Battle of Savo Island
—
Part III
—
Mikawa's force penetrated the impotent radar screen about 00:40, passing the visibly distant USS Blue in the process. Within Savo Sound, HMAS Australia had retired to Lunga Point, leaving Howard Bode aboard USS Chicago in charge of the Southern patrol. Royal Navy Rear Admiral Victor Crutchley, commander of the cruiser force, had been summoned to a meeting and took his flagship with him. In the North, commanders slept.
--
In the South, Chicago stayed behind Canberra as they plodded up the patrol route. USS Bagley and USS Patterson flanked the Australian cruiser. Chicago's search radar was off. Spottings of Japanese floatplanes earlier in the day had been essentially ignored. Just after 01:40, flares lit up the anchorage to the South, and USS Patterson reported ship silhouettes entering the harbor. She fired star shells, then turned and fired torpedoes to starboard.
--
Canberra went right, while the three American ships turned hard to the left. Mikawa's cruisers opened fire, largely on Canberra, at the head of the column and maneuvering alone; she was struck by 24 shells in under two minutes, with a total of more than thirty decimating the ship before Mikawa's gunners averted their focus. Canberra's captain, along with an eventual 83 others, were killed. Chicago was struck by a torpedo on her bow and lightly damaged by a shell above decks. Chicago continued Westward without radioing Crutchley, or warning the Northern Force; meanwhile, the burning Canberra drifted without power. The initial attack had lasted about six minutes. Canberra, a County-class heavy cruiser, is seen here pre-war.

GI's of the 4th Infantry Division valiantly charge a German position on the sea wall after surviving the initial rush onto Utah Beach, June 6th, 1944. Pfc. Ethan Krall is to the far right of the photograph wielding an M1 Garand. A handful of German soldiers were taken prisoner, the rest were all killed. It was critical that this position was taken out as its mortar was inflicting heavy casualties upon the incoming second and third waves of GI's. (Reenactment photo)

On November 6th, 2014, my school held an assembly remembering all veterans, and most especially Olympic runner and pow who survived WW2, Louis Zamperini. He was a guest who always attended my school's annual Veterans day assembly, and had I enrolled a year earlier, I would have had the chance to meet him. I regret not having paid enough attention that day to know that in my presence, i had 98 year old Colonel Gerald Rimpau, one of the few surviving pilots to fly in paratroopers in major European operations during WW2, Bryan Moss, a Korean War pilot, WW2 veteran Art Sherman and many others. It was at this event, that my interest in both World Wars truly sparked, even more after reading "Unbroken", the biography of Louis Zamperini.

"Tail Tuesday - Vagabond Viking" This weeks tail livery is from 2011 on this F/A-18D Hornet of the U.S. Marine Corps Fighter Attack Squadron VMFA(AW)-225 "Vikings" based at Marine Corps Air Station Miramar, California. What makes this livery interesting is the "Ace of Spades" insignia on the inside of the Starboard Vertical Stabilizer. It is their unofficial squadron insignia from World War II, and a salute to when they were known as VMF-225 "Vagabonds" and flying the iconic Vought F4U Corsair in the Pacific Theater in 1944-1945. #avgeek #avgeeks #pdxairport #flypdx #pdx #boeing #boeinglovers #marines #usmc #marinecorps #marineaviation #navalaviation #aviationphotography #instaaviation #f18 #fa18 #hornet #hornets #airplane #airplane_lovers #fighterjets #airport #portlandoregon #oregon #usa #america #wwii #worldwar2 #corsair

Mojave Trails National Monument is one of the national monuments short-listed in the @usinterior review. This pristine desert wilderness connects @joshuatreenps to #MojaveNationalPreserve to create an important wildlife corridor for migrating desert creatures. It also preserves our shared heritage in World War II training camps Iron Mountain and Granite and historic Route 66. Reducing or rescinding Mojave Trails would pave the way for the Cadiz Inc. water project, which would deplete an aquifer that provides essential water resources for our desert ecosystem.

