Climbed inside this for what seemed like ages and still did not reach the top! Information panels claim this is the biggest monument in Europe. The Battle of Leipzig or Battle of the Nations was fought from 16 to 19 October 1813, at Leipzig, Saxony. The coalition armies of Russia, Prussia, Austria, and Sweden, led by Tsar Alexander I of Russia and Karl Philipp, Prince of Schwarzenberg, decisively defeated the French army of Napoleon I, Emperor of the French. . . . . #leipzig #battleofthenations #battleofthenationsmonument #archaeologytravel #germany #militaryhistory #napoleon #battleofleipzig #militarymonument #monument

⚜🔱⚜️ ♦️A German mechanical trench digger abandoned on the battlefield after a German withdrawal on the Western Front, 1918. These iron dredge-like machines have a caterpillar track just like the armoured German vehicles for movement, a strong engine to thrust it forward, and a rotating wheel along with a track of iron buckets with reinforced teeth in order to dig past mud, soil and small rocks. In order to dig the 6 feet required for a decent trench it was also equipped with a mechanism that would allow it to change the angle at which the frame and buckets would pass, causing it to dig at the desired level. Although, this wasn’t very common, especially on the frontlines as it could be destroyed and the driver was completely in the open. Most digging of the trenches were in large part made possible by the dented shovel of a sweaty and tired soldier. 💈 @Wartime_Pics 💈 ——/ ***Disclaimer: This post does not, in any way, encourage, glorify or promote violence, this is purely used for educational purposes and should not be interpreted any other way.

After the attacks on Pearl

The WW2 Experience Part 1: Training (USA) . After the attacks on Pearl Harbor in early December, 1941, thousands of young American men went to their local recruiting stations and signed up while others were drafted. One of these draftees was Babe Carlo of Waterbury, Connecticut. In early 1943, he began his training. The United States at the time of Pearl Harbor was unprepared for such an influx of trainees and for war itself. However, they made do with what they had. Training with dummy rifles, uniforms from the First World War, and took part in daily running/calisthenics. For many, it would be the first time away from their small towns dotted across the US. However, they new they had a job to do and continue enduring the daunting tasks and physical toll of their training. . The song you're listening to is "Let's Get Lost" by Frank Sinatra. Babe Carlo listened to this song during his training in 1943. Keep in mind while you listen that many American GIs, like Carlo, listened to this song. Many of those who listened would be killed in Europe or on a remote island in the Pacific. The Second World War doesn't get much more intimate and personal than that. Below is an excerpt from one of Babe’s letters during training. . May 9, 1943 Dear Vic: We are listening to the Lucky Strike program and Frank Sinatra is singing, "Let's Get Lost," and what a voice he's got. Tell Mom not to worry about me because I will be home soon enough. I am calling Mom to give her Mother's day greetings. I will have to wait five or six hours for the call to go through but it is worth it. From now until I get through with my basic training I will be pretty busy so if Mom doesn't hear from me for a few days you explain to her that I am alright, but just busy. Love, Babe #ww2 #history #experience #documentary #historical #militaryhistory #wwii #worldwar2 #training #military #historical #historybuff #interesting #documentary #learn #explore #ww1 #teach

50 years ago today on 20 July 1969, Apollo 11 touched down on the moon. All three on the mission were military pilots. Neil Armstrong was a Naval Aviator obtaining the rank of Lieutenant Junior Grade. Buzz Aldrin graduated from West Point and commissioned into the Air Force retired as a Colonel. Michael Collins also came from West Point and moved to the Air Force and retired as a Major General. Armstrong saw combat in Korea flying the F9F Panther and was forced to eject after hitting a cable while on a ground attack mission. Aldrin flew the F-86 Sabre for 66 combat missions in Korea and scored two aerial victories (both MiG-15’s). Collins also flew F-86’s in the Air Force and was part of their test pilot and experimentation school.

imperial_japanese_military. Imperial Japanese Navy sailors practice Jūkendō on the deck of a ship.

