With nothing but a bundle of dried bread and a change of clothes, the boy was in pursuit of his dream to become a real hero, whatever it took. An new kind of war had come to Russia Unlike any war humankind had seen before. A war of machines and airplanes… The first war of armored battleships and gigantic zeppelins… The first war of tanks and poison gas… This young boy…

    The haunting of Fort Monroe

    [♪techno beat♪] [♪drum beat♪] Welcome back. Fort Monroe is one of the oldest posts in America. It’s seen a lot of wars and been home to many famous folks, some of whom still wander around the post today. Crystal Park shows us how current residents are dealing with their lingering neighbors. Boo! >>Oh, my gosh! During the day Fort Monroe looks like an old historic post. Situated on the Chesapeake Bay and surrounded by a moat, the fort’s original mission was to protect the entrance to Hampton Roads and several other port cities in Virginia.

    North Korea vs United States – Updated (2018) – Military Comparison

    A lot has happened since we last compared the militaries of the USA and North Korea. President Donald Trump and North Korea’s Supreme Leader, Kim Jong Un, have been involved in spats that are both amusing and deeply worrying at the same time. Each leader has issued insults as well as threats. Kim Jong Un famously called Trump a “mentally deranged U.S. dotard”, while Trump later bragged about the size of his button when compared to his nemesis’ button. It all seems quite juvenile, but we might ask how big the threat of conflict really is. After North Korea was accused by the U.S. of being behind the WannaCry cyber-attacks,…

    Judas “The Hammer” – Greatest War Hero is History?

    It is the year 160 BC, and in Judea, a force of 24,000 Syrian invaders is being met by a band of only 3,000 Jewish defenders. Hopelessly outnumbered, the Jewish defenders know that they must make a stand here and hopefully buy time for the rest of their newly-independent nation to rise to arms. It is a grim choice, but one that must be made if the nation of Israel is to be free for the first time in almost 500 years. Leading the 3,000 Jewish soldiers is a man who has by now become a legend in his own right. Judas Maccabeus, the Hammer of Israel, knows that he…

    China vs Russia – Who Would Win? – Army / Military Comparison

    When the Infographics Show compiled our list of the world’s most powerful militaries, our research concluded that in no uncertain terms The United States of America was placed at the top. The next two spots on the list were taken-up by the countries of Russia and then China, with media and military analysts almost universally agreeing on this order. While Russia has been a notable military powerhouse for some time, China’s emergence as a military superpower has been more recent. The country experienced meteoric economic growth in the past half century after opening-up to global markets. Much of this new money has been invested on the country’s defense, with China’s…

    Army VS Military – How Do They Compare?

    Army, military, for thousands of years there was little if any difference between the two words, but with the rise of naval powers and then the adoption of flight into warfighting, a clear distinction was established between the two words. But when you get down to brass tacks, just what’s the difference between the two really? Hello and welcome to another episode of The Infographics Show- today we’re taking a look at army vs military- what’s the difference? As mentioned, for thousands of years there wasn’t much difference between the two words, and if english had existed back then, you could’ve probably used the two words interchangeably. That’s because for…

    Roman Military Technology and Tactics

    2000 years ago, the Roman army is the best equipped army in the world. While the architects have mastered the art of manipulating stone and concrete, military engineers have fashioned metal and wood to create devastating weapons of war. The Roman foot soldier’s main weapon is a fearsome sword called the Gladius, a double edged blade about 18 inches long with a sharp point. It was used for stabbing and thrusting, rather than slashing. But if a sword could be deadly at close quarters, their spear called a Pilum, could kill from a distance. It can be thrown with lethal accuracy around 100 feet. DR KATE GILLIVER: The Pilum is…
