This photograph shows U.S. Navy battleship USS Tennessee (BB-43) underway on 12 May 1943. Tennessee was damaged in the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor 7 December 1941 and was afterwards given a very extensive reconstruction. This gave her the enormous beam apparent in this photograph.

The Tennessee was massively modified during this modernization. Her superstructure was almost entirely replaced. The cage masts had already gone, but they were now followed by much of the remaining superstructure. The twin stacks were replaced with a single combined funnel. The main-battery director was mounted on a low tower foremast just in front of the funnel. Under water large anti-torpedo blisters were added, increasing her width by 16ft 6in. The main guns were unchanged but the older 5in guns were removed (the 3in guns had gone in the earlier repairs) and eight twin mounts carrying 5"/38 guns were added. These turrets were controlled by eight directors on the superstructure and were dual-purpose guns. The anti-aircraft defences also included ten quad 40mm mountings and forty-three single 20mm guns by the end of the war.

After the Japanese surrender the Tennessee was used to cover the landing of troops at Wakayama, part of the occupation of Japan (23 September). She then visited Singapore, before returning to the US. The Tennessee was allocated to the 'mothball fleet', a group of older but modernised ships that were to be preserved in case they were needed later. This process lasted from 1946 until 14 February 1947. The Tennessee remained in mothballs for twelve years before being sold for scrap in July 1959.

About 8 years ago I wrote to Karl M. Wickstrom. He was assigned to the 602nd Glider Field Artillery Battalion of the 1st Airborne Task Force, a short-lived Allied airborne unit that was active during the invasion of Southern France in August 1944. He sent me a few papers of his unit, a German officers breast eagle he had taken during the war and a photo of him standing beside a jeep. Karl M. Wickstrom passed away in February last year at the age of 99. #wwii #ww2 #worldwarii #worldwar2 #worldwartwo #secondworldwar #military #history #militaryhistory #worldwar #war #militaria #uniform #airborne #usarmy #army #historic #historical #historia #historygeek #historybuff #historynerd #historylover

A dead Imperial German sniper hangs dead in a tree presumably killed by a counter sniper during the Great War. Snipers in the first World War were used quite frequently but were ultimately ineffective in the long run. The nature of trench warfare relied on factions gaining usually small quantities of land over a long period of time, therefore the low number of casualties caused by single marksman offered little to the Grand scheme of the conflict. However, the paranoia of snipers was effective, since the possibly of being shot by one, even slightly exposed was a common fear. Although the ineffective nature of the sniper to the war effort, it still set the standard for what we use today. Even British sniper training still uses a curriculum devised during the Great War to this day. #sniper #thegreatwar #worldwarone #ww1 #worldwar #militaryhistory #german #imperialgermany #centralpowers #marksman

The infamous Hermann Goring, leader of the Luftwaffe and the Gestapo of World War II, during World War I. He first started off an infantry regiment but got wounded, so he then went to the German air force as an observer. He then went to fighter pilot and got over 22 victories, 1st & 2nd Iron Cross.

The first rule of life: you do not talk about life.
The second rule of life: appreciate the little things that make your city great.
