Sherman Tank ‘Casemate’ or Bunker at Driel (Gelderland, The Netherlands) not far from the city of Arnhem. A tank casemate is a special casemate in which a tank or other combat vehicle is concreted and serves as a fixed defense work. Tank casemates have been used extensively in the Netherlands to defend the weirs of the IJssel line during the Cold War. ——————————————————————— After the end of World War II, the Netherlands had a large amount of military material that was left in large dumps by the Allies after the liberation. Much of this equipment was in poor condition, but the turrets and cannons were still usable. Little money and time was available for the construction and defense of the IJssel Line. In order to defend the various works, in connection with the Cold War atmosphere of the time, the army placed the tanks in tactical locations and poured them in concrete. ——————————————————————— #shermantank #casemate #tankcasemate #bunker #allies #worldwar2 #tweedewereldoorlog #ww2 #wwii #ww2history #coldwar #driel

17 Nisan1961'de Amerikan silahlarıyla donatılmış ve CIA yönetimindeki yaklaşık 1300 karşıdevrimci Kübalı, Küba'nın güney sahillerindeki Bahía de Cochinos'a (Domuzlar Körfezi) çıkarma yaptı. CIA, isyancıların karşı devrim yapmasını değil, Havana'da kargaşa çıkmasını ve o kargaşa sırasında Castro'nun suikastla öldürülmesini planlıyordu. Bu şekilde isyancıların hükümeti ele geçirdiği süsü verilip, bu hayalet hükümet hemen ABD tarafından tanınacak ve ABD ordusu "yardım etmek" maksadıyla devrilecek hükümeti tamamen ezecekti. Ancak çıkarmayı gerçekleştiren güçler, Kübalıların beklenmedik bir direnişliyle karşılaştı. İki gün süren bir çatışmadan sonra teslim olmak zorunda kaldılar ve 1000'den fazla karşıdevrimci esir alındı. Esirler yargılanıp vatana ihanetten 30'ar yıl hapis cezasına çarptırıldılar. Daha sonra ABD ile yapılan görüşmeler neticesinde mahkûmlar, 53 milyon dolarlık ilaç ve gıda karşılığında ABD'ye iade edildiler. ________________________________ #war#savaş#fidelcastro🇨🇺#fidelcastro#soguksavas#soğuksavaşdnemi#soguksavaş#jfkennedy#küba#kuba#kübadevrimi#coldwar#usa

On this day, 45 years ago, the Mitsubishi T-2 first flew. It was created by Japan's need for a more advanced trainer aircraft after negotiations to license-produce foreign aircraft fell through. It was the first Japanese-built aircraft to break the sound barrier in level-flight. _____________________________________________ #warthunder #aircraft #airplane #airplanes #plane #planes #warplane #warplanes #flugzeug #jet #jets #supersonic #airforce #usaf #raf #luftwaffe #ww2 #wwii #worldwar2 #pilotlife #militaryhistory #boeing #airbus #rocket #missile #advancedwarfare #coldwar #mitsubishi #mitsubishit2

China’s Foreign Ministry on Wednesday said there was “no need for third party intervention” on the border row with India and both nations were “capable” of resolving the issue. This comes a day after Prime Minister Narendra Modi and U.S. President Donald Trump discussed the border situation in a telephone call. New Delhi on Tuesday said the border situation was discussed by the two leaders, during which Mr. Trump also spoke of expanding the Group of Seven to include India and invited Mr. Modi for the next summit to be held in the U.S. The other members are Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Japan and the U.K. #geopolitics #china #USA #coldwar #India #politicalkhabar #chinaforeignministry

Bei der #authorpositivity-Challenge geht es diese Woche um #Strken, die wir an uns und unserem Schreiben wahrnehmen… Das können wir richtig gut #3: #Hellsehen 🔮 Na ja, nicht wirklich, versteht sich, aber manchmal kommt uns das so vor… Gerade bei unserem aktuellen Projekt haben wir irgendwann gedacht „Das kann jetzt echt nicht wahr sein!“ mit einer Mischung folgender Gesichtsausdrücke: 😳, 😤 und 😡. Was genau wir meinen, wird noch nicht verraten, aber wenn demnächst der Klappentext kommt, werdet ihr sicher wissen, warum. Man kann sich als Autor oft — wenn auch manchmal nur in gewisser Weise — freuen, wenn die eigene Fiktion ‘von der Realität eingeholt wird’... Uns hat es in diesem Fall aber doch hauptsächlich Nerven gekostet und den Schreibprozess definitiv gehemmt 😕 Andererseits versuchen wir es mal unter #amPulsderZeit zu verbuchen und uns keine zu großen Sorgen zu machen. . ◾️ #StillerStiller #StillerBooks #authorpositivity #autorenchallenge #autoren #autorenaufinstagram #writersofinstagram #autorenleben #autorenwahnsinn #neuesbuch #neuverffentlichung #krimi #thriller #archologie #ddr #coldwar #coldwarfiction #writingcommunity #schreibenistschn ◾️ @Kathinka.Engel ◾️

The 1960 Supreme Court ruling of Boynton vs Virginia deemed the segregation of interstate public transportation illegal under the terms of the Interstate Commerce Act. This ruling, which struck down the Jim Crow laws in place across much of the American South, was then put to the test starting in 1961 by the so-called Freedom Rides. The Freedom Rides consisted of mixed racial groups riding interstate buses across the South, challenging racial segregation laws; these rides were often met with violent response including violent beatings of riders and even a bus being firebombed. These violent attacks were sometimes condoned by local law enforcement, who would be deliberately slow to stop the attacks. Those riders who were arrested often faced harsh conditions in local jails. The Freedom Rides garnered much public sympathy for the Riders and for the Civil Rights Movement and by May Attorney General Robert Kennedy ordered the Interstate Commerce Commission to enforce desegregation orders. The Freedom Rides continued until November of 1961 when the orders came into effect, allowing passengers to sit wherever they chose on the bus; "white" and "colored" signs came down in the terminals; separate drinking fountains, toilets, and waiting rooms were consolidated; and lunch counters began serving people regardless of skin color. #TheColdWar #ColdWar #ColdWarHistory #desegregation #freedomride #freedomriders #civilrights #civilrightsmovement #civilrightsactivist #civilrightshistory
