When the Americans entered the war in 1917, there were severe shortages of all sorts of military equipment, including artillery. American factories were still gearing up, and could not provide guns quickly enough for the weapons-starved divisions going overseas. Luckily, the French could produce enough 75’s to equip both armies as well as provide ammunition and training facilities for the arriving Americans, who took an immediate liking to their new cannon. (Miskimon, Christopher 2016) Shortly after the end of WWI, the Great Depression of

Columbus and Lindbergh: A Journey Across The Atlantic Christopher Columbus and Charles Lindbergh both made astonishing accomplishments in their careers by crossing the Atlantic Ocean, one by boat, and one by plane. Columbus crossed the Atlantic by boat, and Lindbergh crossed the Atlantic by plane. Columbus had three ships, the Santa Maria, the Pinta, and the Nina. These two men crossed the Atlantic Ocean for a variety of different reasons with one objective, to do something no one has ever done before. Both Columbus and Lindbergh differ very much in their objective as well as their accomplishments.
He soon left for Korea, where he flew combat missions for the first time. Chappie received the Distinguished Service Medal during his service in the Korean War for heroically saving his partner and himself when his plane malfunctioned and blew up. In 1951, he returned to the US and was assigned to the Otis Air Force Base in Massachusetts as a jet fighter pilot.

He says that despite some losses to naval vessels at Dunkirk, there were more than enough resources within the Royal Navy to bring more ships in to fight the Nazis should it be necessary, and that despite how it may have looked, the British were actually in control of the aerial fighting throughout the battle, with still more aircrafts simply waiting in reserve. Of course, the British were not armed with the information that Prior is today, and could not have possibly been sure of success, which makes their triumph still more impressive. The Battle of Britain is considered by many to be the German’s first real defeat in WWII and despite the night raids during the blitz that killed up to 40,000 British civilians, is considered a major turning point in the
Even though, President Roosevelt approved the request of the African-American calls, some government officer still did not believe that African-American was fit to be a pilots. For instance, the only way African-American was allocate in WWII was to do experiment which was, “The former was a program formulated by the United States War Department to prove that black men were unfit to fly airplane (Homan an Reilly 12).” One of the experiment was to allow those men to take a physical and mental qualifications test before they could be accepted in the Air Forces. The need to be a pilot is that you must be “unmarried male citizen of the United States, between the ages of twenty and twenty-six, completed one-half credits required for a degree at a recognized college or universities; of excellent character, excellent health and there was no mention of color men (Holman and Reilly 20).” Furthermore, it was after two years training at the Tuskegee institute (now Tuskegee university) established by Booker Washington in 1881 graduated their first all-black Airmen. The first Airmen was ready to go to battle in 1943, many of them were send to Northern Africa knew as the 99th Pursuit Fighter
On January 11th, 1944, Franklin D. Roosevelt (FDR) gave the annual State of the Union Address, (SotU) which was professional and insightful, yet flawed. As most things go, FDR’s SotU Address was presented with faulty arguments; however convincing the arguments may have been. These are called fallacies. In a fallacy, you try to persuade a person to do something by giving an argument of an ethical, emotional, and/or logical nature with false evidence. An example can be shown here (taken directly from Address): “In two months, June and July, 1943, more than a thousand airplanes that could have been made and should have been made were not made.
Hitler had many successes in acquiring land prior to this military operation against the Soviets, and upon losing this battle it resulted in a downward spiral of losses for the Germans. It was this military failure of Hitler that paved the pathway for the allied success in World War
Just the casualties of Operation Barbarossa numbered 775 000, not counting soldiers that remained in Europe, which greatly outnumbers the Allies. No matter how much of a surprise Operation Overlord took the Nazis by due to the large difference in manpower and fighting force, Operation Overlord would never have led to the Allies victory. Therefore the Germans’ invasion of the soviet Union that caused them so many lives led to their defeat and the success of Operation
“At age 30, he first explored his engineering talents and went to work as a military engineer for 17 years in Milan. He studied and designed war instruments such as tanks, catapults, submarines, machine guns, and other weapons”(Sniderman, “Leonardo da Vinci”). While most men and women believed Leonardo to be crazy he is now seen as an exceptional inventor and genius. In Leonardo 's scientific studies, Leonardo found out that the range of motion of a bird and of a human was the same, and if a human had wings, he would be able to fly. Leonardo decided that he wanted to be a bird, so he could fly.
