johnb92 New book that I got shipped from back home. A great way to appreciate your history. And gives thanks to them for being strong enough to carry on. Many of us wouldn't be able or able to understand if it weren't for them or their stories. #realfaces #realpeople #manamko #guahan #newbook #guamww2 #ww2survivors #history #guamoccupation #reallifehistory #forevermyhome #mypeople #myculture #mylife #neverforget #alwayshonor #worldwar2 #pickthisbookup #wefinallyhaveanswers #manenggon #chamorru #chamoru #chamorro #islandpride #chamorrobeauties #marianaislands #guam #chamorupride #hafadai 4h

thebradyqueen Quite honestly, you're not a legit Pink Floyd fan if you believe that "The Post-War Dream", isn't an enjoyable record. Sure it was mostly a Roger Waters led production, but it contains some of the most saddening and melancholy lyrics ever! And the saxophone solo in "The Gunners Dream" is pretty amazing as well! #pinkfloyd #rogerwaters #ericfletcherwaters #fletchermemorialhome #whenthetigersbrokefree #thepostwardream #postwardream #progrock #progressiverock #royalfusiliers #worldwar2 #wwII 5h

the_jenelement Because sometimes there's not enough time in the day to do both separately. I decided to go light on cardio & walk so that I could get a little leisure reading in.
Whenever people ask me what my favorite period of history is to study I ALWAYS hesitate because it's World War II but primarily the Nazi German Empire. It's a disservice to the people who suffered and the families that continued to, to not study and admire their faith in God & resistance to not trade sides.
A reader lives a thousand lives before he dies, the non-reader, only one. And I've found myself fortunate enough to walk through some great minds, brave people, and outstanding character.

war_mongo Combat Medic Memorial at Fort Sam Houston, Texas. The combat medic is our front line guide to battlefield survival. Within a century of warfare, battlefield casualty survival has increased from -50% in WW1 to over 90% for US forces in Iraq and Afghanistan. Figures are tough since types of wounds, accidents and illness are complex stats, but you get the idea. #military #militaryhistory #war #warfare #ww1 #ww2 #soldier #medic #medicine #battlefield_medicine #wounded #texas #fort_sam_houston #worldwar2 #second_world_war #secondworldwar 7h

blitzkrieg1945 "On this day during World War 2" October 21, 1944 Battle of Aachen The city of Aachen falls to American forces after three weeks of fighting, making it the first German city to fall to the Allies.

By September 1944, the Western Allieshad reached Germany's western border, which was protected by the extensive Siegfried Line. On 17 September, British, American, and Polish forces launched Operation Market Garden, an ambitious attempt to bypass the Siegfried Line by crossing the Lower Rhine River in the Netherlands. The failure of this operation, and an acute supply problem brought about by the long distances involved in the rapid drive through France, brought an end to the headlong Allied race toward Berlin. German casualties in France had been high - Field Marshal Walter Model estimated that his 74 divisions had the actual strength of just 25 but the Western Allies' logistical problems gave the Germans a respite, which they used to begin rebuilding their strength. In September, the Wehrmacht high command's reinforcement of the Siegfried Line brought total troop strength up to an estimated 230,000 soldiers, including 100,000 fresh personnel. At the start of the month, the Germans had had about 100 tanks in the West; by the end, they had roughly 500. As men and equipment continued to flow into the Siegfried Line they were able to establish an average defensive depth of 3.0 miles (4.8 km). Supreme Headquarters Allied Expeditionary Force (SHAEF), under the command of General Dwight D. Eisenhower, set their sights on the occupation of the Ruhr, Germany's industrial heartland. General George S. Patton's Third Army was given the task of occupying the French region of Lorraine, while General Courtney Hodges's First Army was ordered to break through the front near Aachen. Hodges had initially hoped to bypass the city itself, believing it to be held only by a small garrison, which would presumably surrender once isolated. #ww2 #wwii #worldwar2 #worldwarii #german #germany #america #american #usa #unitedstates #war #history #october21 #1944 #aachen #army #wehrmacht #tanks #allies #axis

the_great_wars The French Dewoitine D.520 fighter aircraft warming up for a flight. At the time of its entry into service, it was an equal match for the German Bf-109E's, but unfortunately was not produced in great numbers, so it could stop the overwhelming power of the Luftwaffe. 8h
