In the First World War this stretch of ground in front of the Stables at @althorpestate was used by army officers as a polo practice ground. Today, it’s grazing ground for the deer herds. #englishcountryside #worldwar1 #park

When designing this flag, I looked at supposed flags and made them real. A supposed flag I had seen around had been a stamp with a flag looking similar to the flag being showcased, only with four stars in the southern cross, not the five seen on both flags above. The flag would turn out pretty interesting, and I would keep the banner.

When designing this flag, I took the shield in the center and made it into a sort of heraldic banner. The shield in the center is a very cultural and patriotic symbol of eSwantini, so it would make sense to have you have the shield made into the banner, resulting in a pretty good flag.

One would expect this to be a large poster, however it’s only approximately 2x3 inches. Tho it lacks size this paper still packs a great image and a patriotic challenge. I’m not sure how this would have been used due to its small size, but the graphics are still impressively detailed. #wwi #ww1 #worldwar1 #greatwar #centenial #1918 #1917 #poster #art #doughboy #overthere #trenchwarfare #1903springfield #usarmy #vintageposter #ordnancedepartment #homefront #vintage #collector #collection #militaria #militariacollector

August 14th, 1914

On this day, 104 years ago, the Battle of Lorraine had begun. One of the first battles between the French and the Germans in World War One, the French second army was there to protect their nation against the 6th german army advancing through the French east. The battle would be weighed in Germany’s favor from m the start, as the French were equipped with navy blue shirts with red pants and caps, all lined up in Napoleon style rows, which was a gimme to the Germans because they were equipped with heavy machine guns in a more unpredictable style. Surprisingly, the battle had lasted until August 25th, with the Germans winning the battle, pushing the line back into France.

GRANDES GENERAIS DO PASSADO: HEINZ GUDERIAN

Heinz Wilhelm Guderian (1888 - 1954) foi um teórico militar e inovador general do Exército Alemão durante a Segunda Guerra Mundial. As forças panzer germânicas cresceram e lutaram de acordo com suas teorias, a mais conhecida delas publicada no livro "Achtung - Panzer"!. Ocupou os postos de "comandante dos Corpos Panzer", "Comandante do Exército Panzer", "Inspetor Geral das Tropas Blindadas" e "Chefe do Estado Maior do Exército". Ele foi promovido a "General das Tropas Panzer" em julho de 1940 e depois a "Coronel General".

Heinz Guderian entrou para o Exército no ano de 1907 como cadete. Serviu em diversas unidades de sinalização no inicio da Primeira Guerra Mundial, ocupando após vários postos no staff. Encerrou a guerra com a patentes de Hauptmann. No período de entreguerras teve papel importante na criação da arma motorizada, tendo revolucionado a doutrina do uso de blindados com o livro que ele publicou no ano de 1937, intitulado de Achtung Panzer!. Foi promovido para Oberst no dia 1 de outubro de 1933, sendo designado, no dia 1 de julho de 1934, comandante das unidades motorizadas, assumindo mais tarde o comando da 2ª Divisão Panzer quando esta foi criada no dia 15 de outubro de 1935. Foi promovido para Generalmajor no dia 1 de agosto de 1936, Generalleutnant no dia 10 de fevereiro de 1938 e General der Panzertruppe no dia 23 de novembro de 1938. Assumiu o comando do XVI Corpo de Exército no dia 1 de abril de 1938 e em seguia do XIX Corpo de Exército no dia 26 de agosto de 1939, estando no comando desta unidade quando foi promovido para Generaloberst no dia 19 de julho de 1940.

Foi reconvocado no dia 28 de fevereiro de 1943 como Inspetor das Tropas Blindadas, assumindo no dia 21 de julho o comando do Staff do OKH.

This here exemplifies Germany’s defeat in the First World War; man power shortages. It may come as a surprise to some that in early 1918 the Germans held a ~300,000 man advantage on the Western Front, before the Americans could arrive in force. This is due to 1) The transfer of 50 divisions to France from the Eastern Front after Russia left the war, 2) Germany having a considerably larger man power base than France or Britain, but not both combined, and 3) attrition working in Germany’s favor consistently since 1914. But with the U.S entry into the war in 1917, Germany would soon find herself overwhelmed by the allies if she did not score a quick victory within a year or so. That puts us right in April 1918, Operations Michel and Georgette were stunning tactical victories, but strategic failures, and the elite sturmtruppen fell in droves as a result. In total, tens of thousands of sturmtruppen, ceased to be by July 1918, along with hundreds of thousands of regulars, with nothing to show for it. This is where the Americans come in, and the man power advantage swings back towards the allies as Germany’s situation only gets worse, to the point where young boys and old men see action where they most certainly shouldn’t, Germany was essentially bled white. This is where the main U.S contribution to the war comes in. It was little about what the doughboys and Marines actually did in the trenches (although it was notable in and of itself) but the strategic and operational constraints levied on the German Army from April 1917 onwards. Had the U.S stayed neutral, Germany would not have been forced to show its hand like it did in March 1918, and with the manpower advantage they enjoyed, along with their stout defenses along the Hindenburg Line, a negotiated peace would take place between Germany, and the allies, likely favoring Germany. Keep in mind the situation in France and Britain wasn’t so peachy either, and if Germany could keep up their positive rates of attrition, I don’t see how Germany could have lost as bad as they did with American involvement. Of course defeat is still possible, just less likely.

On this day in 1945 thousands of Americans gather in Times Square in New York City to celebrate Harry Trumans announcement that the war has ended in the Pacific theater otherwise known as Victory Over Japan Day of VJ Day. This is also the same day that the famous VJ day kiss photo is captured.-Christian _____________________________________________
