5.12.1952. Il Grande smog di Londra .
Il Grande smog è stata una catastrofe ambientale che colpì Londra nel dicembre 1952: una coltre di smog, nebbia densa e maleodorante, avvolse la capitale inglese dal 5 al 9 dicembre 1952. In un primo momento furono stimate circa 4.000 vittime ma in seguito a ricerche più recenti il numero salì considerevolmente fino a 12.000 persone, a cui si aggiunsero anche 100.000 malati in condizioni gravi .
La nebbia fu così spessa che la circolazione automobilistica divenne difficoltosa o addirittura impossibile; la gente camminava appoggiandosi ai muri e le autorità raccomandarono di tenere a casa i bambini per il rischio che potessero perdersi. Lo smog denso entrò perfino dentro gli edifici: scuole, concerti, rappresentazioni teatrali e proiezioni cinematografiche furono sospese poiché la scena o lo schermo non erano visibili al pubblico; gli aeroporti e la maggior parte dei trasporti pubblici non furono in grado di operare in quelle condizioni e l'esterno degli edifici di tutta la città fu contaminato da particolato carbonioso .
Il Grande smog è passato alla Storia come il peggior evento d'inquinamento atmosferico nella storia del Regno Unito .
Sepanjang sejarah dunia berbagai konflik bersenjata sudah terjadi. Beberapa terjadi sangat lama hingga bertahun-tahun tetapi ada juga konflik bersenjata yang hanya berlangsung dalam hitungan hari, bahkan menit.

SIAPA SIHH YANG GAK TAU U-BOOT?? Inilah mesin perang kebanggaan "Kriegsmarine" pada saat PDII dan berhasil menjadi mesin pembunuh yang efektif.
Kali ini mimin akan bercerita tentang U-47, salah satu U-Boot dengan pengalaman tempur yang tercatat dengan baik.
U-47 merupakan U-Boot tipe VIIB yang dibuat pada 25 Februari 1938 dan dikomandani oleh Korvettenkapitän Günther Prien. Pada malam hari tanggal 13-14 Oktober 1939, ia membawa U-47 menuju sarang musuh yaitu pangkalan armada kapal perang AL Inggris di Scapa Flow, Orkney yang sangat amat ketat dan hampir mustahil dilewati oleh U-Boot.
Bukan Prien namanya kalau menyerah dengan tantangan tersebut, begitu ada di titik yang pas, Prien memerintahkan awak kapal untuk melontarkan torpedo ke Battleship HMS Royal Oak. Bhamm!! akibat hantaman beberapa torpedo, HMS Royal Oak tenggelam dalam waktu 15 menit. Sekitar 24 Perwira AL Inggris dan 800 awak kapal gugur bersama Battleship itu.
Kriegsmarine menyatakan U-47 hilang beserta seluruh awaknya pada minggu awal Maret 1941. Semula U-47 dianggap tenggelam akibat Destroyer Inggris "HMS Wolverine". Namun hasil studi sejarah membuktikan bahwa itu bukan U-47, melainkan U-Boot lain. Alhasil nasib U-47 beserta seluruh awaknya termasuk sang-komandan masih menjadi teka-teki sampai sekarang.
ps: Bahkan ada yang bilang kalau U-47 selamat dan seluruh awak kabur bersama-sama, ada juga yang bilang mereka selamat tapi meninggal di kamp tawanan inggris.
Adrian Smith and I collaborated on various graphic novel projects, and this one, Malta, alas, came to nothing.
Here we see a couple of infested zombies on a motorcycle and sidecar. (In my script for the comic, I wrote for this page: first few cells reminiscent of the scene in Lawrence of Arabia where Omar Sharif, on his camel, takes an interminable time to reach the foreground). Our heroes have a fight with the zombies and win. The Janitor manages to communicate to our heroes that he wants to get to the coast. They drive there through the desert in their beat-up Fiat Toppolino and arrive at Tobruk where Allied forces are in a battle with Rommel’s zombie Germans. Through the mayhem, our heroes manage to commandeer a U-Boat and set off for Malta. Meanwhile, in Sicily, Field Marshal Kesselring has lost touch with Rommel's forces and knows that something is going on in Malta that he doesn't understand. He decides to put Operation Herkules into operation—the invasion of Malta. Our heroes arrive in the middle of this invasion, as the Axis forces try to overcome the zombie islanders. Our heroes reach the church, where the Janitor closes the dimensional breach. Cut off from their source, the alien infestation dies.
Somewhat of a B-Movie, I think you’ll agree. @adriansmithartist#adriansmithartist#adriansmithart#Malta#worldwar#worldwartwo#worldwar2#sciencefiction#sciencefictionmovie#scifi#nazi#zombie#zombies#graphicnovel#comics#RPintoWriter
Adrian Smith and I collaborated on various graphic novel projects. and this one, Malta, alas, came to nothing. Adrian wanted something with “Nazi zombies” and so I concocted a weird story involving a zombie infestation caused by an alien incursion that occurs on Malta during World War Two.
Here we see a man running from a German Luftwaffe bombing into a church. A German aircraft is shot down and crashes into the church. killing everyone. A dimensional breach opens, and maggot-like aliens come through and infest the dead, who begin to rise. The island is quickly overrun. A consignment of spitfires arrive, and their pilots are taken over. Flights from Malta drop host corpses onto a convoy of Axis merchantman, taking them over. The merchantmen arrive in Tripoli and crash into the quays. Axis personnel overrun the wrecked ships and are, in turn, infested by the aliens. The infestation spreads along Rommel’s supply line and reach his forces at Gazala and overwhelm them… @adriansmithartist#adriansmithartist#adriansmithart#Malta#worldwar#worldwartwo#worldwar2#sciencefiction#sciencefictionmovie#scifi#nazi#zombie#zombies#graphicnovel#comics#RPintoWriter
Winter is upon us in Norway and it is cold, dark and wet. This is the ideal time to review a lot of the work I have done during the year, but more importantly to make a plan for 2020. I usually give myself about 5-6 months for preparation for one larger journey and for next year this trip will be in Norway. A 2000 km journey where I will be able to explore locations that have been on my list for many years and will include Norwegian pre-war fortifications, both coastal batteries and inland forts facing the Swedish border. I will visit many of the large and small coastal batteries constructed during the German occupation and lastly, some previously top-secret facilities built as tensions between the east and west were at its highest during the cold war. I am already well on my way in picking the most interesting sites to visit and have just started with the in-depth research, meaning the mailman keep dropping books in my mailbox, which I love! More on that later.
For now, I share with you a shot of the German M157 fire control post at Hasselvika. Probably among the best-preserved bunker in the region which now houses the Hysnes military museum. A remarkably detailed look at how the Norwegian crew lived and worked in the command post, for one of the coastal batteries protecting the Norwegian fjords in fear of Soviet violation of the Norwegian borders. The museum is open on Sundays in the summer months and I highly recommend visiting if you live nearby or plan to visit Trondheim in 2020. The hosts are fantastic and know a lot about the period when the fort was in use and have put their hearts into making the museum and they even serve you coffee and usually home-made cake

