    Default A cobra vai fumar! (the snake will smoke). Brazil in ww2!

    The brazilians soldiers fought in a plenty of battles in Italy since sep./1944 until may/1945, like Monte Castelo, Fornovo, Monte Prano... The photo is the FEB simbol. Ths video shows the Brazilian Expeditionary Force (FEB) song. I always almost cry when listen this song. The chorus says:
    "Por mais terras que eu percorra,
    Não permita Deus que eu morra
    Sem que volte para lá;
    Sem que leve por divisa
    Esse "V" que simboliza
    A vitória que virá:

    Nossa vitória final,
    Que é a mira do meu fuzil,
    A ração do meu bornal,
    A água do meu cantil,
    As asas do meu ideal,
    A glória do meu Brasil."

    Translation for english:

    "For more land I roam,
    God forbid I die
    Without returning there;
    Without take along with me
    This "V" symbolizing
    The victory that will come

    Our final victory
    What is the aim of my rifle,
    The ration of my knapsack,
    The water from my canteen,
    The wings of my dream,
    The glory of my Brazil."

    It is a good song friend.
    Latino's are known for deep emotion and heart felt expression in their songs.

    A stirring song, a nice tribute to the brave 25000 strong Brazilian Army, Navy and Airforce personnel in Italy

    That's right Stickgrenade! I am really surprised with your knowledge about the brazilian armed forces in the war!!! The world practically forgot the participation of my great country in ww2 (as well in ww1). Do you believe that the History Channel made a programe about the Battle for Monte Castelo and didn't mencion the decisive brazilian participation?! It's a lack of respect with the Brazilians veterans and with all Brazilians!
    Thank you for the reply too!
