Mainline German Tank Identification Guide Part III G: Panzerkampfwagen III Ausf. M Nearly identical to the previous Ausf. L, the M would add special fording equipment (note the large equipment on the muffler), as well as move the smoke dispensers to the turret sides, and lowering the smoke dispenser count per unit to 3 from the previous 5. Finally the new fording equipment required a slight increase in width. #war #warfare #military #militaryhistory #historybuff #historynerd #20thcentury #20thcenturywarfare #worldwars #thesecondworldwar #worldwartwo #history #europeantheater #westernfront #easternfront #history #tanks #tank #panzer #panzeriii #panzeriiim #tankidentificationguide #germantanks #armor #armour

This is the grave of Sergeant John Sullivan. Born in Ireland he was 33 when he enlisted in New York City on February 13th 1864 & was mustered in as a private "E" Co 88th New York the same day. Sgt. Sullivan was wounded during his first engagement The Battle of the Wilderness on May 5th 1864. Sadly he would succumb to his wounds a few weeks later. Let us always remember his sacrifice for the Union of his adopted home....

Glimpses Of American History During WWI, the Gettysburg battlefield, specifically the third day bat

Glimpses Of American History

  • 22.09.2017 02:20
  • 1

During WWI, the Gettysburg battlefield, specifically the third day battlefield, became home to Camp Colt. Camp Colt was a tank training grounds commanded by one Dwight D. Eisenhower. It would eventually house and train over 11,000 men. The camp was so ill-equipped that Eisenhower ended up attaching machine guns to trucks which would then fire on targets in front of Big Round Top — Eventually Eisenhower was given Renault FT-17 tanks with which to train. The top picture was taken in 1918 and shows one of these tanks cresting what was once the bank portion of the Bliss Barn. On July 2 and 3, 1863, the barn changed hands several times as each side tried to establish their skirmish lines in this area. Finally on the morning of the 3rd, prior to Pickett’s Charge, the 14th Connecticut was ordered to burn the farm. The white monument is the 12th New Jersey Infantry and the closest monument is the 14th Connecticut Infantry Monument. As you can see in the top and third photo, the Army during WWI wasn’t too concerned with preserving the battlefield that was still owned by the War Department. — In the second photo the red circle is the Bliss Farm. As Confederates marched past during Longstreet’s assault they would’ve seen the barn and house smoldering. The green circle is the copse of trees that were the focal point of the assault. #gettysburg #pennsylvania #newjersey #connecticut #wwi #worldwar1 #worldwarone #confederate #union #military #civilwar #uscivilwar #americancivilwar #history #ushistory #americanhistory #civilwarhistory #militaryhistory #nationalpark #nationalparks #nationalparkservice #travel #travels #travelling #traveling #traveler #traveller #travelingram #travelgram #travelstagram

#Repost @rob_dunk23 (@get_repost) ・・・ Watching a documentary about the American Civil War and the Battle of Chickamauga, fought from September 18th to September 20th, 1863. Also, covered here is the commanders involved in the battle, including Union Maj. General George H. Thomas (1816-1870), an 1840 graduate of the U.S. Military Academy at West Point, who commanded the XIV Corps of the Union's Army of the Cumberland (commanded by Maj. General William S. Rosecrans) during the Battle of Chickamauga, and would earn the nickname "The Rock of Chickamauga" for his heroic defensive stand on Snodgrass Hill on September 20, 1863. In my opinion, I think George H. Thomas is one of the best Union generals of the American Civil War. #americancivilwar #1863 #September1863 #BattleOfChickamauga #GeorgeHenryThomas #unionarmy #WesternTheaterOfTheAmericanCivilWar #history #militaryhistory

A clip from the iconic opening scene of the 1998 film \"Saving Private Ryan\". The film's battle scenes (especially the depiction of the beach landing) were so realistic to WWII veterans that the U.S Department of Veteran Affairs set up a nationwide hotline for those traumatized. This realism is attributed to the 30 amputees recruited to realistically portray the wounded dismembered soldiers.

“My plane touched down at Tan Son Nhut Air Base outside of Saigon at midnight Halloween 1966. It was surreal. Jeeps with mounted artillery patrolled the airstrip. The hot, humid air assaulted me as I stood uncertainly atop the stair ramp in my Class B uniform… Little did I know that hot, humid Halloween so long ago that I was stepping into the pages of history.” --Peggy Ready, US Army Captain, Vietnam, “Women Vietnam Veterans: Our Untold Stories” Many know about the women military nurses in Vietnam, but there was another group who served, in the Women’s Army Corps, Navy, Marines and Air Force. Their stories have been largely overlooked, until fellow veterans began searching for their comrades, attempting to document each and every woman who served in-country from the arrival of Major Anne Marie Doering in 1962 to the last women who left on March 29, 1973. Over the next couple days, I’ll share some photos, background and quotes from my research on this story. Learn more in my long-form audio documentary, link in profile.

