Before a pretense could be found, however, Hitler declared war on the USA. While it took some time to fully gear up, the American soldiers were soon crossing both the Atlantic and the Pacific. Failures in the Netherlands and the slow push of Operation Queen frustrated American efforts at first. Despite gains, the German war machine could not reach its true goals or sustain the new front. Its collapse yielded a somewhat easier invasion of the western half of the country and the diverted resources meant a Soviet push yielded the same. In Germany surrendered. In the Pacific, the US was reeling from Japanese assaults. Aircraft became a primary focus for American advancement over the sea and a winning strategy was formed. Instead of a protracted war for control of territory, they simply took strategic islands that could support airfields and ignored heavily defended areas of little interest. Replacement ships and aircraft and the new island airfields guaranteed a US victory.

Share He squeezed the trigger and fired — hitting the Russian right between the eyes. Despite earning many pats on his back from his comrades, Allerberger still felt a sense of revulsion at what he had done. However, none of his kills can match what was achieved in Afghanistan last year by an unnamed lance corporal in the Coldstream Guards.
On December 14, British troops in Central Helmand had spotted a suspected Taliban suicide bomber on the move and were sent to intercept him. A firefight ensued, during which the British sniper observed a Taliban fighter armed with an AK47 climbing out of a ditch. Unknown to the marksman, the terrorist was wearing a suicide vest, which was detonated by the high-velocity round. Not only was the bomber vaporised, but so, too, were five of his fellow Taliban.
With just one shot, the British sniper had killed six of the enemy. Yesterday, when news of this shot broke, it made headlines around the world, revealing our enduring fascination with snipers. The role of the sniper is very different to that of most military men. While the majority of soldiers work in units, the sniper usually works alone.

But long before Hefner helped redefine the benchmarks of social status for men — replacing the domesticity of lawnmowers and white-picket fences with cocktails, stylish clothes, and a swinging bachelor lifestyle in an all-American mix of sex and materialism — he was a young, wet-behind-the-ears GI preparing for war. And if things had gone differently, Playboy magazine might never have existed. He was a fair soldier, according to Steven Watts in his biography Mr.

Aaron Calderon, a creature of habit in the way only a Marine drill master can be, this will be a summer of radical change. But starting Tuesday evening, during a planned refurbishment of what is formally known as the U. Marine Corps War Memorial, the ritual of precision and patriotism moves temporarily to a bigger stage, the steps of the Lincoln Memorial. It promises to be a very different — and much bigger — venue.
For the more civilian-timed evening performance, the Marines expect between 8, and 10, people to pack the memorial steps and surrounding viewing areas.

Rifle grenade A new method of launching grenades was developed during the First World War and used throughout the Second. The principle was to use the soldier’s standard rifle as an ersatz mortar, mounting a grenade in many older cases an infantry hand grenade fitted with a propelling charge, using an adaptor or socket on the weapon’s muzzle or inside a mounted launching cup, and usually firing with the weapon’s stock resting on the ground.
For older rifle grenades, igniting the charge generally required loading the parent rifle with a special blank propellant cartridge, though modern rifle grenades can be fired using live rounds using “bullet trap” and “shoot through” systems. While older systems required the soldier carry a separate adaptor or cup to attach to the rifle to make it ready to launch such as the German Schiessbecher , later rifle grenades were often designed to attach to the standard factory-mounted flash hider of the parent rifle; for example, the NATO-standardised 22mm rifle grenade can be mounted to most post-WW2 Western military rifles without the need for an adaptor.
The disadvantage of this method is that when a soldier wants to launch a grenade, they must mount the grenade to the muzzle prior to each shot. If they are surprised by a close-range threat while preparing to fire the grenade, they have to reverse the procedure before they can respond with rifle fire.

Luminous disks st man wearing disk on front of helmet Luminous or fluorescent disks were issued on a limited scale to paratroops for the Normandy jump. These small disks were attached to the front or back of the helmet so that the men could see each other in darkness. In this article I try to give a detailed view on the variations that existed, as well as the containers they were issued in. But first a word on who used them and how.
It is often identified as a pathfinder item, but that is just talk to drive up the price in auctions. I also have my doubts about the actual usefulness of these disks in combat. It is true that these disks glow even in total darkness, without having to first shine a torch on them to charge them even after more than 60 years! With the same blackout that was in force throughout occupied Europe, we can assume that there was no ambient light that night of June streetlights, houses… , only German flak fire to ruin your night vision.
