Sombre Boîte - 1956 Valle Chantecler typically more than 95% of a car's energy is used just to move itself, The Carless Class is defined by eliminating this old fashioned "car equation." Vehicles in The Carless Class still have a full fairing but often just 3 wheels, some have pedal and most have electric assist.
1956 Valle Chantecler- Proof that smart cars already existed!
1956 Valle Chantecler .. The correct method of transportation
1956 Valle Chantecler . . . this sort of thing was much more common in post-WWII Europe than here; people could only afford things like motorcycles and microcars. In the US, the Nash Metropolitan was about it, until VW invaded in the early Sixties with the Beetle.

The May 12,1944 mission to bomb the oil refineries at Brüx, Czechoslovakia and Zwickau proved to be a very costly one for the 8th Air Force's 3rd Air Division B-17s. They had dispatched 295 bombers to the two targets, Brüx (224) and Zwickau (74). The Luftwaffe picked this day to come up en-force and fight the lightly covered bombers, they only had one fighter group flying escort over the target (357th FG). When the German fighters were done with them, they had lost 41 bombers and 2 fighters.

U.K. Teddy Girl with Teddy Boys behind her, 1955 // Ken Russell. Mr. Russell created a series called 'The Last of the Teddy Girls' in London’s East End. The images are one of the first reportage series to be made of British youth culture, presenting pictures of working class girls in Neo-Edwardian dress, a fascinating counterpoint to their drape-coated, drainpipe-wearing male counterparts the Teddy Bo in a rare and unique glimpse of an under-documented subculture of austere post war Britain.

Massacres of POWs, Dutch East Indies, 1941-1942 Brutality was a daily event for the Japanese soldier. He had to admit brutality against himself by his officers. This treatment he simply gave further to his subordinates or the prisoners, the last because they were inferior to him after their surrender ...

WWII. Mass execution by the Japanese ... OUR BRAVE MEN, Stoic and Dignified in the Face of Cruel Inhumanity. How we conduct ourselves in battle and all the hours that surround the horrors of war provides great commentary about our personal warrior-hood!