In the worst weather, the worst terrain, and facing the worst odds, Marines at Chosin Reservoir demonstrated the true strength of their fighting spirit by defeating 10 Chinese infantry divisions. They went on to be known as “The Chosin Few” and we honor them in our latest film, “Anthem” (link in bio).

This is one of those drawings that hits home the most. One of those pieces that says a lot to those who have done it. Those who have been in it. Patrols can consist of any type of unit, from heavy tanks to light aircraft to legging it. My unit used Humvee’s to patrol Route Pluto in east Baghdad. Patrolling in any context can be a dangerous affair. You are exposed, you are out there and can only hope nothing bad happens. Be a hard target, trust your instincts and hope they’re out of munitions today. Aaronprovost.com

Vienna, April 1945, four people kill themselves in a public park as the Red Army draw closer and the demise of the Third Reich is imminent. Such sights were common across Axis territories and Germany during April 1945 - in the German city of Demmin, for example, over 1000 people killed themselves in a 72 hour period due to the fear of retribution for their role in the war at the hands of the Russians. The reason for this fear could be due to Nazi propaganda or indeed the actions of Red Army soldiers and the despair/destruction they left in their wake. . . . #wwii #ww2 #wordwar #worldwar2 #worldwarii #worldwartwo #war #conflict #vienna #austria #nazi #history #historic #historical #historynerd #military #militaryhistory #1945 #blackandwhite #interesting #documentary #documentaryphotography #fact #factual #1940s

Why are the Gurkha elderly couples normally seen walking around and why the Gurkha gentlemen walk ahead to their ladies? According to Sepway FiftyPlus (issue: Autumn 2017), the answer could be: "Walk is their pastime as well as for good health, so you can see most of them walking in and around. Why the Gurkha gentlemen walk ahead to their ladies? (a) Gurkha ladies walk slower than their man (b) In Nepalese culture, husband and wives/partners are embarrassed to walk hand in hand (but this is changing with the new generation) " Photo: Buzzbourmouth #gurkha #ourgurkha #militaryhistory

On this day in history, September 21st 1897, the editorial "Yes, Virginia, There is a Santa Claus", written by veteran newsman Francis Church, appears in the New York Sun. Church's response to eight year old Virginia O'Hanlon's letter to the editor has since become history's most reprinted editorial and a hallmark of American Christmas culture. The editorial is not only famous for its cultural impact, but also for the author's use of Virginia's letter to comment on the philosophical and academic intellectual trends of his day. Virginia wrote, "Dear Editor: I am 8 years old. Some of my little friends say there is no Santa Claus. Papa says, ‘If you see it in the Sun it’s so.’ Please tell me the truth; is there a Santa Claus?" Here is the first paragraph of Church's response: "Virginia, your little friends are wrong. They have been affected by the skepticism of a skeptical age. They do not believe except they see. They think that nothing can be which is not comprehensible by their little minds. All minds, Virginia, whether they be men’s or children’s, are little. In this great universe of ours, man is a mere insect, an ant, in his intellect, as compared with the boundless world about him, as measured by the intelligence capable of grasping the whole of truth and knowledge."

Alexander Kolchak. 16 November 1874-7 February 1920. Russian polar explorer, navy commander and statesman. Kolchak was born in a lesser noble family and chose a carreer in the navy. In 1902 he also got polar exploration, something very popular at the time. However his time exploring the North Pole was cut short by the 1905 war with Japan in which he served. After the war he climbed the ranks in the Russian navy. When ww1 erupted he eventually became admiral of the Black Sea fleet in 1916. Then in 1917 the Russian revolutions came about. Kolchak heavily opposed the October revolution and decided to fight against communism. Thanks to his high rank in the navy he proved important in the White (anti-communist) army. In 1918 he became the leader of the White forces in Siberia. His government was settled in Omsk and fought against the communists. At some points it seemed like Kolchak was able to push the Red Army back to Moscow. But eventually he got driven back. In the end he was captured and executed by communist forces. His body was thrown into the icy river. By 1923 the White forces had been defeated and the USSR was a fact. In the 70 years that followed some tens of millions Russians were killed by their own communist government. #kolchak #russia #russianhero #whitearmy #russiancivilwar #ww1 #reactionary #politics #rightwing #conservative #white #russianhistory #rusiya #omsk #admiral #history #militaryhistory #russianrevolution #northpole

