The story of the British Officer who went rogue and founded the SAS by @fuehrer_of_photography ________________________________________________________ If there hadn’t been a global war for survival taking place, Major David Stirling (left) is the type of British Officer who would have been thrown out of the army, if not court-martialed. As fate would have it, this rogue British Officer with a taste for action would found the famed British SAS and leave a legacy for one of the greatest clandestine fighting forces to enter harm’s way. Never mind that he broke into British Middle East Headquarters and ambushed a General with his plans for the SAS to gain approval, forget the fact that he raised the original SAS crew from a band of misfits and soldiers with disciplinary problems, and let’s not mention the fact that he stole half of the gear he needed from fellow Allied units. As the famed military saying goes, gear adrift is a gift, and Major David Stirling was simply one who knew how to open a gift. Without him, there would be no SAS, but thanks to him, enemies of Great Britain have every reason to sleep with one eye open. David Stirling was born in 1915 to an aristocratic family in Scotland. Stirling would display early on a heart for adventure and a joy for breaking the rules. While in college, he was dismissed for gambling and drinking before deciding that his life’s calling was to train to climb Mount Everest. During his training for the climb, broke out and David Stirling decided to join the Scots Guard in 1939. However, this career almost ended early when after a late night out he fell asleep in an officer’s class and was almost thrown out of the military by the instructor. But he would have a fateful rendezvous with this instructor later in the war that would prove remarkably instrumental in creating the British SAS. In 1940, he volunteered for the No. 8 Commando unit and was deployed to North Africa in August 1941. But almost as soon as he arrived, the commando unit was disbanded as many felt the tactics of the unit provided too little a return at too high a cost. But Stirling thought otherwise. He would take it upon himself to create the CONT⬇️⬇️

After WWI, Yugoslavia adopted the M1924 Mauser, based of the 1898 Mauser action. While they were waiting for domestic production to increase, they worked on modifying their WWI arms to closely resemble the new standard rifle. On the right is the 1899C rifle. It was originally used by Serbia in the two Balkan Wars and the Great War. It was a version of the 1893 pattern Mauser in 7mm and used a small ring action with a cock-on-close bolt. In contrast, the new M24 rifle had a large ring action and cock-on-open bolt, and was chambered in 8mm Mauser. Despite these differences, the engineers in Kragujevac were able to convert the 1899 rifle to look and operate very similarly to the new standard rifle. history

Третьего июня 2012 года из вод норвежского Хафрсфьорда (Hafrsfjord) был поднят поднят уникальный самолет — немецкий He-115 B/C — трехместный разведчик-торпедоносец, затонувший 28 декабря 1942 года после жесткой посадки на воду в километре от аэропорта Ставангера. Таких машин было построено 300 штук, и находка — сейчас единственный сохранившийся экземпляр. Подъем с сорокаметровой глубины обошелся в 250 тысяч крон, эти деньги выделили спонсоры. Вероятно, после реставрации самолет будет демонстрироваться в национальном авиамузее в городе Боде.

♦️♦️NASYONAL SOSYALİZM NEDİR?♦️♦️ Nasyonal Sosyalizm, siyasal olarak faşizmin Al­manya’daki uygulamasıdır. Milliyetçilik ile ekonomik açıdan sosyalizmi birleştiren bu görüşün en belirgin temel özellikleri ırkın üstünlüğü, tek parti ve tek adam diktatörlüğü, Yahudi ve kapitalizm düşmanlığıdır. Kuramsal alanda ise, ana çizgileriyle, on dokuzuncu yüzyılda gelişen Tarihçi Hu­kuk Okulu’nun “ırkçılık” anlayışıyla değişikliğe uğra­mış biçimidir. Nasyonal Sosyalizm fikrinin ilk ideoloğu Fransız teorisyen Maurice Barrès’dır.  On dokuzuncu yüzyıl düşünürü Fichte’de gelişmeye başlayan aşırı ulusçuluk, Hegel’de artık Al­man ulusunun dünyayı yönetmesi gerektiğinin savunul­masına kadar varır; Nazilere de bu üstün ırk görüşü­nü uygulamak düşer. Çoğu kez hem İtalyan faşizmi, hem de Alman Nas­yonal Sosyalizmi tek bir ad altında toplanarak, ikisine birden “faşizm” denilmektedir. Temel uygulama bakı­mından doğru sayılabilecek bu adlandırma, kuramsal alanda elverişsizdir. Nasyonal Sosyalizm ile faşizm arasındaki fark temeldedir. İtalyan faşizminde devlet en yüksek amaç, en yüksek değer ve son hedeftir. Devlet kutsaldır ve her şey devlet içindir ve devletin dışında bir şey yoktur. Ulus, ancak devlet içinde, devlet aracılığı ile gerçekleşebilir, varlık kazanır. Oysa Nasyonal Sosyalizme göre en yüksek değer “ırk”tır. Devlet bir amaç olmayıp (doğal olarak yalnız ku­ramsal alanda) sadece basit bir araç, bir kalıptır. Önemli olan bu kalıbı oluşturan içerik yani saf ırktır. Devlet ancak saf ırkı koruyabildiği, onu geliştirdiği ve ona yeni yaşam alanları açtığı sürece anlam taşır ve var olma hakkı kazanır. Demek ki faşizmde temel kavram devlet, Nasyonal Sosyalizmde ise ulus ya da ırktır. #warhistory Devamı yorumda
