26 JUL: The Kurdish-led Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) is making ground against so-called Islamic State (IS) in its Syrian stronghold of Raqqa, reports say. The SDF's offensive has led thousands of people to flee the city, including some families of IS militants. The BBC’s Shaimaa Khalil spoke to some IS wives who escaped about why they joined, and what life was like in ‘the caliphate’.

A Canadian soldier uses a "Hedgehog" as a seat as he cleans out sand from his Lee Enfield rifle after surviving the D-Day landings on Juno Beach, June 6th, 1944. The Canadians had their long awaited redemption moment after the disastrous raid at Dieppe in 1942. The Raid at Dieppe was the Allies way to help the Canadians get some combat experience while capturing valuable intelligence on Hitler's Atlantic Wall. They landed under withering fire and quickly the plan went to hell. The majority of the invasion force were killed on the beaches and the wounded were captured. Even though the raid was a momentous failure, it provided the Allies a valuable lessen. How the German defenses were built and how they worked and also how many casualties were to be expected. On Juno they met much less resistance compared to Dieppe and resistance was sporadic. The beach and the surrounding area was quickly captured but that was just the beginning. Ahead of them lied Caen, which would become one of the bloodiest, costliest, and prolonged battles in Western Europe during the war. I colorized this image myself and feedback would always be appreciated. Someone a while back asked for this to be colorized and whoever that was DM me again so I can send it to you!

German Soldier with MG-34.
Russia.
The MG 34 was the mainstay of German Army support weapons from the time of its first issue in 1935 until 1942, when it was supplanted by the next generation Maschinengewehr 42 or MG 42. Although the 34 was very reliable and dominant on the battlefield, its dissemination throughout the German forces was hampered due to its precision engineering, which resulted in high production costs and a relatively slower rate of production.For its successor, the MG 42, the Germans instead used mass production techniques similar to those that created the MP 40 submachine gun. However, the Germans nevertheless continued widespread production of MG 34s until the end of the war.

Брестская крепость. 22 июня 2017 года (реконструкция обороны Брестской крепости) ...Защитники крепости верили, что скоро должна прийти помощь. Но с каждым днём эта надежда таяла. И в конце концов пришло понимание того, что они остались одни и сражаться теперь придётся до конца... #беларусьисторическая #брестскаякрепость #brestfortress #fortress #стараякрепость #крепость #брест #беларусь #brestcity #brest #brest_by #belarus #belinsta #history #war #peace #история #нашаистория #надопомнить #война #мир #незабудем #реконструкция #22июня #солдат #soldiers
