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!)

Cleaning up damage debris onboard the Town-class light cruiser HMS Chester, c. June 1916. Originally ordered for the Greek Navy in 1914 as Lambros Katsonis, Chester was sold to the Royal Navy in 1915. She fought at Jutland with the 3rd Battle Crusier Squadron and took a heavy beating from German warships, taking 17 hits from 150mm shells, resulting in the loss of 78 of her crew (29 killed, 49 wounded). Victoria Cross recipient John Cornwell, who was just 16 at the time, was among the dead.

Bolshevik and pro-Bolshevik protestors are shown fleeing in chaos after police with machine guns opened fire on the demonstrators. Nevsky Prospekt, Petrograd, Russia. July 17th 1917. It was late in World War I for the Russian Empire, and discontent had grown against the Tzar and the Russian monarchy, and after the Tzar abdicated a Russian Provisional Government was formed and the Russian Empire morphed into the Russian Republic. Popular discontent grew more and more in Russia, and spontaneous demonstrations broke out in Petrograd on the 16th of July. Although at first being against the protests, the Bolsheviks decided to lead the demonstrations and organize them, and by the afternoon of July 17th there was 500,000 sailors, workers and soldiers demonstrating in Petrograd. Military authorities sent troops to the site of the demonstration and the troops opened fire, killing at least 700 of the protestors. The Russian government acted fast and began mass arrests of Bolsheviks, and Vladimir Lenin fled to Finland and went into hiding. After this event, the Bolsheviks convinced themselves that peaceful methods were impossible, and thereafter began military and revolutionary activities against the government of the Russian Republic. A failed coup was carried out by General Lavr Kornilov in August of 1917, and then the October Revolution would occur on October 22nd 1917, ending the existance of the Russian Republic and marking the start of the Russian Civil War and the beginnings of the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics.

WWI French Croix De Guerre. This medal has three bronze stars which is somewhat uncommon. This particular medal is also the 1914-1917 version. There are many different versions of the Croix de Guerre from WWI because the government didn't know when the war would end. There are medals dated 1914-1915, 1914-1916, 1914-1917, and finally 1914-1918. The earlier versions are more rare and sought after. The Croix de Guerre was also awarded to many U.S. troops for combat action alongside French troops. The U.S. Marines that participated in Belleau Wood were awarded the medal. The 369th Infantry Regiment, an all black regiment, known as the "Harlem Hellfighters" were also awarded the Croix de Guerre for action during the Argonne Offensive. #military #militaria #french #france #croixdeguerre #medal #medals #combat #collecting #war #army #usmc #usmarines #marines #semperfi #harlem #harlemhellfighters #history #historical #wwi #WWI #Argonne #belleauwood #devildogs #usarmy #worldwarone #worldwar1 #germany #german #argonneforrest

#otd in 1917 General John "Black Jack" Pershing arrived in France with the American Expeditionary Force. This recent book from Kansas looks at his soldiers. It explores subjects ranging from the soldiers' motivations for serving, attitudes about the military and foreign cultures with which they interacted, their lives in training and battle, their sex lives and health, to the physical realities of their food, clothing, and shelter. #bookstagram #wwi #generalpershing #americansoldiers #americanexpeditionaryforce #doughboys #modernwarstudiesseries