The final decision on #MojaveTrails is due this Thursday, August 24. #Regram if you don't want to lose Mojave Trails, the wildlife it supports, or the history it preserves. #DesertDefenders #mdlt #mojave #mojavetrails #MojaveMonuments #desert #mojavedesert #cadiz #stopcadiz #beautiful #landscape #nationalmonument #rally #virtualrally #worldwar2 #wildlife #california #californiawildlife #explore

🍃 Hobby 🍃
As you can see my main hobby is drawing... and reenacting! 🎨👮
•
I'd like to share this photo and sketch from last year to illustrate both my hobbies together 😊
I really love drawing and painting and I do it since I was a child.
My passion for history~military history~historical costumes started when I was a little bit 'older', a young kid.
Another passion and hobby you cannot spot in the photo but it's present is taking photographs 📷

My collection of Yank, Life, Look, and Saturday evening post magazines. The oldest from December 8th, 1941, and the newest from July 15,1966. I left out a 1952 edition of handyman magazine because it did not fit. I would like to get more yank magazines. #wwii #1940s #1950s #1960s #vintage #kennedy #ads #lifemagazine #vietnam #korea #usa #america #merica🇺🇸 #merica #vintage #classic #worldwar2 #worldwarii

"Looking for an innovative dental hygiene enthusiast to thank next time you polish your pearly whites? Turns out it’s not that simple. People have been cleaning their teeth for millennia, starting with the ancient Egyptians, who are thought to have scrubbed their choppers with a special powder made from ox hooves and eggshells as far back as 5000 B.C. The Romans opted for sticks with frayed ends, while the Greeks used rough cloths. About 800 years ago, the Chinese began fashioning proto-toothbrushes by attaching coarse animal hairs to bamboo or ivory handles; during the Middle Ages, travelers brought these devices to Europe.

Fast-forward to the late 18th century, when an Englishman named William Addis landed in jail for inciting a riot. To while away the time—and freshen up in the process—he carved a bone handle, drilled holes into it and inserted boar bristles that were held in place by wire. Addis starting mass-producing his contraption after leaving prison and died a wealthy man. In 1938 the DuPont company developed the first toothbrush with nylon fibers, which proved sturdier and more efficient than animal hairs. But in the United States, at least, it wasn’t until soldiers returned home from World War II indoctrinated with military hygiene habits that brushing one’s teeth regularly became a widespread practice."

On this day, 76 years ago, the Siege of Leningrad had begun. During Operation Barbarossa and once the Nazi Germans had captured the Soviet city, the citizens were brutally oppressed, revoking food and basic human needs from all people. Th city had been taken back by the USSR in 1944, freeing the city again.

"Little Boy" was the codename for the atomic bomb dropped on the Japanese city of Hiroshima on 6 August 1945 during World War II by the Boeing B-29 Superfortress Enola Gay, piloted by Colonel Paul W. Tibbets, Jr., commander of the 509th Composite Group of the United States Army Air Forces. It was the first atomic bomb to be used in warfare. The Hiroshima bombing was the second artificial nuclear explosion in history, after the Trinity test, and the first uranium-based detonation. It exploded with an energy of approximately 15 kilotons of TNT (63 TJ). The bomb caused significant destruction to the city of Hiroshima and its occupants. "Fat Man" was the codename for the atomic bomb that was detonated over the Japanese city of Nagasaki by the United States on 9 August 1945. It was the second of the only two nuclear weapons ever used in warfare, the first being Little Boy, and its detonation marked the third-ever man-made nuclear explosion in history. It was built by scientists and engineers at Los Alamos Laboratory using plutonium from the Hanford Site and dropped from the Boeing B-29 Superfortress Bockscar. For the Fat Man mission, Bockscar was piloted by Major Charles W. Sweeney. Dropping these bombs effectively ended the war in the Pacific.

Defeater - Blood In My Veins
The Nazi party rally grounds covered about 11 square kilometres in the southeast of Nuremberg, Germany. Six Nazi party rallies were held there between 1933 and 1938.

