Seen above are unknown Soviet soldiers from the Marine Corps of the Northern Fleet on boats under the cover of the British Hurricane fighters of the 151st Airwings of the Royal Air Force Britain to embark on the coast line, Autumn 1942. The picture was taken by Yevgeny Khaldei.

From left to right: Captain Walker L Boone of Oklahoma; Flight Officer Manuel S. Martinez of Mount Kisco NY, and Flight Officer Jerry E. Brasher of Roswell, New Mexico, pilots of the 82nd Fighter Squadron, 78th Fighter Group, sit on the bonnet of a Dodge WC (weapons carrier) at Duxford air base in October 1943. Duxford's control tower can be seen in the background. "Fighter pilots flew escort missions to protect the bombers from enemy aircraft. Flying on 11 February 1944, they received word that a lone B-17 Flying Fortress had fallen behind its formation and was under attack. Jerry E Brasher was part of the flight that responded. He reported bringing down one of the German Me 109s seeking out the stranded bomber: 'Using water injection I gained on him, firing all the time, seeing strikes at the wing roots and behind the cockpit. The enemy aircraft lost speed and chandelled up to the left. I followed firing intermittently and saw him jettison his canopy. I fired another burst and he rolled over on his back at about 1,000 feet. I was about 800 yards behind at this time. I continued my turn and saw him floating down in a parachute and his ship hit and burn in a wooded section. I climbed back to 18,000 feet with my wingman and proceeded home."- From the IWW.
A few minutes after this picture was snapped they were in the air on their bomber-escort mis.sion into Germany. All three pilots would survive the war as decorated heroes. The conditions these brave pilots flew in are incredible. Nicknamed "Little Friends" by the bomber crews they would escort the bombers to their targets as far as possible until they had to turn around due to fuel or other issues. In 1943 the only fighter escort bombers had was the P-47 "Thunderbolt" which did not have adequate range to guide B-17s all the way to their target leaving them very vulnerable during and shortly after the bomb run. Nevertheless it proved still to be an effective dogfighter and bomber when it encountered enemy fighters and ground targets. The fighter escorts would form a tight triangular formation and keep their eyes peeled for fighters. Continued down below ⬇️!

An M33 prime mover is used to tow a 240mm howitzer near Mt. Porchia, Italy on 27 of January, 1944. The M33 was converted by removing the turret and recovery gear from the M31 ARV (armored recover vehicle). 109 of them were converted in 1943-44. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ For more information, follow us on Facebook for more!

French dragoon and Chasseur soldiers at the beginning of World War One, In Beginning of World War One the tactics of most Military Commanders on all sides were to use the infantry and cavalry for mass bayonet charges to overun enemy positions, this tactic has won many battles in the past but time has changed with the creation of new weapons of warfare most notably the Maxim Machine Gun and Vicksburg Gun. These mass charges became imminent death for common soldiers and officers alike and is one of the reasons why so many lives were lost during the Great War. The Military leadership still wanted to cling to the Napoelonic Era, soon they will have to change their tactics for the survival of their nations.

The trenches of the perimeter Garrison. The soldiers here are in charge of stopping any strange things that attempt to cross the wall. The Ancelsteirrian government doesn't believe in magic, so the trenches are built and regulated for modern combat.

DMTRI MALAMA SERIES X

During Christmas 1914, Tatiana wrote a note to her mother saying how sad and worried she was because her friends (Ellis and Malama) were spending Christmas away from their families, in the cold weather. Until 1916, Dmitri haven't gotten vacations since the start of the war. In March 1916, to be more precise, 16th, Dmitri came to visit Tatiana, Alexandra and the rest. Tatiana recorded in her diary:
"Malama came in. I was sitting till 10 o'clock. It was very nice. I was glad to see him." Now, the motives of such cold words, when in the past she had addressed him as "dushka" is the following. Vladimir Kiknadze was also enjoying vacations and was staying in St. Petersburg. After this visit, Dmitri didn't come back, probably because he heard the rumours involving Tatiana and Volodia. This was the last time they saw each other

A large group of soldiers, likely South African infantry, having a good time. They are stamping their feet and brandishing anything that comes to hand, from walking sticks to swords. It is all being done in a light-hearted fashion, with most of the men pulling funny faces and smiling. Many of the soldiers are wearing kilts and balmorals.

A German Fallschirmjäger runs for cover after taking fire from British positions just meters away during "Operation Mercury" or the Invasion of Crete, May, 1941. Crete was the Germany's next target after taking Athens in 1941. This was because it could be used as a vital vocal point for future landings on nearby enemy positions and it provided the RAF a perfect launching point against the railroads in Romania which carried 1/3 of German oil. Had Crete not been taken there would of been insufficient fuel for the thousands of armored units during "Operation Barbarossa." The Operation commenced on May 20th, and hundreds of elite Fallschirmjäger dropped from the sky. The Allies were ready and 400 of the 600 Fallschirmjäger were killed during or shortly after their descent. One of the German DZs were defended by New Zelanders which mowed down the majority of Fallschirmjäger as they dropped. All of the set objectives for that day were not achieved and reinforcements were desperately needed. The next day German forces tried to break through the Royal Navy's line to Crete with stolen Greek vessels but it did not fool the RN and over half were sunk. The Germans tried again a day later but yet again it failed. Luckily that day the Allies pulled out from an airfield on the far western end of the island due to a miscommunication and the Germans defeated the Greeks defending Heraklion. Though the Greeks put up a ferocious fight, they did not have the supplies to win. With this airfield captured desperately needed supplies and reinforcements could arrive. Gerbirgsjäger units landed with men and supplies shortly thereafter. With this new strength the Germans began a ferocious advance and the Allied units buckled under this pressure. It was realized they could not win and evacuations to get all Allied troops off the island began. The Battle lasted 13 days but cost both sides many casualties. The Germans won just in the nick of time for Barbarossa which would begin 21 days later. Casualties ran so high among the Fallschirmjäger that Hitler ordered them to never jump again but just to be an elite ground force. (Colorized by me)
