A bear, named Wojtek, reportedly fought alongside his fellow Polish soldiers at the savage Battle of Monte Cassino in the spring of 1944, carrying heavy crates of mortar shells. With the approval of the Polish high command, the company's emblem was then changed to one showing a bear carrying a massive artillery shell. After the war, Wojtek lived in Edinburgh Zoo until his death in 1963. Books, statues and even a documentary keep the memory of his unique service alive.

This German soldier carries the Sturmgewehr 44, the first "assault" (battle) rifle to come into mass production. The StG 44 was far superior to anything the Allies had to deploy, but endemic industrial shortages prevented its full implementation throughout the German army. In the end, its appearance in the battlefield came too late to influence the outcome of the conflict. Ww2 History, Military History, Ww2 Soldiers, Grande Guerra, Wwii Photos, Military Photos