Once Hitler had declared Nuremberg the "City of Nazi Party Rallies" in 1933, construction began on monumental buildings for the party's mass meetings in the southeastern part of the city. ------------------------------------------------

Once Hitler had declared Nuremberg the "City of Nazi Party Rallies" in 1933, construction began on monumental buildings for the party's mass meetings in the southeastern part of the city. ------------------------------------------------ #ww2  #worldwar2  #war  #history  #army  #travel  #travelgram  #travelingram   #travelstagram  #wanderlust  #photography  #instatravel  #travelphotography  #nowandthen  #battle  #soldiers  #follow  #picoftheday  #trip  #like  #instagood  #military  #explore  #unitedstates  #usa  #american  #nuremberg  #nürnberg

The IJN gunboat Hashidate in Osaka Bay, June 1940. The Hashidate was the lead ship in the Hashidate class of which there were two other ships. She was laid down in February 1939 and launched in December of the same year. She was initially used in support of operations off the coast of China during the Second Sino-Japanese War. Following the beginning of World War Two in the Pacific the Hashidate was used during Operation C, the invasion of Hong Kong. Following this she reminded based in Hong Kong for the rest of the war. On May 22, 1944, while towing a freighter, she was torpedoed and sunk by the USS Picuda in the South China Sea.  #imperialjapan #imperialjapanesenavy #warship #gunboat #navy #navalhistory #secondsinojapanesewar #worldwar2 #worldwartwo #conflict #blackandwhitephoto

History of Flags: Croatia🇭🇷 -
-
This simply colored yet satisfying flag is very intricate in terms of its symbolism. The checkered shape in the middle is Croatia's coat of arms. Then, if you look closer, you will see houses on top of it- emblematic of Zagreb, the capital. It is unknown what exactly the red white and blue stripes show- most likely they are just there for aesthetic reasons. A variant of the flag shows two intersecting anchors going through the coat of arms- The symbol of Croatia's navy: This is important to their country due to its extensive coastline.

A Bren gunner and his comrade watch for movement along the banks of the River Elbe, Hoopt, near Wisen, 20th of April, 1945. The Bren gun was one of the most revolutionary and effective light machine guns of all time. It was engineered with the idea of being a close support weapon kinda like the modern day SAW or Squad Automatic Weapon. It could be fired from the hip during an assault or deployed on the ground using it's bipod. It had a magazine located on the top (see photo) which was rare in machine guns of the time. It had a sight on the left of the gun and the Bren gunners were trained to use this special sight. Another advantage of the Bren was it's accuracy and simple design. You could quickly take apart and resemble the Bren within a minute or less during battle if you encountered an internal problem with the weapon. It wasn't common for the Bren gun to overheat when handled by a trained and experienced user but that doesn't mean it didn't happen. The Bren was fairly light and this was very rare during WW2. The Bren, unlike most machine guns at the time, could be operated by one person since it wasn't belt fed. This also gave it a leg up against German machine guns. The Bren gun was used by all the British Commonwealth during WW2 and even after the war by several other nations. It is still regarded as an amazing weapon and still has quite a reputation today.

"Three Portuguese soldiers looking through the sights of their rifles in a trench in the line near Festubert, France, 16 March 1918. Despite initially being neutral, growing hostilities between Portugal and Germany - in part due to threats against Portuguese colonial territories in Africa - resulted in the two countries declaring war on one another in March 1916. Portugal lost a little over 7,000 soldiers during the course of the war, with some 13,700 being wounded and a further 12,000 being recorded as missing."

Not sure why but I always loved this tank, even though it's combat ability was so poor. Was so happy to find me model of the Mark VIB Light Tank, though maybe not so enamoured with the price... Looks cool though, so no complaints.

In honor of everyday heroes. "Maybe England was the front, and the real heroes were the Londoners sitting in those tube stations night after night, waiting to be blown to smithereens. And Fordham, lying there in the hospital in traction. And everyone on this train, waiting patiently for it to begin moving again, not giving way to panic or the impulse to call Hitler and surrender just to get it over with. He was going to have to rethink the whole concept of heroism when he got back to Oxford." -- Connie Willis, All Clear #scifi #worldwar2 #amreading #reading #bookstagram #booknerd #bookworm #books 📚

The last battle of ‘Crécy-au-Mont’

On the 4th of June 1940 the battered French 2ème D.C.R. (Armoured Division), together with other French and British units, was ordered to attack in the direction of Abbeville, were the Germans had established a bridgehead south of the river Somme.

