Jungleers on Biak by Keith Rocco COMMENT.jpg


“On May 27, 1944, the experienced veterans of the 41st Infantry Division, made up originally of National Guardsmen from Oregon, Washington, Idaho and Montana, landed unopposed on Biak. It was a feint: the 41st, which had earned its “Jungleer” nickname in New Guinea, was about to enter its toughest fight of World War II. Oregon’s 162nd and 186th Infantry were moving inland toward the airfields when the enemy struck. The 163rd Infantry (Montana) was quickly brought in to join the horrible jungle fighting, where despite the heat and steep terrain, water was rationed to one canteen every 24 hours.
“On June 15, I Corps commander LTG Robert Eichelberger assumed command, prompting a new plan of attack. On June 16th, the 2nd Battalion, 186th Infantry, attacked to close a gap between their regiment and the 162nd. The battalion overran dozens of machine gun nests, log bunkers, and even a naval gun, and opened the battle’s second phase when they discovered a second major cave system. These caves were not cleared until June 27th, and not until August 20th would the fight for Biak be declared over.”

…Manila Would Do  by Keith Rocco COMMENT.jpg


“The 37th Division landed at Lingayan Gulf, on the Philippine Island of Luzon, January 9, 1945, and after almost a month of fighting took part in the assault of Manila, entering the city on the 4th of February. The soldiers of the 37th Infantry Division secured the Old Bilbad Prison freeing 1330 civilian internees and military prisoners of war. They made an assault crossing of the Pasig River, cleared the Paco neighborhood, and reduced the Intramuros fortress. The Japanese fortified buildings with skill and the larger reinforced concrete buildings became major obstacles to the men of the 37th. Casualties mounted. The Japanese held not only the access to the buildings, but also fought from inside the buildings themselves, forcing the 37th to fight not only block by block or building by building, but floor by floor and room by room. This was the kind of fighting that placed a premium on good leadership at squad and platoon levels. Many junior officers and noncommissioned officers led by example.
“A squad leader in the 148th Infantry was the object of a bayonet charge by six Japanese soldiers who charged from approximately 30 yards away. Sergeant Billy E. Vinson warded off the first Japanese soldier’s bayonet thrust, then dispatched the assault group with one long burst from his Browning Automatic Rifle. He held his forward position until all wounded soldiers in the vicinitiy could be evacuated. After weeks of hard fighting, Manila was secured on the 2nd of March, 1945.”

Muslim didn't use a moon and star,insignia of Islam.But use David star of Jewish!?

Actually it is The Seal of Solomon (‎ Khātam Sulaymān) attributed to King Solomon in medieval Arabic tradition, from which it developed in Islamic and Jewish mysticism and in Western occultism. It is the predecessor of the Star of David, which became the symbol of the Jewish people in modern times.

For example this is Coin of Ayyubid Az-Zahir 1204, found in Aleppo.

Chrisians sometime call it The Star of Creation probably based on Aristotle's use of triangles in different positions to indicate the different basic elements. The superposed triangles thus represented combinations of those elements.

Hindus used it too as a symbol of perfect balance.

There is a theory that the sexagram(lat) or the hexagram(gr) originated from India but it is more likely that like other simple geometric shapes ( triangle, circle, square), the hexagram has been created by various peoples with no connection to one another and is due to the optics of human eye.
 
The Battle of Nancy was the final and decisive battle of the Burgundian Wars, fought outside the walls of Nancy on 5 January 1477 by Charles the Bold, Duke of Burgundy, against René II, Duke of Lorraine, and the Swiss Confederacy.
René's forces won the battle, and Charles' mutilated body was found three days later.

The Intervention of the Sabine Women - Jacques Louis 1799

The northern Brigade in the Division consisted of the 9th and 10th Kings Own Yorkshire Light Infantry (KOYLI) in the front line, with the 15th Bn Durham Light Infantry (DLI) and 1st Bn East Yorkshire Regiment in reserve.
Prior to Zero Hour (0730) the men from the KOYLI battalions crawled out into no man’s land in readiness for their assault. In front of them the German wire had been well cut by the week long artillery bombardment and both battalions made swift progress through the German’s front line trenches.

Within 30 minutes they had secured an area around the north of Fricourt village as far as the road to Contalmaison. Here they were held by machine gun fire coming from their front and flanks, and dug in.
To their left the 34th Division’s attempt at taking La Boisselle had been repulsed with enormous loss to its Tyneside Brigades. As the 34th Division attempted to remedy the situation the KOYLI found themselves in the unenviable situation of maintaining a position surrounded on three sides.
