History.

I feel insane with curiosity. I've read several international journals, but I'm still curious because I can't observe directly. Does anyone know anything about the history of Myanmar? I want to ask a few things.

September 29, 1918 #OTD World War I: Battle of St. Quentin Canal, begins. Involving British, Australian and American forces operating as part of the British Fourth Army under the overall command of General Sir Henry Rawlinson. Further north, part of the British Third Army also supported the attack. South of the Fourth Army's 19 km (12 mi) front, the French First Army launched a coordinated attack on a 9.5 km (6 mi) front. The objective was to break through one of the most heavily defended stretches of the German Siegfriedstellung (Hindenburg Line), which in this sector utilised the St Quentin Canal as part of its defences. The assault achieved its objectives (though not according to the planned timetable), resulting in the first full breach of the Hindenburg Line, in the face of heavy German resistance. In concert with other attacks of the Grand Offensive along the length of the line, Allied success convinced the German high command that there was little hope of an ultimate German victory.

September 29, 1914 #OTD World War I: Siege of Antwerp German bombardments rendered several forts useless to defense, forcing the Belgian army to evacuate all wounded, non-combative men, prisoners of war, equipment and ammunition to Antwerp. Belgian Prime Minister Charles de Broqueville informed the British the Belgian field army of 65,000 men would withdraw to Ostend if the outer fortresses fell and leave a garrison of 80,000 troops to hold Antwerp for as long as possible. Pictured: Belgian artillery positions around Antwerp.

September 28, 1942 #OTD At a NHL meeting held in Toronto, Ontario, Canada league President Frank Calder announced that Madison Square Garden declined to renew the lease of the Brooklyn Americans, formerly the New York Americans, who shared the arena with the New York Rangers, causing the team to suspend operations. Americans’ owner Red Dutton had changed the city name of the team to “Brooklyn” the year prior in anticipation of moving the team there, and, in the promise of having a deal worked out, toiled to finance an arena in Brooklyn in the midst of World War II, while the team wasn’t in action. In 1946, he learned that his bid to move the team was denied, and the team officially folded.

September 28, 1942 #OTD World War II: Battle of Stalingrad In Stalingrad, Russia, Sergeant Jacob Pavlov and three others assaulted the much shelled apartment block facing Solechnaya street, expelling the incumbent Germans with hand-grenades. In the cellar they found several badly wounded Soviet soldiers still holding out. "Pavlov's House" would become a boundary fortification, and a symbol of resistance. The handful of men defended the outpost for 58 days, against infantry, artillery and tank assaults. Pictured: Soviet sergeant Jacob Pavlov (Left) and the apartment named Pavlov's House (Right).

On This Day in History - September 28, 1871

September 28, 1871 #OTD Pietro Badoglio, Italian general during both World Wars and the first viceroy of Italian East Africa. With the fall of the Fascist regime in Italy, he became Prime Minister of Italy. On 24 July 1943, as Italy had suffered several setbacks following the Allied invasion of Sicily in World War II, Mussolini summoned the Fascist Grand Council, which voted no confidence in Mussolini. The following day Il Duce was removed from government by King Victor Emmanuel III and arrested. On 3 September 1943, General Giuseppe Castellano signed the Italian armistice with the Allies in Cassibile on behalf of Badoglio, who was named Prime Minister of Italy. Wary of the potentially hostile German response to the Armistice, Badoglio hesitated to formally announce the treaty. On 8 September 1943, the armistice document was published by the Allies in the Badoglio Proclamation, before Badoglio could communicate news of the switch to the Italian armed forces. On 23 September 1943, the longer version of the armistice was signed in Malta. On 13 October, Badoglio and the Kingdom of Italy officially declared war on Germany. Badoglio continued to head the government for another nine months. (Died: 1956), was born on this day in Grazzano Monferrato, Piedmont, Kingdom of Italy.

Khan As'ad Pasha in Old Damascus

Khan As'ad Pasha is a captivating historical structure nestled in the heart of Damascus' Old City, #Syria. Its construction dates back to the 18th century during the reign of the Ottoman Empire, specifically in 1752-1753. Walking through its grand entrance, you're greeted by an awe-inspiring sense of history. This Khan had a noble purpose; it was built to offer refuge and storage for traders and caravans passing through Damascus on their bustling trade routes. It provided a secure haven for people and their precious merchandise. The architectural design of Khan As'ad Pasha is a sight to behold. Inside, you'll find a vast, open courtyard surrounded by graceful archways and rooms that were once used for accommodation and safeguarding goods. These stone arches and intricate decorations on the ceilings and walls add to its charm. Over the years, the Khan has been carefully preserved and lovingly restored. Today, it has transformed into a vibrant hub of arts, culture, and craftsmanship. Stepping inside, you might stumble upon exhibitions featuring the works of local and international artists, breathing new life into this historical gem. In essence, Khan As'ad Pasha is not just a building; it's a living testament to history and culture, an integral part of the cultural heritage of #Damascus and Syria that continues to captivate visitors with its timeless beauty.
