  • Admiral of the Fleet Philip Louis Vian

    During World War I, he served on the destroyer HMS Morning Star and took part in the Battle of Jutland in 1916. In July 1941, at the age of 47, Vian was specially promoted to Rear Admiral by First Admiralty Lord Sir Dudley Pound.

  • Battle of Brunanburh

    A little English poetry for good night

    Translation of a poem from the Anglo-Saxon Chronicle The Battle of Brunanburh

  • Charley Havlat, a useless death with a great deal of irony

    The last American soldier killed in action during World War II on the European battlefield.
    Charley Havlat was the son of Czech emigrants Antonín Havlát (born in Ronov) and Antonia Havlátová birth name Němcová. Fate has prepared for him an end full of irony.

  • Ford GPA Amphibious

    The vehicle proved to be too slow, heavy and clumsy on land and too small to fit on the high seas. The vehicle was used by the Americans during the landing in Sicily on September 9, 1943, where it played an important role, but most of the vehicles ended up in the Red Army as part of Land-Lease deliveries. The irony is that the Russians found it so useful in crossing rivers that it became the basis for the development of their own post-war version (GAZ-46).

  • HMAS AE1

    At the beginning of the First World War, together with the Australian fleet, it participated in the occupation of the German Pacific colonies. Together with her sister AE2, she participated in the operation leading to the occupation of the German part of New Guinea, including the surrender of Rabaul on September 13, 1914.

  • HMAS Parramatta

    The fate of the first ship of the Australian Navy.

  • Ivan Mikhailovich Chissov - seven kilometers by free fall

    Ivan Mikhailovich Chissov, a war pilot with an unwanted record. If the parachute does not open, one can enter the list of war losses or the record book. This man did the latter. The flight attendant overcame him.

  • John Paul Jones

    A pirate for the English, a great military leader for the Russians and a ( lost and rediscovered ) national hero for the Americans.

  • Lord Louis Francis Albert Victor Nicholas Mountbatten

    The life and death of the last Indian viceroy and the First Lord of the navy.

  • Instead of a bomb shooter or 6000 meters free fall

    B-17 Shooter Story "Snap! Crackle! Pop!" S / Sgt Alan Mageeho.

  • Operation Jaywick

    One of the most successful secret actions of the Allies in the rear of the Japanese armed forces during World War II. 8000 km on a fishing boat to the Japanese port and back.

  • Philip Louis Vian

    Admiral of the British Royal Navy

  • PRP-1 Kopáč

    This Czechoslovak passive searcher was developed mainly on the basis of patents of doc. Vlastimil Pech CSc., who was the first to bring the technique of detecting the target using the time-hyperbolic method, a system today called English TDOA (time difference of arrival / capture (signals)), to such perfection that it was possible to track the target accurately and display it in real time.

  • Farewell to Andula or the old lady is leaving, Miss CASA is coming

    On April 28, 2011, after 29 years, the Czech Air Force said goodbye to the Antonov An-26. On this day, the last two aircraft of fuselage numbers 2408 and 2507 were ceremoniously decommissioned at Prague-Kbely Airport in the presence of the staff of the 24th zDL, former and current members of the flying and technical staff and other guests of honor.

  • Saint Martin or It Started with Mars

    Mars, Martin, Saint Martin What do these three have in common, or the journey from God, the protector of the harvest, through the god of the warrior to the Christian saint, the patron saint of soldiers.

  • Szent István, tragic movie star

    He was the worst and yet he became a movie star. He became Goliath in a clash with a modern-day David. Though almost exclusively Hungarian, his strength came from Bohemia. And who or what is this mysterious star?
    Meet the tragic star of the movie screen, the dreadnought of the Austro-Hungarian Navy, SMS Szent István.

  • The Fighting Temeraire

    The painting that was voted Britain's most popular painting in England. A painting by Joseph Mallord William Turner. What is so interesting about it and what makes it special? What or who is Temeraire? And why it appears here, on a server that is not dedicated to art, but, as the name suggests, war, battlefields, soldiers, weapons and related things. This article can answer all this.

  • USS Liberty

    Israeli mistake on June 8, 1967

  • A war hero and a perfect politician or a despot and a monster?

    Cromwell is one of the most controversial figures in British and Irish history, considered a regicidal dictator, a military dictator, a bourgeois revolutionary, and a hero of liberty. His tolerance of Protestant sects did not extend to Catholics, and some later scholars have characterised the measures he took against them, particularly in Ireland, as genocidal or near-genocidal. His record is strongly criticised in Ireland, although the worst atrocities took place after he had returned to England. He was selected as one of the ten greatest Britons of all time in a 2002 BBC poll.