U.S. Army Huey Helicopter spraying Agent Orange during the Vietnam War. Agent Orange is a herbicide and defoliant chemical. It is widely known for its use by the U.S. Military as part of its herbicidal warfare program, Operation Ranch Hand, during the Vietnam War from 1961 to 1971. It was a mixture of equal parts of two herbicides, 2,4,5-T and 2,4-D. In addition to its damaging environmental effects, the chemical has caused major health problems for many individuals who were exposed. Up to 4 million people in Vietnam were exposed to the defoliant, with around 1 million now suffering serious health issues. The chemical is capable of damaging genes, resulting in deformities among the offspring of exposed victims. The U.S. government has documented higher cases of leukemia and Hodgkin's lymphoma, as well as other various kinds of cancer in exposed veterans. Agent Orange also caused enormous environmental damage in Vietnam. Over 3,100,000 hectares (31,000 km2 or 11,969 mi2) of forest were defoliated. Defoliants eroded tree cover and seedling forest stock, making reforestation difficult in numerous areas. Animal species diversity sharply reduced, in stark contrast with unsprayed areas. Agent Orange was to a lesser extent also used outside Vietnam. Land in neighbouring Laos and Cambodia was also sprayed with Agent Orange during the Vietnam War as forests on the border with Vietnam were used by the Vietcong for cover and reconnaissance. #Vietnam #USA #AgentOrange #VietnamWar #usarmy #usmc #marines #vietcong #history #military #militaryhistory #operarionranchhand #chemicalwarfare #herbicidalwarfare #veterans #whopaystheprice #wartimestories #gear #guns #soldier #Huey #war #photography #warphotography

#Repost @greeks.history ・・・ The Battle of Notium (or Ephesus) in 406 BC, was a Spartan naval victory in the Peloponnesian War. Prior to the battle, the Athenian commander, Alcibiades, left his helmsman, Antiochus, in command of the Athenian fleet, which was blockading the Spartan fleet in Ephesus. In violation of his orders, Antiochus attempted to draw the Spartans into battle by tempting them with a small decoy force. His strategy backfired, and the Spartans under Lysander scored a small but symbolically significant victory over the Athenian fleet. This victory resulted in the downfall of Alcibiades, and established Lysander as a commander who could defeat the Athenians at sea. #denix #denixreplicas #denixweapons #denixarms #collectinghistory #replicas #weapons #history #historygeek #collection #war #battle #warhistory #militaryhistory #greekhistory #ancienthistory #ancientgreek

As mentioned in the previous post, Fort Moulainville suffered severely during the Battle, with its garrison forced to evacuate during the day into the nearby trenches. However, Moulainville was also the birthplace of the underground galleries dug beneath the Verdun forts that would give rise to the Maginot Line. The commander of the fort, Capitaine Harispe, and his staff Commandants Dosse and Delage, sought a solution to allow soldiers to remain in the fort under adequate protection. Dosse and Delage came up with the idea of digging into the limestone below the fort to provide shelter safe from the shelling. This was so successful that the Army command directed tunnels to be excavated below the other Forts, with these being referred to as the Travaux 17. In total, 34km of tunnels were dug below the other Forts by November 1918. These tunnels, originating at Moulainville, were replicated at the Maginot Line on a massive scale, as the vital organs of the Ouvrages were placed up to 30mcbelow the ground to make them invulnerable to artillery fire. Meanwhile, Moulainville continued to be under fire from German artillery. The last major shelling was on the 20th of September 1916, when a 42cm shell damaged the 75mm's armoured observatory and another burst inside a casemates, but it would still receive 150-175 shells a week until March 1917, then down to 40 a month from April 1917. In the aftermath of the Battle, Moulainville's tunnels were extended to 590m in length so as to join up with the 'Abri de Combat' MD1. Also, with the lessons of close quarters fighting learnt from Fort Vaux, the entrances and exits were fitted with barricades for the usage of grenades and machine guns in close defence. Until the 1930s the Fort would continue to be repaired as a back up position for the Maginot Line, and after the war it was used as an ammunition depot until abandoned. Today the Fort is completed closed off with barbed wire in order to protect the rare bats that now call it home, hence I was not able to take any interior photos. (Taken April 2014)