Like so many others, the attack was poorly coordinated, and soon the French Infantry –fired upon by the Germans and, it was said, by its own artillery and tanks- retreated, leaving the French tanks unprotected. Nevertheless the behemoths, Renault B1bis, kept moving forward, firing, and destroying a number of German Paks and infantry positions of the 57. Infanterie Division. 
Three French tanks, ‘Crécy-au-Mont’, ‘Kléber’, and ‘Maréchal Lefèvre’, broke through the German defenses and reached the Mont de Caubert, a hill just to the west of Abbeville, but without support they were forced to retreat, losing ‘Crécy-au-Mont’ in the process.

The final moments of ‘Crécy-au-Mont’ were later described by its driver, Sergent Robert Job, of which this is a short resume: “We moved downhill and the Lieutenant suddenly came down from the turret to point out a group of men we were unable to identify at first. (…) They were Germans! I saw a gun abandoned with shells piled beside and I drove for it, intending to destroy it. (…) we approached quickly but a direct hit stopped us a few meters from the gun (the 88mm Flak gun in the photo), the engine stalled and the tank started to burn. I cut off the ignition (…) and turned just in time to see another direct hit explode in the tank. Everything was burning and the air was suffocating. (…) I dragged myself to the door. (…) Before I realized what was happening, two Germans grabbed me and dragged me away. (…) (Caporal Marcel) Juteau was brought near me and shook my hand; sadly we thought of our two comrades who had remained in the tank.” (adapted from “Blitzkrieg in the West” by J. P. Pallud).

The final moments of ‘Crécy-au-Mont’ were later described by its driver, Sergent Robert Job, of which this is a short resume: “We moved downhill and the Lieutenant suddenly came down from the turret to point out a group of men we were unable to identify at first. (…) They were Germans! I saw a gun abandoned with shells piled beside and I drove for it, intending to destroy it. (…) we approached quickly but a direct hit stopped us a few meters from the gun (the 88mm Flak gun in the photo), the engine stalled and the tank started to burn. I cut off the ignition (…) and turned just in time to see another direct hit explode in the tank. Everything was burning and the air was suffocating. (…) I dragged myself to the door. (…) Before I realized what was happening, two Germans grabbed me and dragged me away. (…) (Caporal Marcel) Juteau was brought near me and shook my hand; sadly we thought of our two comrades who had remained in the tank.” (adapted from “Blitzkrieg in the West” by J. P. Pallud).
Boeing B-17F radar bombing through clouds: Bremen, Germany, 11/13/43. The B-17s or Boeing Flying Fortress, are members of the 384th Bombardment Group (“Triangle P”). Considering the date, on missions like this, the B-17s would normally be assisted by an aircraft with a nose-mounted version of the British H2S or H2X radar, capable of seeing through thick clouds to the ground and producing a reasonable image of the target city. The description of the photo states that the B-17s are using radar. 7 B-17Fs were modified to carry the H2S 9.1 cm wavelength (10 GHz) S-band radar in a teardrop-shaped dome under the nose. Later, 12 B-17s were modified to carry an American-built version of the H2X 3 cm wavelength (3 GHz) X-band radar under the nose. All the modified aircraft were assigned to the 812th Bombardment Squadron (squadron code “MI”) of the 482nd Bombardment Group. The 482nd was initially a “pathfinder” group, and loaned out their aircraft to other groups for missions like this. They entered service in September 1943. In early 1944, some B-17s began to be purposefully mounted in the factory with a H2X radar in a retractable radome in place of the ball turret, known as “Mickey”. The ball turret gunner was replaced with the radar operator, and sometimes an assistant operator was carried. Eventually, each Bombardment Squadron of every Bombardment Group received two. By early 1944, the 482nd Bombardment Group was becoming overworked, and due to the advent and proliferation of the “Mickey” B-17s, was largely converted to a training unit in March 1944 to train other groups on their new radar-equipped aircraft. The Bombing of Bremen in World War II by the British Royal Air Force and US Eighth Air Force targeted strategic targets in the state Free Hanseatic City of Bremen, which had heavy anti-aircraft artillery but only 35 fighter aircraft in the area. In addition to Wesermünde/Bremerhaven, targets were also in Fargeand Vegesack. Bremen also included concentration camps such as Bremen-Farge and Bremen-Vegesack. The city of Bremen was captured in April 1945. In the 1939-45 period the RAF dropped 12,831 long tons of bombs on Bremen.#worldwar2 #ww2 #wwii #planes #worldwarii
