♣️♦️Info: A painting of German soldiers clearing out a trench with bayonets. GERMANY'S ROLE ON THE OUTBREAK OF WW1(part 2)- (read part 1) Ok taken into consideration all the factors from nations others than Germany, lets look at why Germany got engaged in the fighting. Germany or also known as Prussia at the time was a powerful nation, but they got a large part of their power from their technological superiority. An enemy of the Germans, Russia was far from being a technologically capable nation, but their massive amount of man power was increasing and with the construction of a new railway on the west of Russia the Germans predicted that Russia's man superiority could overcome Germany's technological superiority by 1917. They Germans also knew the French wanted their lost territory back and as such the Germans were not fond of fighting a war on two fronts. So the plan was to quickly wipe out the French army or at least capture their capital without to many losses and then turn their attention to Russia. This lead to the participation of Britain, since in order to surpass the strong french defences in the south the Germans needed to go trough the north, which was Belgium. Belgium was a neutral country and was covered by Britain's promise to declare war on Germany if they dared to attack there.... next part tomorrow, any questions⁉️ ask in the comments! 🍁🌾🍂Follow @WW1_Kaiserosterreich for more ✅

This is my happy place: The gunroom of my cousins grandfather, a WW2 veteran that fought in the eastern theater on Iwo Jima. He has guns, ammo, and equipment from as early to the civil war to Vietnam. What a joy and blessing to live in a land where we can preserve our history and guns on our very basement walls. Awesome.
A few pics from my stop gap on San Juan.
What a great city! Lots of culture and exciting places to visit. The fountain at the start of a sunset walk, Old San Juan for evening drinks, a morning at the beach and even did a mini beach clean! Don't forget to pick up your cigarette butts people!!
Glenanna, a most romantic name for a beautiful home in Floyd, Virginia. This gorgeous Greek Revival was built in 1849 by an Irish mason named Henry Dillon, for local grandee Dr Tazewell Headen. Headen's wife was Mary Stuart, sister to the dashing Confederate cavalry officer J.E.B. Stuart. The front porch, though suited to the house, was added in the 1910s- the columns were salvaged from a home in Atlanta and hauled by train and wagon to Floyd.
“What Minister Joe McHugh said made me see that Gaelic is not dying, rather it is growing in places such as America,” said recent MMI graduate and member of the Gaelic Club, Charles Lampman.
Today, the MMI Gaelic Club along with Dr. Rankin Sherling, had the pleasure of meeting with Minister Joe McHugh, a prominent Irish politician, who took time out of his busy schedule to meet with our cadets and encourage them to continue their studies of the Irish language and culture. Minister McHugh is a member of the Irish Prime Minister's Cabinet and is the Chief Party Whip. He made a special trip to Oideas Gael (the language college) specifically to meet with Dr. Sherling and the cadets after learning about their Irish program at MMI. #morethanamilitarycollege#studyaboard#language#history#culture#irish#irishamericans#gaelic#militarycollege#politics#travel
