Russian guide to taking out a Elefant( Elephant )/Ferdinand Tank Destroyers. I like how it shows the different rounds penetration and where. Note: not many shells were able to go through the 200mm thick armor plates on the front.

One of the things i love about taking inspiration from #antiquities is learning about the #civilisation that created it!
I knew nothing about the #phoenecian culture that made the glass bead of a #bearded man I based this #design on, so it was fascinating doing the write-up for my #redbubble store :) Fond out more using the store link in my bio :) #antique #ancient #phoenecia #beard #stylised #artifact #artistsoninstagram #artistsofinstagram #handdrawn #art #history #historical #historygeek #historynerd

To market to market......... The market pictured here is the livestock market and slaughterhouse that operated on North Terrace until the 1920s. It is approximately where the new Royal Adelaide Hospital stands. It is also believed the ‘The butcher’, a South Australian beer measure, may have come into use at the Newmarket Hotel which was opposite the market as a possible nod to the butchers working at the market.

About time for a reread methinks... My favourite book. This is my second copy...I have a fancy hardcover copy and this ratty paperback which I've read a bunch! I absolutely love the cover art of the painting by John Everett Millais of the Pre-Raphaelite brotherhood. #artnerd #historynerd #janeeyre #rochesterandjane #charlottebronte #johneverettmillais #lizziesiddal #ophelia #dantegabrielrossetti #williamholmanhunt #effiegray #victorianart #preraphaelitebrotherhood #artisticmovement #dangerousromantics #artisticinspiration #greatartists #artists

Just before more people ask me if they understand Russian in Romania: Roman origin. Romance language. Romulus and Remus and the Roman wolf in the middle of the old city. Not all post-communists are created equal - not even in Eastern Europe.
No offense to those who asked though, I still love you all.

On September 22, 1950 the X Corps' 1st Marine Division began to enter the outskirts and city limits of the South Korean capital of Seoul, one week after coming ashore at Inchon, officially beginning the campaign to retake the city from the North Koreans. An official attack against the city proper wouldn't be launched until September 25th. Strenuous and exhausting house-to-house fighting would keep the battle raging until the 27th at the latest, and by the end of it much of the city was a burning wreck. | For a full rundown on the fight for Seoul, check out my series: #BattleOfSeoulSeries.

Snapshots from Seoul, late September 1950. Seoul's population by 1950 was about a million people. Though most fled in the face of the invasion during the summer, tens of thousands still remained by the beginning of autumn. As the 1st Marine Division pushed towards the city after Inchon, Col. Lewis "Chesty" Puller, renowned veteran of World War II, then commanding the 1st Marine Regiment, predicted that the North Koreans would defend Seoul in such a fashion that would force the Marines to have no choice but to destroy it in order to liberate it. As fate would have it, Puller was correct. Reginald Thompson, a British war correspondent with the Marines, despairingly remarked: "Few people can have suffered so terrible a liberation."

What in the name of Zeus’ beard does Michelangelo have to do with The New Cavalier Reading Society?
Everything, in a way.
This is how Michelangelo and you—and The New Cavalier Reading Society—shall come to know one another:

In week 10 of the first semester you’ll read a passage from renowned art historian Kenneth Clarke arguing that Michelangelo was the most heroic of all the Renaissance artists.
This is AFTER (of course) reading some writing advice from Nabokov and discussing Verdi’s naiveté and memorising the inscription from Donatello’s statue of Judith but it’s BEFORE reading Chateaubriand’s epitaph on the ancien regime and digesting all the best bits from Byron’s Childe Harold’s Pilgrimage — a young poet’s reflections while travelling through Europe.

THEN in week 1 of the second semester, you’ll actually OWN this part of Michelangelo’s Last Judgment, as it features on page 13 of Volume 2 of your text book—which you get for free—right beside a quotation from Ruskin: ‘No man ever despised colour who could produce it.’

We have a French explorer’s assertion that Angkor Wat MUST have been erected by some ancient Eastern Michelangelo, and we have an assertion that Michelangelo’s greatness rose out of his connection with “that ancient religious root, in which to abide was life, from which to be severed was annihilation.”
And at last, in week 9 of Semester 2 we find out that Michelangelo took revenge on the Papal official who most vehemently opposed his Last Judgment by painting that man onto the wall of the Sistine Chapel with his doodle in a snake’s mouth. —
THAT, is what Michelangelo has to do with The New Cavalier Reading Society.
See? A very great deal.

The New Cavalier Reading Society is 2 semesters of the best that has ever been written, said, or done (or painted)—with a novelist as your tutor.

Enrolment opens this week.
Let’s renaissance the f*£&ing Renaissance!
