DestoFante turns 40 today. I missed the '60s by four days and three hours, and I share the birthday with fellow economist Jean-Baptiste Say (b. 1767), German Chancellor Konrad Adenauer (b. 1876), King Juan Carlos of Spain (b. 1938), and Diane Keaton. The day appears to be void of any significant event in military history, other than the battle of Colmar/Turckheim, fought on January 5 1675, which resulted in the victory of the French forces under the Vicomte of Turenne over the Brandenburgian and Austrian armies commanded by the elector of Brandenburg, Frederick William.
Here an early picture of mine from August 1970.
