WWI was a war lost by both sides. The Aliance would lose many of its territories, countries disappeared, and the Treaty of Versailles would lead to a hideous humiliation. That’s where the Entente did also lose; the consequences of the Treaty of Versailles would directly lead them to WW2. They also failed, of course, in accomplishing the “War to end all wars”.

Sword-Beach called during the landing the coast between Ouistreham at the Ornemündung and Saint-Aubin-sur-Mer. The landing zone was approximately 8 kilometers long and was divided into 4 sections named Oboe, Peter, Queen and Roger. It was the easternmost of the Allied landing zones. At 07.25 clock began the British 3rd Infantry Division with the landing of the troops. The goal was to advance from here to the northern outskirts of Caen. Here, between 8:45 am and 9:20 am, the 1st Special Service Brigade under the command of Lord Lovat landed. This unit was supposed to land just outside Ouistreham, march inland and shock the British paratroopers who had landed at Orne and Canal Bridge during the night. The landing of the 1st South Lancashire Regiment in the Lion-sur-Mer area (section Peter) suffered particularly heavy losses. So went u.a. all tanks landing there lost. Alone in front of the neighboring La Bréche 107 soldiers were killed. The fight for Hermanville should last even until the next morning. There is also a military cemetery there today. Even at the second wave of landing at Sword-Beach many German positions still fiercely resisted. Although large parts of the German 716th Infantry Division were smashed in the run-up to the bombing, the resistance in many places was still much stronger than expected. In order to be able to avoid the beach obstacles exposed at low tide, the tank commanders had to roll over the corpses lying on the ground, but also wounded Canadian soldiers, with their vehicles. Again and again it came to counter-attacks by German troops, which inflicted further heavy losses on the advancing Canadian and British troops. The planned meeting with the airborne troops could then be realized at 13.30 clock. ⏩ #wwii #ww2 #worldwar2 #lestweforget #normandie #dday #ddaylandings #overlord #militaryhistory #combathistory #ww2daily #ww2dailyhistory #war #krieg #history #historylover #historytour #routesofhistory #historicplaces #secondworldwar #battlefield #battle #1944 #normandy #swordbeach
When the war started Hurricane squadrons were immediately dispatched to France and had some success against German recce aircraft and bombers on small raids over allied lines. However, when the Germans invaded France and the Low Countries in May 1940 the Hurricanes were heavily committed, gaining considerable success against the Luftwaffe. This book tells that story and the men who became aces. #uk #military #museum #war #ww1 #ww2 #book #bookworm #travel #explore #landscape #outdoors #airforce #british #library #reading #navy #guns #plane #memorial #warmemorial #army #history #soldier #militaryhistory #battle #avgeek #aviation
Sword-Beach bezeichnete während der Landung den Küstenabschnitt zwischen Ouistreham an der Ornemündung und Saint-Aubin-sur-Mer. Die Landezone war ca. 8 Kilometer lang und wurde in 4 Abschnitte mit den Namen Oboe, Peter, Queen und Roger unterteilt. Sie war die östlichste der alliierten Landezonen. Ab 07.25 Uhr begann die britische 3. Infanterie-Division mit der Anlandung der Truppen. Ziel war es von hier bis an das nördliche Randgebiet von Caen vorzustoßen. Hier ging zwischen 8.45 Uhr und 09.20 Uhr auch die 1st Special Service Brigade unter dem Kommando von Lord Lovat an Land. Diese Einheit sollte genau vor Ouistreham landen, landeinwärts marschieren und die britischen Fallschirmjägern entsetzen, die in der Nacht an Orne- und Kanalbrücke gelandet waren. Bei der Landung erlitt vor allem das 1st South Lancashire Regiment im Bereich Lion-sur-Mer (Abschnitt Peter) erhebliche Verluste. So gingen u.a. alle dort anlandenden Panzer verloren. Allein vor dem Nachbarort La Bréche kamen 107 Soldaten ums Leben. Der Kampf um Hermanville sollte sogar bis zum nächsten Vormittag dauern. Dort befindet sich heute auch ein Soldatenfriedhof. Selbst bei der zweiten Landungswelle an Sword-Beach leisteten viele deutsche Stellungen noch erbitterten Wiederstand. Große Teile der deutschen 716. Infanterie-Division wurden zwar im Vorfeld durch das Bombardement zerschlagen, trotzdem war die Gegenwehr vielerorts noch wesentlich stärker als erwartet. Um die bei Ebbe nun freiliegenden Strandhindernisse umfahren zu können, mussten die Panzerkommandanten mit ihren Fahrzeugen die am Boden liegenden Leichen, aber auch verwundete kanadische Soldaten, überrollen. Immer wieder kam es auch zu Gegenangriffen deutscher Truppen, die den vorstürmenden kanadischen und britischen Truppen, weitere schwere Verluste zufügten. Das geplante Zusammentreffen mit den Luftlandetruppen konnte dann um 13.30 Uhr realisiert werden. ⏩ #wwii #ww2 #worldwar2 #lestweforget #normandie #dday #ddaylandings #overlord #militaryhistory #combathistory #ww2daily #ww2dailyhistory #war #krieg #history #historylover #historytour #routesofhistory #historicplaces #secondworldwar #battlefield #battle #1944 #normandy #swordbeach

Spetsbomb från sent 1500-tal. Bomben laddades med krut och dränktes i beck. Vid sprängning av bomben var avsikten att sprängbitarna med brinnande beck skulle fastna i halmtak och trävirke. #ingenjulgranskula #spetsbomb #bomb #1500s #militaryhistory #militärhistoria #armemuseum #armymuseum #historyinpics #historyinphotos #militärhistoria #museum

