1st place
B-24 Liberator by rahto

Dunstickin: Congrats on the win Robert...I did enjoy this one.

Nikoneer: The Witchcraft was assigned to the 467th Bomb Group, 790 Bomb Squadron. The bomb graphics on the fuselage indicate the number of bombing runs this particular plane made during its career. Not being sure if the number 130 referred to the runs, I took the time to count them... yep, 130. In WWII, crews were allowed to rotate home (or to another duty) after 25 missions. That being said, Witchcraft obviously remained in operation for many crews and is currently the only Liberator still flying. During WWII, the U.S. lost 218 bombers in Europe, as opposed to 12,037 lost for Germany. This one definitely qualifies for the contest, Robert, particularly for an old war historian like me. Good luck with her.

5th place
Dewey Defeats Truman by 0930_23

Ramad: A rare picture and a very good entry for the contest Tick. How a newspaper can print such headline is beyond my imagination.

LynEve: Excellent entry Tick !!

WTFlack: Many Congratulations on fifth place

corngrowth: ---Thomas E. Dewey, New York Governor, was heavily favored and Harry S. Truman's win was considered a major upset---

Owd Fella Tick (OFT), without giving any opinion from my side, the history has repeated itself actually in 2016,with the difference that the Republicans have won the 2016 election.

Good entry for the current History contest.
Wish you Good Luck with it!
