The book is almost done, which is crazy! I’ve taken an approach that was inspired by @thatjordanbrady - his book “Commercial Directing Voodoo,” is one that you can read cover to cover in one sitting and it will still leave you with your mind blown. I’m going to condense mine into a similar fashion. That will move my revision dates; distribution dates and publication dates up by a few months, which is exciting, but also scares the living shit out of me. Thanks for all of the support. Don’t forget to check out the latest episodes of the @nothowitsdone podcast. Jay and I are still crushing it, but I’m expanding out and doing interviews with veterans, trauma survivors, and more. I hope to use the podcast to help inspire and pull people out of a bad place through our shared experiences. My goal is to hit the road with the book for a bit and talk to other survivors about their experiences and to help others in their recovery, so any help would be greatly appreciated. Maybe I’ll even share the mock-up of the cover soon. - - - - #traumarecovery #traumasurvivor #posttraumaticgrowth #mynewbook #mybrand #buildmybrand #readmybook #comedianlife #comedynerd #podcasters #newbooks #newbookstagram #newbooksmell #newbookrelease #publishers #publisher #selfpublisher #selfpromo #historynerd #sportsnerds #militaryhistory #militarymemes #posttraumaticstressdisorder #publicspeakingtips #motivationalspeaking #motivationalspeakers #publishingtips #almostfinished #lookatthisdude

the_kriegsberichter_41. The photograph here shows a studio family portrait of a Flak Unteroffi

The photograph here shows a studio family portrait of a Flak Unteroffizier and wife and two sons. The attached photograph shows the bottom of the photograph that reads the two names of his sons, the left reads Hannes and the right being Willi. The two sons seen both with toys, Hannes seen with a detailed ball in front of his mum, she is seen with her hand on his shoulder and Willi seen holding his dads hand and holding onto a teddy bear. The tresse around his collar tabs and shoulderboards denote his rank of Unteroffizier. He is seen here standing wearing his greatcoat and belt, seen smartly with a shirt and tie underneath. Seen smart for the occasion with his wife also seen dressed smart with a hat and flowers on her coat. This portrait likely being kept close by the Unteroffizier whilst in service in memory of his wife and two sons when away I combat or on barracks. He would reflect on this and think of home in hard times. You can only feel for these children being born into a world of conflict, the look on Hanne’s eyes fill you with empathy. The Unteroffizier’s name and his wife’s name are unknown, their fates are also unknown but you can only hope they survived. But it is likely they were unfortunately another family destroyed by war. This is a fine and crisp example of a family studio portrait. #21 in the #kb41memoirs series! #ww2 #wwii #ww2german #ww2germany #flak #secondworldwar #history #historical #ww2dailyhistory #family #series #photooftheday #military #militaryhistory #militaria #collection #portrait #photography #kriegs #kb41photographs #familyportrait #luftwaffe #wehrmacht #service #memoir #personal #ww #photo

megan_military_historian_. \"🇵🇱 Łomża Fortress\" ••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••

"🇵🇱 Łomża Fortress" •••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••• Caption for all photos - 🇵🇱 Outer walls and defense openings of Fort I, II, III, of the Łomża Fortress, all abandoned and overgrown by the surrounding fields and tall grass. Those walls and defenses are no longer of any military value or use as fortress like this one have long been an outdated line of defense, these remain as a remembrance to three brutal wars. I took these photos on an almost cloudless day. -------------------------------------------- This old Russian fortress was built between 1897 - 1909, along the borders of East Prussia at a time when three old empires divided Poland. The five areas of the fortress were built in 1887 in a circular form and modified over time, on banks of the Narew River, near Łomża, (present-day northern Poland}. Those areas included barracks, shelters against artillery, opening for crossing fields of fire against enemy troops, and a communication center. -------------------------------------------- There had been plans to built more forts - „Kalinowo“, Rządkowo", „Czarnocin“, „Jeziorko“ and „Budy“, although by 1909 that construction had been abandoned by the Russians. It's use in the Great War is unknown, although in the defensive battles of 1920 against the Soviets advancing towards Warsaw, the Poles successfully defended the Łomża area from the Soviet attacks from July 28th - August 1st 1920. -------------------------------------------- During the September Campaign in 1939, Polish forces defended the surrounding Narew-Łomża from German forces attacking from East Prussia from September 7th - 10th, 1939. Those Polish soldiers were of the „18 Dywizja Piechoty (II RP“. The fortress long abandoned after three wars and German occupation, now empty with graffiti and trash do litter some of its interior. I visited this fort when I was in the Łomża area of Poland, a few days before June 20th, 2016. [I had a conversation with @history_and_modern_world_facts about this fort and that area of Poland, as what happened there in the decades after the Second World War]. — #🇵🇱PolandAfterTheColdWar

