This commences the movie's most muddled action, in which Spider-Man is technologically granted heat-vision, super-hearing, assorted drones and tracking devices, and, of all things, a parachute. At their best, these augmentations refer cleverly to the hero's pulpy past (as with some little webbed wings) or provide nonsensical visual fun (finally, a technological explanation for the masked hero's expressive eyes). But they're usually at their worst, with Spidey interacting incessantly with the same kind of artificial-intelligence assistant Iron Man has in his suit.

Moore took command of the British forces in the Iberian peninsula following the recall of Harry Burrard of Lymington (1 June 1755 –17 October 1813), Hew Dalrymple (1750–1830), Governor of Gibraltar from November 1806 to August 1808, and Arthur Wellesley (1769–1852), later Duke of Wellington , who all faced an inquiry over the Convention of Cintra on the French troops' evacuation from Portugal . When Napoleon arrived in Spain with 200,000 men, Moore drew the French northwards while retreating to his embarkation ports of A Coruña and Vigo . Moore established a defensive position on hills outside the town, while being guarded by the 15th Hussars , and was fatally wounded at the Battle of Corunna , being "struck in his left breast and shoulder by a cannon shot, which broke his ribs, his arm, lacerated his shoulder and the whole of his left side and lungs". [6] He remained conscious, and composed, throughout the several hours. Like Lord Nelson he was mortally wounded in battle, surviving long enough to be assured that he had gained a victory. He said to his old friend Colonel Anderson "You know I always wished to die this way, I hope the people of England will be satisfied! I hope my country will do me justice!". [7] He asked Colonel Anderson to speak to his friends and mother but became too emotional to continue, and changed the subject. [7] [b] He asked if his staff were safe and was assured that they were, [c] and where his will could be found. Casting his eyes around the room he spied Charles Banks Stanhope and asked him "Remember me to your sister, Stanhope". [8] [d] He was then silent and died shortly afterwards. [10]

A Message from General Oliver
This is the story of the Fifth Armored Division; the division which led in the drive that created the Falaise pocket, which was the first of all the Allied units to set foot on German soil and to pierce the Siegfried Line, which in the closing days of the war went out a hundred miles in front of the supporting infantry and fought its way to the Elbe River, closer to Berlin than any other Allied unit, and which was stopped there, not by the Germans, but by order from Ninth Army. Necessarily there can be mentioned in this story only a few of the many acts of heroism which made this record possible. The long months of training for the task ahead, the drudgery, the endurance of cold and wet and fatigue, that contributed to this record could not possibly be adequately portrayed. To have participated with you, men of the Fifth Armored Division, in all these things has been the greatest privilege of my life.

It is my hope that in the years to come the same spirit which drove you onward to your achievements in this war will cause you to take the lead in your communities in doing everything possible to make our country a better place in which to live, and to improve our international relations and prevent future wars, so that our heroic dead shall not have died in vain.

[] Chapter I
A Star Is Born
It Was 1 October 1941.
On Europe's Eastern Front Wehrmacht forces under Field Marshal Gerd von Runstedt broke through the Red Army's primary defenses as the Germans concluded the first week of their offensive against the Crimea. North and east of Dniepropetrovsk, on the line toward the industrial Donets River basin, German armored divisions captured several Russian batteries, destroyed 45 of their tanks and encircled four Soviet infantry divisions.

In England inhabitants of Newcastle dug the dead and wounded from the rubble of the still smoldering buildings that has been crushed and burned by a devastating Luftwaffe attack during the previous night.

On the red clay wasteland of Kentucky's Fort Knox, far from all this clash and smoke of battle, a group of soldiers lined up and came to attention. Some were regular U. S. Army men, others 12-month selectees, others active-duty reserve officers. They had been gathering here in tent city all during the previous month of September. Now their numbers were sufficiently great officially to form the nucleus of an army division.

This was activation day of the Fifth Armored Division. Appointed to command the new group was an officer from the Armored Force Replacement Center. He was Brig. Gen. Jack W. Heard (later promoted to Major General).

