Never, never, never give up.
Now this is not the end. It’s not even the beginning of the end. But it, perhaps, the end of the beginning.
He also had many more
Dunkirk was a huge world war 2 operation. It,s code name was operation dynamo. The Germans had made a huge push on the allied troops in France and forced them onto the beach,s of Dunkirk. Other 300,000 men were stuck on the beach for 10 horrific day’s and eventually over 300,000 of them got rescued by a hastily made fleet of about 800 boats. Most of those boats were Military however some of the troops were saved by civilians.
“Josh, bro are you excited for the bombs to hit?” questioned Lonnie as he jumped up and down screaming “its gonna look awesome”, “Obviously not and just remember you wont be here to see it anyway!” answered Josh. As the conversation got extremely awkward, planes were coming in and they looked like Germans Josh thought they were getting there babysitters the next day but obviously not. (Josh could see a weird shape falling from the sky in fact a lot of them almost like a BOMB.) Josh was running faster than he had ever ran before with Lonnie chasing behind him “I forgot my chocolate to survive can we please go back and get it?” questioned Lonnie “absolutely not do you have a brain we could get killed if we go back!” shouted Josh but then things got even more scary bombs were starting to hit the ground and destroy the place , but then suddenly out of nowhere “LONNIE A BOMB” SCREAMED Josh then “BANG!!!…”
World War Two
I am going to tell you ten very interesting fact’s. Did you know 80,000,000 people died in world war two. Also did you know that Hitler killed himself and his wife and he even killed his dog. He did all of that because he was losing World War Two. World War Two started because Hitler wanted to rule the world but people wouldn’t let him so it caused a World War Two. World War Two ended in 1939 1 of September-1945 2 of September and now hopefully there won’t be a World War Three. Did you know that Germany surrendered before Japan and also Britain won World War Two, a lot of interesting things happened in World War Two. Also did you know, Amazingly, during the course of the war, German forces advanced through Europe. Did you know that the group most heavily targeted by the Nazis were the Jews there are some mind blowing facts about World War Two.
It was the day the bombing hit London, people screaming and going crazy all over the place on our street! The bombing day was only a few days after my 10th birthday however it wasn’t that exciting because all I got was a Few sweets and not much else. My mother was panicking and worrying as if we were going to die however it was all ok. This was the first time I actually saw a bomb hit near our street but our house wasn’t ok. It was on the end of the street and was damaged badly…
Me and my mother were in the tube station to get shelter: luckily a bomb didn’t hit straight above us other wise we would be hurt or injured terribly as for others. The Nazis didn’t care who they killed they just wanted to take over our land and rule us for the rest of history and so on; surprisingly it wasn’t to bad for some people but others it was bad. I wondered a lot how much the Germans wanted our land and to rule us forever?
It feels like years since I last saw you and your Mother. I swear bullets have been flying over my head for at least five years now. I hope so much that the war will before Christmas so I could see your excited face as you rip the wrapping paper of the presents that you have been waiting for all year. I wish you knew who much I miss you. By the time you read this letter I will probably be in the same muddy trench that I now know better than the back of my hand. Unfortunately, the generals are saying the war won’t be over until after Christmas but keep your fingers crossed. This is one of the most scary times of my life. I really want this to be the last time I ever shoot a gun or take a life just to make our leaders happy. Keep yourself safe.
The Spitfire is the most famous plane from World War Two. It’s brilliant design helped the British beat the Germans. It had very good speed, turning and firepower. It gave us a big advantage and helped us to win the war. The Messerschmitt was a German aeorplane and could out dive the spitfire. Both spitfire and Messerschmitt can reach up to 350mph- some spitfires have boosters that increased their speed by 34 mph for 5 minutes. The spitfire is the British icon from World War II(WW2).
The original designer was RJ Mitchell, he died in 1937. The man who took over was Joe Smith and he developed the spitfire to make it more powerful and faster. The latest Spitfire Mark IX had a 1720 horsepower engine and was equipped with both 20mm cannons and .50 calibre machine-guns. The fighters provided crucial air support for the D-Day landings and many were adapted to be fighter-bombers to carry out attacks on German ground forces.
