Welcome to the Kill count series of Violent but True stories. We’re going to be telling stories of American toughness, endurance and well…Grit. As Freedom month starts we’re taking some time to count the cost of freedom the best way we know. With a nice history lesson wrapped in some dark, dark humor. From the battle of Yorktown to Okinawa, there was alot of killin’ done. Episode one is Yorktown, so we’ll see you there, you bloodthirsty sweethearts!
From Yorktown to Okinawa, the road to victory was paved with American blood, sweat and tears. Commemorate the battlefields of the past with our poster series. Included are selections from Yorktown, the Frozen Chosin, Ia Drang and Okinawa.
The final, and decisive engagement that sent the redcoats back to Britain with even less teeth than they started the Revolutionary war with – Yorktown started a long tradition of American badassery.SHOP THE POSTER
This is the first, no holds barred, full on battle of the Vietnam war. This battle was a trendsetter for the air cav – and for the use of overwhelming firepower to hold back wave after wave of determined enemy forces.SHOP THE POSTER
We’re gonna level with you. If Ia Drang was all about heat and fire, the Battle of the Chosin reservoir was all about cold and ice. This was a miserable, meat-grinder of a battle.SHOP THE POSTER
Okinawa was so bad we straight up said, “ok. Let’s try nukes now.” It was a rotten, stinking slog through maggot infested mud, suicidal ambushes and constant terror for everyone involved. War is fun! Tune in!SHOP THE POSTER
