During both ww1 and ww2 grenades were used extensively, they came in many different styles.
The most iconic grenades if the time were the American MK1 fragmentation grenade and the german Stielhand granate.
During ww1 grenades were used by every military, but they were more commonly used by trench raiding parties who would throw grenades into trenches, and anybody inside of that section of trench would be torn and punctured by the fragmentation. Or Military’s would use gas grenades that would release deadly gas that would kill or disable enemy soldiers.
Some soldiers would use rifle grenades which would be shot off of the end of a rifle, this enabled them to be launched a lot further than if they were thrown by hand.
Anyway you all always know where I'm at. You #advertise it enough and it turns out I don't need a friend. I am done with #lipservice though, and I hate the way you all live in #greed and #fear . It's not for me #sorry . If a #war is what is needed to change your minds, then so be it. I hope you enjoyed my #art and #music#talentshow project (distracting people is easy). I will also not be cleaning up all the #dead .
They will wage war against the #Lamb , but the Lamb will triumph over them because he is Lord of lords and King of kings--and with him will be his called, #chosen and #faithful followers." #Revelation 17:14
Reichsbahn Zugschaffner on leave at his home in Dhünn 1940
(Translation this is a train conductors uniform)
The Reichsbahn had an important logistic role in supporting the rapid movement of the troops of the Wehrmacht. In all the occupied lands the Reichsbahn endeavoured to incorporate the captured railways (rolling stock and infrastructure) into their system. Even towards the end of the war the Reichsbahn continued to move military formations. For example, in the last great offensive, the Battle of the Bulge (from 16 December 1944), tank formations were transported from Hungary to the Ardennes. During the war, locomotives in the war zones were sometimes given camouflage livery. In addition, locomotives were painted with the Hoheitsadler symbol (the eagle, Germany's traditional symbol of national sovereignty) holding a swastika. On goods wagons the name "Deutsche Reichsbahn" was replaced by the letters "DR". Postal coaches continued to bear the name "Deutsche Reichspost". The logistics of the Reichsbahn were crucial to the conduct of Germany's military offensives. The preparations for the invasion of Russia saw the greatest troop deployment by rail in history.

The total number of soldiers who served in the Wehrmacht during its existence from 1935 to 1945 is believed to have approached 18.2 million. The Wehrmacht lost about 10,000,000 soldiers during the period from 1939–1945, a combination of about 2,000,000 KIA, 3,000,000 MIA, and 5,000,000 WIA. Recruitment for the Wehrmacht was accomplished through voluntary enlistment (1933–45) and conscription (1935–45). As World War II intensified, Kriegsmarine (navy) and Luftwaffe (air force) personnel were increasingly transferred to the Heer (army), and "voluntary" enlistments in the SS were stepped up as well. Following the Battle of Stalingrad in 1943, fitness standards for Wehrmacht recruits were drastically lowered, with the regime going so far as to create "special diet" battalions for men with severe stomach ailments. Rear-echelon personnel were sent to front-line duty wherever possible, especially during the last two years of the war.
Sixth grade orientation was packed! We were so grateful for the wonderful turn-out of students and parents. We know many parents had to take off early from work to make it. The ROGERS class of 2025 is going to have an awesome sixth grade year. Thanks to supportive parents, dedicated teachers, a caring principal, an unbeatable secretary, and the coolest, most informed and ready group of sixth graders in Texas! #proudtobeaneagle#war#wearerogers#rhs2025#RISDsixthgradedreamteam
Waking from a troubled dream,
It's hard to tell the vision's seam
From the loose, wind-swept shreds
Of the many tattered threads
Of my life...
Of my life...
It seems that chaos runs amuck
When the paths of love get stuck
Within the silly, mindless glaze
Of selfish lusts and half-baked praise
In my life...
In my life...
Swimming daily through this stew
Threatens to undo the glue
Struggling to uphold the ties that bind me.
To think that I could ever find
Someone who would want my mind
Seems more a lie than lies seem to me.
What this means I can not tell,
For meanings shift within this cell
As I wage my private war
To prove I'm not a useless bore
In this life...
In this life...
I only know it never ends,
But rather blends as it rends
All the things I care about,
Twisting truth into doubt
Through this life...
Through this life...
Upon the Solid Rock I stand,
Waiting for the mighty hand
Sure to pierce the shadows that confound me.
Yet I feel so all alone,
As a seed left on the stone,
Life seems more a dream than dreams seem to me.
- Lyrics to the song "Fear" (www.godsfurryangels.com/fear), photo from the "God's Furry Angels" collection, all by Kirby Lee Davis! This intriguing tune may have more in common with "The Road to Renewal" (coming out this fall) than "God's Furry Angels" (which you hopefully have read once or twice since its February release), but we'll worry about that later.
Theres a reason why I don't adhere to rules well.
It might have to do with the rain, it might have to do with your face. It might have to do with the lion that crept up to the chicken coop and destroyed all the eggs.
It's not that I don't like you or that I don't respect the pattern or trend in which you like to follow.
It might just be that I like it when there's a little more wild to it. Something that feels a little bit bigger than all of us.
It's safe to say some of us have been to enough places to give you a daily wake up call on how blessed we are.
There are just parts of the world that are fucked.
There is more opportunity and more possibility for you to do what you want to do every single day here, as compared to anywhere else in another country.
Remember everyone deployed.