German flamethrower attack on French trenches in Verdun. Though projected incendiary weapons such as Greek fire were used in naval engagements by ancient Byzantines and Chinese, the modern flamethrower made its debut in 1901, when Richard Fiedler submitted his "Flammenwerfer" design to the German Army. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Most flamethrower designs consisted of a vertical single cylinder carried on a soldier’s back, horizontally divided in two, one filled with a flammable liquid, the other with propellant gas. The squeeze of a trigger would send the liquid shooting across an igniter, projecting a jet of burning fuel at targets up to 18 meters away. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ The first combat use of the flamethrower came on Feb. 26, 1915, against the French near Verdun. The usefulness of the weapon was limited by its short range and limited mobility. On July 30, 1915, flamethrowers were used effectively against British positions at Hooge to flush soldiers out of their trenches and into the open. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ The flamethrower, like poison gas, was a psychologically terrifying weapon, leading to its use by the German Army in more than 650 attacks in the war. It was also adopted by the British and French over the course of the conflict.

The Sergeant of the Royal Garrison Artillery Lowland Heavy Battery, a Territorial unit based in Edinburgh is transferring target information to his notebook.

papaswoodshopz. The Handcrafted Civil War Battle Flag Series.  Pictured are just a few

The Handcrafted Civil War Battle Flag Series. Pictured are just a few of the photos of actual, historical battle flags of the Civil War. Each flag photo is embedded in clear epoxy resin and crafted onto a Civil War pen. The cap of the pen is a replica of a 58 cal musket ball (minie ball) and the rip is a replica of a 44 cal pistol. The pocket clip is a replica of the 1862 Springfield musket loading rifle. Included is a pamphlet describing a brief history of the Springfield Rifle and an optional authentic 58 cal minie ball recovered from a Civil War battlefield. You will be holding a piece of American history. The pen hardware is available in antique brass, antique pewter, or gun metal (pictured). Please let me know If there is a particular battle flag you want embedded. All pens are individually handcrafted by me. #civilwar #civilwarhistory #americancivilwar #civilwarreenactment #civilwarphotography #confederacy #confederateflag #confederatepride #gift #giftideas #giftsforhim #giftsforher #americanhistory #military #militaryhistory

equipment.of.war. The Covenanter tanks were ultimately a failure. It was not the greates

The Covenanter tanks were ultimately a failure. It was not the greatest moment of British tank engineering. Although probably not as bad a oopsie as the A38 Valiant. ▪︎▪︎▪︎ It had good angular hull armour, but it was all riveted on, instead of welded. Why? Because there wasn't enough welders around and fully welding a cruiser tank was too new at that time for them. But this introduced an increase in weight that was not originally accounted for. To rivet two plates they needed a support frame to rivet it on. Then the wheels were made of steel as the air industry had called dibs on light alloys. Again the weight goes up. The tracks were pretty thin and just managed to take the weight. The armour was made thicker to 30mm I believe adding more weight. By the time all this happened, the suspensions was almost at its limit. So therefore not a lot of new updates could be put in. ▪︎▪︎▪︎ Then there was the issue with the meadows flat 12 and the radiators not being near each other and therefore the cooling system for the engine was bad. Hot water pipes ran through the fighters compartment. Although most likely to affect the driver, the three crew men in the turret also probably did not want to fight with hot water pipes around them in the desert. With all this issues, none of the 1200 actually saw combat. Only one was knocked out by enemy action when the train it was on got bombed. #20thcenturyhistory
