Strange Meeting by Wilfred Owen

Wilfred Owen Strange Meeting
by Wilfred Owen


It seemed that out of battle I escaped
Down some profound dull tunnel, long since scooped
Through granites which titanic wars had groined.


Yet also there encumbered sleepers groaned,
Too fast in thought or death to be bestirred.
Then ,as…

Knights of the Air - Learning to fly

If volunteers for air service were plentiful when war broke out, training facilities were not. Building on the few existing flying schools, the belligerents created dozens of new ones, refined training methods and found experienced pilots - including some brought home from battle - to teach the recruits. Students learned everything from plane construction to difficult tricks of flying, including looping, rolling, spinning and the climbing turn called a chandelle. And they were introduced to…

Words as Weapons: German Progranda Grenade

Through psychological warfare from antiquity to the modern age, military leaders have used words and images to leverage myths, fear and hopes to influence their enemies.



During the Second World War propaganda both in radio and printed forms reached their cultural pinnacles. And it was in Germany where tactical level psywar was dispensed at the end of a gun.



Rifle launched grenades were used in numbers by both Allied and Axis forces during World War II. They took… Continue

Star Wars producer rolls into horror with Panzer 88

Gary Kurtz, the producer of the first two "Star Wars" films and the man who walked away from the franchise in 1980, is not the excitable type. He speaks in even tones and pragmatic terms, but there was a clear tinge of eager energy in his voice when he sat down recently to discuss "Panzer 88," his first foray into effects-heavy feature films since the 1980s.…

Time for some dieselpunk poetry

Just a small poem about pirate sub on russian.



Холодный ветер, безмятежность льдин,

Луны незаживающая рана

И бронзовые иглы субмарин

Ласкают черный бархат океана.



Оставив за спиной тяжелый джин,

Холодный джаз, отчаянье глухое

В безмолвных измерениях глубин

Скользят сквозь тьму злодеи и герои



Идет игра; они напряжены,

Они - художники и ювелиры,

И разрывает кокон тишины

Удар торпеды, как укол рапиры.



"Вперед!" Горят глаза… Continue

Tales of Future Past by David Zondy

Tales of Future Past by David Zondy It wasn't that long ago that we had a future.



I mean, we have one now; the world isn't going to crash into the Sun or anything like that. What I mean is that we had a future that we could clearly imagine. The future wasn't tomorrow, next week, next year, or next century. It was a place with a form, a structure, a style.



True, we didn't know exactly… Continue
