman Empire to American Civil War to WW1 and WW2 to modern warfare. An overview of the madness of mankind.

On my way out i stopped at the magazines and found a big fat special about trench warfare and the battles of WW1...and a nice one about German uniforms under WW2. I just couldnt resist those little beauties. This are localized versions from Bonnier Publications so i dont think there are english versions of them.

But im doing a better post about the weapons book in an upcoming post so follow if you wanna know more about it.

Flying hot and low Part 3: The SH37 Viggen outside Biltema was placed there in february 2009 after being transported from F21 museum. The founder of Biltema Sten Åke Lindholm have a big flying interest and Biltema had bought two Spitfires and a Mustang for use at flyshows. So he thought it would be a nice idea with a Viggen outside Biltema.

Funny facts: There should also be a button at the concrete under the plane. Hit it and the sounds of a flyby is coming from loudspeakers.

Funny facts 2: There is/was a group of "Urban 63 pilots" that have flown this particular example, meeting every summer drinking coffee under the U-63 (according to an article from 2010 written by Mats Eriksson, chief of Biltema Luleå).
.
Funny facts 3: In this article from NSD you can see a picture of the Viggen being transported to Biltema while it passes the bridge at Gäddvik: www.nsd.se/nyheter/planets-sista-fard-gick-till-storheden-4459097.aspx
