GUNS AND THEIR HISTORY: HIROSHIMA

February 11, 2019
Posted by

On Monday, August 6, 1945, the Little Boy nuclear weapon was released on Hiroshima. Some military camps were in the vicinity, including the headquarters of the Fifth Division and those of the Second General Army of Field Marshal Hata Shunroku, who commanded the defense of the entire southern part of the country.

The Little Boy bomb was dropped at 08:15 a.m. and reached 55 seconds the height determined for its explosion, approximately 600 meters above the city. It is estimated that instantaneously the temperature rose to more than one million degrees Celsius, which burned the surrounding air, creating a ball of fire of 256 meters in diameter. In less than a second the ball expanded to 274 meters, the radius of total destruction was 1.6 kilometers, causing fires in 11.4 km².

Between 70,000 and 80,000 people, about 30% of the population of Hiroshima, died instantly, while another 70,000 were injured.

GUNS AND THEIR HISTORY: BATTLE OF EYLAU

February 7, 2019
Posted by

On the 7th and 8th, February 1807 the Battle of Eylau took place, between the forces of Napoleon I and the Russian army. 

After the battles of Austerlitz and Jena-Auerstädt, Napoleon occupied the German cities and marched eastward, entering Poland with little resistance. The battle began when the French forces moved forward to occupy the town of Eylau, where the Russian army was located. It quickly spread into a long and bitter confrontation that continued into the night.

At dawn there was almost no visibility and the dense storm clouds continued throughout the day. The enemy forces occupied two parallel crests, and shortly after 8:00 they began the artillery duel.

After 14 hours of continuous battle, the Russian army began to retreat stealthily, but the French did not realize it until 4 hours later and were not in a position to initiate the persecution. Technically, the French have gained possession of the battlefield, but they had suffered enormous losses and failed to destroy the Russian army.
