Dogfights

Dogfights have always attracted attention. Since the First World War, their participants have been considered heroes, stories have been written about nothing, and they have become idols of generations. However, the reality of air combat is much more prosaic. Whatever the motivation of the pilots to fight, there was always a winner on one side and a loser on the other in a crippled or burning plane falling to the ground. This series deals with the struggle from their beginning to the modern age, when the sky is steadily ruled by jet engines.

DPRK and the consequences of the division of the Korean Peninsula

The divided Korean Peninsula is a place that raises many questions and differing views. The people who live on both sides of the Line of Demarcation have not had the slightest idea since the end of the war of the direction in which the fates of those on the opposite side had developed. There is also no postal connection between the capitals of the two states.

Identifying the dimensions that were affected by the division of the Korean Peninsula The division of the Korean Peninsula between the two new states affected several areas. For centuries, the Koreans were one united nation, and the division was thus reflected in all major dimensions. First, I would like to identify and name the most important ones. In the further course of the work, I will deal in detail with only a few of them, which, however, are based on other, less visible consequences, and therefore it is necessary to create a comprehensive overview. The main areas include cultural, demographic, political, security and socio-economic. The consequences of the partition of Korea affected all these areas.

The social consequences of the division of the Korean Peninsula for both countries today, with an emphasis on the DPRK Freedom of the population, respect for basic human rights, education and access to health care are of great importance for human life and . The causes and suggestions that have laid the foundation for the current situation will be analyzed in the subchapters for each country separately, as they vary greatly.

The economic consequences of the division of the Korean Peninsula for both countries from the end of the 20th century to the present with an emphasis on the DPRK The main event that affected both parts of the Korean Peninsula was undoubtedly the end of the Cold War and the collapse of the Soviet Union. This event, together with the political and economic foundations that have been established since the inception of both states , has been the cause of the changes that have followed over the next two decades. The next rapid wave of industrialization and modernization had different consequences in both countries. In North Korea, modern totalitarianism has been completed and a regime that has withstood even the greatest economic crises has not collapsed. By contrast, South Korea has embarked on a rapid rise and development in all areas of political, social and economic life and is becoming one of the world's economic powers.

F3D-2N versus MiG-15 - the controversial fight

Most Western publications state that the first night duel and the downing of jet fighters took place during the fighting in Korea, specifically on November 3, 1952. The other side, on the other hand, clearly denies the downing. A comparison of the available data reveals a number of ambiguities, which make this event a relatively controversial issue.

Frederick C. Blesse

You look forward to this moment all the time at school, but when you are left with an entire plane without an instructor, your hands sweat profusely. They warned me about the hole at the end of the runway, so I repeated during takeoff, don't forget the pool. After a few circuits, I chose landing practice. The landing was beautifully soft and I completely forgot about the pool in the joy that I am only good. Of course I parked in it. For another 6 weeks, everyone was pretending to be a poolless Blesse.

Korean history summed up in a single shot

Thirty years ago, on October 26, 1979, General Park Chung Hee, President of the Republic of Korea, was shot dead. In my opinion, his life and the circumstances of the assassination illustrate very well the complex history of the Korean Peninsula.

Soviet volunteers in the Korean War

On November 1, 1950, six Soviet fighters were assigned to patrol the Yalu River: Maj. Strojkov, Lt. Guts, Kaznachev and Lt. Monachov, Chiz and Sanin. The MiG-15 of the latter failed to start, so the remaining five led by a World War II veteran Strojkov, who had 16 individual victories, set out for the sky. At 14.15, the leader of the second pair of Lt. Col. Guts saw three Mustang fighters and the Soviets attacked without delay. They took too high a speed during the dive, so there was not much time left to aim and shoot. The Americans easily avoided the dose fired by Lt. Chiz and escaped back south by a ground flight. However, por. Chiz claimed the first victory.

The clutches of the American eagle I

Of all the armed forces of the West, the US military has the shortest and, I dare say, the strangest history. Usually, the armed forces go down in history through battle, and the strangeness of the American military begins with the fact that in the battle, which dates back to the beginning of the North American military, this army did not fight at all, because it did not exist yet.

The clutches of the American eagle II

The militia system of the army, which the United States preferred after its inception, did not allow the creation of a unified rear service. When war broke out with the Seminoles in Florida in 1818, engineering units had to be decommissioned to supply field units because civilian contractors failed to fulfill contracts. This led War Minister Calhoun to put pressure on Congress to release funds for intendant administration ...

The clutches of the American eagle III

At the end of the 19th century, the United States found itself in a special position. The country had no external enemy, after the defeat of Mexico, other American states recognized it as a hegemon, and the long sea borders were protected by the British navy. Due to mineral wealth, which also included oil on the list (fields in California and Texas), the US government had no ambition to gain control of foreign resources. This led to the fact that there was no strategy, no concept of defense, no plans against potential adversaries, that is, everything that was a matter of course in Europe ...

The clutches of the American eagle IV

At the turn of the 19th and 20th centuries, the United States resembled a sleepily contented boa constrictor. The success of the US Navy in the Spanish-American War opened the bag to Congress, and T. Roosevelt had no problem raising funds for the construction of new heavy units of the fleet. Suddenly, everyone seemed to understand the importance of the ocean fleet in the sense of the Mahan Doctrine - it was evident that the British fleet did not intend to cover the new US overseas economic interests of the Philippines, Cuba and Puerto Rico, although it de facto still ensured US security.

The clutches of the American eagle V

An armistice in November 1918 put the United States in a role with which it had no experience. Day by day, they became the world's leading power, and President Wilson, with his 14 points, took the lead in organizing post-war Europe ...

The clutches of the American eagle VI

Until World War II ended, President Roosevelt anxiously avoided any negotiations on postwar borders or state institutions. In December 1941, when he was badly oppressed, Stalin wanted to act and would allow the return of eastern Poland and the evacuation of the Baltic countries, but with the Red Army's advance to the west, his willingness faded to zero.

The clutches of the American eagle VII

If one can think of a specific date in which the United States became the first superpower of the modern world and gained strategic control over it, it is December 8, 1991, when the USSR was formally abolished - a global adversary with which it maintained for more than 40 years power balance ...

The Sioux Indian received the Medal of Honor of the US Congress

On March 3, 2008, Sgt. Woodrow Wilson Keeble became the first Sioux Indian to receive the highest U.S. military award, the Congressional Medal of Honor, for his heroism in combat during the Korean War. He did not live to see his honor, but for his tribe, it is a great award that finally appreciates the heroism and commitment of the original inhabitants of the American continent, with which he confronted aggressors around the world in the United States Army.

War in Korea 1950-1953

The military conflict that took place in Korea in 1950-53 was the first major clash between the totalitarian and democratic regimes after World War II. Although the war in Indochina has been going on ( or rather continued ) since 1945, the local population, albeit under communist leadership, fought against the French colonialists looting the country.

War in Korea 1950-1953

Sunday morning on June 25 was rainy. There was a rumble of artillery on the border between North and South Korea - nothing out of the ordinary, as armed conflicts in the border area were the order of the day.

War in Korea 1950-1953

The US Army was the strongest army in World War II and maintained this position ( at least on paper ) after the war. However, the actual state of the US Armed Forces was, to put it mildly, unsatisfactory. In 1950, the ground forces had only 10 divisions and 11 separate regiments, of which one infantry division, two infantry regiments and police units in the strength of the division were located in Europe.
