Exactly! Wars are sad episodes of our country's lives. Some day we'll be able to live in peace, without armies. Starting with lationamerica, the most peaceful region of the world!

Salutações do Brasil!
Obrigado por mais um grande Artigo Jinxx71!!!
Desta vez é sobre a minha nação.
O que posso dizer é o seguinte, no Brasil residiam o maior número de membros do NSDAP fora da Alemanha entre 1931 a 1943 (após isso passou a operar na clandestinidade). Sendo obrigado a trocar de lado (diplomaticamente) no meio da guerra. Houveram sabotagens na costa atlântica e vários marinheiros brasileiros foram mortos em um ataque que supostamente teria vindo de um submarino alemão (o que hoje é considerado um absurdo).
Milhares de nazistas foram presos nesta época aqui no Brasil.
A verdade é que fomos a guerra contra nossa própria vontade...
Vocês sabem do que estou falando, Navios de Guerra torpedeados por americanos no litoral norte do Brasil... Baependi e o Itagiba... Para contrariar a opinião pública tentando defamar os países do Eixo (o qual o Brasil fazia parte antes de Pearl Harbour dia da infâmia)...




Salutations of Brazil! Thanks for plus a great Jinxx71 Article! Of this time he is on my nation. What I can say is the following one, in Brazil they inhabited the biggest number of members of the NSDAP are of Germany enter 1931 the 1943 (after this passed to operate in clandestinity). Being obliged to change of side (diplomatically) in the way of the war. They had had sabotages in the coast Atlantic and some Brazilian sailors had been died in an attack that supposedly he would have come of a German submarine (what today is considered a nonsense). Thousands of nazis had been imprisoned here at this time in Brazil. The truth is that we were the war against our proper will…
You know of what I am speaking, Warships loss by hide and dirty work from North Americans in the coast north of Brazil… Baependi and the Itagiba… To oppose the public opinion trying to against the Axis (include Brazil before Pearl Harbour day of infamy)…

This article has lack of historical accuracy.

1st: "Vargas as dictator". Getulio Vargas was president of Brazil FOUR times (sometimes elected by the people, sometimes not). AFTER the war, Vargas was overthrown, but was elected senator an as president later. Looks like Brazilians didn't hate so much Vargas. Really.

2nd: "Brazilian soldiers fought for democracy and they had not democracy in home". Maybe. But I'm waiting anxious for the article about "Black American Soldiers". If you think that war was only for democracy, that black US soldiers really had nothing to fight, because they had no democracy at home. You can watch Spike Lee's "Miracle at St Anna" to learn about that


I agree with you. In the same points...

Well, this is partly my fault. Jinxx was asked to write content about units that were involved in, or stories related to, the Monte Cassino campaign. That said, we can always write another article. There are certainly more stories to share than one article can hold. :)

Its a good article but we should keep in mind the bravery of the untried Brasilian forces fighting veteran German elite units with old trash equipment. I would like to see as well an article on the mechanised Negro units in the US Army during the World War 2. They also were very valourous and killed many German tanks.

And yes, Vargas was a ditactor, but he is still praised for a lot of brazilians (not my case...).

Bom... os "USA" mandaram roupas, tanques, aviões e armas nas mãos dos brasileiros... e a criatividade e os "elementos surpresa" concluíram o feito com um sucesso inesperado... Nós do Brasil devemos ter orgulho da garra desses soldados, pois a coisa lá foi dura e feia.

Fast translation:
Well... USA gave the clothes tanks, planes and guns to the brazillians... and the brazillians creativity and surprise elements finish the job with unexpected success... We (from brazil) should be proud of these soldiers, because there the work was hard and ugly.

Excellent Job! :) As a game designer for Old Dominion GameWorks miniatures wargame Mein Panzer, I have been collecting bits and pieces for a Brazilian chapter in our game. May I ask what your resources were; especially the pictures?

Oh, yeah! That was cool! I didnt expected to see something about the FEB here! This is great!

I posted something in another topic and I'm bringing it to here:


Curiosities of the FEB: (Força Expediciona Brasileira - Brazilian Expeditionary Force)

- The legend says that the brazilians was ready to keep the advance out of Italy before any american company, but the american commander hold us down.

- Walt Disney drew a mascot to us (and it's not Zé Carioca, fuck thank you to ask ¬¬), but we keeped one done by ourselfs.

- Our motto was "A cobra vai fumar", something like "The snake will smoke". An expression meaning something like "something impossible will happen" or "now its fucking seriouly" around here. (around here!? Maybe in northeast Brazil! Nobody speak something like that around here, in São Paulo state!)

- The brazilians named their guns with woman names, 'cause most of the soldiers didn't speak english and dont know how to pronounce their english names. (Ow... well... fortunately they know how to shot it)
- Before the war, Brazil was proned to the Axis, but neutral (both USA and Germany had plans to invade Brazil if needed). When USA joined the war, they offered us some monetary benefits, including funds to build the CSN, Companhia Siderúrgica Nacional (National Steel Company), our first steel plant. Than we joined Allied side (Germany also sunk some of our merchant vessels before that... Hitler, always a coward backstabber)

- Apart from the FEB, FAB (Força Aérea Brasileira - Brazilian Air Force) also fought in the war.


Curiosities of the of World War 1: The Great Battle of the Marmots!

No, Brazil didnt fought in WW1... despite The Battle of the Marmots! An armed brazilian trade ship saw something thet they thought was a periscope... AND SHOT THE CRAP OF IT!!! YEAH!!! WE SHOT IT A LOT, UNTIL IT STOP MOVING!!!... Did you guess the rest? We killed a lot of marmots... oh, yeah, die you evil creatures!!! (yes, embaracing but this is real)

Seja bem vindo ao time, Petrobras!
A história da FEB é tão rica e, infelizmente, tão desconhecida do grande público, que fico feliz em ver que fora do país, nossos Pracinhas são lembrados com tanto carinho e, mesmo dentro de nossas fronteiras, ainda há pessoas que conheçam, cultuem e espalhem as histórias de bravura, abnegação e sacrifício deles.
