On June 23,1942, Oberleutant  Armin Faber of Jagdgeschwader 2, based in Morlaix, France, flew a combat mission with 7th Staffel. The unit flew the Focke-Wulf 190, which had only recently arrived in front line service and was proving to be a formidable opponent for the allies. On this particular day, Faber's unit had tangled with some Spitfires over the UK and Faber had emerged victorious, shooting down a British fighter during the melee. Unfortunately for him, Faber became disoriented and mistook the Bristol Channel for the English Channel, which caused him to fly north instead of south. Thinking South Wales was France, he turned towards the nearest airfield, which was a RAF airfield. Observers on the ground could not believe their eyes as Faber waggled his wings in a victory celebration, lowered the Focke-Wulf's undercarriage and landed. A British soldier climbed on the wing and pointed his gun at Faber. Faber was taken hostage and later made an unsuccessful attempt to kill himself. And that's how the Allies got their hands on their first Fw 190. #fw190 #germanaviation #fockewulf190 #fockewulf #luftwaffe  #aviationphotography #warbird #ww2 #butcherbird #worldwartwo #keepemflying #history #taildragger #r2800 #aviation #inlandempire #chino #aircraft #keepemflying #planesoffame #militaryhistory #radialengine #aviationphotography #flyinglegends #wherewarbirdsfly #axispowers

EN: light cruiser "Raimondo Montecuccoli" of the "Condottieri" series, type Montecuccoli. Two units of this kind were built (the other being the Muzio Attendolo) and proved to be among the best surface ships of the Regia Marina, combining good balance of armor, armament and speed. The Duca d'Aosta type cruisers, which followed, were an improved version of the Montecuccoli. ------------------------------------ IT: incrociatore leggero Raimondo Montecuccoli, della serie Condottieri, tipo Montecuccoli.

Working through malfunctions during the day to get good reps before the darkness hits at @slytactraining Low light solutions class. My time in the military I was never issued a handgun, so If anything happened to my rifle it was necessary for me to get it back up. Now every time I have a rifle I have my handgun on my hip and I need engrain in my brain that I have other options! - @milspec_mojo #militaryaviation #militarydogs #militarygirlfriend #militarywife #militarysurplus #militarymen #militarywifelife #vintagemilitary #militaryboots #militaryhistory

A Stirling silver world War two navy identity bracelet, stamped 'V. Hines STO KX91278' this belonged to Victor Hines who was chief stoker on the Royal Navy Submarine HMS Thunderbolt which sunk on the 14th of March 1943, The HMS Thunderbolt was originally built and named HMS Thetis (N25) a group 1 T-class submarine of the Royal Navy the HMS Thetis commenced Sea trials on the 4th of March 1939, the Thetis sank during trials on the 1st of June in Liverpool Docks with the loss of 99 lives, she was the salvaged, repaired and recommissioned as the HMS Thunderbolt serving in both the Atlantic and Mediterranean, The HMS Thunderbolt was sunk on the 14th of March 1943 off sicily by the Italian corvette 'Cicogna' which had detected her and attacked with depth charges, all hands were lost, this makes the HMS Thetis /HMS Thunderbolt one of the few military vessels that have been lost twice with full crew and one of the many tragedys of the second World War, there is a memorial to the Thetis in Liverpool in memory to the men who lost their lives, I had to repost this one as I found some photographs of the submarine and crew from which this identity bracelet came from so I thought I would share as I feel they bring a deeper realism to the artifact I found(I can only take credit for the photograph of the bracelet not the other photos) #hmsthunderbolt #hmsthetis #militaryhistory #navalhistory #lestweforget #weshouldneverforget #ww2 #worldwarrtwo #worldwar2 #navyhistory #cabinetofcuriosities #fiftyshades_of_history #thunderbolt #thetis #tragedy #liverpool #liverpoolhistory #royalnavy #submarine #submarinehistory #royalnavyhistory #navalhistory #ww2history #worldwarrtwohistory

laibarynp. Art of War: the Illustrated Edition (The Art of Wisdom) Hardcover by S

Art of War: the Illustrated Edition (The Art of Wisdom) Hardcover by Sun Tzu @ Rs.800 and free delivery. Description The masterpiece of the sage Sun Tzu is a military treatise written in China more than 2500 years ago. He recognized that we live in a world of conflict, which could not be ignored or denied but had to be mastered and understood. Sun Tzu's profound wisdom is not limited to military applications - his aphorisms offer important advice for dealing with other realms of human conflict, such as the pyschological tensions of everyday life and the difficulties of any joint endeavour, including business ventures. Arranged into 13 chapters from Estimates to the Employment of Secret Agents, and enhanced by beautiful calligraphy, The Art of War is more relevant now than ever... #laibarydeals #laibarynp #laibary #nepalreads #bookstagram #bookstagramnepal #bookworm #bookdragons #booknerd #readabook #readingisfun #onlinebookstore #bookoholic #nepalonlineshopping #theartofwar #suntzu #illustratededition #samuelgriffith #hardcover #theartofwisdom #militaryhistory #militaryscience #mindbodyandspirit

Wanna get away...??? Of course you COULD just take Southwest, but wouldn’t flying in one of these bad boys be a way more fun way to travel to #charleston?!?!...⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ...My boys love checking out all of the cool planes sitting out on the #ussyorktown @patriots_point. The first time we went I was pretty shocked that they’d let a couple of yahoos like mine get close enough to actually touch the amazing aircraft they have out on the deck, but every time we go back, I’m so impressed by the museum and its ability to connect us, and especially our kids, to the men and women that served and sacrificed so much for our country. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #siebrookbeachhouse #patriotspoint #charlestonharbor #explorecharleston #makingfamilymemories #adventureswithchildren #thingstodowithkids #travelingwithkids #travelfamily #travelingfamily #familyadventure #airbnbexperience #travelcharleston #charlestonlife #fighterpilot #fighterjets #fighteraircraft #museumlover #militaryhistory #militaryaviation ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Sent via @planoly #planoly

Thanks to Dave from Gifts For Glory Podcast for having “The Girl Who Wore Freedom” Director Christian Taylor on as a guest! Listen at the link in our bio. Here is the description: ⠀ ⠀ “Christian Johnson Taylor is a mom, wife, podcast host, podcast co-host, producer, director, voice over actor, actor, and anything else she can cram into 24 hours. We were blessed to grab an hour of her time just before she heads to Normandy, France, to debut the “rough” cut of The Girl Who Wore Freedom, the story of the freedom given to the French on the D-Day invasion, as told by the men and women of Normandy. Most stories we hear of that day are the American perspective, Christian was led to produce this film to tell the liberation story from the point-of-view of those being liberated.”⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ #101stairborne #documentaryfirstpodcast #easycompany #jackhamlin #usmilitary #ww2 #history #veterans #normandy #militaryhistory #dday #currahee #WWIIvet #documentary #WWII #screamingeagles #paratrooper #bandofbrothers #historicaldocumentary #battleofnormandy #warhistory #omahabeach #ww2history #greatestgeneration #unlimitednormandie #normandystories #TGWWF #worldwartwo #1944 #WWIIveteran
