I've been on a WW2 bender lately, reading a couple books in a row on the Pacific campaign. Even subscribed to HBO temporarily for the "Pacific" series that is on Sunday nights. I hate television but am a sucker for ten hour war epics and this one is no let down. Last week I saw a link on facebook to this photo collection and was stoked to find so many amazing images. Being an old Marine Corps tanker, it gets me pumped to see the tank pics especially. This is the ultimate marriage of death-dealing and machinery. The airplanes are easy to love, but tanks are just so much more filthy and a team effort at all times. Mobility, Shock, Firepower - forever. No wonder these guys came back and felt like cutting up motorcycles and raising hell.