Imperial Japanese Navy sailors practice Jūkendō on the deck of a ship. Jūkendō translates as “the way of the bayonet” and is one of the many Japanese martial arts. Bayonet fight techniques had been in Japan since the 1600s but it wasn’t till the Meiji Era and the modernization of Japan that these techniques, as well as new techniques from French military advisors, were brought together to form what became known as Jūkendō. Jūkendō was taught to military personal and eventually found its way into schools. Like so many other Japanese martial arts, jūkendō was banned after World War II by the Occupation Government, but by the mid 1950s had returned. Today the art has a small follower base with most of the practitioners being in the JSDF where jūkendō is still used for training, though there are attempts to bring it back to schools. ~~ Jūkendō is a lot like kendo. The armor is near identical. The target areas include the head, heart, and left side of the opponent. During the years of Imperial Japan practitioners would either go against a n opponent of have a straw dummy to attack. #imperialjapan #imperialjapanesenavy #ija #imperialjapanesemilitary #jukendo #martialarts #japanesemartialarts #military #training #militarytraining #sailors #history #militaryhistory #japanesehistory #japanesemilitaryhistory #historiansunion #blackandwhitephoto

This superb glass negative portrait of a soldier part of the Royal Army Medical Corps RAMC of the Great War. I could not tell you the soldiers name or any detail about him as there is nothing unfortunately but we can pick out significant symbols like the circular embroidered badge on his arms with the cross meaning medic, there is also something on his shoulders but cannot make them out. He's classed to us as an unknown warrior. #ww1items #ww1_ww2_history__ #TheGreatWar #WW1 #theworldwar #thiepval #Somme #RAMC #royalarmymedicalcorps #unknownwarrior #history #photography #portrait #soldiers #glassnegative #militaryhistory #Militay #lestweforget #militarycollections #Militaria #stories #hero #battlefields #hero @militarycollec

Lee Miller's first ass

#Repost @leemillerarchives with @get_repost ・・・ Lee Miller's first assignment as a war correspondent, published 75 years ago this month, focused on an evacuation hospital near to Omaha Beach. As well as capturing the grim reality of the war post D-Day, Lee observed a group of young nurses off-duty . . . 'I ambled out, vaguely, and was shown that hot water came from galvanized iron cans into which the bowels of a 'bazooka heater' had been stuck ... that there is a juggling trick to holding the press button of a lister bag, a toothbrush and the paste all at once, that there are three positions for squatting, two of which are semi-perched on a helmet - the other you're using the helmet to wash in, so lean on your left heel' . . .

Tom Cruise portraying Colonel Stauffenberg in Valkryie, Prisma color pencils and watercolor on bristol board. On July 20th, 1944, Colonel Claus von Stauffenberg entered the Wolf's Lair in Prussia with a bomb in his briefcase and attempted to assassinate Hitler. "We took this challenge before our Lord and our conscience, and it must done, because this man, Hitler, he is the ultimate evil." The attempt failed and Stauffenberg was killed by a firing squad before 1:00 am the following morning. There is a memorial plaque embedded in the ground where Stauffenberg and three others stood for execution: "You did not bear the shame. You resisted. You bestowed the eternally vigilant symbol of change by sacrificing your impassioned live for freedom, justice, and honor." #tomcruise #valkyrie #germanhistory #hero #art #artoninstagram #arthistory #stauffenberg #militaryhistory #prismacolor #prismacolorpencils #prisma #coloredpencil #myart #movies #movieart

Bringing a bit of cool to this incredible Virginia heat! Throwback to a personal professional development trip with the British Special Forces in Norway. How much fun is skidooing in the Artic?; racing across frozen lakes and attempting some skidoo jumping too. I used this quote on a recent talk I gave for World Rugby in San Diego on Human Performance and Leadership. I'll post more of my talk and it will be discussed in a podcast I am starting soon. Really appreciate all the support so far on some new projects xx - - “There is nothing noble in being superior to your fellow man, true nobility is being superior to your former self.” Ernest Hemingway, - “A Farewell to Arms,” New York: Scribner, 1929 (1957), Book II, Ch14. - - #performance #humanpsychology #humanperformancecoach #humans #sports #highperformancecoach #highperformanceplanner #highperformance #sportscoach #militaryleadership #militaryhistory

Early morning shooting practice at 400 feet up. 📸 25 years ago this was one of 150 ICBMs 🚀☠️ in Missouri. This one is M-11 (“Mike eleven”) right on Highway 50. Arms reduction treaties took away the nuke however the eight-foot security fence remains though mostly grown over. Today the landowner uses it to store hay bails. 🚜 #STARTIItreaty #lessnukes #coldwar #minutemanII #ICBM #militaryhistory #airforcehistory #dronephotography #dronestagram #kansascity #missouri #hasselblad
