    When it comes to war, you’d expect that the side with the biggest guns, most advanced technology and soldiers who look most like Chuck Norris would win, but history has shown time and time again that, that isn’t always the case. Nowhere was this more evident that WW2, when a plane made of wood became […]

    Captain Stephen Beattie may not have the longest Wikipedia page in naval history, or even the coolest name, but he sure as hell has one of the coolest stories from WW2. We are of course talking about the time he led what has gone down in history as “the greatest raid of all “.  Unless […]

    During WW2, the ever progressive Soviet Union made the decision to begin deploying female sharpshooters across the country out of the belief women were more cunning than men and hence would be better at shooting people in the dick from 800 yards away. One of these snipers was Roza Shanina who pretty much spent the […]

    There’s a persistent “fact” about earthworms that if you cut them in half, each half will go on to live a relatively normal, albeit shorter (ha!) life as an entirely new worm. While this isn’t true, there is a historic example of something almost identical happening with a boat called the HMS Porcupine. First launched […]

    Alan Turing is perhaps best known for being a pioneering expert in the fields of computer science, math and being a crazy eccentric asshole. In regards to the latter, nothing sums up Turing’s eccentricities more than what he did to his favourite mug to stop other people drinking out of it. When it comes to Alan […]

    It’s often said that war is the ultimate motivator for innovation. Judging by the M45 Quadmount, war is also a time for saying “fuck this, let’s see what happens when we glue all these things together”.  Just so we’re all clear here, the M45 Quadmount, which we’re only going to refer to by its unofficial nickname of […]

    During WW2 the weapon of choice for most US soldiers was the M1 Garand, a sturdy semi-automatic rifle capable of pumping 8 bullets into a person’s torso in half as many seconds.  For some reason though, the Japanese didn’t know that American troops had such a weapon and boy did American troops take advantage of that. […]

    Since the dawn of the powered flight the nature of aerial combat has changed dramatically to the point that it is virtually unrecognisable from how it looked during say, World War 2. For example, consider the Sonderkommando Elbe, a specialised task force formed in the closing months of the war by the Nazis whose sole mission was […]

    As one of the most decorated individuals to ever serve in the US military, Lieutenant General Lewis “Chesty” Puller is something of a legend amongst members of the Marine corps, with which he served for over 3 decades prior to retirement and death. Quite fittingly for a legend, many myths have sprung up about Puller’s combat prowess many of […]

    Hitler was a fucking asshole, we think we can all agree on that. But did you know back in 1941 when Marvel comics decided to show the literal personification of America punching Hitler right in his stupid face, people actually complained?  As you may or may not know depending on how much you know about […]

    Schadenfreude is a German word used to describe the feeling of glee or pleasure you get at the sight of someone else’s misfortune. It’s a word we’d like you to keep in mind as we tell you about how some heroic dumbass botched the execution of the Nazis sentenced to death at the Nuremberg trials.  […]

    We’re probably not breaking any new ground when we say, fuck Hitler. But we might be when we say that Wax Hitler is probably doesn’t deserve half the shit that’s happened to him over the years, because hell, he is just a dummy. Albeit one modelled after one of the most evil, hated men in […]

    Over the last few years we’ve occasionally discussed people and sometimes fictional characters who through their actions, words and lazily extended middle fingers to the establishment proved that they neither care or are capable of giving a fuck. Today we’re giving the same treatment to the people of WW2 era Britain, specifically those caught in the Blitz.  […]

    The Reichstag is a large impressive building located in Berlin that serves as a meeting place for the German parliament that also just so happens to be full of Soviet graffiti telling Hitler to eat a dick.  Though Hitler never actually set foot in the building during WW2 the building was nonetheless seen as being […]
