alpharanger1849. The SCR-536 was the first hand held radio transceiver used by the Unit

The SCR-536 was the first hand held radio transceiver used by the United States Army Signal Corps in World War II. It is popularly known as a walkie talkie, although it was originally designated as a handie talkie. The History: it was developed in 1940 by a team led by Don Mitchell, Chief Engineer for Galvin Manufacturing. It was carried among the first waves to hit Omaha Beach on June 6 1944. Every rifle company of the United States 29th Infantry Division had six of them, one for each of the rifle platoons, two for the weapons platoon and another for the company CO. Even the Germans were impressed by the SCR-536 and SCR-300 radios after capturing several units in Sicily. #scr536 #handietalkie #galvinmanufacturing #usarmy #signalcorps #worldwarii #donmitchell #omahabeach #riflecompany #29thinfantry #militarycommunications #militaryhistory #historychannel #followme #alpharanger1849 #historyismypassion #historysamples #historyjournal #historymajor #historybranches #studentofallhistories #historyheadquarters #historychambers #historysquad #historybooks #walkinghistorybook

fuehrer_of_photography. Ju-87 Stuka dive bombers attack Soviet positions just south of Leningr

Ju-87 Stuka dive bombers attack Soviet positions just south of Leningrad. ___ The siege of Leningrad lasted from September 8th, 1941 to January 27th, 1944. Leningrad had become a primary objective for the Germans during the phases of Operation Barbarossa. The plan for German and Finnish forces was to surround the city in an encirclement, maintain a blockade perimeter to cut off all communication within the city and prevent the defenders from receiving any supplies. ___ Germany's Luftwaffe was heavily relied upon for the bombardment of the city to keep supplies out as well as scramble the Soviet's defense. Stuka Dive bombers, in particular, were used to strike the Soviet fleets at the ports of Leningrad. Although successful in sinking Soviet battleship Marat and attacking several other Soviet warships, Germany's Luftwaffe was not successful in effectively destroying the fleet. ___ Eventually, German morale declined as their forces were not able to successfully break Leningrad's defenses and there was a failure of cooperation between German and Finnish forces in the North as it allowed Soviet forces to shift their defenses on the German front. The lack of cooperation also meant that the Germans were not able to launch an offensive from the Finn-occupied northern corridor or shell the city from the north. ___ The siege finally ended on January 27th, 1944 as the last of the German troops withdrew from the region although German shelling would continue. The siege of Leningrad became one of the longest and most destructive sieges in history, and today is possibly considered the costliest in the amount of casualties suffered. _______________________________________________________ #worldwar2 #worldwartwo #worldwar2history #ww2 #wwii #war #worldwar2historyandinstagram #history #warhistory #axis #allied #warphotography #soldiers #generals #ww2dailyhistory #military #militaryhistory #follow #worldwar2incolor #tanks #planes #ww2daily #combat #combathistory #axishistory #alliedhistory #historiansunion

mouseandmoore. Ghostly collection of 3 Georgian wax portraits. Apparitions of Admiral

Ghostly collection of 3 Georgian wax portraits. Apparitions of Admirals Nelson, Howe & mystery! In original frames and glazing with inventory numbers on reverse. Wax in great condition but I was drawn to the overall condition and patination of deep frame and glass, like looking though time! Nelson is troubled - broken back glass, some wax lost - but he’s my favourite! Love that the damage reveals the painted backing. Dating around 1800 DM for details #admiralnelson #georgian #englishnavyhistory #georgianportrait #georgianminiature #18thcentury #patina #antiqueportrait #militaryhistory #antiquedealersofinstagram #georgianrenovation #waxminiature #icollector #decorative #decorativeantiques #periodhomes #countryhouseantiques #countryhouseportrait #decay #englishantiques #navalhistory #maritimehistory #interiorstyling #historicdecoration #18thcenturyart #shadowbox

The synchronized gun was surely one of the most advanced innovation in the air war. Experiments began in the years just before the Great War. The Fokker Eindecker was one of the first to introduce it. Comparing the plane with nowdays fighter jets it's seems like an ancient machine. But at that time was the technological non plus ultra in terms of air war technology. #ww1 #greatwar #fokker #militaryhistory #plane #aviationgeek

Operation Babylift. Over the month of April, 1975 some 3,300 infants and children were evacuated from South Vietnam leading up to the Fall of Saigon (which spawned another iconic image). The children were ostensibly orphaned and we're travelling to the US for adoption. More than the human concern, the operation presented a real logistical challenge. As one Pan Am flight attendant recalled, "We constantly peeked into bassinets to make sure each baby was still breathing. I froze as I flashed my light on each little back, waiting for what seemed like hours to see a ribcage move with the breath of life." #historyphotography #historyfacts #historicalphotos #historic #history #historia #photojournalism #photography #blackandwhitephotography #vietnam #military #militaryhistory #war #planes #travel #travelphotography #adoption #dirtyhistory

A F6F-3 Hellcat from VF-1 squadron takes off from Tarawa Airfield, Betio Island. In the foreground is the wreckage of a Mitsubishi A6M2 'Zero' belonging to the airfield's former owners, November 1943. __ Immediately after the battle, Tarawa Airfield was repaired and expanded for use by American forces. It was renamed "Hawkins Field" in honor of Marine 1st Lt. William Dean Hawkins who was killed in the battle to recapture Tarawa and posthumously awarded the Medal of Honor. The airfield was used by fighters, light aircraft, medium bombers and for emergency landings. __ Colorized by Rui Manuel Candeias. _______________________________________________________ #worldwar2 #worldwartwo #worldwar2history #ww2 #wwii #war #worldwar2historyandinstagram #history #warhistory #axis #allied #warphotography #soldiers #generals #ww2dailyhistory #military #militaryhistory #follow #worldwar2incolor #tanks #planes #ww2daily #combat #combathistory #axishistory #alliedhistory #historiansunion

Couple of very quick pencil sketches - one is of Moroccan soldiers at Monte Cassino inspired by watching @garylineker doc on his grandfather. The other is a US soldier in Vietnam #ww2 #worldwar2 #montecassino #ddaydodgers #moroccan #vietnam #vietnamwar #sketch #sketchbook #pencil #drawing #history #militaryhistory #graphicnovel #graphicnovelart Worth watching Gary’s doc if you can on BBC iplayer. Wish he had mentioned the other nations involved in the Italy campaign like NZ, Indians, Algerians, French, Moroccans and Poles etc - did sound a bit like it was only Brits and Americans there.

historicalhistorynow. The Hundred Years was a 116 year series of conflicts between the Kingd

The Hundred Years was a 116 year series of conflicts between the Kingdoms of England and France. Due to the length, popular culture paints different sides and leaders as the antagonists and protagonists. In the new Netflix film “The King”, Henry V is the hero, although the reason is conflicted. Henry V has always been popular due to the Shakespeare play and his underdog victory at Agincourt. This can seem odd due to his successes being short lived. In other settings, the French are the heroes, with Joan of Arc being the most romanticized. History seems to like its underdog stories, and in this conflict the hero is usually that. Ultimately, France would be the victors but the war shaped both countries futures for centuries to come. #theking #hundredyearswar #thehundredyearswar #kingdomofengland #kingdomoffrance #englishhistory #frenchhistory #europeanhistory #henryv #shakespeare #joanofarc #agincourt #battleofagincourt #militaryhistory #history #historical #historicalhistorynow