In his address to these assembled soldiers General Heard declared that this division would have a brilliant future. It seemed a rather rash and optimistic prediction. For if this division ever did come to grips with the enemy its battle opponents would be these Wehrmacht units which even then were already battle-seasoned and were winning brilliant engagements on the Eastern Front. Certainly it would be an exceptional accomplishment if this Fifth Armored Division even succeeded in holding its ground in any future encounter with any one of these German units.


But the Fifth Armored Division was destined to have a brilliant future. It was destined to meet these crack German panzer divisions in battle, and it would smash them. It was destined to carve out, on Europe's battlefields, one of the most brilliant combat records of any U. S. division in World War II. These are some of the battle laurels which the Fifth Armored wears:

It lead the encircling movement in France which swung in back of the German Seventh Army and snapped shut the trap on this enemy force at the Falaise Gap;

It was the first division to reach the Seine River;
It was one of the first divisions to enter Belgium;
It was the first division to reach Luxembourg;
It was the first division to fight on German soil;
It was the first division to plunge through the Siegfried Line;
It was the American division, which, after the thrust across the German heartland, lay closest to Berlin; it was halted on the west bank of the Elbe River, 45 miles from the enemy capital, not by the Germans but by orders from SHAEF.

And although it amassed this impressive record of combat accomplishments, the Fifth Armored came through the war with a casualty rate that was among the lowest of all U. S. battle-scarred divisions. This attests to the speed and efficiency with which it executed its assigned missions; the excellence of its staff work and the hardiness of its soldiers. It also attests the genius of its leader, Major General Lunsford E. Oliver, who, two years after the close of hostilities, was to be told by his officers and men that "no division had a more beloved leader."

But it also has been the fate of the Fifth Armored to have its deeds little known. Because it was always in the vanguard, the division's identity was kept well concealed under such anonymous tags as: "Patton's ghost troops," or "First Army armored wedge," or "Ninth Army spearhead." And when much later the layers of censorship were finally rolled back and announcement was made of the division's 'accomplishments, the headlines were busy with much more immediate events. Therefore, this story is told so that others may know and Fifth Armored veterans may not soon forget.


Chapter II
What's In A Name
Fort Knox
1 October 1941--10 February 1942 Just as Wellington traced the successes of British troops to the playing fields of Eton, the Fifth Armored's victories in Europe had their roots in the sands of the Mojave, the mud of Tennessee and the snows of upstate New York. It was a difficult and torturous path which the division had to follow before it reached the field of battle. It spent 34 months and traveled thousands of miles preparing to meet the enemy.

The first four months of the division's life were spent at its birthplace, Ft. Knox. Here, too, it was given its name even before it was formally activated. On 10 September 1941 it was decided to call the Fifth Armored the "Victory Division." It was a name which proved to be exceptionally appropriate, for three years and one day after it was adopted, the division led the victorious Allied ground forces into Germany.

The name was suggested by Pvt. Sidney Huttner, Battery B, 58 th Field Artillery Bn. (armd). In an explanatory piece which he submitted with the suggested name, Pvt. Huttner pointed out that the Roman numeral equivalent for the Fifth Armored was V and that this symbol was then being used by the peoples of Europe's Nazi-occupied countries to express their faith in the ultimate victory over the enemy. Pvt. Huttner wrote this piece on 7 September 1941 while en route to Ft. Knox. For his effort he was rewarded with a furlough.

Members of the fledgling division began knuckling down to the grim and monotonous and sometimes interesting business of learning how to fight a war. There were hundreds of individual jobs that had to be learned, everything from cooking to taking apart tank motors. There was the ever-present close order drill with its annoying insistence on complete uniformity of dress. And there


were dirty jobs to be done: washing dishes, cleaning latrines, loading trucks, firing stoves, hauling ashes.

On 10 October 1941 the division received its first medium tanks when five N-3's were driven into the 81st motor park.

On 27 October it was assigned its first mission: to guard the gold bullion deposited in vaults at Ft. Knox by the U. S. government. The initial alert platoon given the job came from the 85th Reconnaissance Battalion and was commanded by 1st Lt. John P. Gerald, later, as a Major, killed in action near the German border.

On 11 November the division made its first public appearance when artillery, infantry and engineer units paraded with other Ft. Knox units through the streets of Louisville in an Armistice Day celebration .

When the declaration of war on Germany came 11 December 1941 the training pace was quickened. And plans were rushed to move the division to its new station, Camp Cooke, California.

