“I am an anti-Imperialist, I am opposed to having the Eagle put its talons over any other land.” In the battle of public opinion before and during the Spanish-American War, Mark Twain was one of the leading anti-war voices, denouncing warmonger Theodore Roosevelt as a mad man, and later the worst president in American History. Good Old Teddy proved his point by responding that he wished to skin Mr.Twain alive in retribution. Stephen Kinzer’s The True Flag: Theodore Roosevelt, Mark Twain and the Birth of the American Empire chronicles the era of political discourse that surrounded the intercontinental expansion of the United States, and how it set the stage for the conflicts that we have thrust ourselves into since then. An outstanding work, I couldn’t give it a stronger endorsement. #USHistory #SpanishAmericanWar #WorldWar1 #WorldWar2 #ColdWar #WarOnTerrorism #PaxAmericana #Isolationism #Globalization #Imperialism #FalseFlag #OfficeOfNavalIntelligence #1898 #TeddyRoosevelt #SamuelLanghorneClemens #MarkTwain #JaneAddams #AndrewCarnegie #SamuelGompers #GroverCleveland #HerbertHoover #RonPaulInstitute #PatBuchanan #NeoConWatch #Cuba #Philippines #SmedleyButler #notebook #ink #Yarnelson
December 11th, 1941 - - On this day, 77 years ago, Nazi Germany had declared war on the United States. Once the Japanese had attacked Pearl Harbor, their main ally saw it necessary to declare war on them, yet this would be a terrible mistake for Germany. Soon enough, the American war machine would awaken and attack with their full force. If Germany had not declared on the United States, there is a possibility that they could build up their military a little more to face them, yet they probably wouldn’t have enough to win the war. - - Follow today! @united.history ———————————————————————————————— #history #worldwar1 #worldwar2 #unitedhistory #usa #photooftheday #america #tbt #wars #states #love #europe #france #england #asia #china #japan #russia #australia #newzealand #africa #southafrica #netherlands #canada #germany #instagood #mexico #brazil #world #flags

The altar of the chapel in Colditz Castle (Schloss Colditz) is a famous German castle in Colditz, Saxony. The castle was used as a prisoner of war camp during World War II, housing Allied officers who had escaped from other camps around Europe. The castle was considered escape-proof but a number of successful escape attempts were carried out before the end of the war. . . . . #colditz #saxony #castle #ww2 #schloss #place #visit #colditzcastle #tourist #travel #instatravel #germany #deutschland #sachsen #germany 🇩🇪 #europe #wander #moments #history #worldwar2 #adventure #wanderlust #explore #journey #trip #travelbug #life #world #view #wanderpast

@Regran_ed from @memories_of_wars - Moroccan Goumiers were French colonial soldiers recruited from North Africa. They are especially distinguished during the Italian campaign in 1943 which is perhaps the most famous and most hard battle in the history of the Goumiers. In Italy, the Allies suffered a long stalemate at the Gustav Line. In May 1944, three Goumier groupes, under the name Corps de Montagne, were the vanguard of the French Expeditionary Corps attack through the Aurunci Mountains during Operation Diadem, the fourth Battle of Monte Cassino. In spite of the stiffening enemy resistance, Moroccan Goumiers penetrated the Gustave Line in less than two day’s fighting Goumiers more than proved their value as light, highly mobile mountain troops who could penetrate the most vertical terrain in fighting order and with a minimum of logistical requirements. Most military analysts consider the Goumiers' manoeuvre as the critical victory that finally opened the way to Rome. During their fighting in the Italian Campaign, the Goumiers suffered 3,000 casualties, of which 600 were killed in action I publish pictures every day so do not forget to subscribe so you do not miss anything and share my page with your entourage for more photos #ww2pictures #ww2 #worldwarII #worldwar2 #worldwartwo #worldwar #war #2 #two #morocco #photooftheday #photo #picoftheday #picture #instafollow #instalike #like #follow #following #followforfollow - #regrann

The Japanese Army during World War 2 is known for many reasons like the bushido code, it’s brutal treatment of enemies and it’s desire to conquer all of Asia. Today I would like to talk about the Japanese Military’s hierarchy system. Subservience to authority was a key element to barracks life in the Japanese Army. Service time was more important than mere rank to the Japanese soldier. If you were a new recruit just arriving, a recruit who arrived earlier than you had authority over you and you had to follow his example. Older soldiers taught the younger ones how to clean their rifles, make their bed and polish shoes even making them run errands. Japanese Soldiers were always reminded by the higher ranks that they were worth less than a penny which was the cost of a postcard. It sounds like they received training in every aspect. Tell me what you guys think?! #history #war #warhistory #military #militaryhistory #army #historychannel #historiansunion #worldwar2 #ww2
•The Perfect Storm• “With their mission completed, the Commandos regrouped to take a breather and tend their wounded. Under increasing enemy fire, Lieutenant Colonel Newman and the 150 weary men he had left took up a defensive position behind some trucks near the embarkation point, the port’s Old Mole. They waited patiently for the motor launches to return, but none arrived. As the minutes passed, it became all too clear that they were marooned in Saint-Nazaire and surrounded by thousands of Germans. The Commandos were not surprised; they had been warned that their chances of getting away were slim at best. Newman ordered his men to split into small groups and try to slip or fight their way to the countryside and then work their way south to neutral Spain or Portugal. But there was little hope of survival for the hapless Commandos; the port was teeming with search parties. The Britons hid in back streets, bombed buildings, gardens, and cellars to evade capture, and exchanged fire with the enemy, but the Germans captured most of them one by one after their ammunition ran out. Pandemonium had taken hold in Saint-Nazaire, meanwhile, and gunfire was echoing at daybreak. Believing that an Allied invasion had begun, French Resistance fighters had emerged and were picking off German soldiers. Convinced that he was facing a major “terrorist” uprising, the port commander called for more troops and declared a state of emergency” - *Cont. Below⬇️ US Navy Inst.

This image depicts a famous photo which Emmanuel Evzerihin took during the battle of Stalingrad (now called Volgograd) during August, 1942. Note the burning buildings that were caused by bombing by the German Luftwaffe. The fountain was restored after World War II and was removed in the 1950s. A replica has now been installed at the original site, in 23 August 2013, for the 71st anniversary of the Battle of Stalingrad. #ww2 #wwii #bomb #bombing #photo #colour #impact #warfare #photography #picture #picoftheday #worldwarii #worldwar2 #likeforfollow #1940s
Couple of WW2 anecdotes from legendary boxing commentator Reg Gutteridge (1924-2009). In the first clip he tells how, while the Germans were bombing a nearby dock, he and his opponent dutifully completed their bout before running for cover. In the second clip he tells of how his leg was blown off within moments of leaving his tank to charge German positions by foot. Between the day the Invasion of Normandy began and the day the Germans finally began to retreat, around 425,000 men were killed or wounded (including Reg). Although these casualty numbers were tragically large, they paled in comparison to the losses (around 24m) suffered by the Soviets on the Eastern Front who pushed the Germans from the edge of Moscow all the way back to Berlin before finally defeating them on the 9th May 1945 (День Победы aka "Victory Day") . #boxing #reggutteridge #ww2 #worldwar2 #boxinghistory #history #nazis #soviets #boxen #boxeo #бокс #britishboxing #tysonfury #anthonyjoshua #whytechisora #deontaywilder #ko #knockout #boxingmemes
