My new video covers the critical 30 days of the Battle of the Bulge as seen and recorded by the Twelfth Army Group on the daily situation maps provided for General Omar Bradley. What is important to note, is that there are often gaps in information on the maps, and they may appear to not be historically accurate. That is due to the fog of war. What was known at the time by Twelfth Army Group HQ, versus what we now know may be quite different. For example, Bastogne was encircled for about a week, but the situation maps only showed Bastogne encircled for two days. The Battle of the Bulge was the last great offensive by the German Army to split the allies and seize the vital port of Antwerp. A massive German Army had been building up in the Ardennes region without the allies knowing. The Twelfth Army Group had been bogged down trying to attack through the Hurtgen Forest and attempting to attrite the Germans when the 6th Panzer Army smashed through the Ardennes. Over the next 30 days, the Allies fought to slow the German Army down. Pivotal battles were fought at places like Bastogne with the 101st, but just as important were the logistical battles of the flanking units who had to rush in new divisions to fill the line. It would have taken a lot of tactical flexibility for Patton’s Third Army to have pivoted from his frontlines, to go North and hit the Germans. The Battle of the Bulge was a daring offensive but ended as a tactical and strategic defeat for the Germans. They met none of their objectives and destroyed any meaningful reserves they had left. For the allies, it was an embarrassing failure of intelligence, and an unintended tactical victory. _________________________________________________ Authentic Maps of WW1/WW2: www.outdoormappingcompany.com Facebook.com/outdoormappingcompany #worldwar2 #worldwartwo #worldwar2history #worldwar2historyandinstagram #war #history #warhistory #axis #allied #warphotography #soldiers #generals #military #militaryhistory #follow #wwii #ww2 #combat #combathistory #axishistory #alliedhistory #history #Warmaps #battlemaps #maps #cartography #battleofthebulge #bastogne #101stairborne

Olympus Mons (Mars) compared to France. ➖ Olympus Mons is a very large shield volcano on the planet Mars. By one measure, it has a height of nearly 22 km (13.6 mi or 72,000 ft.) Olympus Mons stands about two and a half times as tall as Mount Everest's height above sea level. It is the tallest mountain of all planets and other rounded bodies in the Solar System, and is the second tallest mountain in the Solar System overall, after Rheasilvia on the Asteroid Vesta. It is the youngest of the large volcanoes on Mars, having formed during Mars's Hesperian Period. It is currently the largest volcano discovered in the Solar System and had been known to astronomers since the late 19th century as the albedo feature Nix Olympica (Latin for "Olympic Snow"). Its mountainous nature was suspected well before space probes confirmed its identity as a mountain. ➖ Like what I share?

Photo 1: Original situation map of Moscow, depicting defensive postitions. (1941) Photo 2 : Soviet soldiers advanced through the outskirts of Moscow. (1941) Photo 3 : Wehrmacht soldiers patrol forest outside Moscow. (1941) The Wehrmacht strategic offensive, named Operation Typhoon called for two pincer offensives, one to the north of Moscow against the Kalinin Front by the 3rd and 4th Panzer Armies, simultaneously severing the Moscow–Leningrad railway, and another to the south of Moscow Oblast against the Western Front south of Tula, by the 2nd Panzer Army, while the 4th Army advanced directly towards Moscow from the west. Initially, the Soviet forces conducted a strategic defence of the Moscow Oblast by constructing three defensive belts, deploying newly raised reserve armies, and bringing troops from the Siberian and Far Eastern Military Districts. As the German offensives were halted, a Soviet strategic counter-offensive and smaller-scale offensive operations forced the Wehrmacht armies back to the positions around the cities of Oryol, Vyazma and Vitebsk, and nearly surrounded three armies. It was a major setback for the Germans, the end of the idea of a fast Wehrmacht victory in the USSR. Field Marshal Walther von Brauchitsch was excused as commander of OKH, with Hitler appointing himself as Wehrmacht supreme military commander. #WW2 #WWII #worldwar2 #easternfront #warhistory #history #Москва #Polska #axis #allied #Wehrmacht #veteran #greatestgeneration #neverforget #maps #alliedhistory #axishisory #glorytofallenheroes #russia #Россия #aerialphoto #aerialphotography #militaria #cartography #heritage #greatpatrioticwar #tanks #pow #planes #army

Friday map flashback! I produced this map of Antarctica almost 7 years ago for a scientific publication. Since then I've been approached by various friends and coworkers of this client to do maps for them as well. Loved the challenge of working in greyscale #map #cartography #lovemaps

How long is Chile? • Chile is as narrow as it is because of the Andes Mountains, which separate it from Argentina. That's why the country is only 110 miles (177 km) across, on average. Chile measures 2,653 miles (4,270 km) from north to south. It is the world's most prominent example of the elongated type of territorial morphology. Other examples include Norway and Vietnam. There are four other types of territorial morphology: compact, prorupt, fragmented and perforated • Like what I share?

¿Cómo implicarse y re-activar formas de habitar compartidas en torno a nuestros ríos, ahí donde los sentidos, materialidades y porosidad de las superficies nos permiten percibir otras temporalidades en que la vida participa?¿cómo gestar alianzas para sentir que nuestro día a día es co-producido por las energías y fuerzas del mundo material de la naturaleza?. La imagen que hoy comparto corresponde a uno de los fragmentos de la bitácora de exploración de Franco Castignani, elaborada en contexto de su participación en los laboratorios de re-composición. "Cuando tu materia deviene desborde" es un proyecto de arte colaborativo activado por @francisconavarretesitja -junto al apoyo del investigador y escritor Franco Castignani-, iniciativa de creación y producción en residencia artística seleccionada en marco de la convocatoria #EsteticasTransversales #EcosistemasPerifericos de @idensitat y @centro_huarte.
