WW2

Today marks the 80th year since the bloodiest war in the history of man.  Early in the day, Hitler’s Nazi Germany invaded Poland setting off the spark of events that spiraled into World War II.  It’s bee sugar coated, it’s been glorified, it’s been everything under the sun, but at the end of the day, it was a war.  A terrible war with atrocities all over the place.  Terrible things happened, and terrible scars are still healing all over the world.

Thankfully we’ve lived in relative peace for the last 80 years, let us hope that it remains that way for further generations to come.

75 Years of D-Day

D-Day

The passage of time move slowly yet surly forward.  It cannot be stopped, rewound, or ignored.  Sometimes it seems like it’s paused when we go to sleep, but it moves on with or without our knowledge and most of all, without our blessing.  In the grand scheme of things, 75 years is not a long time.  For many millions of people it’s a lifetime.  For many thousands of people, 75 years ago was a turning point in their lives.  Today we remember the sacrifice they made to ensure freedom throughout the world.

Take some time out of your busy day to remember what happened 75 years ago.  Be thankful that you weren’t required to go through hell and back then, and be thankful that you don’t have to now.

The Gustav Gun

Admiring the Gustav Gun

World War 2 was the most devastating war in human history.  If we forget about the events that ended the war thousands of miles away, Germany, Europe and the rest of the combatants used plenty of conventional weapons to wreck havoc on each other for nearly 6 years.

The above shows Hitler and some generals admiring the massive Gustav Gun.  A weapon so large that it was mounted on rails.  It fired shells over 30 inches in diameter weighing 7 tons at a range of nearly 30 miles.  The main purpose was to utterly destroy the forts of the Maginot Line.  Though it was transported and used in Operation Barbarossa.

Unfortunately, it was destroyed by the Germans themselves in order to prevent it’s capture by those damned Commies towards the end of the war in 1945.  And while there have been more massively wide guns made, The Gustav remains the largest caliber rifle ever used in war time.

Check out this quick little video regarding some of the famous railroad guns:

Iron Sky 2

Nazis on the Moon, Reptilian Margaret Thatcher.  Nazis in general.  This looks like an awesome film doesn’t it?  Historically accurate documentary is what I would call it.  Luckily, the Indiegogo campaign is fulfilled, so this scene can actually happen in the final film.  Aren’t you excited?

D-Day

D-Day

Seventy-two years ago the greatest invasion the world has ever seen began.  Led by the great Dwight D. Eisenhower, over 150,000 Allied troops landed across 5 different stretches of beaches in hopes of liberating France from the clutches of Nazi control.  This might not have been the turning point of the war, but in the eyes of the public, this was motivation needed to prove that the might of the Nazis wasn’t as iron-clad as everyone thought.

There are many important events in the history of WW2.  I could go on and on about them, (I usually do).  But I tend to focus on the big events.  Today is one of them.  Nazi Germany signed their unconditional surrender on this day in 1945.  There’s a lot I could say about it, but I don’t want to, and I would either re-hash what you could read on wikipedia, or come up with a weird version for an alternate-history.  I’m not in a mood for that.  So you get to read me for a few more seconds, then continue on with your life.