Originally the Fifth Armored had been activated as a heavy armored division. It consisted of three tank regiments, a brigade headquarters, an artillery regiment, an artillery battalion, an infantry regiment, a reconnaissance battalion and an engineer battalion.

But on 1 January 1942 the division's organization was completely revamped. Of the original three tank regiments, 81st (medium tanks), 34th (light tanks), and 31st (light tanks), it was decided to inactivate the 31st; the other two regiments dropped their light and medium designations and instead each was given one light tank battalion, and two "medium" battalions. No "heavy" tanks were seen throughout the war.

The 46th Armored Infantry Regiment, which originally had two battalions, was assigned another. The division's brigade headquarters gave way to two combat command headquarters.

Other units inactivated were the 21st Ordnance and 19 th Quartermaster Battalion. In their place appeared the Maintenance Battalion, Supply Battalion and Train Headquarters and Headquarters Co.

The 65th Field Artillery Regiment was changed to a battalion and the 95th Artillery Battalion was formed. The 58th Artillery


Battalion remained unchanged. The 85th Reconnaissance and 22nd Engineer Battalions also remained unchanged.

After the reshuffling had been completed, the division settled down for another cold month of training. Then in the second week of February orders went out for the Fifth Armored members to pack up their equipment. With their horseshoe rolls on their backs they marched off to the railroad station. But not everyone went west. Just as the Fifth had been formed from cadres supplied by the Third and Fourth Armored Divisions, it left behind a cadre for the Eighth Armored Division.

As the California-bound train pulled away from the red clay wasteland there were few regrets among the Fifth Armored men. Behind them they left some medium and old "Mae West" light tanks, the mud, the tents, the stoves, and the fire shovels.

The Fifth Armored's first Chief of Staff at Ft. Knox was Col. John B. Wogan; he later became a major general and commanded the 13th Armored Division.

Brigade Commander at Ft. Knox was Brig. Gen. John S. Wood, who joined the division on 1 December 1941.

First commanders of the 81st and 34th were Col. Vernon Evans and Col. Robert W. Grow, respectively; both became major generals later in the war.

First commander of the 31st were first Col. Guy W. Chipman and Col. Sereno E. Brett.

First commander of the 46th was Lt. Col. John H. Ringe; Col. Floyd W. Waltz arrived late in January and took the regiment to Camp Cooke.

First commander of the 65th was Lt. Col. J. J. B. Williams; Lt. Col. Harold W. Blakely assumed command on 18 October.

First commander of the 58th was Major John G. Howard; Lt. Col. Samuel V. Krauthoff was first commander of the 95th.

First commanders of the 85th and 22nd were Lt. Col. Frank A. Alien, Jr., and Major Reginald L. Dean, respectively.


Chapter III
Between The Flower Beds And The Sea
Camp Cooke, California
15 February 1942--1 August 1942 CAMP COOKE, CALIFORNIA, is literally a garden spot. It borders the multicolored Lompoc and Santa Maria Valleys, which are the greatest flower seed-growing areas in the United States. But actually the camp is no bed of roses.

Located high above these valleys on a mesa that juts out into the Pacific, the military reservation is swept by high winds and frequently is engulfed in blankets of dripping fog. While its colorful neighboring valleys glow with rows of sweet peas, larkspur, nasturtiums, zinnias and other blooms, the camp's uncleared areas are covered with sage brush. Where this brush has been cut away the surface is either sand or cream-colored diatomaceous earth. There are also rows of tall stately eucalyptus trees, which were planted when the reservation was still a ranch to shield it from some of the winds off the sea.

The camp's military structures are set back about a mile from the reservation's eight-mile coast line. These buildings were all new when the Fifth Armored made its home here in February. The veterans of Ft. Knox's Tent City were happy to find oil-heated barracks, modern kitchens and elaborate motor parks.

Very interesting stuff! I’m definitely in the artistic and investigative categories and it’s great to see what work environments will be compatable with my personality!

Thank you so much for doing this interview.
As a fellow unbeliever who chose truth over belief at all costs, it’s nice to hear someone who went through similar feelings. It’s a lonely road I’ve started just a few months ago. It’s cost me my marriage.
