Here’s How Knitting Was Used As A Tool To Spy On Enemies During Wartime
29 jul 2019 14:14

It may come as a surprise, but knitting and war have a lot more in common than one may think. In many countries including the United States, wartime has almost always involved knitters. Back in the day, women were encouraged to support troops from home by knitting socks and hats for them. However, even though knitting has been always associated with an innocent hobby of older ladies, during conflicts, it became much more than that.

At first glance, this looks like an ordinary day in a small village with people enjoying the sun outside
15 mar 2018 09:20

During World War 2, one B-17 Bomber cost a little over $200,000 to produce. That’s about $3,4 million in today’s economy. And since the US Army requested thousands of these planes, they wanted to take every measure when securing the Boeing factory that produced them. And by “every measure” I mean hiring Hollywood set designers to build a fake neighborhood atop it and getting actors to inhabit the area.