Grave of Captain George Robinson, he was 28 when he enlisted on September 15th 1861 & was mustered into "Batty C" Co. Michigan Light Artillery as a 1st Sergeant two months later. Captain Robinson was in the following engagements, Corinth, Sandstone Ferry, Atlanta, and Kennesaw Mountain, before being put on special duty as Chief of Artillery for the Fourth Division, Sixteenth Corps; and on October 13th, he was placed on detached duty as the Assistant Artillery Inspector General for the Seventeenth Army Corps under the command of Brigadier General Thomas E. G. Ransom. He was discharged at the expiration of his term of service, December 18, 1864, primarily because his physical condition was deteriorating from the injury received in 1862. After his discharge, he came back to Detroit and his old job. He married in 1868 and had two sons; in 1873, the family relocated to Chicago. #civilwargraves #americancivilwar #michigan #chicago #artillery #tapophile #americanhistory #militaryhistory
Back in business - Part.1 __________________ 📷 Pictured in a Pearl Harbor dry dock on June 10, 1942, is the Colorado-class battleship USS West Virginia (BB-48), undergoing repairs of the extensive damage received during the Japanese raid of 6 months earlier. Moored outboard of USS Tennessee (BB-43) on that fateful December morning, West Virginia was hit by seven torpedoes; six of them detonating, tearing open two huge holes on the Portside and dislodging the rudder. Two armour piercing bombs also hit West Virginia topside, but both failed to detonate. Effective early damage control, and counter-flooding saved the West Virginia from capsizing, sparing her from USS Oklahoma’s fate; and she sank on an even keel, resting in the 40-odd foot depth of the ‘Battleship Row’ moorings; with water lapping over the main deck. 106 of her crew perished in the attack. . Of the eight active battleships that were attacked in Pearl Harbor on Dec.7, 1941, only two were total losses; the other six, including USS West Virginia, survived. Permanent repairs and modernisation overhauls saw them all return to service through 1942-43; helping prosecute a Pacific War that they had been so violently and unwittingly thrown in to. _ #Historybuff #Historygeek #Historynerd #Historical #MilitaryHistory #20thcentury #Military #History #Warfare #WorldWarII #WorldWar2 #WWII #WW2 #WW2History #SecondWorldWar #Vintagephotography #Vintagephoto #USN #PacificFleet #PearlHarbor #1942 #DryDock #PacificWar #USSWestVirginia #Battleship
Did a Mauser comparison. My Swedish muaser versus my Argentinian. The 25 yard groups were fun. The Swede turned in just over an inch while the argentine was just under 2 inches.
A piece of commemoration that I just not sure I love or hate. Bright side is that it isn’t taunting nationalisms and patriotic fervour. . . . . . . #travel #travelphotography #france #commemoration #worldwarone #ww1 #firstworldwarmemorial #militaryhistory #statue #art #rollofhonour if you are #Canadian you need to see this.

In 1805, what would become the Seventh Regiment of the New York Militia was formed. It had four companies, and was one of the first regiments of the state force that would eventually become the National Guard nearly a century later. In 1861 they were reorganized into the Union war effort against the South. What made the 7th unique was its members; most of them originated from the high society families of the Upper East Side. This earned them the nickname “Silk Stocking Regiment”. In 1917, they were mobilized to fight in the First World War as the 107th Infantry Regiment. In this capacity they would serve in both world wars. This is a monument dedicated to their service alongside Central Park’s edge on Fifth Avenue. One of many war memorials that dot the city.

Here is the recovered round from my buck taken with the new .224 Valkyrie from @federalpremium. It blew out both lungs and heart and came to rest on the far side after smashing through the ribs and just under the hide. I’ll have to wait until I get home to a scale but the Fusion 90gr bullet mushroomed perfectly and made a huge mess of the vitals from about 65 yards. The video will have more details. @mossyoak @coppercustom @weaponsdaily @gunwebsites @gunchannels_ @brownellsinc @gunfreaks @cameraman.mac From @militaryarms #military #militaryhistory #militarypress #militaryjet #militarymuscle #militarymom #militarylove #militaryporn #militarylife #militaryball #militarysupport #militaryparade #militaryarms #militarybase

Follow up to the WW2 map I’m creating: The area where I’m making this map didn’t have any good contour lines, so I used a Digital Elevation Model from Aster to create a set of Contour lines. I interpolated contour lines for every 20m, and have every 100m as an index contour that is thicker and labelled. Next, I used a recent LANDSAT7 infrared image to help determine what type of vegetation may exist. Vegetation that is healthy will be full of chlorophyll and will reflect highly in the infrared spectrum. By displaying infrared as red, the vegetation stands out boldly compared to other features and allows me to use a supervised classification algorithm to classify vegetation. I broke down the vegetation into three classifications to make it easy: Forest, Shrub/farmland, and no vegetation. Forest is green, shrub/farmland is tan, and no vegetation shows up as a light grey. Lastly, I grabbed some Open Street Maps vector from bbbike.org, and added it to the map. A 1km Military Grid Reference System Grid was overlaid on the map, and things are starting to come together! _________________________________________________ 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
During WW2 the 362nd Fighter Squadron was sent to RAF Leiston in the south of England. From this base, flying their P-51 Mustangs, they were fighter escort for B-17 bombers on missions across Europe. As part of the 357th Fighter Group, 8th Air Force, they also provided air support for Operation Market Garden and the Allied landings in Holland. Many of the pilots were aces and the group was nicknamed, ‘the Yoxford Boys’ after a local village close to their base. #362ndfightersquadron #raf #leiston #362nd #p51mustang #b17 #operationmarketgarden # #357thfightergroup #8thairforce #yoxfordboys #yoxford #militaryhistory #ww2 #aviationmissions #warineurope #avgeek #historygeek #fourleafclover #horseshoes #netherlands #arnhem #eindhoven #nijmegen
