Richard Nixon's schedule just in case Apollo 11 crashed
This is actually a man the Author knew, it was his dentist in the 60s through 90s I believe. The guy went to Singapore as a dentist for the NZDF. He is the man with the Thompson, the man next to him is sort of like a squire, as the Dentist was an Officer.
This is a letter from Bill Guarnere of Easy Company
Young Stalin, his photo record on jail by his revolutionary actions.
Oh yeah, for sure, one General, I forget who, his plan for the Soviet blockade of Berlin was to go to war with Russia, he wanted to nuke as much as he could then invade, instead the Berlin airlift happened.
>Just think, if JFK listened to the military during the Cuban Missile Crisis. we probably wouldn't be here
Pffft. Of course we would, and the world would likely be a better place.
Hell, the Cuban Missile Crisis wasn't even the most tense part of the Cold War, that happened in the 80's when the US was deploying Pershing Missiles to Europe.
Goddamn, that was some scary fucking times.
German dug grave for RAF pilot in north Africa
There's a lot of those expressions in period photographs.
This is fucking hilarious for so many reasons.

I got no sympathy for the murderous Nazi bastard.
Spanish Civil War. Anarchist republican soldiers (the good ones) shooting a Jesus monument.
Antietam battlefield last week, the sunken road depicted I. the opening scene of Glory
Trench Art made during the Balkan Wars in the 1990's.
Murricans of /b/, I have a question.
How come we never see or hear anything about the black regiments of your army in WW2? Weren't there loads of them? Didn't conscription apply to them as much as the rest of your population at the time?
How come every WW2 movie/TV show only has white people in it?
Not being SJW I swear, I'm just wondering is there a reasonable explanation for this I'm not seeing.
Wow SS Poleizi division... I've not seen that one before
>A pyramid in New York built of helmets taken from dead German soldiers during WWI
Man, 1910 times were scaaaryy.
Not SS, just regular polizei
>tfw when own M1 Carbine allegedly brought back from Iwo.
The US Army was deeply segregated during the war, black soldiers were drafted but used mainly for logistical support and supply chain. There were exceptions like the Tuskegee pilots, but those were rare exceptions. The German military was more integrated than the US military at that time

Australian soldiers walking through a forrest near Ypres. 1917
You are right, I wasn't looking at my images.
That is a cropped image of men from SS polizei regiment - Bozen
Washington press reporters running to the telephones to break the news of the Pearl Harbor attack.
Look at the smiles
Thats pretty fuckin metal
glad someone got a kick out of it.
Why can't society do cool shit like that anymore?
Inb4 someone gets buttmad.
there was actually some regiment I remember learning about. they were amazing in the field losing little to no men and succsessful in the tasks given... but ofcourse overlooked. there might have been a movie about them, I know there is one about the tuskegee airmen and what not.
Women are more prized based on the better they look now days. Back then it was more about how useful she would have been around the house.
>A public bathroom shortly after a man relieved himself of the Taco Bell he consumed earlier.
Was only used during the siege of Sevastopol, and was later bombed by the German's to prevent it's capture. Thing was designed to level forts, and just generally wreck shit
>these guys are going to fight the nazis but in reality the real enemy was back home.
You are an idiot.
The real enemy were the guys gassing millions of people on an industrial scale. Assembly line techniques applied to exterminational eugenics.
And we won't bring up the hijinks that Imperial Japan was getting up to.
Comparing America's warts to that sort of thing and claiming with a straight face that it was worse? Somebody's been drinking too much of that delicious SJW koolaid.
btw that's not gustav but a smaller railway gun
I think this is CGI but I'm assuming it's the Krakatoa eruption.

Welcome to being a part of humanity, kiddo.
The Pax America that's kept things nice for the last 30-odd years is ending, thanks to our current administration.
I hope you all like interesting times, gents.
providing high powered fire support for urban infantry missions. Basicly sniper in building this levels building.
>Hard to understand the purpose of something like that
It's an armored siege mortar, designed for urban combat. That fat tube would fire huge explosive charges a few hundred feet, wipe out buildings and shit.
Panther (pz5) designed to look like an american m10 wolverine. It was made using a photo from the game world of tanks so I had to rewrite the m10 dialogue.
I don't doubt that.
I do however very much doubt the Moon landing. Especially being in 1969. There is no way in hell that happened. Not saying we really couldn't go if we wanted to now. I don't doubt that.
