🇬🇧 Edith Cavell, an English nurse working in German occupied Belgium during WWI. In 1914 and 1915 she helped sneak 200 British and French soldiers to safety into neutral Holland. She was eventually arrested by the Germans, charged with treason and convicted by a German military court. She was executed by firing squad on October 12, 1915 despite international pleas for mercy. #wwi #ww1 #history #war

Currently reading this 650 pg. monster from Thomas Childers and @simonbooks I have read many general histories of Nazi Germany and while my favorite will always be “Rise and Fall of the Third Reich” I would consider Mr. Childers book to be essential reading for WW2 enthusiasts. It’s a well written and researched book. Check it out, you will not be disappointed. @history_in_five #history #ww2 #wwii #germany #war

The Japanese fleet carrier Zuikaku was the last of the six carriers that attacked Pearl Harbor to be sunk. She was also the first Japanese fleet carrier to be sunk by carrier born aircraft launched torpedos, all others had been sunk by dive bombers or submarines. Over 800 of her crew were lost and another 800 were rescued by other IJN ships.
