French trench raider in a gas-mask posing for a photograph with a revolver and dagger, late 1915. . Colourised by @histoiresdenosaieux . . Today 106 years ago, on September 25, 1915, the Second Battle of Champagne began on the Western Front. . In 1915, the Allies enjoyed a numerical superiority in troops on the Western Front. Seeking to exploit this and decisively break the trench stalemate, ejecting the Germans from France, the Allies planned offensives along the front. . The main assault would be launched in Champagne by the French, who would also attack further north in Artois, being supported by a British assault at Loos-en-Gohelle, also in Artois. . On September 21, 1915, the French began a 4-day-long artillery bombardment of the German trenches in Champagne. The Germans had anticipated the French assault, having been able to watch the French preparations from their high ground in Champagne and Artois. Though the French artillery still broke the German defenses in several places. . On September 25, 1915, the French Infantry attacked in Champagne and Artois. The British also attacked at Loos on the same day. Despite heavy rains, the French advanced and managed to take 14,000 prisoners before being halted. . But the French suffered staggering casualties themselves to German machine-guns and artillery, suffering a mind-boggling 23,567 combined deaths in Champagne and Artois on September 25. . The next day on September 26, the French renewed their assault and met stiffened German resistance, encountering lines of barbed wire not destroyed by artillery. . On September 27, the French captured some positions and managed to take 2,000 prisoners, but failed to break through the German lines. German reinforcements arrived, and counter-attacks regained some lost ground. . On October 1, the French suspended the offensive for the time being, as they'd expended their ammunition and had suffered staggering losses. It was clear that a breakthrough in Champagne was unrealistic. ⬇️CONTINUED BELOW⬇️ . #Frenchhistory #guerre #worldwar1 #wwi #ww1 #history #France #firstworldwar #worldwar #wwii #ww2 #worldwar2 #thegreatwar #historia #histoire #histoiredefrance #worldwarone

Hace un año… #undíacomohoy 25 de #septiembre pero de 1935 nacía en Essex la enfermera, música y escritora, JENNIFER WORTH. • Después de estudiar taquigrafía y mecanografía, trabajó como secretaría en una escuela de gramática de Amersham. Sin embargo, terminó decidiendo que quería ser enfermera. Finalmente, se hizo comadrona en Londres. Durante los años 50 ayudó a los más afectados por los bombardeos de la II Guerra Mundial en colaboración con las monjas anglicanas. Se casó en 1963 y tuvo dos hijas. Tras esto continuó trabajando como comadrona hasta 1973. Pero a partir de este año se dedicó a su otra gran pasión: la música Tras licenciarse en el London College of Music se dedicó a dar clases de piano y canto y a dar conciertos tanto como solista como con coros. Pero fue en 2002 cuando publicó su primera novela (de una trilogía): Call the Midwife en la que inmortalizó sus experiencias como comadrona durante los momentos más críticos de la Inglaterra de mediados del siglo XX. Un año antes de morir aún escribió In the Midst of Life, un texto relacionado con su última experiencia con la enfermedad terminal que terminó con su vida el 31 de mayo de 2011. #taldíacomohoy #taldiacomohoy #undiacomohoy #onthisday #onthisdayinhistory #september #repost #feminism #feminismo #feminist #feminista #women #mujeres #woman #mujer #history #historia
