21 July 1918

The German U-boat U-156, attacks several merchant vessels near Orleans, Massachusetts. On the morning of 21 July, U-156 surfaced three miles off of coast of Cape Cod. After spotting the tugboat Perth Amboy towing three barges, the German submarine began engaging the small vessel. During the attack, U-156 sunk the tugboat and barges. Additional shells struck the beach, resulting in minimal damage. Coast Guard and naval assets were dispatched to engage the submarine and rescue the merchantmen. While U-156 was able to escape unscathed, the Coast Guard response was able to save all the merchantmen from the sunken tugboat. See MoreSee Less

The concept for the British khaki tunic came from British soldiers in India dying their white summer uniforms. The word “khaki” is derived from the Hindi word for dust. In 1885 the British issued the khaki tunic as an experimental uniform for troops serving overseas. While the British had traditionally worn a red tunic, the khaki tunic was intended to blend into the surrounding environment. It would later be adopted for American troops serving during the Spanish-American War in 1898. See MoreSee Less

14 July 1789

French revolutionaries storm the Bastille, helping spark the French Revolution. By the summer of 1789, the atmosphere in France was shifting toward revolution. Plagued by severe economic problems and food shortages, the lower classes in France began to turn against the monarchy. On 17 June, the Third Estate (the lower classes of France that made up 98 percent of the population) formed the National Assembly with the purpose of creating a French constitution. Weeks later it was renamed the National Constituent Assembly. Tensions peaked on 14 July. French revolutionaries stormed the Hotel des Invalides in hopes of seizing the weapons and gunpowder stored there. Discovering the gunpowder had been transferred to the Bastille, the revolutionaries attacked the medieval fortress. While the defenders of the Bastille were initially able to hold off the revolutionaries, the arrival of five cannons supported by French army deserters encouraged the garrison’s commander to surrender. With the capture of the Bastille, momentum grew for the French Revolution. See MoreSee Less

Axis forces began their first raids (Störangriffe) on Britain following the Fall of France in late June 1940.These initial raids were small scale attacks, targeting British vessels in the English Channel and probing English air defenses. By 10 July 1940, the attacks increased, with most historians marking this date as the beginning of the Battle of Britain. The Battle of Britain would last until 31 October 1940. During this period Allied pilots defended the skies over the United Kingdom. The Allies would lose nearly 1,700 aircraft, and 1,500 pilots and aircrew, while the Axis air forces would lose nearly 2,000 aircraft and over 2,500 pilots and aircrew. By achieving victory in the Battle of Britain, the Allies helped encourage the German command to call off Operation Sealion (the invasion of the British Isles). See MoreSee Less