My (near mint) German mother's cross in bronze,
The Cross of Honor of the German Mother (a.k.a. Mother’s Cross) was an award of the Nazi Regime. It was instituted on December 16, 1938, as part of Adolph Hitler’s initiative to encourage the growth of the Aryan population. Only women of German origin qualified for this award which was given annually on the second Sunday in May (Mother’s Day). Mothers were honored in three different classifications depending on the number of children they had borne. Eight or more children would entitle the woman to a gold cross, six or seven for silver, and four or five for bronze. The obverse design of the Mother’s Cross depicts a round shield affixed to a cross bearing the inscription “Der Deutchen Mutter” encircling a black enamel swastika on a white enamel field. The cross is in blue enamel with white enamel edges. The reverse features an engraved date of December 16, 1938, along with a facsimile signature of Germany’s infamous Fuhrer. #german#worldwar2#mothersday#mothercross#honor#relics#history#worldwar#historyww2#historyhunters#medal#cross#1938#ww2collections#ww2#waffenss#whermacht#germany#mother

I made some models about the battle of Stalingrad as it has always interested me even before I started my history studies.
Most of these MOCs are related to historical sources but also on the depictions of Red Orchestra II. I found out that they really researched for their game so I found there interpretation of maps like (Red October Factory, Apartments, Fallen Fighters etc.) really fitting my imagination of how to transcribe these places and actions into LEGO bricks.
So let's start with some MOCs of the apartment area in the northern part of the City. Most of the actions in that area took place during mid September until start of October 1942.
The third one:
The 3rd MOC I transcribed a situation where we can see a whole heavily shattered apartment building. It's based on some rare (mostly) German propaganda photo/video material and the houses relate very much to the RO2 Map apartments. This time it's actually a transcription of something there really is on the map. I liked it that much so I wanted it to do it with (virtual) LEGO bricks. On the other side with our available sources it's tough to do even more research on these places.
The whole thing including interior took me about 48 hours but I really like how it turned out.
