German soldiers behind a Sd.Kfz. 251, guarding a village on the eastern front. The two stripes on his sleeve mean he is a Hauptfeldwebel (not a rank but an appointment). Notice the swastika flags already hanging in the background.  (1943?) Does anyone know what’s going on in this picture?

A newly delivered Russian T-26 tank sent to the ARP (Popular Army for the Republic of Spain) during the Spanish war. The first ever “ram attack” with a tank was done one of these T-26s in October 1936 during the battle of Seseña, by running into and destroying a CV-33 Italian tank.

Several pictures of my great grand father lieutenant Max turcat, 34 years old, in Colmar des Alpes, spending his last moments before the general mobilization with his three children. Notice he is wearing a black ribbon around his arm as a widower since his wife had just passed, making it even harder for him to leave his children1939

Tiger I tank crew on the eastern front posing as they camouflage their vehicle with foliage. During the late-war years, large piles of pre-cut branches would be left on the side of the road, to allow retreating troops to quickly set up camouflage. As seen in picture panzer crews were provided with dot uniforms because the black ones immediately alerted enemies that an armored unit were in the area (1944?)

2nd picture of my great-grandfather Lieutenant Max Turcat(in the middle with the large pants) during the same scouting operations on the Italian border with his motorcyclist fusilier squadron of the 21st GRCA under Général Olry’s XVe army corp.
————
Upon seeing how disastrous the early phases of the blitzkrieg were for the french army, the french decided to hastily create massive mechanized units by taking equipment and men wherever they could. Thats how the 4th DLM (light mechanized division) was created on the 10th of june, in which Max and his men would be incorporated.
September 1939

A picture of my great grandfather Max Turcat (officer on the left) during an operation on the Italian border. In 1939 he was an Lieutenant in the 21st GRCA(a reconnaissance group made up of 2 horse mounted squadrons and one motorcyclist fusiliers squadron) Max lead its 4th squad. —————————————
On the 8th of June 1940 he was sent south of Paris to cover the retreat of Général Touchons 7th army and slow down the Germans progression deep into france. It was exactly what his group did, they kept fighting in retreating type gorilla tactics all the way down to North of Bordeaux where hostilities ended on June 25th at midnight September 1939 (would you like more pictures and details about my GGrandfathers story?)
