American soldiers look into the jungle wondering what awaits them after landing on a beach in New Guinea, 20th of April, 1944. The fighting on New Guinea was fierce, close, and costly. The region was very muddy, craggy, and elevated with lots of tropical vegetation. This was a perfect defensive position for the Japanese who knew the jungles well allowing them to know where to hide. Although the Americans were now also seasoned veterans of jungle warfare having fought at Guadalcanal, Bougainville, Saipan and Guam, and others remote jungle islands that dotted the vastness of the Pacific. These jungles also carried another killer that was not the enemy, disease and infection. The jungle hosted many mosquitos that carried Malaria "The Jungle Killer", West Nile Virus, and Yellow Fever. All could turn deadly very quick, when the US first started fighting in the jungles it sometimes did. There was also dysentery and cholorea which usually only affected the Japanese who did not have a supply of fresh water but drank from creeks, rivers, and streams but some Allied soldiers did contract it. The vegetation could also turn deadly like with razor grass that was so sharp it could easily slice right through your skin. Many just thinking their cut was nothing more than a scratch or not too deep soon realized that they were mistaken. Infection could and would quickly set in being sped up my the jungles harsh and brutal climate. This caused many soldiers having to be taken off the frontlines and treated, some even died as a result of their infections. All of this is just a glimpse into the brutal and deadly style of jungle fighting. Only the veterans know the true extent of its hell. (Colorized by myself and feedback would be appreciated!)

The Mighty Tiger....? ----------------------------------------------------------In the picture above, we can see what an internal explosion in a tank of any kind can do, as for this Tiger I heavy tank, it ejected the turret off. This tank belonged to the 501st Heavy Panzer Battalion in Tunisia, Date unknown.

One of the highlights of any visit to Genoa is the many palaces and grand homes of the Via Garibaldi that have been converted to museums. They mostly house art and artifacts from the 16th to 18th centuries. If you're a history buff it's like taking a trip back through time to Genoa's golden age when it was a world power that financed everything from early manufacturing to exploration/exploitation of the new world while being a center of art and fashion.

完顏阿骨打-----金朝開國皇帝 對外態度

阿骨打痛恨遼國,但對宋相當和善,在建國之初就有意與宋聯合,和後來諸代金朝帝王對宋朝充滿敵對大不相同。 《靖康稗史箋證*》中記錄其二子完顏宗望曾說過:“太祖止我伐宋,言猶在耳。當宋以“海上之盟*”求燕京(今北京西南)及西京(今山西大同)地,金國大臣左企弓*曾勸阿骨打不要歸還“燕雲十六州”,但阿骨打還是如約歸還了“燕雲十六州*”中的燕京、涿州、易州、檀州、順州、景州、薊州。其中景州雖在長城之內,但並不屬於石敬瑭*割給遼的燕雲十六州之一。易州是遼統和七年(989年)奪自宋,也不算作十六州之一。莫、瀛兩州早已收復,為北宋河間府所治。這樣一來,山西、河北太行山*以內的燕、涿、檀、順、薊、莫、瀛七州都已經歸還宋,而太行山以外的儒、媯、武、新、蔚、應、寰、朔、雲九州當時遼金尚在爭奪,金太祖*也無法歸還。

和阿骨打生前相處時間較長的幾個年長兒子,如長子完顏宗幹、二子完顏宗望、四子完顏宗弼都很崇尚漢文化,這對以後金國的漢化影響很大。

註釋*:
1)靖康稗史箋證:由宋人確庵、耐庵編纂,對「靖康之難」所記很詳細,書中所記因為非常恥辱,正史多無法記載,故參考價值頗高。
2)海上之盟:乃北宋末年北宋朝廷及金國為了聯合力量夾攻遼國而簽訂的軍事合作盟约 。
3)左企弓:(?-1123年),遼朝、金朝之際大臣。字君材,^薊州(今天津市薊縣)人。
4)燕雲十六州:又稱燕薊十六州或燕雲之地,古中國地理名詞,即今北京、天津全境,以及山西、河北北部。
5)石敬瑭:五代時期後晉的開國皇帝。廟號高祖,諡號聖文章武明德孝皇帝。他曾向遼太宗耶律德光自稱兒皇帝。
6)太行山:又名五行山、王母山、女媧山,或作太形山。中國東部地區的重要山脈和地理分界線。跨越北京市、河北省、山西省、河南省四省市。北起北京西山,南達豫北黃河北崖,西接山西高原,東臨華北平原,綿延400餘公里。
7)金太祖:即完顏阿骨打

想一想:儘管金國勢力強大,為何完顏阿骨打為何要聯合宋朝攻遼?
