Hürtgen forest and the end of World War II | Free Full DW Documentary

Thousands of soldiers were killed in the last battles of World War II. US troops who fought in the Hürtgen Forest nicknamed it the "Death Factory." This documentary features original film from US archives that bring the battle back to life.

It's estimated that as many as 30 thousand US and German soldiers were killed in fighting in the northern Eifel region of Germany in the autumn and winter of 1944 and 1945. Traces of the battle - old bunkers, munitions, trenches and tank tracks - are still visible even today. The scarred landscape bears witness to a little-known chapter of World War Two. The "Hürtgen Forest" was the last obstacle standing between US forces and the Rhine River and Ruhr. Yet the decision to advance into the thick forest in September 1944 proved to be a fatal mistake. The Americans completely miscalculated North Eifel region's rugged terrain. They became disoriented in an area the German forces, the Wehrmacht, had crisscrossed with trenches and peppered with anti-personnel mines, making the wood into a veritable fortress. Continual rain and fog, followed by snow and frigid temperatures, turned the battle into a scene of dystopian butchery. Author Ernest Hemingway spent 18 days on the front in the Hürtgen Forest. He wrote later, "It was a place where it was extremely difficult for a man to stay alive even if all he did was be there."

This documentary reconstructs the stages of the battle using commentary from survivors of the clash. Among them are the well-known US photographer Tony Vaccaro, US Army veteran James K. Cullen and former Wehrmacht soldier Paul Verbeek. In addition, Hürtgen Forest residents tell of the legacy of the battle, including the threat posed by countless unexploded munitions left in the ground 75 years after the conflict in Europe ended.

John 007 : It's so sad that the German people feel so guilty for what their ancestors brought on the world during the two world wars that they are now allowing their country to disappear by opening their borders to millions of mohammadans whose goal is to force a medieval religion and way of life on the country and killing anyone who doesn't except it.
John 007 : Man should not be killing man at this time in our history with the world so connected all our problems should be dealt with at the table
Gleichtritt : Why would you treat the German fallen soldiers differently than the American? Yes, they were fighting for something else, but they had no choice, they were young and also they were a lot less well informed than we are nowdays....gosh our stupid German office puppets again....
Blazed Tuna : Wish I faught and died there

US threatens Germany with sanctions over Nord Stream 2 gas pipeline | DW News

A dispute between the US and Germany over Russian gas is likely to come to a head this week as US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo embarks on a European tour. The US believes a new pipeline makes Germany too dependent on Russia. There is already one pipeline running under the Baltic Sea. Now a new one, Nord Stream 2, is nearing completion. It's expected to pump some 55 billion cubic meters of gas from Russia to Germany every year. The project has been a major bone of contention between Berlin and Washington. Just last week, US senators threatened to slap sanctions on a Germany's Mukran Port, where essential building materials for the pipeline are stored. That has caused outrage in the port.

Paul K : Russia under Vladimir Putin is a very dangerous prospect. Funding the Taliban against America in Afghanistan, using deadly nerve agent in Salisbury UK, propping up the Venezuelan dictator, hacking research into Covid vaccines, propping up Iran. Do not trust Vladimir Putin.

VW ID.3: The people's electric car? | Check | Volkswagen ID.3 Review

Is the ID.3 the most important EV ever made? Will it make or break Volkswagen? The giant German carmaker needs to reinvent itself after the 2015 diesel scandal. VW wants the ID.3 to be a midrange bestseller like the Beetle and the Golf before it. So can the ID.3 become the electric car of the people? As one of the biggest car manufactures in the world, VW is betting the bank on leading the car market once again, in an electric future.

NB: If you are wondering: Reinhold's car was a 1st Max. But as you can't order that model any more, we opted for the stats of the Pro S model. The report is more a discussion of the "People's Car" aspect than an in-depth technical test ;-)

John Capehart : Range??
2nd3rd1st : They say GAS pedal and THROTTLE. Are they not aware that battery cars don't have either?
Not much different to say accelerator, Power pedal or Go pedal.
Trivia Challenge : Needs to be less than £25k to be for the masses.
pillowpants337 : I understand why they made the front of the ID3 look the way they did, however I think it would look ever better if the car had the lower grill "C" lights like the eGolf/eUp. Maybe it could be added to one of the higher trim levels?
Lillebror Jensen : Only 2 Versions? Not 3 !!
John Edwards : Its too much like BMW's i3...
GET2222 : $42,000 for a golf hatchback? Haha... why would I reward a company who lies to the world?
