A Middlesex Regiment street barricade, Spring 1918

Photograph of a Middlesex Regiment street barricade, Spring 1918. The grins on several soldiers faces hint that the fighting has not quite reached this street yet.From an album of 19 official photographs of the 1st, 1/7th, 16th, and the 25th Bns of the Middlesex Regiment, mainly associated with World War One, Western Front (1914-1918).On 21 March 1918 the Germans launched Operation MICHAEL. Around 10, 000 guns fired over a million shells in five hours against Lieutenant General Byng?s Third and General Gough?s Fifth Armies before 47 German divisions attacked. Using infiltration tactics the German storm troopers by-passed pockets of resistance and broke through the British trench system, leaving the following waves of troops to ?mop up? any resistance. In this image, soldiers of the Middlesex Regiment await the German attack. Date: 1918

China - Shanghai - Sino-Japanese incident 1937 (The Battle of Shanghai) - The Chinese position near a bridge over the creek on the Woosung Road in East Shanghai.

It was one of the largest and bloodiest battles of the entire war. As pictured on this card, Chinese soldiers had to rely primarily on small-caliber weapons in their defense of the city, against the overwhelming onslaught from air, naval, and ground forces of the Japanese.

The Paris revolution Featured Print

The Paris revolution

A barricade at the corner of the Boulevard Rue Mazagran in Paris, 1848. In France, the catalyst for the revolutions in the rest of Europe, the monarchy was replaced by the Second Republic, with Louis Napoleon as president from 1852. A series of revolts occurred in various parts of Europe against monarchical rule. Although some of the revolutionaries had republican ideas, many more were motivated by economic grievances. None of the revolutions enjoyed any lasting success, and most were violently suppressed within a few months. Date: 1848
