Fuckin shout out to fucking Brazilian forces that liberated the town of Montese, Italy from Nazi forces on this day in 1945.
Not everybody learns that Brazil entered WWII in 1942 as an allied force, but they did and they kicked heavy ass in Italy during 1944-1945, including taking over 20,000 prisoners.
I mean their Expeditionary Force has a fucking snake smoking a pipe as their insignia, how absolutely badass is that?
You go Brazil. Four for you Brazil.
Fun fact about the Expeditionary Force insignia!
The symbol came from an old joke about how Brazil never entered any wars. It was said, “Brazil will only enter a war the day a snake smokes.”
Basically the insignia is like a flying pig. Except more BADASS CAUSE IT’S A SNAKE
