U.S. Army liberation of Konigsberg

U.S. Army liberation Of Konigsberg!
It was the U.S. Army that liberated Konigsberg and I have the photos to prove it.

*** OK It is a big lie, but this is my 1943 Willys jeep in a Memorial Day parade with an World War II B-17 crewman named John Wredling. Mr. Wredling has a big school named for him here in America that my daughter attends.
The next photo is of my jeep camoflaged in orange and black preparing to attack.
Happy New Year from America

One question. Where the given type of a camouflage was used during war.

I am happy that you asked that question! Only a few people know that there was a special German unit fighting in Konigsberg that was made up of entirely "color blind" soldiers. Since these men could not see any color the Army did a study that determined that the orange and and black lines so confused the Germans that they paused long enough for the Americans to charge there positions.

And whence at you the information about "color blind" soldiers, fighting in Konigsberg? In what division they battled?

And it is casual not a joke? :)

Yes, It is joke. I would like to talk about American equipment used by the Soviets however. Studebaker,Willys, Ford and aircraft. Do we have a thread for this topic?

I must tell you that no people in America know anything about battles in East Prussia. After war when Russia and America no longer allies, Germans looked upon as brave soldiers defending civilians from terrible Red Army. People do not know pain inflicted on Russia.

Very good Question! The unit was formed from Norge, Swedish, Finnish and Canadian volunteers who lived above the Artic circle. Since they lived in darkness for half of the year, many had poor eyesight and were color blind. Since they were foreign fighters their papers were "forged" to make it look like they were a normal field kitchen unit under General Lasch. :D

But for what needs the given connection during fight time actually was used. And you and haven't told, in what division they battled?

If you have an information on use of foreign ammunition in East Prussia - this theme will be interesting.
More low I will translate your sentence on ammunition for companions who don't know English.

Для тех, кто не владеет английским, камрад предлагает обсудить в данной теме использование лендлизовской техники в Восточной Пруссии.

In regards to the unit. They were the 666 Kreigsmarine panzer division. They never actully entered in to combat... they were heading to Konigsberg from Oslo, Norway and landed in May,1945. When they got to Konigsberg they were surprised that not only had the city fallen, but that the war was over... so they said "Good bye" and went home.

Your question will not translate to English. Can you write it out in English?
