German soldiers with what I’ve been told is the Flammenwerfer 41. There were different models through World War II; 35, 40, 41 and 43 variants. Due to the obvious threat of troops with flamethrowers, they were often targeted first. This was countered by an attempt to camouflage the system; by covering the fuel tanks with fabric to mimic a supply pack and even hiding the shaft inside of a makeshift rifle stock. This made the flamethrower user look like a regular infantryman.
Thought of the Day: Reason begets doubt; Doubt begets heresy.
Even when the scale doesn’t change, the image in the mirror looks the same, when you feel like all of your efforts are for nothing, they’re not. Slowly, your body changes day by day. Your goals creep up on you until one day you look at an old progress picture and realize your words have become actions, your hopes have become reality and it was all worth it.
